WATCH: John Cena comments on early reaction to “Bumblebee” movie

WWE star John Cena recently walked the red carpet for a special fan screening in London of his new “Bumblebee” film. During the event, Cena spoke to “The Up Coming” to talk about the film’s reception:

“Being around an element that created this new universe of such a storied franchise, I think everyone involved in this installment of Transformers knew that it was going to be a fresh, new take on this. We knew what we were going to give fans, but fans weren’t really sure.

“Now that audiences are starting to see this movie [the reaction is] ‘wow, this is actually really awesome!’ So to see all of that hard work, and everyone’s investment come to life in something that audiences really enjoy; it’s very fun.”

“Bumblebee” hits theatres on December 21st, however, you can check out a special screening tomorrow in select theatres across the nation. Cena plays a character named “Burns” who is an agent for Sector 7. As for his WWE return, Cena is scheduled to make his return later this month.

He’ll make several appearances during WWE’s Holiday Tour, as he hasn’t appeared since his match at the WWE Super Show-Down in Australia this past October.
