Bumblebee may just be the movie to see this Holiday as early reviews are in, and its Rotten Tomatoes score is at a present 98%.
Currently, 40 reviews are accounted for, with Bumblebee having 39 Fresh reviews to only 1 Rotten; 92% of the audience states they want to see it.
It's also being said that Bumblebee may be a way to reboot the Transformers movie universe, as going forward, any new movies won't be directed by Michael Bay.
Paramount also recently announced the titular character is being voiced by Dylan O'Brien.
Director Travis Knight is also rumored to be taking over Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, so if Bumblebee continues to impress, maybe Travis Knight will be a part of the MCU.

- Transformers - 57%
- Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - 19%
- Transformers: Dark of the Moon - 35%

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