"Bumblebee" Movie Trailer Gives First Look At Hailee Steinfeld & John Cena

Bumblebee, which is the first of what I would assume will be a trilogy, is slated to hit theaters this holiday seasons.

Paramount Pictures has released the Bumblebee trailer for the Transformers spinoff movie starring John Cena. Following the critical and financial disaster of Transformers: The Last Knight, the future of the Transformers universe is uncertain. But the franchise looks like it's about to return to the lighter, Amblin-inspired coming-of-age themes of the first film with a new spin-off.

Unlike in the prior films, which have seen him take the shape of a modern Chevrolet Camaro, Bumblebee will here assume his original, old-school Volkswagen Beetle form, which (like the amusing Rick Astley gag) is in keeping with the vintage vibe. The film appears to be centred on the relationship between Charlie and Bumblebee.

Hitman 2 release accidentally confirmed by Warner Bros
Some "Target Incoming" text in the usual Hitman font appears then is quickly replaced with "Access Denied // June 7, 2018". The Hitman franchise has followed a twisted road.

This is a big moment for a lot of Transformers fans who aren't fans of Michael Bay's version of the transforming robots.

The pic is set in 1987, where we find Bumblebee in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town.

Bumblebee is directed by Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings), and stars Hailee Steinfeld (Edge of Seventeen), Pamela Adlon (Better Things), John Cena (Daddy's Home 2), Stephen Schneider (Broad City), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. Ultimately, Charlie tells the Autobot, "You got people out there who need you, this is why you're here Bee". From the second he turns those puppy-dog eyes on teenage girl Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld), it's love at first sight.
