New Bumblebee trailer features Optimus Prime

New Bumblebee trailer features Optimus Prime”

The clip sees teenage mechanic Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld) arrive at a junkyard and take home the auto that ends up transforming into the titular robot, with the two forming a bond as Charlie helps Bumblebee fight back against the film's villains.

Travis Knight directs from a screenplay by Christina Hodson and Kelly Fremon Craig (story by Hodson).

"On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town", the film's official synopsis reads.

Said one person: "This film looks very much like the answer to the question 'Well if you don't like the Michael Bay Transformers films, what the hell kind of Transformers film DO you want?'"

To be fair though, this seems like the same "child and their dog" story that audiences have seen hundreds of times, the "child" played by True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld, and the dog here is replaced by an alien cybernetic robot that turns into a damn vehicle.

Other stars involved include Rachel Crow, formerly of The X Factor USA; plus Jorge Lendebog Jr, John Ortiz and Pamela Adlon. Nonetheless, audiences won't have to wait long for another robots-in-disguise extravaganza, since Bumblebee will be racing into theaters this December. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns that this is no ordinary yellow Volkswagen.

Production on Bumblebee began in July 2017 in California. Let us know what you think of the first Transformers movie spinoff in the comments!

But man, did you see those classic G1 Transformers design in that trailer?

The Transformers series, despite good box office collections, has suffered from bad reviews - but this new prequel, without Michael Bay, could be its best entry yet.
