The global trailer features several shots not seen in the domestic version, including more footage of other G1 era classic Transformers like Optimus Prime, Bumblebee battling Blitzwing, and shots of Cybertron.

Kavanaugh has also agreed to testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing planned for 10 a.m. (1400 GMT) on Thursday. She says Kavanaugh was drunk at the time and forced her onto a bed and groped her before she was able to get away.

Unlike the franchise's previous entries, which were helmed by Michael Bay, Bumblebee is directed by Travis Knight, best known for his work on Kubo and the Two Strings. Peter Cullen is back as Optimus Prime, while the likes of Shockwave, Starscream, Shatter, and Dropkick all put in appearances.

Bumblebee will release on December 21 this year.

The film sees Bumblebee taking refuge in a small Californian beach town junkyard, where a teenage girl, Charlie (Steinfeld), takes him in. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. Was that Soundwave? I'm not even that big a fan of Transformers, but I can only imagine how these brief images are a form of catharsis to fans of classic Transformers who are undoubtedly exhausted of all the bits and pieces from Michael Bay's aesthetic.
