China, yes the country, plays a huge role in Transformers 4

June 26th, 2013 by bash Comments

With Transformers 4 filming in China, Chinese actors being hired via a reality show, and numerous Chinese landmarks being destroyed in the movie, it’s no suprise that the Asian country is playing such a prominant role in Michael Bay’s next film.

As such, and not surprisingly, Marc Ganis, president of production company Jiaflix Enterprises, said the film “has a great deal to do with China”.

“Effectively, China is a character in it,” he said. “So much of the movie takes place in China and the character [Li Bingbing] plays is a Chinese national. So it’s a very natural position for her to have.”

Transformers 4 stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and T.J. Miller. It will be released on June 27, 2014.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
