Teaser for "Bumblebee" (Transformers 6)

Post by applejack » 2018-06-08 02:41am

So this Christmas:



The fact that this movie's director, Travis Knight, also directed Kubo and the Two Strings makes me actually want to see this. I haven't even bothered to watch the two previous Transformer films.

Pretty much every TF fan I know is reacting with 'pleasant surprise.'

And a fair amount of cognitive dissonance. A TF movie... that looks *good*?

New trailer is out.



I gotta say, Shockwave is my favorite transformer aesthetically, and I'm glad to see what looks like a pretty faithful recreation of his G1 design. Original Soundwave and the Cybertron war scenes were pretty awesome too.

"You could never get the G1 designs to work in a live action movie" -People of a decade ago, proven wrong.


Again, reception is overwhelmingly positive! This looks like the TF movie people wanted.

Oh this looks like it might not be actively terrible!

They should really make the plot about how the US government wants to arrest Bumblebee for cheating his emissions tests though. I want that or I want Decepticons hoarding purple bricks.

Also lol, anyone else thinking about how Wolverine came to dominate the X-man franchise when they saw this?
