Adjust Comment Print

Following the critical and financial disaster of Transformers: The Last Knight, the future of the Transformers universe is uncertain. Also making a brief appearance is John Cena playing obligatory military man Agent Burns.

According to director Knight, Bumblebee will carry a tone distinct from the other Transformers series installments - and the teaser trailer proves that, showing off the sweeter, gentler, coming-of-age-story side of the franchise. One of the most popular autobots (probably second most after Optimus Prime), Bumblebee is the embodiment of the adage that states, "Size doesn't matter".

Paramount Pictures has released the Bumblebee trailer for the Transformers spinoff movie starring John Cena.

'A driver don't pick the vehicle, the auto pick the driver, it's a mystical bond between man and machine, ' intones a voiceover, quoting the words of Uncle Bobby the used vehicle dealer from the first Transformers film. The film appears to be centred on the relationship between Charlie and Bumblebee. I play a character named Charlie Watson, who is a mechanic. It's set in the year 1987 and gives some backstory on what Bumblebee was up to prior to meeting Sam Witwicky in the first of the Transformers live-action movies.

Whether audiences still have an appetite for such computer-generated-imaging mayhem won't be known until later this year, as Bumblebee arrives in theaters on December 21.

It continues: "When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug".
