So the live-action TRANSFORMERS movies have been less than stellar… and they just seem to get worse and worse with each installment. And honestly, with not holding my breath on BUMBLEBEE either. That feeling just seems more warranted with Paramount removing the 7th TRANSFORMERS movie from their calendar (BUMBLEBEE being the 6th)… starting to think the studio is realizing the movies suck too.
BUT then comes the new trailer for BUMBLEBEE, and with it, OG TRANSFORMERS! Check out the trailer below.
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.
That’s right, an OG Soundwave, Shockwave, OPTIMUS PRIME, and even a pseudo-OG Starscream. Not gonna lie, seeing them made the kid in me squeal with joy. Still don’t know if that’s enough for me to get to the theatre, but it was definitely fun to see!
BUMBLEBEE opens on Christmas.
