After the last few Transformers movies, it seems safe to say not many people are excited for another one. That's why Bumblebee is trying to do something different. It's got Travis Knight — the director of Kubo and the Two Strings — at the helm, and it takes place in the '80s, long before the original films started, and the era when Transformers became popular in the first place.
