Transformers cinematic universe

When Transformers: The Last Knight debuted with a series-low opening day last year, it was the latest signal that the Michael Bay era might finally be coming to an end after a full decade of cinematic chaos. Now it seems as if Paramount is ready to make some changes: a new rumor indicates that the Transformers cinematic universe may be getting a full reboot. Read More »

Bumblebee Transformers photo

Update: A new high resolution version of the image has been released and we’ve added it below.

There’s a section in the song “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” that describes everyone dancing “in the new old-fashioned way,” and now the upcoming Bumblebee Transformers spin-off movie is putting its own spin on the concept of something being new and old-fashioned at the same time. A fresh photo from the film has emerged that showcases the title Autobot hero in his old-fashioned form as a yellow Volkswagen Beetle…but it’s also new, because we haven’t seen that character as anything other than a Camaro in a live-action Transformers movie yet. (Just go with me on this.)

Take a look at the new photo below, which also includes another look at the film’s human star, played by Hailee Steinfeld.

optimus prime bumblebee

Transformers: The Last Knight, the latest in Michael Bay‘s monstrous Transformers franchise, may be one of the worst-reviewed films of 2017, but you can’t keep those Autobots down. Bumblebee, the first in a probably endless series of Transformers spin-offs, is currently in production. And it looks like a familiar character is following Bumblebee into the spin-off: Optimus Prime will be bringing his big, bulky body along for the ride. See the details involving the Optimus Prime Bumblebee spin-off news below.

bumblebee movie volkswagen beetle

Bumblebee is officially going back to being a bug. While the lovable yellow Autobot took on the form of a Chevy Camaro in Michael Bay‘s Transformers films, Bumblebee’s solo spin will see him rocking the rounded hood once again.

We already knew that the ’80s-set Bumblebee movie prequel would have the Autobot in bug form, but we finally got our first look at the Transformer in vehicle mode thanks to a picture from the set.

Hailee Steinfeld in Bumblebee

Production is now underway on the next installment of the Transformers, but it’s going to be much different from the movies we’ve been seeing from director Michael Bay for the past decade. After launching in 2007, the Transformers film franchise has grown to be a convoluted mess of too many stories interspersed with huge, explosive action sequences. Thankfully, it sounds like the spin-off prequel Bumblebee will be heading in a different direction.

Not only will Bumblebee take place in 1987, but the film is said to be in the same vein as The Iron Giant, with significantly fewer Transformers. Taking the role of the teenager who encounters our heroic Autobot is Hailee Steinfeld, and the Pitch Perfect 2 actress has just posted a first look at her character that is pure 1980s rock. Get your first look at Hailee Steinfeld in Bumblebee below Read More »
