Monkeys Fighting Robots

Since making his big screen debut in Transformers back in 2007, Bumblebee has been lots of places.  From a used car lot in the first movie to Earth’s many other regions in the films that followed it.  Now he’s going to a place that is a hotspot for many movie characters.  The 1980s.

In the synopsis for Paramount’s Bumblebee, the Autobot finds himself on the run in 1987.  Badly wounded, broken, and scarred, he finds a junkyard in California to use as a place of refuge.  While in his disheveled state, he crosses paths with an 18-year-old girl named Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) who fixes him up and from there the rest of the story is unknown.
