WATCH: Paramount releases Transformers: Bumblebee teaser

Could it be? Have we finally got a decent Transformers movie for the first time in over a decade?

The idea of a standalone Bumblebee movie has seemed a bit odd. Especially since they announced John Cena in the cast. But nonetheless, Paramount have gone ahead, and here’s the trailer:

Actually, all kidding aside this looks pretty good. Bumblebee is a classic VW Beetle, the 80s setting is spot-on, in fact the only problem so far is that Starscream’s early appearance is as an F-4 Phantom instead of an F-15 Eagle. Let us know what you guys think in the comments.

Bumblebee is scheduled for release on 21 December 2018.

Can we all just take a second to reflect on how awesome Starscream looks here?

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
