Returning to the cast are Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, and Stanley Tucci. Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, and Isabela Moner are some of the new faces joining this big-budget production.

The film features many great locations. Transformers: The Last Knight was filmed in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Norway, Cuba, and the United States. Here are some of the most relevant filming locations:

Packard Automotive Plant battle scene

Detroit downtown street stunt
In Detroit downtown, the crew was shooting near the former State Savings Bank building at Griswold Street.

Other filming locations in Detroit included the Michigan Central Station, Cafe D'Mongo's, and the Motown Motion Picture Studios.

Transformers Pontiac Silverdome stadium
The production didn't need to transform the abandoned Pontiac Silverdome stadium into a battlefield: it already looks like it has been through a war.

The Silverdome was closed for the first time in 2006. The roof collapsed after a winter storm in 2013 and now the entire structure is about to be demolished this summer.
