Story Tidbits, Video from Transformers 4 Hong Kong Sets

Chinese website M1905 has posted a bunch of video from the various Hong Kong sets of Transformers: Age of Extinction. Sprinkled in the set are interviews with some of the cast. Most of the videos are in Mandarin but you can catch a lot of behind the scenes stuff as Michael Bay, Jack Reynor (Shane Dyson), Mark Wahlberg (Cade Yeager), Nicola Peltz (Tessa Yeager), Stanley Tucci and the crew work. TFW2005 was able to gleam a few story tidbits (below). The full set of videos is here. As for the sword image to the left, that was found by GabrielPrime and seems to an image of the Cybertronian sword that Mark Wahlberg's been carting around on many of the film's sets.

- Reynor: Shane is secret Irish race car driving boyfriend of Tessa's due to dad's no dating rule. Gains trust of Cade by saving Tess and Cade's life early in the movie.
- Tessa's mother is dead, result is Cade being over protective of her.
- Cade and Optimus become friends due to their (similar) code of ethics.
- Prime forced into situation of choose doing the right thing over his own life while Cade must choose between himself or his daughter (guessing translation problem because choice is always obvious for hero characters, Prime especially)
- Li Bingbing's character is owner of a factory in China (guessing something to do with the rumored Chinese Transformers)
- One Cybertronian speaks Mandarin only.
- The movie's third act takes place entirely in Hong Kong.

  1. As excited as I am about this movie (and I caaaan't wait) and even though I have no doubt we will all "mostly" be satisfied with this forth film... I have to say, I'm a lil worried about this whole "Chinese Transformer" thing I keep reading about. As I said before... please don't be a case in which humans have in some form or another created a Transformer!!! At least don't try to have a situation in which they do create one and it's suppose to "function" in the same way as an original. Now if they are portrayed in the movie as sub-par creations that in no way can function as a real one, then maaaaybe I can go with it (depending on the story line)... but if we are suppose to accept in anyway that humans have created a full functioning Transformer... then thats just dumb as @#$%!!!

    1. unless they did something where they tried to turn them into a battlesuit, like a headmaster or something, with one of the various dead decepticons or something

    2. It may be a dinobot, they are old as hell, so maybe they're less intelligent as optimus etc.

  2. Actor is partly from Ireland, so the character is not so far from him.

  6. The Mandarin speaking robot could be Grimlock, would kind of match with the shirt design if it's real.

    The story seems interesting, but I wonder how it will turn out in a shorter movie (than the others), especially when the Hong Kong part is a third of the movie.

    I both think and hope that this movie will have higher rating than the first three.

  10. It's interesting how some IGNORANTLY (and that is putting it quite lightly) are complaining about having a TF that speaks Mandarin, when the core concept of transforming robots comes from. . .drumroll. . . Wait for it. . .Rimshot w/crash cymbal. . .JAPAN, another ASIAN country, just like China. Newsflash to some of you: THERE ARE non - English - speaking countries on this planet, actually SEVERAL of them.

    Question: for those of you complaining, have you actually taken it upon yourself to ACTUALLY LEARN another language??? It's really not a hard thing to do. English is not the oldest or only language on this Earth - there's even places online (like the BBC, ironically enough) where you can learn FOR FREE. Sayonara and Bon Soir!

    2. Bahahahaha.

      Would you like a hug?

      Also, if you are speaking English, your spelling needs some work and grammar is pretty poor.

      Have a great day!

  11. Greetings everyone who have given comments and made statement on this blogsite. We appreciate your point of view. We had been contact some time ago by an individual who simply calls himself "WE" he claims and holds himself responsible our failures. We found how he has managed to do so via web site etc. He has many aliases. Which gets us to the reason why I'm here. He has opened our eyes on many different ways. He stated that "we are out of touch with our core base consumers and collectors. Now, we have. Going on and using these sites for research and response. We like to know what our fanbase has to say, think and believe and why. We thank you for your views and helping us to make better strides to getting the people what they want. We will not always get it right. There budget concerns and other things in manufacturing in which we have to consider. But we will make the best effort possible. We hope you enjoy this new series and action figures. We put a lot of thought into it for people like you. True fans. So this is my good bye. And again thank you from your friend (Dudemus)

  12. I stand by what I said - and your half-ass retort makes my case all the more valid. People say a lot of things - especially complaining about things they can actually spend time doing something about or at the least, countering. Such is the case when it comes to foreign languages. Why? Because it takes no effort to complain as opposed to buckling down and learning something.When you cats that are complaining actually MAN UP and realize that yes, YOU TOO, can learn and better yet SPEAK another language besides English, then folks like myself and Mawii Yo won't have to call you out on your apathy and stupidity. As far as freedom is concerned, it's obvious to some LIKE YOURSELF that freedom is no more than FreeDUMB. That's right - you are FREE TO BE DUMB since it's a free country, RIGHT? Classic half-ass tactic when responding to an intelligent post. Vous-etes un imbecil.

    1. Rumble: who are the a-holes with the ignorant back-n-forth rants. I mean who cares about what language these robots speak? Its a sci-fi movie for pete sake. You guys take things a little too serious. I know, why don't you dopes write a script and shop for a budget and make your own damn movie. And keep this type of nonsense off of this blog.
