Rather than just make more and more Transformers films, Paramount has decided it’s time for a spin-off, with the big, yellow Bumblebee getting him own film. Set before the recent set of robot movies, the new film will see what the autobot was up to in the 1980s.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
The film is due in cinemas just before Christmas. Take a look at the first trailer for the movie below.
