Bumblebee gets Rick Rolled in first trailer for Transformers prequel

Bumblebee

Bumblebee

From the second he turns those puppy-dog eyes on teenage girl Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld), it's love at first sight. At the very least, the fact that it retains some of the classic appearances from that era of the animation means it should be slightly better received than last year's Transformers: The Last Knight. The main character, the yellow-and-black Autobot scout Bumblebee, has a lot in common with plenty of other gentle giants or aliens in movie history.

After practically destroying the entire world in an orgy of explosions, auto chases and scrap metal, the Transformers franchise is going back to its roots with a character that was there from the very beginning of Michael Bay's saga.

Transformers: The Last Knight may not have performed so well, but there's still Bumblebee on the horizon - the first of Paramount's live-action transforming robot flicks that doesn't have Michael Bay behind the camera. The studio is looking to reignite the franchise with Bumblebee.

Stephen Curry has signature playoff performance
The Golden State Warriors are up 2-0 against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the fourth straight installment of the NBA Finals rivalry. They need to tighten up their defensive rotations and communicate a lot better, or the Warriors' buzzsaw will roll as usual.

Bumblebee is set to hit theatres December 21st putting it in direct competition with Aquaman and Alita: Battle Angel, so we will need to see how well the spin-off fairs.

The official synopsis reads: "On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town". When she revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary VW bug. We also see some military types, one of them played by John Cena, as well as what looks to be the Decepticon Starscream, who also looks like the Starscream fans know from the original cartoons.
