Courtesy of German site bluray-disc.de, we have some new information about the upcoming Bumblebee movie, the first spin-off in the Transformers live-action movieverse - and possibly the only one if the alleged reboot is to happen as we have learned so far - including details of the home release of the movie, and a new synopsis for the plot, featuring Hailee Steinfeld (as Charlie Watson), John Cena (as Sector 7 agent Burns), and the Plymouth GTX as Bumblebee's antagonist.

Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub discussion thread, but aware that the synopsis is fairly hefty in terms of spoiling the plot for fans who want to go in knowing as little as possible!

Movie description:

1987, California: In her sleepy home town of Brighton Falls, 17-year-old Charlie Watson (H. Steinfeld) dreams of escaping the wastelands of her community. One day she discovers an old VW Beetle at the nearby junkyard and begins to get it started again in loving detail. But, as it turns out, behind the battered old-timer is an alien Autobot called Bumblebee, who many decades earlier had the assignment to protect humanity from invasion by the evil Decepticons. However, when a Sector 7 agent named Burns (J. Cena) starts asking questions in the little village that leaves little doubt as to his destination, Charlie realizes that she has to help Bumblebee escape as quickly as possible. But there is already a Plymouth GTX in their way, who has pursued the yellow Transformer for quite some time and leaves no stone unturned to turn him into a pile of scrap

The more I think about it, this plot actually kinda sounds a bit like what I imagined the plot of the 2007 movie (or at least, that movie's "Sam Witwicky gets his first car" plot) might have been like before that movie came out.

At least this is a proper synopsis, unlike what we got before. Considering that this will be aimed at kids, I wonder if Cena will play his Sector 7 agent straight serious or like John Turturro played Simmons.

That's what it sounds like to me too. Guess I can scratch that off my "to see in theaters list". I don't often go to theaters anyway, but I will go see Jurassic World 2. Bumblebee was the only other movie I had in mind to go see.

Well, the words had a definite condescending tone.

As for the film outperforming TLK at the box office? I doubt it, unless it gets a great marketing campaign and the movie is actually good which will generate good reviews and word of mouth. IMO it won't have a better opening weekend thanks to Aquaman opening on the same day but it might surpass TLK in total box office.

It's been a little while since we've heard any major news about the upcoming Bumblebee stand alone film, but we do have a couple stories to bring you today. First, we have one of the first outside opinions on the main plot of Bumblebee, from screenwriter Steven DeKnight. Coming as a snippet of an interview from entertainment website Uproxx for his upcoming film Pacific Rim: Uprising, he shares that the story they used for the Transformers spin off was his favorite to come out of the Transformers screenwriting room that was arranged last year by Michael Bay and Paramount. Check out the Transformers-related section of the interview below.

Our second Bumblebee story is a bit of a rumor in conjunction with a recent announcement from Paramount themselves. It's been said recently (notably by reviewer and journalist Manabyte (Or Jeremy Conrad) that Paramount is planning to do an early screening of the Bumblebee movie sometime very soon, and that info collides with the announcement that this year's Wondercon Anaheim will be the backdrop to the first screening of a secret Paramount film. There are several Paramount movies coming out this year, and nothing in particular points to the Bumblebee movie being the secret screening this Friday, but there is a chance. Either way, we'll find out this Friday!

Uproxx: You were part of the Transformers writers’ room. I’m so curious: What’s a Transformers writing room like?

Steven DeKnight: It was a blast.

Uproxx: I imagine.

Steven DeKnight: It was a room full of incredibly talented, interesting, really wonderful people. I’ve got to say, my time spent in there was just, more than anything, was just so much fun. Everyone was so much fun and interesting. And we actually wrote, I think it was, I want to say 12 different movies. Every one of us took a different idea and developed it into like a full 30-page outline, so there were like 12 movies. And also, in complete honesty, my absolute favorite movie of the bunch was the Bumblebee movie that they’re making right now.

Uproxx: I’ve heard good things about it.

Steven DeKnight: The idea was fantastic.

I'm going to be openmindedly optimistic about this one. Hoping they have made enough changes to make things better than the Bay flicks. I know if I go into this with a negative frame of mind that's gonna ruin it for me. Like the last 5 films ranging from kinda cool, to meh to oh primus why. If it draws new fans into the community and brings old ones back then that's a good thing.

Again, no one's forcing you to go and see if if you aren't into it. (or pay for it because you know it will wind up on netflix or on TV eventually where it's basically free)

This ^ ultimately if this grows the fanbase then regardless of the quality of the movie then it can only be a good thing.

They are probably going to just leave that big thread dangling. I do not see the Bumblebee Movie going really anywhere after TLK. However The Bumblebee movie could be a success and Paramount pulls a fast one and makes the rest of the movies and finishes that thread. I doubt it happening though.

Metro recently had the chance to sit down with wrestler John Cena and talk to him about his upcoming comedy "Blockers", and while they were at it, they asked him a few questions about his role in the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee film. While Cena was careful not to drop any spoilers or any new information regarding the movie itself, he did comment on how he feels the Bumblebee film will help reinvigorate the movieverse.

