Bumblebee (2018) - New Official Trailer - Paramount Pictures.
On the planet Cybertron, the Autobot resistance, led by Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen), is on the verge of losing the civil war against the Decepticons, and prepares to evacuate the planet. A Decepticon force, led by Starscream, Soundwave, and Shockwave (Jon Bailey), intercepts them during the evacuation, and Optimus sends the Autobot scout B-127 to Earth in an escape pod, in order to set up a base of operations where the Autobots can regroup. B-127 reaches Earth alone, crash-landing in California and disrupting a training exercise by Sector 7, a secret government agency that monitors extraterrestrial activity on Earth. Colonel Jack Burns (John Cena) presumes B-127 to be a hostile invader and attacks. B-127 scans a Willys MB jeep and flees to a mine, where Decepticon Seeker Blitzwing (David Sobolov) ambushes him. When B-127 refuses to reveal Optimus's whereabouts, Blitzwing tears out his voice box and damages his memory core; despite this, B-127 stabs and destroys Blitzwing with one of his own missiles. B-127 flees from the soldiers, scans a nearby 1967 Volkswagen Beetle and collapses from his injuries.
In 1987, teenager Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld) remains traumatized by the death of her father, and resentful of her mother Sally's new boyfriend Ron (Stephen Schneider). Charlie finds 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 (Angela Bassett) and Dropkick (Justin Theroux) as they interrogate and execute the Autobot Cliffjumper (Andrew Morgado) on one of Saturn's moons. The Decepticons head to Earth, and acquire Earth vehicle forms. They meet Sector 7, pretending to be peacekeepers, and persuade them to help capture B-127, despite Burns' objections.
