Bumblebee is in theaters December 21, 2018
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.

If you consider that AoE and TLK opted for more smooth and humanoid designs, this actually fits. I admit I was confused at first, but once I realized it was real I was so so happy.
People, this is a reboot. Call it that or not, they're TRYING to break continuity of design. Remember when Marvel redesigned Hulk in the MCU? Yes Tony Stark appeared in The Incredible Hulk, and just like with this Transformers movie, Marvel intentionally forgot about that movie's ideas and designs WITHOUT ruining the plot continuity too much, EVEN with the change of an actor for Bruce Banner. I think a series of giant TRANSFORMING METAL ROBOTS who can CHANGE THEIR DESIGNS PURPOSEFULLY makes MUCH more sense to experiment with, and can work beautifully.
Plus this is an incredible way to kickstart the possibility of successful Transformers movies once again by adding LITERAL familiar faces to make jaded fans to the movies become more curious, AND to draw many new fans into the brand as a whole by giving them a big screen representation (or remake) of that original cartoon in a way. It works, and it works beautifully, regardless of everyone who don't want their pissing and swearing messes of metal to be touched with the ichiness of those horrrrribly outdaaated Saturday morning caartewwns. (And yes, I do enjoy SOME of the movie designs. Hell, I loved Dark of the Moon.)
Also shatup, Astrotrain looks awesome.

Isn't it a little late for that?
What are they gonna do just suddenly take it out of the movie? Go back in time to change it?
As much as I like the previous films we have had 5 films for us, I think it's time for a little fanservice for those who haven't had a live action version of the G1 designs.
Where did you see astrotrain?

This still features Bumblebee meeting Charlie's dog, Conan (yes, Conan), and the still is accompanied by some commentary indication Bumblebee is trying to understand what a dog is and how to communicate with him. We have had very few cute characters and moments in the films to date, and this movie appears to be piling it on.
The Bumblebee movie is set to release on December 21 of this year, and we have plenty of indications that this will be an entirely new type of movie complete with a lot of cute stuff, a lot of heart, a pinch of nostalgia, and maybe a really good story and movie altogether.
Check out the still below, along with the accompanying text, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
Named after Arnie’s iconic action hero (“with the proper pronunciation like the awesome Barbarian, not the awesome talk-show host,” confirms director Travis Knight), the canine companion is just another thing for Bumblebee to try and get his metal head around when he joins forces with Charlie. “When Bumblebee encounters this creature, he tries to figure out how to communicate with him,” Knight tells Empire in the upcoming Review of the Year issue. “Him just trying to exist in a normal human domicile does not go very well.”
From the trailers, Bumblebee is looking like a warmer, more Amblin-esque entry into the series, and is the first live-action Transformers movie not to be directed by Michael Bay. Read Empire’s Bumblebee trailer breakdown with Travis Knight here, and read plenty more about the film in the December issue of Empire, on sale on 1 November.

The image released for the track shares all the colour cues for the movie along with a picture of Bee himself.
What do you think of the track? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews. Don't forget to #jointhebuzz for the Bumblebee movie, in cinemas worldwide in December.

That page is talking about specifically the comet/meteor modes as the Transition forms, not the rocky robot modes of the Protoforms.Decepticon Stryker wrote:So I remember saying during the whole craze of the G1 designs that the protoforms we say in the first movie were probably forms they adapted for travel and not their actual cybertronian forms. And it turns out I'm partially right: https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Transition_form This actually gives a canon explanation as to how we can have G1 style Cybertronian forms despite their appearance in the first movie.

Why does any of this matter? We already know that they can change their looks, so the fact that they once looked different really doesnt need any explanation.

He did it in all five of the movies with goo goo dolls, linkin park and imagine dragons. He detests when songs are recorded for a movie and then wasted in the credits or trailers.
It's Dario Marianelli this time round doing the music.

The first news is regarding Hailee Sheinfeld and her new song 'Back to Life', which is set to be playing in the Bumblebee movie coming out in December. Steinfeld hosted this years MTV EMA Awards, and during the show, she performed her new song for the first time.
To make this Awards show even better, it aired a brand new TV spot for the Bumblebee movie, a 1-minute long commercial in Spanish. This new TV spot mostly reuses scenes we have seen in other trailers, but it does contain some new scenes. Among the new things are a few more scenes of the Cybertron setting, including what appears to be Thundercracker getting smacked down by Optimus Prime. We also see a shot of Bumblebee attempting to toilet paper a house, and not really getting the idea. It does appear to be a shortened version of our standard 2 minute commercials, which lines up with the news of a final trailer getting ready to drop here soon.
Check out both videos below, and let us know what you think of them in the comments section below!

This new poster is a drastic departure from the movie posters of the last few years, especially those related to Transformers. This poster features a very clean and non-cluttered appearance, with Bumblebee, Charlie, Agent Burns, and a big Autobot Symbol taking up the majority of the poster. The bottom features the California sunset with the Golden Gate Bridge in full view and Charlie and Bee looking out over the bay area.
Also, a nice subtle addition is the fact that we have Shatter and Dropkick in their aerial forms on the poster, a rarity for the Transformers seeing as how the movies main antagonists are hardly, if ever, on the posters themselves in any way.
There are also slight German and Russian variations on this poster design as well. The German poster includes Blitzwing in jet mode and German in place of English, while the Russian drops Agent Burns and the Decepticons. The German poster was found over at Comic Book Resources.

As many fans will remember, the previous 5 movies included text related to "intense sequences of sci-fi action violence, brief sexual humor, and language." This film, however, only contains the very brief description "Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action violence."
So what this means for the movie is that the only reason this has its PG-13 rating is because of robot fighting time. There are no language concerns nor crude humor to be expected from this movie, meaning this movie is hewing more to its Iron Giant styled description and relying more on playful innocent fun for its humor and enjoyment.
So what do you think of this rating? Let us know in the comments section below!
Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action violence.
