Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena & Travis Knight Attend ‘Bumblebee’ Fan Screening In Berlin
Bumblebee is the sixth installment in the Transformers movie franchise, based on the popular Hasbro children’s toys and 1980s cartoon series. It is also a prequel to 2007’s Transformers, the first film in the series. The previous installment in the franchise, The Last Knight, was released in 2017 and was panned by critics. Shia LaBeouf starred in the first three movies before being replaced by Mark Wahlberg for the fourth and fifth installments.
The new movie centers on an 18-year-old California girl named Charlie Watson, played by Oscar nominee Steinfeld, who in 1987 discovers that the old yellow Volkswagen she buys is actually Bumblebee, a robot who is part of the Autobots. Cena plays a character named Agent Burns in the film.

BERLIN! I’M HERE! LET’S HANG OUT! #BumblebeeMovie
