And the international trailer:
Notably, Bumblebee, the sixth film in the hybrid Transformers franchise, is the first not directed by Michael Bay. The film marks the live-action debut of Laika CEO and president Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) directing from a script by Christina Hodson (Shut In, Unforgettable).
The studio synopsis:
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), 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.
VFX are handled by Industrial Light & Magic (vfx supervisor: Jason Smith) and Cantina Creative (vfx supervisor: Tony Lupoi), with previs by The Third Floor.
Paramount will release Bumblebee on December 21, 2018.
Last year, we broke down the vfx in a Bumblebee sequence from Transformers: The Last Knight. Here’s that article.
