Transformers: The Last Knight | In cinemas June 22
See the reactions of Dulwich Picture Gallery visitors when a Transformer mysteriously appeared in an 1815 painting over the weekend.Posted by Transformers on Sunday, June 11, 2017
We've seen some good stunts from film companies over the years, but this one has to be one of the best. Visitors to the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London found themselves very confused when they noticed that a painting from 1815 featured a "strange apparition." Many visitors quickly identified the "Space Odyssey thing" as a Transformer, leading to plenty of laughs as they speculated why an old painting would depict a cult '80s toy. The kids, of course, are the fastest off the mark, despite the fact one adult (presumably their teacher) is convinced it's "part of a boat that's sinking".
The painting was placed in the gallery (along with a hidden camera, natch) to promote the upcoming film Transformers: The Last Knight, in which it's revealed that Transformers have been living on Earth for hundreds of years. As the trailer states, "to save our future, we must unlock the past." Does this mean we'll be seeing more Transformers cropping up around the capital in the next few weeks? We can but hope! Keep your eyes peeled: the film hits UK cinemas on 22 June.
