'Transformers: The Last Knight' Trailer Features Eerie Flaming Lips Cover (Week in Review)

The Flaming Lips

'Transformers: The Last Knight' Trailer Features Eerie Flaming Lips Cover was a Top 3 story on Wednesday: (Radio.com) When the trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight debuted during Monday Night Football (Dec. 5) fans were immediately struck by two questions. Why is Optimus Prime fighting Bumble Bee and what is that eerie song playing throughout the two-minute trailer?
Narrated by Anthony Hopkins, the powerful trailer is set to a cover of The Flaming Lips 2002 song, "Do You Realize," as performed by 25 year-old British film director and composer, Frederick Lloyd (aka Ursine Vulpine). If the cover sounds vaguely familiar, it may be because it was also featured in the Penny Dreadful Season 3 trailer.

Specializing in atmospheric soundscapes, Lloyd's music has also been featured in theatrical trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Mad Max: Fury Road, Fantastic Four, Captain Phillips and Zero Dark Thirty to name a few, as well TV spots and teasers for films such as American Sniper, Serena and Creed.
