has been the topic of interest for us at today's CinemaCon showing in Las Vegas, and capping off the promotional effort for the day, a quick teaser was shown to attendees. No public video has emerged yet, but comicbook.com has posted a synopsis from one of their staffers attending the show, which features - as you might expect - Bumblebee, as well as Hailee Stienfeld in her lead role as Charlie. Plus a little bit of a surprise a little farther in. Keep reading to find out what was shown tonight!
An alarm goes off at 8:00 AM. Charlie shuts it off, unhappily waking up. Her room is covered in posters. She rocks out with headphones on while brushing her teeth. In the garage, her car is playing the same song. When she enters, it stops.
A piece of the car hits the floor. She look beneath it. Getting on a board with wheels, she slides under the car. Ultimately, she finds Bee's face, which lights up in the eyes and stands up above her. She's shocked. This thing fits in the garage! They have a standoff. Bee stumbles around. She reaches for the door handle but sees he is just stumbling around and scared as he huddles himself into the corner.
She approaches and says, "Hi." Bee chirps back. He's still scared and avoiding her in the corner. "Do you speak?: she asks. Bee nods to indicate he does not. He stands up, holding his neck, after seeing the wrench in her hand. He analyzes her hands and comes closer, allowing them to touch his face. He can understand her. "What are you?" she asks. "Where did you come from?" He shies away from answering. He points to her shirt. He is asking who she is. "I'm Charlie," she tells him. "Charlie Watson, I'm 18 today. Actually, it's my birthday today. What's your name?" He shies away, with his ears going down. She rules, "You sound like a little bumblebee." That's what she's going to call him from now on. "Matches your outfit, too," she says.
Later, clips of Bee running from a helicopter, trucks exploding, Bee playing on the beach, driving Charlie around, and other Transformers cut into the frame. A red and white winged Transformer is fighting him. He uses his arm cannon. He fights fighter jets. Charlie does her best to help him. He lands in a desert.
The red and white winged Transformers sounds like a decent description of Starscream in G1-inspired colors. While it's entirely possible that it could be a different character altogether, as the movie is already somewhat banking on using the classic G1 vehicle form for Bumblebee, it's not a far leap to think they might give a 1985 Starscream something closer to the iconic appearance.
