CinemaCon is currently happening in the US, a mecca and celebration of all new movies coming out in the next year or so. One of those movies happens to be the upcoming Bumblebee film, and for the first time ever fans were shown a quick glimpse of the new installment. Below is not only some critic reactions from Twitter, but actually a synopsis of the footage shown from Comicbook.com! Responses seem to be very positive, with some getting excited as the teaser appeared to show a return of Starscream! Stay tuned later this week, as a teaser trailer has been rumored to drop soon!

An alarm goes off at 8:00 AM. Charlie shuts it off, unhappily waking up. Her room is covered in posters. She rocks out with headphones on while brushing her teeth. In the garage, her car is playing the same song. When she enters, it stops.

A piece of the car hits the floor. She look beneath it. Getting on a board with wheels, she slides under the car. Ultimately, she finds Bee’s face, which lights up in the eyes and stands up above her. She’s shocked. This thing fits in the garage! They have a standoff. Bee stumbles around. She reaches for the door handle but sees he is just stumbling around and scared as he huddles himself into the corner.

She approaches and says, “Hi.” Bee chirps back. He’s still scared and avoiding her in the corner. “Do you speak?: she asks. Bee nods to indicate he does not. He stands up, holding his neck, after seeing the wrench in her hand. He analyzes her hands and comes closer, allowing them to touch his face. He can understand her. “What are you?” she asks. “Where did you come from?” He shies away from answering. He points to her shirt. He is asking who she is. “I’m Charlie,” she tells him. “Charlie Watson, I’m 18 today. Actually, it’s my birthday today. What’s your name?” He shies away, with his ears going down. She rules, “You sound like a little bumblebee.” That’s what she’s going to call him from now on. “Matches your outfit, too,” she says.

Later, clips of Bee running from a helicopter, trucks exploding, Bee playing on the beach, driving Charlie around, and other Transformers cut into the frame. A red and white winged Transformer is fighting him. He uses his arm cannon. He fights fighter jets. Charlie does her best to help him. He lands in a desert

Lol at parts of the tweets. They seem to not be very aware of other franchises aside from the Movies and G1. Not a bad thing, but it makes me wish people like more experienced TF fans (from this site, TFWiki, and TFW2005) jumped into the fun, and not critics who are more invested in the MCU or Star Wars.

Despite the positive reactions I’m seeing, I’ll still keep my expectations a little low. I don’t want to be disappointed again.

Actually prototypes and early production versions were made in the early eighties
The f15e was the last version made in 1987
So yeah we could be seeing a f15 Screamer :michaelbay:

First movie "coming of age" rehash. It was dumb then and it is dumb now.

Thanks to Seibertronian and news staffer William-James88 we are able to share with you an article on the upcoming film. Collider.com did an interview with the one and only John Cena and Director Travis Knight about Bumblebee: The movie. One interesting thing that can be learned from this is that there will supposedly be some Easter eggs relating to the Bay flicks.

In Travis Knight's interview he mentions that he grew up with Transformers and had some figures. He also tells us that there is a more limited cast of characters. John Cena is a little harder to hear but he is familiar with Transformers and claims to have owned some growing up. He sounds excited and wants to keep from spoiling which characters will be in the movie because he thinks it will be more exciting for the fans to be surprised.

Anyone else find it odd that we're nearly halfway through the year and barely any marketing material has been shown for this film? I dunno maybe other films have just been spoiling us lately.

I think it's a little early for marketing material considering it comes out in December. The hype will probably start at the end of summer or so I would think. There's been some big movies in the sci-fi action genre lately - Black Panther and Infinity War to name two. If it were me marketing this film I'd wait till at least July/August to advertise.

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.
