Bumblebee Chase Clip, Red Carpet Video, Interviews and a Touch of Fan Edit

This past weekend Bumblebee had a preview in some US theaters. From various things I have read the over all consensus is the best movie of the franchise with a lot of humor and fun. For the rest of us, we get to wait until December 21 (or later depending on country), here is some new stuff to promote the movie. The first video is a new clip of a police chase sequence that makes genuine creative use of a Transformers transformation capabilities. The next is a fan edit for G1 fans that inserts Stan Bush's The Touch as the trailer song. The third is from Fox 5 of Washington, DC as their entertainment reporter conducts brief interviews with director Travis Knight, Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, and Angela Bassett. The last video is little over an hour long from the red carpet premiere of Bumblebee at the TLC Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. Thanks to Feris O. for the link.

Bunch of New Bumblebee TV Spots, Clip and Triple-Changer Featurette

Here is a bunch of new stuff for Bumblebee from around the world. The first video is a clip of the Decepticons arriving to a meeting with Sector 7 on a mission of "peace". The second and third video are featurettes focusing on 'Bee voice and triple-changers. The last three videos are TV spots that let you hear Soundwave's voice, see 'Bee try to take out Blitzwing (nope the jet isn't Starscream even though could be his G1 twin). Thanks to Feris O. for the heads-up. After the opening "new" thing (getting hard to tell sometimes), the rest of the video is padded with trailers and other TV spots.

New Bumblebee TV Spot Invokes Ferris Bueller

More TV Spots and New Clip from Bumblebee

Below is a few new TV spots from Bumblebee. Also in the first video, a little after the 1st minute, is a new clip that shows Sector 7 with John Cena confronting 'Bee and the gang. One thing I keep noticing is something that was missing from most of the Bay films which is actual transformations. On screen and not hidden with edits or camera tricks. A lot of them too. They also seem far less complex (thus less of a burden on the budget) with a quick sequence that seems inspired from the cartoons so that the details of a transformation sequence are fudged to a great degree. Thanks to Feris O. for the link.
