I don’t normally listen to a lot of contemporary popular music, but I like what Hailee Steinfeld’s latest audible with “Back To Life” is doing for Paramount’s latest, Bumblebee, from director Travis Knight. Knight’s Kubo And The Two Strings was a fun little adventure and so I’m keen on believing he might help bring the Transformers franchise from entropy with the new sci-fi thriller, and a good soundtrack also helps. This was a catchy listen. Peep it, and then go see Bumblebee this Christmas!
On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.
