Michael Bay has brought Hasbro’s Transformers to the cinema in a big way over the last decade. The tales of Cybertron’s Optimus Prime, Megatron and, of course, fan-favourite BumbleBee have made a huge dent at the box office. Now it’s time for the yellow bug to get his own film. BumbleBee goes back to the 80s, complete with G1 (Generation 1) Transformers such as Shockwave, Soundwave and Ravage and a kicking soundtrack. It may well be the film fans since the 80s have always wanted to see.
This evening at the IMAX Cineworld in Leicester Square, London a special fan screening took place, with stars Hailee Steinfeld and WWE superstar John Cena walked the red carpet for the first Transformers spin-off film along with Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight.
The film also stars Justin Theroux, The Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien, Angela Bassett, Peter Cullen, Megyn Price and Pamela Adlon.
With previews from the 15th of December, BumbleBee enters UK cinemas from Christmas Eve, December the 24th. Scott Davis and Colin Hart were on the red carpet and conducted these interviews.
BumbleBee Cast Interviews
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.
