BUMBLEBEE Squares Off With Blitzwing In An Action-Packed New Clip; Plus Cool New IMAX Poster

Ahead of preview night screenings, Paramount Pictures has released an action-packed new clip, offering a quick tease at one of the film's best action-sequences as Bumblebee squares off against Blitzwing!

With a 93% Certified Fresh rating on review aggregator RottenTomatoes, Bumblebee is not only the best-reviewed film in the entire Transformers franchise, but it's also the best-reviewed film set to open this weekend, topping Disney's Mary Poppins Returns (78%), Warner Bros.' Aquaman (67%), STX's Second Act (44%), and Universal's Welcome to Marwen (15%), which should certainly bode well as it hopes to become one of the leggiest films through the winter season.

Early tracking is estimating a $26 million three-day weekend, which should result in a $40 million to $45 million five-day weekend once you factor in the Christmas holiday. While that's undoubtedly pacing behind its blockbuster predecessors, the five-day projections still promise a solid start for the Travis Knight-directed feature on its modest $135 million production budget.  

Without spoiling too much, 
Bumblebee  kicksoff with an extended prologue sequence that sees B-127 kick all sorts of ass on Cybertron before making his way to Earth where he promptly finds himself engaged in a deathmatch with the notorious Blitzwing (David Sobolov).




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.
