The first trailer of Bumblebee caught our attention with a fascinating story line, but the second trailer goes beyond the gratifying story of a girl and her robot.
The second trailer includes parts of the civil war happening on Cyberton. The yellow, charming Autobot is given a mission from Generation One Optimus Prime: “There is only one way to end this war – you must protect Earth and its people.”
The trailer released last week had teases featuring a G1 Soundwave as he releases Ravage the hunting cat in the midt of a battle with Optimus. It also includes Agent Burns from the government agency called Sector 7, played by John Cena. He is made aware by the Decepticon Blitzwing of a battle that could turn our planet to a war zone if not intercepted.
“There’s a war breeding on our planet, and if this criminal isn’t found, that war may find its way here.”
Here’s the film 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.
The powerful yellow Autobot’s standalone film hits theaters on December 21st, 2018.
