'Transformers' still remains a cult film and has an enviable fan following, it remains to be seen how 'Bumblebee' will match up to the fandom the original 'bot' film created. Well, from the looks of the official trailer, this yellow Bumblebee is out to win hearts. Optimus Prime, whom we saw as a holographic recording in the clip released at the SDCC, has a secret mission prepared for this adorable bug. Its mission involves fending off an attack on Earth from a trio of Decepticons including a Blitzwing (not Starscream) and keeping the US military Agent Burns (John Cena) from off its tail.
The film is set in 1987 where the main character Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), who is just turning 18 and is trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, in its generation one original form, albeit battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this autobot is no ordinary, yellow VW bug. The adventures that follow make for the rest of the movie. The cast of this film includes Steinfeld, Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon and Stephen Schneider.
The film also has a lot going for it in terms of the people associated with its production and filming. Michael Bay gave us the 'Transformers' series but this time he is on board as producer along with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Tom DeSanto and Don Murphy, while the film is being Executive Produced by Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner, Mark Vahradia and Chris Brigham.
