    I find it weird how there's even an embargo on people giving opinions. (I can understand them embargoing full reviews to keep spoilers away). It doesn't really make me worried about the quality of the movie, it just seems like one of those weird things that someone probably decided arbitrarily.

    Edit: I think the fact that they're doing so many early screenings at all is a good sign.

    It might seem that way, but there is a calculated reason behind embargo dates and they are set very carefully by studios to limit flow of information until a specific time and ensure maximum sales.

    Could we maybe change the title to Review Embargo Revealed? Title is misleading

    It isn't about spoilers, embargo exist because it could generate hype if used properly. Even if the movie is good, there are reasons why embargo shouldn't set very far from the release date.

    It appears they want the fan oriented events - the thing on the 5th as well as the early access on the 8th, the very same day as the embargo lifting - to happen first to ensure proper word of mouth.

    It's heavily risky because if Bumblebee doesn't get good word of mouth, then it's dead in the water because of the lack of any real advertising on par with any previous Transformers film and next to things like Spiderverse and Aquaman.

    Not to mention in the same week Marvel planning to release Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, & Avengers game trailer. I hope Bumblebee won't get buried by that.

    Honestly I don't think that it will. Trailers will be talked about but usually only last for a day or so. Movies tend to have about a week for trending.

    It's a matter of interest. So many people buzzing about upcoming Avengers 4 trailer (that just Avengers 4 alone, mind you) compared to Bumblebee which has people react negatively towards it simply because it is another Transformers movie.

    But we'll see, hopefully it will survive because Bumblebee has LA premiere on 9th.

    Here's the review if anyone was wondering:



    Only bad thing he had to say was the plot was slightly predictable, but he said this film has the best cinematography, design, and characters out of all the Transformers movie. Sounds fairly promising.
