Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for “Bumblebee” — the latest film in the “Transformers” franchise — starring singer-actress Hailee Steinfeld in the lead role.

The prequel, set in the 1980s, takes fans back in time to meet Charlie Watson, a young woman whose life is transformed after the owner of a junkyard gifts her a particular yellow Volkswagen Beetle for her 18th birthday — which happens to be a bot named Bumblebee.

After a brief scene-setting introduction — which shows the moment Charlie and Bumblebee “meet” and the bond of friendship they develop thereafter — the trailer quickly speeds up into flashes of action, with glimpses of battles, bad guys and “Transformers” veteran Optimus Prime.
