The power of friendship is the focus of Bumblebee’s new poster

Paramount's latest entry in the Transformer's franchise leaves behind the explosions & robot fights to focus on the bond between human and robot.

Since the first film in 2007, Paramount Pictures & Hasbro’s Transformers films have been known to be loud bombastic explosion filled affairs with tons of robot on robot violence. December’s Bumblebee looks to be turning all of that on its head and presenting something far different.

The first trailer that dropped earlier in the summer showcased a story that while familiar is quite different as the yellow Autobot and his human companion Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) and their friendship is seemingly the heart and focus of the film. A focus on fighting off evil Decepticons less of the point of this film, the story being something similar to The Iron Giant or E.T. as comparisons.

That focus on friendship is the main feature of the film’s brand new poster (shared on Twitter), the human and robot friends taking the spotlight in a beautiful starry night with no explosions or evil robots or humans in sight.

Not only does this film change up the formula of the previous franchise entries’ plot and spectacle considerably, it also finally gives the franchise a strong female protagonist that is at the center of the story instead of just being there to supplement the men of the stories as was often the case in the previous franchise entries.

Bumblebee is directed by Travis Knight and written by Christina Hodson. The film stars Steinfeld, John Cena, Pamela Adlon, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Jason Drucker, Ricardo Hoyos and Gracie Dzienny with a release date of December 21.
