New TV Spot For BUMBLEBEE Features Optimus Prime, Soundwave and Ravage
We’ve got a new international TV spot for the upcoming Bumblebee film for you to watch today. It may be very short but it’s packed full of new footage! That footage includes Optimus Prime, Soundwave, Ravage, and it even gives us a glimpse of Cybertron!
Not only is this movie going to tell a great story and actually give the fans some decent character development, but the designs of the Transformers are freakin’ rad! Director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) actually brought to life the designs of the original animated series, which is what the fans wanted in the first place! I excited about this movie!
This promo teases that a new trailer is coming tomorrow, so stay tuned for that. Check it out!
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. We thought this jet from the trailers was Starscream, but it's not. It's another Decepticon 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.
