Movie News: New "Bumblebee" movie poster debuts

Paramount Pictures has released a new poster for the upcoming "Bumblebee" live action movie. The poster has a very retro quality to it, showing Bumblebee, Charlie and Agent Burns in the sky over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Synopsis
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.
