Bumblebee movie trailer: Even Transformers get Rickrolled

Bumblebee

Bumblebee

Since 2007, Hollywood's one, true vision for Hasbro's Transformers has been led by a single creator: Michael Bay.

Paramount Pictures has debuted the first teaser trailer and poster for director Travis Knight's upcoming live-action Transformers spinoff Bumblebee; check them out here... Paramount will release "Bumblebee" in theaters on December 21.

"Hey, what's up? This is John Cena from the new movie Bumblebee".

Discovery Inks International Deal for PGA Tour Golf Rights
It has acquired a trove of intellectual property, including the European rights to the Olympics through 2024 for $1.4 billion. While known for unscripted programming like "Shark Week", Discovery is focused on becoming a global TV sports giant.

As you can tell from this first trailer, which feels more like "A Girl and Her Robot" story than any of Bay's high-octane, often incomprehensible action-packed smash-em-ups, and I'm here for it.

Set twenty years before the events of the first film, in 1987, Bumblebee: The Movie follows the autobot - a sentient mechanical self-configuring robotic lifeform - as he takes refuge in a small California beach town junkyard before meeting Charlie.

The trailer gives a nod to Bernie Mac's character from the first Transformers movie. Hailee Steinfeld stars as Charlie, along with John Cena, Martin Short, Pamela Adlon, Megyn Price, Kenneth Choi, and John Ortiz. Charlie takes Bumblebee, seen in his Volkswagen Beetle form as he appeared on the 1980s Transformers cartoon, to the auto shop where she works, nurses him back to health, and shines him up to his former glory - all the while learning that the cutesy vehicle she found herself in possession of is far more than just an ordinary VW Bug.
