The First Official Teaser Trailer for ‘Bumblebee’ Is Here

Paramount Pictures has just released the first teaser trailer for Bumblebee – a prequel film to Michael Bay’s Transformers series. The movie is directed by Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight, and stars Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena. The script is written by Christina Hodson.



On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beachtown. 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.

BUMBLEBEE is produced by TRANSFORMERS franchise veterans Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay, along with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. Chris Brigham (ARGO, INCEPTION) will also executive produce. The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson (UNFORGETTABLE).

Directed by Travis Knight (KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS, CORALINE), the film stars Hailee Steinfeld (EDGE OF SEVENTEEN), Pamela Adlon (BETTER THINGS, LOUIE), John Cena (DADDY’S HOME 2, TRAINWRECK), Stephen Schneider (Comedy Central’s BROAD CITY), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING), Jason Drucker (DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL), Kenneth Choi (AMERICAN CRIME STORY), Ricardo Hoyos (DEGRASSI: NEXT CLASS), Abby Quinn (LANDLINE, THE SISTERHOOD OF THE NIGHT), Rachel Crow (DEIDRA & LANEY ROB A TRAIN), and Grace Dzienny (ZOO).




This will be the first Transformers movie not directed by Michael Bay. With a decreased interest towards the last two Transformers movies, Hasbro and Paramount decided to put on hold Transformers 6, which was supposed to close one cycle of films about the giant alien robots fighting on Earth. Transformers 6 was first slated for a release in 2019, but on a recent convention Hasbro revealed that there are still no firm plans on that.



Bumblebee hits theaters on December 21, 2018. Conveniently the first Christmas in three years without a Star Wars movie.
