If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of the new “Bumblebee” movie, Paramount Pictures has a holiday gift for you. The studio announced today that on December 8th fans at select theatres in the U.S. and Canada will have the opportunity to attend paid early-access screenings for the latest film in the Transformers series.
Fans who participate in this one-day only event will get to see the film on the big screen nearly two weeks before it opens nationwide on December 21st. Tickets will be on sale at participating locations, and each admission includes a ticket to the movie, bonus content, and a “Transformers: Tiny Turbo Changers Movie Toy” from Hasbro, while supplies last.
Showtime will be 7:00PM at all participating locations, so hopefully there is a participating theater near your location. Tickets for the fan event will go on sale November 21st at BumblebeeMovie.com, as well as at participating theatre box offices and respective exhibitor ticketing sites.
If you need a refresher on the new installment, “Bumblebee” takes place in the year 1987, where, on the run, 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.
In addition to Steinfeld, the film stars John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon, and Stephen Schneider. Paramount Pictures will release “Bumblebee” nationwide on December 21st.
It might be a good idea to see this movie early, since December is packed with popular releases. On the same weekend “Bumblebee” releases nationwide, the films “Aquaman,” “Second Act,” and “Welcome to Marwen” are hitting theaters. A week before is the release of “Marry Poppins Returns,” and earlier in the month “Mortal Engines,” “The Mule,” “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse,” “Possession of Hannah Grace,” and “Once Upon a Deadpool” is scheduled to hit theaters.
