DI­REC­TOR: Travis Knight CAST: Hailee Ste­in­feld, Justin Th­er­oux, An­gela Bas­sett

Bum­ble­bee was al­ways one of our favourite Trans­form­ers. He’s far more ap­proach­able than Op­ti­mus Prime and a lot more fun than Iron­hide (a Nis­san Vanette was never a cool ride). This ori­gin story takes us back to the Au­to­bot’s ar­rival in the late ‘80s, where he forms a bond with Char­lie (Hailee Ste­in­feld) be­fore the in­evitable ar­rival of the au­thor­i­ties, as well as our favourite De­cep­ti­cons, jet Starscream and cas­sette tape/pan­ther Rav­age. But Hailee chan­nels too much of her BFF Taylor Swift circa 2006 for this ac­tioner to truly hit the mark.
