The meaning of «bumblebee (film)»

Bumblebee (stylized as BumbleBee, also known as Transformers: Bumblebee)[6][7][8] is a 2018 American science fiction action film centered on the Transformers character of the same name. It is the sixth installment of the live-action Transformers film series. Developed as a spin-off and prequel, it was later declared a reboot of the franchise.[9][10] Directed by Travis Knight and written by Christina Hodson, the film stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, and Pamela Adlon and stars Dylan O'Brien (as the title character), Angela Bassett, Justin Theroux, and Peter Cullen in voice roles. It was Knight's first live-action film,[11] as well as the first live-action Transformers film not to be directed by Michael Bay, who instead acts as a producer. Principal photography on the film began on July 31, 2017, in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California.

Bumblebee premiered in Berlin on December 3, 2018, and was theatrically released in the United States on December 21, 2018, and grossed $468 million worldwide, becoming the lowest-grossing film in the franchise but still a box office success. The film received the highest praise of all the Transformers films from critics calling it the best film in the series, praising the action sequences, and Steinfeld's performance, as well as the 1980s setting and sense of nostalgia.[12]

A sequel, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, is scheduled to be released on June 9, 2023.

On the planet Cybertron, the Autobot resistance, led by Optimus Prime, is on the verge of losing the war against the Decepticons and prepares to evacuate the planet. Decepticon forces led by Starscream, Soundwave, and Shockwave intercept the Autobots during the evacuation, and Optimus sends Autobot scout .mw-parser-output .tooltip-dotted{border-bottom:1px dotted;cursor:help}B-127 to Earth in an escape pod in order to set up a base of operations, before staying behind to fend off the Decepticons. B-127 reaches Earth, crash-landing in California and disrupting a training exercise by Sector 7, a secret government agency monitoring extraterrestrial activity on Earth. Colonel Jack Burns presumes B-127 to be hostile and orders his men to attack. B-127 scans a Willys MB jeep and flees to a mine, where he is ambushed by the Decepticon Blitzwing. When B-127 refuses to reveal Optimus's whereabouts, Blitzwing tears out his voice box and damages his memory core, but B-127 destroys Blitzwing with one of his own missiles. B-127 scans a nearby 1967 yellow Volkswagen Beetle before collapsing from his injuries.

In 1987, teenager Charlene "Charlie" Watson, who was depressed by the death of her father, and resentful of her mother Sally's new boyfriend Ronald, find a yellow Volkswagen Beetle in a scrapyard belonging to Hank, who gives it to her as an 18th-birthday present. When trying to start it, Charlie unknowingly activates a homing signal that is detected by Decepticons Shatter and Dropkick as they interrogate and slice down Cliffjumper on one of Saturn's moons. The two Decepticons head to Earth, acquire Earth vehicle forms, and encounter Sector 7; pretending to be peacekeepers, they persuade the agency to help capture B-127, despite Burns' objections.
