Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for their upcoming Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee, and it’s everything we want it to be.
Admittedly, I’m a little out of the loop with the Transformers franchise, but there’s something about Bumblebee that’s wanting me to take notice. Maybe because it’s a flashback to the Autobot’s original form, or maybe it’s because of the grungy eighties heavy metal aesthetic of Hailee Steinfeld.
Either way, I’m pretty excited, and the trailer sets up the story quite well, without revealing too much.
Is Bumblebee set to be a lovable idiot? Will he be seen as an enemy? Is giving a robot a cuddle really as cute as it looks? I guess we’ll find out when Bumblebee hits theatres this Christmas.
