It appears our previous report that the Transformers: Age of Extinction principal photography had wrapped was a bit premature. Actress Nicola Peltz Instagram message must have been in reference to her part of the filming being complete. A tweet from Michael Bay's official twitter account reveals they have indeed completed their Hong Kong filming, but are now headed to China for another week of filming.

As we previously reported Transformers: Age of Extinction has moved on to China for continued filming. According to Chinese media outlets one of the filming sites will be the Wulong Karst National Geology Park in Chongqing. The next bit of information could be considered spoilerish, so if you aren't interested in such stop reading now.

According to director Michael Bay this will be the location of a heroic turning point scene, which takes place after the fall of Hong Kong. A group of Transformers will meet up with another group Transformers where they battle their way out of a crater (Wulong Karst is known for it's sink holes) that was apparently created by a crashed starship. After the Wulong Karst battle they return to Hong Kong.

Here's a few images from the filming in Wulong Karst from Bay's website:

Because that's where humans live. :lol:

according to Transformers 1, they landed on Mars.

in DOTM, they crashed on the moon...

its not like they will crash on venus and humans will send someone to check if they did...

every crash transformers made on earth ties them more and more to humans...

maybe they'll find out the Allspark created us as well...

They landed on Mars looking for Megatron, who was looking for the Allspark. Sentinel crashed into the moon because he got shot down while he was looking for Megatron, as well.

ECNS.cn is reporting the Transformers: Age of Extinction crew has returned to the Wulong Karst National Park in Chongqing China to film additional footage. This is apparently due to recent changes in the script. The reshoots required two helicopters to get what they refer as "grand aerial shots" of the area's natural bridges.

Due to the recent script alterations, the crew was forced to once again visit the Three Natural Bridges scenery of Fairy Maiden Town in Wulong County on Monday, and used two helicopters to get several grand aerial shots of the tiankengs (giant dolines) and naturally formed bridges on Tuesday and Wednesday. The scenes they shot will be used in "Transformers 4" to add visual impact.

Sounds like they're using an area of China that looks like how the United States southwest was depicted in the pre-movie cartoon. My, this might be hard for the usual detractors to even complain about!

Not that they won't rise to the challenge, it just might actually be a challenge this time.

Transformers: Age of Extinction Reshooting in Sichuan Complete

Postby Va'al » Sat Jan 25, 2014 9:47 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
As a follow up to the news about the Transformers: Age of Extinction crew reshooting some scenes in China, ECNS.cn brings us an update to what the two-minute scene might entail, and how much it cost. Read on below, or head here for the original article!

The fourth instalment of the "Transformers" franchise has just finished part of its shoot in China, and it features some beautiful natural scenery.

This cave, located in Wulong county of Chongqing Municipality, is a naturally formed karst landform. It was chosen as a location for the shoot of Transformers 4 for its breathtaking grandeur.

The final cut of this scene is about 2 and a half minutes. The shooting is mainly for a bird's eye view of the two bridge-like landforms, and a fight scene between transformers takes place under them. Then a transformer walks out from below the two "bridges". Huang Daosheng, Manager of Wulong Karst Landform Co., said.

Because the bridges are part of a world natural heritage, the film crew did a thorough test to make sure the shoot would not damage the bridge. The shoot has also lured a number of curious tourists to the site.

Honestly, wouldn't it be cool/funny/awesome if they did a Kremzeek short? I had always wondered what would happen if Bay did that!
