    I was looking throught the threads and I noticed that some people were questioning whether the Autobots go to China. Then I was looking at the stills from the new trailer and I noticed that the pictures of Prime fighting "uni-bot" had these distinctive items: 1.) On the overpass there are either Chinese or Japanees characters on the interstate signs before "uni-bot" destroys it. 2.) The cars on the freeway are driving on the left side and to my understanding China drives just like us and Japan drives on the left side - putting, at least Prime, in Japan. I my information is wrong, please tell me and talk about this information in the thread![​IMG]

    There's a neon sign in the ally where Barricade(?) gets chased. It looks like all the scenes at night so far happen in China. Those fancy motorcycles are actually perfect camo for such an environment. Maybe part of the plot revolves around Prime and co. hooking up with Autobot refugees?

    Scenes shot in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and Long Beach, California, stood in for Shanghai.

    Cool!

    But ... but how the hell does Prime get from America to China? Help from Jetfire perhaps? ;)

    I wish more people had read the TF Live Action Blog last year.
    Lots of this info has been known for a long time.

    We even saw that scene being shot, minus the CGI bridge and robots obviously.

    Holy Shitnizt Batman! 3 replies on my statement.

    I was being sarcastic though. But its funny to see Prime being loaded in a Military Plane to get transported.

    Oh well, some things will never get answered. Cant WAIT to see this movie :)

    The Bethlehem Steel/ China scene is supposed to happen at the very beginning of the movie so I'm gonna say that he is just there in the beginning but as others have said I think the military transports the Autobots. All indications point to Jetfire not showing until a little later in the film.

    I had to look it up myself. I've watched lots of live action Japanese movies, but I've never noticed which side of the road they were driving on.

    Anyway according to the internet:

    I don't know if this helps the debate any or if I just added fuel to the fire.

    Hmmm, I wonder if TF2 is even going to be released in China.... The reason I ask is because the Dark Knight did not get a Chinese Release (though it was heavily pirated). Now apparently it didn't get a release due to "cultural insensitivity." In the film a Chinese mob boss flees to Hong Kong and uses some corrupt police officers for protection, Batman goes to Hong Kong, and retrieves said mob boss.

    China was apparently angry with how the country was portrayed in TDK. How are they going to feel about lots and lots of little chinese people being squished by a giant rolling Big Wheel?

    it's Shanghai,China
    And this place is real
    It's actually called ChengDu Road bridge,and in movie the left board is HuaiHai middle road and right board is Yan Dang road.
    If one day you get a change to visit Shanghai,you can go this place.
    and very interesting,there is a street has lot of toy shop just near this place,there are lot of Transformers dealer :)

    now it is five replies. the military will probably bring the bts to china cause this is the start scene and it means jetfire isnt there yet.
