Paramount Pictures “Bumblebee” will open on Dec. 8, 2018, 13 days before the “Transformers” spinoff opens. The movie “Aquaman” is to come out on Dec. 15 and on Dec. 21. Disney is opening “Mary Poppins Returns” two days earlier.

According to a critique of Variety Magazine, “Bumblebee” is set in 1987 in a beach town, where Steinfeld’s character discovers a battle-scarred and broken yellow Volkswagen and revives him. The film also stars John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon, and Stephen Schneider. “Bumblebee” is the sixth installment of the Transformers franchise, which has grossed $4.3 billion worldwide since the first film in 2007. It’s directed by Travis Knight and written by Christina Hodson.
