An action-packed new Transformers: The Last Knight trailer has landed.

Paramount has unveiled the second full-length taster of the fifth Transformers outing for our viewing pleasure.

Sir Anthony Hopkins's Sir Edmund Burton, a historian who lives with Autobots, states in the voiceover: "It started as a legend, one of the greatest of all. A thousand years, we've kept it hidden to protect Earth from what was destined to arrive."

The trailer gives an extended look at Optimus Prime and Bumblebee's epic battle on what looks to be on top of a ship – obviously – with Mark Wahlberg's returning Cade Yeager stuck in the middle of it.

It's the "secret history" of the Transformers that holds the key to humanity's survival, as The Last Knight takes place when humans and Transformers are at war and Optimus Prime isn't on their side anymore.

Saving the world falls to Cade, the ever-faithful Bumblebee, Hopkins's Sir Edmund, and Oxford professor Vivian Wembley, played by Laura Haddock.

Last month, a new video introduced us to the film's badass female hero, 15-year-old Izabella (played by Isabela Moner).

She definitely impressed us when we caught 25 bonkers minutes of The Last Knight earlier this month, with it looking like Izzy could go on a Rey-from-Force Awakens type journey in the film.

And talking of praise, Hopkins has been bigging up Transformers director Michael Bay, calling him a "genius".

"He's the same ilk as Oliver Stone and [Steven] Spielberg and [Martin] Scorsese. Brilliance. Savants, really, they are. He's a savant," he enthused.

Transformers: The Last Knight arrives in cinemas on June 22.
