    No, lol. There can still be an Autobot-Human romance without weird Kiss Players stuff. The fact that the two may not know how to show their affection for each other is a major dynamic that intrigues me.

    Oh, this is very complicated theme! TFs have different attitude to the gender differences. They haven't traditional family institute and females, if they exist significantly, have the same social role and thus the same psychology. I even can't say, that Bumblebee is a male in human sense. Autobots' psychology is really different, they are far more intuition- and feeling-driven, than human males. So, they meld both types of psychology, male and female. For Bumblebee Charlie is human firstly, her gender is not so important. Remember, what Steinfeld said "He is the same gentle iron giant as with Sam". But for Charlie, of course, he is male and the place for the beloved man in her heart was obviously free at the moment, when they met. So, from her point of view there can be some sexual subtext. But still it is very unusual and very interesting type of relations! It is close to the love in the Bible sense - compassion, mutual understanding, absolute trust and devotion, deprived of any biological ties and thus any commonness.

    That was maternal. Arcee was essentially his space robot aunt that looked after him. And I think you meant Springer, not Grimlock.

    You seen Logan or Deadpool? Yeah, the main series X-films are meh, but the "spin-offs" are better in literally every aspect.

    Anyways, back to the main topic. I hope this movie is good, but there's just...something...off about what we have seen so far IMO. Seems like it may be a rehash of the first movie (2007), given the information I know (feel free to tell me I'm wrong). I'm open to changing my mind, but I will be cautious. If Batman V. Superman taught me anything, it's to be cautiously optimistic and sometimes downright pessimistic.

    Side note: Personally I'm in the "develop the robots into real characters" camp, and sorry Bumblebee, but you have been hogging the spotlight.

    I may not agree with Burnout that the movies suck, but "soulmate" is an extremely odd word to use for describing a relationship between a girl and her car.

    I read it as 'Daniel' then went off with Hot Rod & Grimlock. (Although Wheelie was his main friend in S3).

    Perhaps he did mean Springer in the Arcee love camp. What a triangle we have here (or some other shape).

    Anyhow, I absolutely love this promo pic of Bumblebee. I can't help but see the origianal G1 character here though (which I like). I do hope they can convey that old personality (self-conscious, friendly etc) in this film before he becomes the cocky, hot head warrior that he is in 2007.

    Charlie will be in high school. John Cena’s character is a Sector 7 agent in his 40s...

    Love isn’t being used in terms of romance, but as a strong bond of friendship.

    I like Laika's movies (Coraline, ParaNorman, The Boxtrolls, and Kubo and the Two Strings). And knowing that Travis Knight, who directed 3 of the aforesaid movies, The Transformers Movieverse may finally have [at least] a 'Fresh' rating over at Rotten Tomatoes.

    Romance or friendship, I don't see any difference between them. They both are great emotion of sentient beings. What really matter imo is the script.
