‘Bumblebee’ Trailer: A Mystical Bond Between Woman And Machine

The trailer gives a nod to Bernie Mac's character from the first Transformers movie.

Much like his in-ring character, you can't see much of John Cena in the 2-minute trailer promoting his upcoming appearance in the new Transformers movie "Bumblebee". Following the critical and financial disaster of Transformers: The Last Knight, the future of the Transformers universe is uncertain. It also further evokes the film's nostalgic approach to the Transformers franchise. Looking at the quality of recent films in the franchise, this may be a blessing in disguise.

Hailee Steinfeld stars as a teen who is befriended by Bumblebee, who appears in his original form of a Volkswagen Beetle.

"You've got people out there who need you".

This is a big moment for a lot of Transformers fans who aren't fans of Michael Bay's version of the transforming robots. We'll find out whether Bumblebee is the start of that when it hits United Kingdom cinemas on 21 December. The studio tapped LAIKA CEO and Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight to make his live-action directing debut on the pic, which finds Hailee Steinfeld taking on the lead human role in a story that takes place in the 1980s.

The pic is set in 1987, where we find Bumblebee in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town.

The trailer leads with Charlie (Steinfeld) finding a yellow VW Beetle in a junkyard as a familiar quote echoes, reminding us that the driver doesn't pick the vehicle; the auto picks the driver.
