When Charlie and Memo go to the big cliff-side party, at one point Memo says the phrase "What's your damage?" to one of the bully girls. This phrase was popularized by the movie Heathers, which came out in 1989, 2 years after Bumblebee is set.
The Paramount Pictures, Allspark Pictures, dB Pictures and Tencent Pictures logos are accompanied by a series of robotic sounds.
The Australian release was censored; after the film initially received an M rating from the classification board the distributor (Paramount) decided to re-edit the film in order to obtain a more lucrative PG rating. Following some changes made to the film a modified version of the film was submitted to the board, however this modified version was still seen as being too strong originally and received the original M rating given to the film, however following an appeal from Paramount the film was lowered to PG on December 11th with the consumer advice now stating that the film contains "Mild science fiction violence and mild themes. Some scenes may scare young children". Both versions were approved for theatrical release.
