It is, and he was great in it. I read a lot of great reviews, and I’m glad I watched it. It’s a slow burn, but totally worth it. Brutal, and makes you realize just how big a dude he is.

Ready Player One is delightful, and there's one scene that should bust up any old school movie fan.

Nervous about this one. Still gonna see it. :)

So it looks like the plug has been pulled on the latest Transformers movie, but Bumblebee is still getting his own spin-off.  The first trailer doesn't do much for me, but I'm so glad that they went back to the 1980's version with the VW Beetle.  This will act as prequel as being themed in the 1980's.  I really wish they had started the franchise with the 80's versions to give us the back story, kind of like the MCU did with their characters.  The write up seems intriguing at least.

The “Transformers” franchise may appear to be dead in the water after Paramount pulled the sixth film in the main series from its schedule, but that’s not so because “Bumblebee” is still coming right at you later this year. And in the middle of the night Monday night we got our very first look at the spinoff. You can check out the trailer in the embedded video above, or on YouTube right here.

“Bumblebee” will take the series back in time to the 1980s, thus serving as a prequel to the main series as well as a spinoff. As often happens in these things, the trailer shows us Bumblebee striking up a relationship with a young woman named Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) by accident — while Charlie is poking around under her beat up new yellow Beatle, she spots Bumblebee’s real face.

During that bit, the trailer calls back to the first time we saw Bumblebee come into the possession of the human protagonist of one of the movies, with the sequence narrated by Bernie Mac’s used car salesman in “Transformers,” when he tells Sam Witwicky (Shia LeBeouf’) that cars pick their drivers — “a mystical bond between man and machine.”

The “Bumblebee” trailer is notably light on the sort of large scale action and wacky humor that the “Transformers” movies are known for. The tone of the trailer is in keeping with how producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura has described the film — as being an “emotionally complex story” which he compared to “The Iron Giant.”

Though it does give us a shot of Bee catching a flaming helicopter, as well as a villainous Decepticon disguised as a jet. That Decepticon, by the way, is Barricade, who features prominently in the main series. We also get a glimpse of John Cena and John Ortiz with a whole bunch of soldiers — because no “Transformers” movie could be complete without a military aspect.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the continuity of the live-action “Transformers” series, Bumblebee has been hanging out on Earth a while before the events of the film series and even a few decades before this movie is set. As revealed in last year’s “The Last Knight,” Bumblebee has been around at least since World War II, in which he was part of an Autobot team who fought the Nazis alongside human forces.

How he ends up in Hailee Steinfeld’s possession is anyone’s guess. But I’ll guess we’ll find out when “Bumblebee” hits theaters on December 21.

The film is directed by Travis Knight of “Kubo and the Two Strings” fame, and is written by Christina Hodson.

Just got back from seeing Bohemian Rhapsody and it was effing awesome 

And I gotta admit, I cried several times throughout the movie. Not ashamed to admit that.

Go see it now if you haven't yet done so.

Just saw 'Glass' the new multiple personality sequel staring James McAvoy (AKA-WFW :lol:) Not a bad semi-thriller.

Watched Sicario 2 last night, did not enjoy it at all. Del Toro’s character in the first is an invincible super human bad ***, then they turn him into a softy in the sequel. Keeping him as a secondary character and focusing on Blunt is what made the first movie good.

'Cold Pursuit' with Liam Neeson, in theatres now. A well worth seeing crime drama with a plot and plenty of action. Must say 2 hours was a bit long but it keeps your attention.

Neeson does a great job in kicking some serious bad hombres' arses. You won't be sorry.

@mdrake34 @AF89 I just imagined an ABF version of ‘True Detective’ where @Big_Dog and @WhenFalconsWin are partners.

The same gritty opening credits but the song is like Disco Duck or some shytt.

It's also only 1 episode long because in the 1995 arc they discover chain email and never make it out of the office....the Amish sex cult just sorta gets away with it.

*inside the episode* Pizzalatto stares smarmingly at the camera and explains why he named the episode title after his favorite Tolstoy novel
