New BUMBLEBEE Poster and Promo Spot - "Discover the Origin of a Hero"
Paramount Pictures continues the marketing blast for their new Bumblebee movie by releasing a new poster for the film and a new promo spot that asks tells audiences to “Discover the origin of a hero.” That hero is obviously Bumblebee.
Apparently, the opening weekend box office number for this film aren’t looking good, which is why it makes sense to see the studio pushing it a little hard in preparation for its release. I hope people show up to watch this movie because it looks like the best Transformers movie yet!
If the movie doesn’t do well, I have to blame those Michael Bay films that killed people’s interest in the franchise. Check out the new promo below and hit us up with your thoughts!
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
It was also revealed that Bumblebee has escaped from Cybertron to Earth and he's being hunted down by a Decepticon jet named Blitzwing.
We also learned that two other Decepticon villains, Shatter and Dropkick, who are voiced by Angela Basset and Justin Theroux are also hunting Bumblebee, and they team up with the U.S. military to try to catch him, which is where John Cena comes in. These characters are triple-changer transformers! They turn into muscle cars, as well as a Harrier jet and helicopter.
Bumblebee opens December 21, 2018.
