The Transformers franchise is known for large-scale action, and it looks like the upcoming sequel, Transformers: The Last Knight, will keep up that legacy thanks to some of the best camera equipment on the market.

In a new, behind-the-scenes featurette, Transformers director Michael Bay reveals how his crew used the ARRI Alexa 65 digital camera to make The Last Knight (aka Transformers 5) the franchise’s biggest, baddest film yet.

Bay shot 98% of the film in IMAX, which he says makes The Last Knight the first blockbuster to do so. And, judging by the trailers, it definitely paid off.

“It’s amazing the world that Michael has created,” says Mark Wahlberg, star of the film and Men’s Fitness cover veteran, in the featurette. “He continues to make them bigger and better.”

Watch the entire featurette below:

Catch Transformers: The Last Knight, starring Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, and Isabela Moner, in theaters June 21.
