Paramount Pictures released the new Bumblebee movie poster and a new promo spot that asks tells audiences to “Discover the origin of a hero.” That hero is obviously Bumblebee.
The movie looks fine but I don’t think it will break any box office records or opening day records, but as far as I have seen it seems like a decent enough movie, which will be quite fun to watch.

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.
It was also revealed that Bumblebee has escaped from Cybertron to Earth and he’s being hunted down by a Decepticon jet named Blitzwing.
We also learned that two other Decepticon villains, Shatter and Dropkick, who is 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.
Bumblebee opens December 21, 2018.
