The first trailer for the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee has arrived, and it’s action-packed and heartwarming. Check out the trailer below.
Overall it was fine, although I do take issue with the weird moment at the beginning that features a voiceover of Bernie Mac’s character. Doesn’t this film take place before Transformers 1? Why was that put in there? It just felt weird and out of place for me, especially when the scene itself was never incredibly uplifting or iconic.
The movie stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena (Ferdinand), John Ortiz (Kong: Skull Island), and Kenneth Choi (Spider-Man: Homecoming).
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.
Bumblebee will hit theaters on December 21, 2018
