Following the super cool tease of the original Optimus Prime, Soundwave and Ravage, now Paramount Pictures has released the new full trailer for Bumblebee.
â€śThe two main villains are Decepticon muscle cars,â€ť director Travis Knight revealed in a previous interview. â€śThis is a more personal, intimate, and character-driven story, so it felt right to keep the villain plot relatively simple and contained. If you keep things lean, you can add a lot of other stuff on top of it that makes it more enjoyable.â€ť
Knight added about Dropkick and Shatter: â€śThey had to be a little bit more complex, so â€¦ theyâ€™re triple-changers. They had to turn into two different things in addition to being a robot. So they are muscle carsâ€¦ but also Decepticons are aircraft. They turn into things that fly. So Shatter can turn into a harrier jet and Dropkick can turn into a chopper. And you can see little pieces of that in the design.â€ť
Hailee Steinfeld plays Charlie Watson.
â€śWe meet Charlie Watson as a sort of typical misunderstood teenager and she has experienced a major loss in her life,â€ť Hailee Steinfeld said at Comic-Con. â€śSheâ€™s constantly trying to find that freedom that she craves and fill that gap of loss with love or friendship or something or someone that understands her or sees her.â€ť
â€śThe idea of me being able to make a Transformers movie and not see Cybertron? I mean, come on,â€ť Knight added at the SDCC this Summer. â€śIf theyâ€™re gonna give me the opportunity and money to do that, Iâ€™m gonna do it. So yes, we see Cybertron and let me say, it is awesome.â€ť
Jorge Lendeborg Jr. also plays the character Memo, which he offers: â€śWhen you gotta fight aliens, you definitely turn from a boy into a man.â€ť
John Cena also plays Agent Burns of Sector 7.
â€śIâ€™ll just say that Agent Burns knows that heâ€™s right and thatâ€™s the reason why he does sometimes the naughty things that he does,â€ť Cena said at Comic-Con. â€śAgent Burns is a complicated man. Damn, he looks good in a suit though. I guess if he figures that if humans would help these things that he believes are not-so-good, he would also think that those said humans are not so nice."
Bumblebee has a December 21, 2018 release date also starring John Cena.
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken.
