Just over a month after the recent full trailers, it appears that one more look at Travis Knight’s Bumblebee has been prepared by Paramount for release soon. The new trailer, clocking in at a shorter 100 seconds, has been rated today by Alberta Film Ratings. The runtime and the fact that this is coming from a domestic market classification board make us believe that this is indeed a brand new piece, as opposed to a cutdown of the recent trailer (which would usually run 1:30 or 1 minute exactly and be done for international markets).
As for when to expect this to arrive, Paramount has Julus Avery’s brilliant action horror Overlord hitting cinemas and IMAX next weekend (further corroborating that this is indeed a new look) – if it’s due to be attached to that film, expect it online sometime in the next week. We’d suspect this look will also play in front of the other major November releases such as Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. As always, we will be sure to update as soon as we find out more.
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, 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.
Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Pamela Adlon, John Cena, Stephen Schneider, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Ian Drucker, Kenneth Choi, Ricardo Hoyos, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow and Grace Dzienny, the film is released December 21 in the United States, followed by Boxing Day in the UK.
