Blimey! Watch Optimus Prime try to Transform his accent

A short clip shows the gigantic Transformers leader working with an exasperated British dialect coach.

No matter how big you are, you never stop learning. In a 30-second clip released Sunday by "Transformers: The Last Knight," gigantic Transformers leader Optimus Prime struggles to master a British accent with the assistance of a distinguished dialect coach.

The coach has that famous courage that helped the Brits through World War II, and isn't backing down even when threatened by the enormous creature who could crush her like a bug. Without giving anything away, let's just say Prime is no Meryl Streep.

"Transformers: The Last Knight" opens June 23 in the US and UK and June 22 in Australia. And remember, filmmaker Michael Bay said there are 14 more Transformers stories coming.
