As you’ve most probably surmised, today is a BIG day for movie releases because we’ve already announced that “Aquaman” has opened along with the recently premiered “Mortal Engines” and “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”. Now I bring you the news that “Bumblebee” is opening up as well. If you’ve missed the trailer for this one somehow just click HERE to see that post over on my PiercingMetal website and BTW, clicking the names of those other films will open up tabs with the related content for your added enjoyment.
The Synopsis: Twenty years before the events of the first film, in 1987, Bumblebee takes refuge in a small California beach town junkyard, where a teenage girl named Charlie Watson takes him in. However, the two of them soon find themselves hunted by a Government Agency known as Sector Seven, lead by Agent Burns. As they run from society, the two learn that Bee isn’t the only Transformer on Earth, and that the others might not be as friendly. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Looks like I am NOT going to be able to catch this one for the immediate time being. I’ve already noted that I have the Trans-Siberian Orchestra show tomorrow in NJ, and I am doing the matinee which is always a good time but a long day for me since its a hike via Mass Transit. I’ll need to see “Aquaman” first but then perhaps I will squeeze this one in on the same day if I hit the matinee next Wednesday near my home. If I do you can count on some non-spoiler overview right here on the website. So what about you readers? Will you be catching “Bumblebee” in the early days of the theatrical run or will you wait for a few reviews to flow in first? Chime in down below, and remember no spoilers please. We don’t like that stuff. See you next time.
