Wulong Karst Formally Sues Over Transformers 4

According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures, M1905 (their Chinese partner) and the producers of Transformers: Age of Extinction have a new (if minor) headache to deal with. After threatening to do it earlier this month, I guess discussions did not work out. The Wulong Karst Tourism Company, the location for the Dinobots introduction, have sued them in Chongqing No. 3 Intermediate People's Court for 4M yaun for losses while the park was closed for filming, 12M yaun for profit losses due to the breach and promises how would be depicted in the movie and refund of their 4.8M yaun to be in the movie. The total of 12.8M yaun works out to around $3.4 million depending time of day. The lawsuit comes down to the movie not being nearly overt enough in advertising the park, even though apparently it was good enough as it has enjoyed an increase in visitors. That total is chump change to Paramount as Transformers 4 is poised to cross $1 billion (or 6.2B yuan) and likely they will attempt to quietly settle the lawsuit.

  5. US people supposed to be patriots ! Why are you hating Michael Bay ? TF5 will be much greater deal than TF4 and TF6 the best of all so this hate is unfair . The matter is Transformers NOT Bay but Bay going Transformers every time on top . End Of Story . Use to it , love it or hate it ! But i suggest wisely stop hating if you re transformers fans if not go out from the Transformers sites . We have better things to do than listening or reading the pointless hates about Transformers or Bay ! Watch Avengers with no spiderman and Tony Stark that made Ultron in Avengers 2 ? This is ridiculous comparing to Transformers BY MICHAEL BAY !

  6. Chinese coorporations are about to blow a good thing. TF4 is the biggest movie to ever hit China. Billions of dollars are at stake, and they're risking it al with these bullshit lawsuits. I hope Bay and every other American filmmaker tell China to get fucked and never go back.
