Via specialised site for cinema music Film Music Reporter, and one of their brief updates, we have news about who will be scoring the next - and for now last in this narrative universe - Paramount live action movie featuring the Transformers: Bumblebee The Movie.

According to the source, composer Dario Marianelli - who has worked on Kubo and The Two Strings with director Travis Knight previously - will be taking the helm for the score, though we are also to expect some 80s style rock according to previous coverage and initial images from the movie (if going by Hailee Steinfeld's attire, in any case, and Bumblebee's direction for vocal interaction via radio snippets). Check out more info below!

Dario Marianelli has been tapped to score the upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. The film is directed by Travis Knight and stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Rachel Crow, Pamela Adlon, Stephen Schneider, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn and Grace Dzienny. The movie is set in 1987 and follows a teenage girl trying to find her place in the world as she discovers Bumblebee refuged in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Christina Hodson (Unforgettable, Shut In) wrote the screenplay. Michael Bay who helmed all the previous Transformers movies (scored by Steve Jablonsky) is producing the project with Knight, Lorenzo di Bonaventura (RED, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Stephen Davis (Ouija: Origin of Evil). Marianelli has previously collaborated with Knight on LAIKA’s 2016 feature Kubo and the Two Strings. Bumblebee is set to be released on December 21, 2018 by Paramount Pictures.

Marianelli (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, Darkest Hour, V for Vendetta, Anna Karenina) has also recently scored the Italian drama Nome di donna, which opened in Italian theaters this past March. No word yet on a domestic release.

TBH the Bumblebee Movie looks really promising so far. The composer is decent and the movie doesn't raise any red flags so far. The trailer I've heard was really good. I'm just waiting for a trailer release to make my final say. I'm obviously gonna see it tho

Of all we've heard of it so far sounds like what I originally imagined (and kinda wanted) what the first movie from 2007 would be like.

I've heard that one before.

I really don't understand why they are trying to end Bayverse, yet they are wasting time and money on this stillborn zombie.

What do you mean trying? Bumblebee is the last movie set there. As to why they didn't can this, well, they had already pumped the money into it so might as well see it through, at the very least we'll see what happens when you have someone else in charge.

We have a new piece of vital news for those following the vital updates on this story - a new logo change / reveal for the Bumblebee movie, at least in terms of the licensed and toy products associated with the Transformers live action spin-off feature.

You'll remember we initially had the angry bee logo showing up for a numeber of stories, including this one here, and that seemed to be it; a recent post then showed a cleaner version for products, with the second B capitalised as the first. It looks like this latter style is the one used by Hasbro during the Licensing Expo 2018, according to the event's Twitter account, and you can check it out below!

The various Transformers Movie social medias have started to post a series of promotional videos from the cast and crew of the upcoming Bumblebee movie. There are two out currently, one from cast member John Cena and the other from director Travis Knight. It's likely that there will be more down the line, potentially from other cast like Hailee Steinfeld. These videos also confirm that the first trailer for the film are premiering tomorrow, so definitely stay tuned to Seibertron.com for news as to when that drops! Check out the two embeded below, and check back later to see if any others have been posted!

This piece of live-action news may have also been skimmed over in the past week, but with the first actual trailer for the Paramount Transformers universe Bumblebee Movie due out this Tuesday 5th June, it's definitely worth covering!

Via KidsCoolIt website, in which kids do the reporting and framing, we get some type of confirmation that Barricade - the villainous character that first approaches the human cast in the 2007 live action movie - will be back (?) in the 80s set prequel this Christmas, as his voice actor Jess Harnell is introduced as such and answers a couple of fan questions; check out the clip below, and let us know your thoughts in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

Oh I mentioned that in the Studio Series thread a week ago but didn't realise it hadnt been a news thing til now. Trailers up by the way. :)




NOt sure i like Bee's new robot design. Bit too basic for me but eh it's still my Bee. Starscream looks neat (if a bit too G1 for my tastes but that should please some folk). Movie looks fun but they I've enjoyed all the 5 main ones too so that's just me. :)

I've been watching it on loop for past 20 mins (warming to Bee's new design now even if it is more kiddy-robot than the more badass design he had before but that makes sense even if just cos this is in the 80s). I do love how she's looking under the car and finds his eyes and they light up and he transforms. That's a neat transformation scene. Time being confirmed as latter half of 1987 by Rick Astley. :P

As of midnight here in the pacific time zone, Paramount Pictures has posted the very first trailer for the upcoming Bumblebee: The Movie on Youtube. A quick acknowledgement to Carnivius_Prime for noticing the trailer had been submitted. We have posted it below for your viewing pleasure.

In this two minute clip fans will notice a difference in the atmosphere of this film in comparison to the past five live-action films directed by Michael Bay. Instead of the rough, action packed flicks we are used to this preview seems to hint at a sense of wonder. Have a look and tell us what you think!

I'm getting rick roll'd and its 2018!

I'll admit I have some hopes for this flick. It looks like its got some real potential. It has a good sense of wonder. Kinda makes me think of ET in a way. I like TF series better where Transformers are sentient robots rather than just war machines. I love a good robot fight but its the characters that draw me in and keep my interest in the series.

If they can make this movie as good as the trailer makes it look we could have a major success. I think it does matter how they advertise too. Make sure people know the movie is different from the previous five so they don't dismiss it.

You are welcome. Gave you the news credit as a kudos since you probably technically found it first.

Not generally a fan of the movies, but this actually doesn't look half bad. Especially like what Starscream looks like from what I can tell by his short appearance. Might actually end up going to see this one :lol:
