    Bumblebee's going to move. If I were a betting person, I'd almost stake money on it. I'll be very surprised if it doesn't happen. I've been saying it for a while, and this is just more of a reason to move.

    All of the marketing surrounding the trailer said "this Christmas" instead of giving an exact date. The fact that they left it vague makes me think they've been planning a change of release for a while, or at least want to leave their options open.

    Saying "this Christmas" means they could move it up a few weeks, although probably no earlier than November 29th (or else it will be a Thanksgiving movie!)

    I think Bumblebee has more than a chance against Aquaman, but I don't think it can go up against Mary Poppins. People will flock to that out of nostalgia alone, besides that it probably has a wider appeal than a Transformers movie. Mary Poppins is beloved by pretty much every gender and age group.

    Mary Poppins is more of a competition than Aquaman. Bee should just move for the better.

    On a personal level, I'd be thrilled if it moved. In fact, the release date is the only thing I'm kind of bummed about. That week will be pretty packed with Christmas preparation, not to mention possibly icy roads that could make getting to the theater a pain. It shouldn't be much of a problem for me to go because I live pretty close to a theater and I let my family know about these events weeks in advance so nothing will get planned for that day.

    That much being said, I find it hard to coordinate friends outside of college semesters. I had trouble even getting friends together to go see Ant-man last week. I don't think many of them will want to drive half-an-hour through snow and ice five days before Christmas to see Bumblebee. It would be much easier to get them to go see the movie if it comes out before the semester ends, or maybe a week after.

    My money is on the movie that seems most well made and looks like it's actually going to be good and not a cashgrab or a life support drip for a greedy harkonnen-esque producer

    It needs to move forward. Hellboy and Glass are not aiming at the same demographic as Bumblebee. Let BB steal Aquaman and Poppins' thunder...not the other way around.
