Bumblebee movie trailer: Even Transformers get Rickrolled

And for added nostalgic appeal, Bumblebee is in his original Generation One guise of a VW Beetle, which, for anyone slightly nonplussed by the fussy designs of Bay's Transformers movies, is a welcome change of pace.

The first trailer for Transformers spin-off movie Bumblebee was unveiled on Tuesday by Paramount Pictures and the refreshed take on the enormous Autobots has an emotional touch to it.

The yellow-black autobot Bumblebee is getting his own movie and the trailer is here.

The official synopsis reads: "On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town".

Last summer's Transformers: The Last Knight took in franchise-low receipts at the box office, tallying only $130 million domestically and $605 million globally - a far cry from 2014's Age of Extinction ($245 million here at home, $1.1 billion across the planet). This time around, Paramount has swapped the explosion-loving Michael Bay, who directed the first five films (from 2007's Transformers to 2017's Transformers: The Last Knight), for LAIKA CEO and Kubo and the Two Strings filmmaker Travis Knight, who makes his live-action directorial debut with Bumblebee.

Meanwhile Cena plays Burns, an agent of Sector 7 and Bumblebee will face a Deception than transforms into a red 1971 Plymouth GTX.

Also starring in the film are Jorge Lendeborg Jr, John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon and Stephen Schneider. It is set for release on December 21st 2018.
