Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Comic-Con

We’ve had three big screen versions of Spider-Man over the past couple decades, but we’ve never had a wallcrawler like the one we’ll see in this fall’s animated comic book movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

This time, it’s young Miles Morales (Shameik Moore of Dope) taking the mantle of Spider-Man, but he’s not the only one with spider-like super powers. There’s still an older Peter Parker bumming around (voiced by Jake Johnson), and there’s also Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld). Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is taking us deeper into the comic book world of Spider-Man than any movie has before, and the movie’s Hall H panel provided even more insight into what we can expect from this vibrant, stylish approach to Spidey and his universe.

But that’s not all! We now know that Nicolas Cage has joined the Into the Spider-Verse cast as well, playing yet another Spider-Man: Spider-Man Noir.

Bumblebee Featurette

Last week brought the first teaser trailer for the Transformers spin-off Bumblebee. The film focuses on the vocally-challenged, signature yellow Autobot who has been a cornerstone of the entire franchise right alongside Optimus Prime. Now, Bumblebee finds himself on his own in what is something of an origin story for the character as he goes on an adventure that happens decades before the first installment of the Transformers movies.

A new Bumblebee featurette has arrived with a focus on director Travis Knight, the man who has done wonders with stop-motion animation at LAIKA. After directing Kubo and the Two Strings and having his hand in LAIKA’s other projects such as Coraline and ParaNorman, Knight hopes to bring some of that mesmerizing storytelling to the Transformers universe.

Bumblebee Trailer

Before Bumblebee cruised around as a souped-up Chevrolet Camaro, the loyal Autobot hero took the form of a classic Volkswagen Beetle. And before he befriended Sam Witwicky, he was tight with a girl named Charlie Watson.

Paramount Pictures has unveiled a Bumblebee trailer that gives us a look at the studio’s first live-action Transformers spin-off movie, which is a prequel set in a Californian beach town in the 1980s. It’s also the first movie in this franchise that hasn’t been directed by Michael Bay. Check it out below. 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.

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 »
