While the plot line was apparently appealing in conception for the next edition of the Transformers series in Transformers: The Last Knight, which focused around ancient English folklore and the similarity King Arthur and Merlin and their tryst with the Transformers together with WWII foundations, the movie needs to have done much better than it really performed in 2017.

Coming to second on this list is a movie that even the most ardent Tyler Perry fans (if there are any) would firmly insist is rubbish.