Cena has been heavily rumored to be acting as Agent Burns of Sector 7, though that is still yet to be confirmed. He also makes note, inadvertently, that he and Bumblebee will come to face to face in the film, as he talks about interacting with a tennis ball on a 13 foot tall stick, which is what actors use to focus on when a character will be added in using CGI later.

Check out some quotes from the interview below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

I think Travis Knight did a fantastic job of reintroducing the look, the feel, the storytelling of this franchise. I think people who enjoy what ‘Transformers’ was will enjoy the movie.

.....

Here we are talking about ‘Blockers’ a comedy with a lot of improvisation. It is very difficult to improvise with a 13 foot stick with a tennis ball attached to it. So it is a different movie-making process, but one I was extremely interested in.”

Still 98% humans though.

The thing is, all actors has been praising M.Bay for all the TF Mov releases, specially the last two. So, not holding my breath Plus i do realize with TF films, its not up to the actors... its literally the Director that carries the Whole weight of the film's representation. Purely, make or break.

There will always be a majority of humans in a live action Transformers film, it's on Earth and cgi isn't able to keep them on screen all the time, also the general public believe it or not doesn't give that much of a darn about the Transformers themselves because their giant robots whose only real purpose is to fight each other and sell toys.

Regardless Bay is only a producer in this and the director of this film has made good work so I think he knows a bit about what he's doing.

Actors performance in TF films track record this far (if not all) are one dimensionally substance-less over the top. Seeing how Bay is still involve albeit no longer in the directors chair kinda is not a competent point to think otherwise.
Yup, general public just wants a good intelligent film regardless on its purpose to sell toys etc. I dare say 5 subtance-less version of the latter is quite plentiful for the general public as well.. lol.

Travis Knight has made quite decent Animation films as a Producer & lead animator.
Bumblebee being his 2nd major film directorial debut, Kubo being his 1st. So kind of early to tell. Remember, Bay had strings of good film before he took on the TF franchise & his folio was wayy more lucrative(as in competent) than Travis's.
We'll see how he fares come December. Super low expectations though. Unlike anticipating for ROTF after the 1st TF film before we found out that was the beginning of a downward spiral. :P

Via a new piece on Entertainment Weekly, we have another brief comment from John Cena, starring as agent Burns in the next Transformers live-action movie, aka the first and probably last spin-off of the Paramount universe so far: Bumblebee!

The interview is about Cena's plans and wishes for future roles, but he directed the discussion onto Bumblebee instead, repeating his previous positive points about director Travis Knight, and the nature of the story. Check them out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

After a string of comedic roles, the actor is back in the action-movie fold with Bumblebee, the Transformers spin-off set 20 years before the events of the first film.

“It’s going to be a wonderful piece of this franchise that I think people are going to enjoy,” promises Cena. “I was very intrigued being able to meet the team around the movie. [Director] Travis [Knight] is such a passionate man. The role they were talking to me about doing was very intriguing to me because it’s a road I’ve never been down before, but a road I felt like I could accomplish. And then put that together with the context of the movie, the way that the consumer will now view Bumblebee, all of that stuff was very interesting to me. And then they were stupid enough to say yes.”

Bumblebee, which also stars Hailee Steinfeld, races into theaters on Dec. 21.

Fan-favorite Autobot Bumblebee is recruited for a top secret mission, and 1960s London won’t know what hit it when this robot in disguise goes undercover.

It’s high-tech, high-octane, high-clearance spy hijinks in From Cybertron with Love.

Some call him Goldfender, but the name’s Bee… Bumblebee. On loan to MI6 and teamed with a human partner, Bee’s trapped in the middle of a Cold War plot to disrupt British Secret Intelligence. But when their base is destroyed from within, it’s up to Bee to discover if there’s a traitor in their midst…and, in the spy world, allegiances can change just as easily as a Cybertronian.

From long-time Transformers writer and British super spy aficionado John Barber (Optimus Prime, Action Man), From Cybertron With Love is the official prequel to the new Bumblebee film, in theaters December 2018.

Embedded in an article on Press of Atlantic City - about an upcoming musical comedy tour with Steve Martin - we have possible confirmation of comedy actor Martin Short lending his vocal talents to the live action Transformers spin off Bumblebee: The Movie production! We have no indication of what type of role, if just narration, or CGI character, or any other detail about the role other than the article showing this little tidbit:

WHAT’S NEW: Short is doing voiceovers for the upcoming 2018 film “Bumblebee: The Movie.”

Martin Short is cool, but I thought he retired from acting in the 90's? Hopefully his return won't signal some soulless studio to remake Inner Space or Three Amigos...

I could see him as Narrator, maybe a Sparkplug-like character or a Con like Swindle.

I sincerely doubt most people think of anyone other than the Hollywood actor/comedian when they hear about a "Martin Short" being in film/television.

Depends if you're into GT racing ;)
Acting and films aren't a big deal to everyone. It was only a half remembered interview after all, which is why I had the brain fart over the names in the first place.

Martin Short was great in Innerspace and Small Criminals? The one with Nick Nolte.

He was also great as the elf in the tv movie Merlin featuring Sam Neill in the lead role.

After seeing how Bay managed to make noteable actors such as John Malkovich and Anthony Hopkins cringey, I'm glad Bumblebee has a different director.
