    It kind of flew under the radar with all the news about Starscream and whatnot, but thanks to this article we now have our first song associated with Bumblebee: The Movie!

    And Charlie plays it on a Walkman!!!



    First Bumblebee Footage Shows How The Transformer Got His Name

    (I don't know if other people care as much about the song choices as I do, but I've always enjoyed hearing songs in movies, especially in these retro-style movies. I have both Guardians of the Galaxy soundtracks recorded to cassette tapes, and I'm planning to do the same here assuming there are enough songs in the movie to make it worthwhile.)

    As for the song itself, I think it's a good choice. I actually expected more of the typical overplayed hits like "We Built This City on Rock 'n Roll", but I'm glad to see they're going with lesser known songs (someone correct me if this was a big hit, I've never heard it before.) This seems like a catchy and memorable song, and I'll undoubtedly play it a couple hundred times before the movie comes out.

    (Of course there's always a chance that it won't be in the final movie like some of the GOTG trailer songs, but in this case it sounds like it's part of the scene.)

    Never heard it before either but its a catchy song.


    Also, from that article
    This is exactly the type of thing that I was hoping to see Knight bring to the table. I've always been more into the visuals than the story in these movies so I'm very interested to see how everything is handled by the new people.

    Christian Busath on Instagram: “Had an incredible day on the set of Bumblebee, with the incredibly talented and sweet Hailee Steinfeld and Cameron Sawyer. @haileesteinfeld…”

    Okay, this isn't new news or anything big, but something I found kind of funny.

    I recognize the guy in the red shirt from prank videos on YouTube, he's friends with Jack Vale, one of my favorite pranksters (or at least several years ago, he doesn't do much these days). I remember seeing this photo back in October and thinking "hey, I recognize that guy." I have no idea why he was on set, but it's a huge coincidence. It would be great if he had an appearance in the movie.



    (Also, If you have an hour to spare, watch the video with him called "Scaring a Psychic". The idea's hilarious, but the shortened version doesn't do it justice. The extended version has a great buildup.)

    It was stated by 5-6 or even more person who saw the footage. So I guess yeah.

    I'm curious if they will explain how and why Bumblebee and Starscream went back to Mars and stayed there for 20 years; per what was established in the first movie.

    Bee and Starscream were never implied to be on Mars in any way during or before the first movie. Bee was specifically said to be on Earth prior to the events if the movie, and Starscream just kinda shows up. Theres nothing to say they werent both here all along.

    The prequel comic to the 2007 movie had Starscream, Blackout and Barricade on Mars in 2003 and on Earth the same year.

    Ah okay.

    A revived Megatron in RotF seemed to get to another planet in record timing as well as many other instances in DotM, so I don't think travelling back and forth into space is a problem for them.

    I regularly use Twitter to search for info on this movie. Whenever I search for #bumblebee I keep getting nasty close-up photos of real bees! I don't know why so many people feel the need to post those, but it's starting to gross me out, lol!

    If we didn't hear about it, it was probably private and we might not hear about it.

    A nice way they could wrap up the films since this will be the last in this continuity is, have the movie be a flashback. Have the opening take place on Cybertron, with Unicron defeated, with Bumblebee looking back into the past. That way, even if we don't see the final showdown with Quintessa and Unicron, we can still get some kind of resolution.
