The first trailer and one-sheet for Bumblebee have dropped. We get our first look at the transformation sequence for Bumblebee and it’s startling how much this looks with some better designs and direction. It’s still not entirely clear what the plot is going to be exactly but the central relationship between Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) and Bumblebee looks like it’s going to be pretty cute. As for whether or not the movie as a whole is going to work is still up for debate.
Summary: On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken.
Bumblebee, directed by Travis Knight, stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Rachel Crow, and Pamela Adlon. It will be released on December 21st.
