So it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these but then two trailers dropped on the same day that felt worthy of a “Let’s Talk About…” feature. The other being The Lego Movie 2 but I think I’m going to wait until we get the full trailer before sinking my teeth in on that one. So we’re left with Bumblebee.
Bumblebee is the first and last spinoff from the Michael Bay Transformers franchise. Maybe. Early word is that the Transformers franchise is going to be rebooted soon due mainly to The Last Knight failing pretty miserably. The studio was already pot committed when it came to the Bumblebee movie so we’re getting it wether we want to or not. And the sad thing is, this doesn’t look awful.
Set in the 80’s, it has more of the classic G1 Transformer look than any of the Bay-formers movies have had in the past. Coupled with a cast that doesn’t have a single Shia LaBeouf or Mark Wahlberg anywhere to be seen and this could be the Transformers movie we’ve been waiting for. Too bad it took us this long to get here. Starring Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Pitch Perfect 2 & 3) as Charlie and John Cena (The Marine, Ferdinand, every modern Wrestlemania) as Agent Burns. The story follows Bumblebee, on the run from Burns, hiding out in a small California town. Here he meets Charlie and adventures happen. Plus you get the addition of Martin Short(‘s voice) and Pamela Adlon to the cast, along with what I can only assume are tons of easter eggs and cameos. It is a little strange that this whole adventure happens but the government supposedly didn’t know about Transformers existence in the first movie from 2007. But then you remember that The Last Knight threw all of that away and had Bumblebee taking out Nazis in WWII so who knows.
Anyway, enough of that, Let’s Talk About The First Bumblebee Teaser Trailer… Continue reading
