BUMBLEBEE Clip & Featurette Introduce Triple Changing Decepticons December 15, 2018 New sneak peek at the forthcoming ‘Transformers’ spin-off focuses on two menacing Decepticons: Angela Bassett’s Shatter and Justin Theroux’s Dropkick. Every adventure has a beginning. 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. BUMBLEBEE is at cinemas from December 24th (with special previews December 15&16).
