The trailer starts with eternal words of Bobby Bolivia, played by Bernie Mac in the first Transformers movie. His words echo, “The driver doesn’t pick the car, the car picks the driver. It’s a mystical bond between man and machine.”
Further, it was great to see Hailee Steinfeld, playing the role of Charlie, our teenage heroine. Well, when she comes across a yellow Volkswagen Beetle, she decides to drive it home but she realizes that it’s really an alien Transformer.
Well, It’s great to see Bumblebee and Charlie unite as they take on the evil men who’re after him.
While a dull performance of Transformers film, The Last Knight, Paramount seems to plot a new direction to take the franchise. It seems that they will focus on spinoffs instead of the main series.
