Bumblebee Gets An Early Screening

In an effort to try and drive up word of mouth, Paramount Pictures has announced that fans will have the opportunity to attend paid early-access screenings for their “Transformers” spin-off “Bumblebee” a full two weeks ahead of its theatrical release nationwide on December 21st.

The early screenings will take place on Saturday, December 8th fans at select theaters in the U.S. and Canada. 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 at 7:00 p.m. at all participating locations. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, November 21st at BumblebeeMovie.com as well as at participating theater box offices and respective exhibitor ticketing sites.

The Travis Knight-helmed film begins in 1987 as 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.
