I am really happy about seeing director Travis Knight‘s Bumblebee movie. So far everything is great and it looks just perfect! Not only does it visually look wonderful, but it looks like there’s actually a logical story to follow!
Today we’ve got a new poster to share with you featuring Bumblebee and Hailee Steinfeld as Charlie. Here’s the synopsis:
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.
We recently learned at the Comic-Con that Bumblebee has escaped from Cybertron to Earth and he’s being chased down by a Decepticon jet. We thought this jet from the trailers was Starscream, but it’s not. It’s another Decepticon named Blitzwing.
We also learned that two other Decepticon villains, Shatter and Dropkick, who are voiced by Angela Basset and Justin Theroux are also hunting Bumblebee, and they team up with the U.S. military to try to catch him, which is where John Cena comes in. These characters are triple-changer transformers! They turn into muscle cars, as well as a Harrier jet and helicopter.
We also know that the generation one Optimus Prime will show up in some potential.
Bumblebee will hit theaters on December 21, 2018.
