I think they've embraced not making any sense and being awful, so they're celebrating it in trailer form now.

But I agree; I'm not seeing even a trace of an interesting story idea. Which is great, since this is the first of the "writers room" movies, where they're building this fantastic shared universe.

And, yeah, I guess you're right about Not Bumblebee. I was holding out hope, but it's probably Hubcap. Or Ultra Magnus, since they just randomly apply names in the movie.

Latest news on the TFCU is that apparently Bay (or more likely Hasbro) shot-down a treatment for an R-rated Bumblebee movie!

And no, that's not a joke. Someone actually pitched a Tarantino-esque R-rated movie based on the Autobot scout. Apparently Bay would like to do an R-rated TF film (because you know, it's based on a kids' toyline, so why not?!), but I guess he thought it didn't fit Bumblebee or somesuch.

They are actually doing a BB spinoff, and supposedly TF5 will set it up somehow. So I guess that means evil Optimus doesn't actually kill him. Or maybe he just Matrixes him back to life once he shakes off probably-Unicron's influence.

The R-Rated Transformers movie will be the final dudebro-ening of the franchise. I really hope Hasbro isn't stupid enough to let them do that. Then again, they've let them do so much already.
