Another Awesome New Trailer for Travis Knight's 'Bumblebee' Movie
"This is how we stop them. You've got me… and I'm not going anywhere." Paramount has debuted the full-length, official trailer for Travis Knight's Bumblebee, the new spin-off movie from the Transformers series that's set in the 1980s. The first teaser is fantastic, but this looks even better. Even though they do introduce two other Transformer robots who will be the bad guys. The film is about the friendship between a young woman named Charlie and Bumblebee, on the run and living inside a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Hailee Steinfeld stars as Charlie, along with John Cena, Martin Short, Pamela Adlon, Megyn Price, Kenneth Choi, and John Ortiz. This is the first live-action feature from Laika's Travis Knight, and there's no Michael Bay around, and it looks damn good. Like really, really shockingly good. I'm so into this.
Here's the full-length trailer (+ new poster) for Travis Knight's Bumblebee, direct from YouTube:
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge inside 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 is directed by American filmmaker Travis Knight, who co-founded the stop-motion studio Laika and directed their film Kubo and the Two Strings. This is his first live-action feature. The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson. Paramount will release Bumblebee in theaters everywhere starting on December 21st, just in time for Christmas this year. Still looking good? Planning to see this?

Hey, this might actually be a revival of the Transformers movie genre... I also like the "classic" look of the transformers throughout, the jagged stickiness of the earlier movies was somtimes too distracting and one did not know which robot he was watching...

This is so fantastic. Why did it take this long to get somebody that understands what Transformers is all about?

Looks like Transformers are not bad enough, There's a need for something worse ...

To be honest, I wasn't. I was a teenager in 80's, but those things didn't really interest me. But I am fan of good film making, and making those toys (in fact, for me) into movies looks just bad. However, I understand a thrill from so many people about it. But no, that's not even close to be my cup of tea. As for you, go enjoy it ...

Did they really think giving us an old school G1 Soundwave in this trailer would get our butts in the seat ... well, yes, yes it will! Hopefully this serves as a soft reboot for the franchise. At least the trailer has some heart which the Bay films lacked.

Holy crap...this actually LOOKS like a Transformers movie that reflects the animated series!! I didn't think it was possible! Man.... I was expecting another Bay blast-fest...but this...this could be really cool. Also, that tracking shot and the end with Hailee running from Bumblebee and the Decepticon fighting was pretty rad...

These are completely on different sides of the film "ocean" my friend. One is popcorn and bubblegum, the other is whiskey and ribs lol.

Looks very good. Steinfeld looks good too. I wish she would take on more dramatic work.

First time I've been interested in the franchise since the first movie. It's nice to see them actually resemble the originals. Not a theater trip for me, but I'll probably Redbox it.
