    Why is everyone making a fuss about this?! I guess they forgot that the production crew got actual, oh, I don't know, PERMISSION and BLESSING by, oh, I don't know, probably the GUYS WHO OWN THE PLACE, and/or maybe, I don't know, probably is CHURCHILL'S DESCENDANT.

    Sorry to go off on one, but really? Really?! Of all things these people choose to sh*t on to get publicity, they choose the production of the next friggin' Transformers movie?!

    Ugh. Christ...

    EDIT: Oh, and I guess we Brits forgot that Churchill's a Tory. But ooh no! You're not supposed to say that! You're not supposed to attack a great Prime Minister's politics! *rolls eyes* For f**k's sake.

    Are we ignoring the fact that Nazis are going to be in TF5?! That's insane!

    Yeah, I can understand how people might not like that. It is a fictional movie, but still. There are people alive who survived the blitz and such.

    As for the movie itself, I have no idea where this is going. Are we getting some sort of time travel or alternate history? Could that explain why dead characters like Barricade are back? Either way, it looks like this movie will be as (over)stuffed with content as ever, as we're getting this AND the King Arthur stuff as well.

    lol I know right? I wonder how this fits into the plot. Seems like so much is going on already.

    And people are too sensitive. Obviously Churchill's relative who owns the house is okay with this so what's the big deal?

    o_O  WTF were they thinking. Seriously there had to be countless other places they could have used for this purpose that would have caused less controversy.

    I am an American and this makes me want to face palm.

    And Bay redecorated US Naval vessels to double as Japanese ones for Pearl Harbor.

    So what?

    You're talking as if he's not getting a huge sum of money to disrespect the home of his ancestor.

    I'm just going to repeat what I said in the other forum because I think at this rate it has to be one of these scenarios.

    A. It's Time Travel and the Autobots will be bouncing all around the Timeline.
    B. The Creator who may or may not be Merlin will get a flashback montage, showing how he and other Transformers have been on Earth for ages by showing them through throughout different time periods to give audiences an idea of exactly how long they've been on Earth and exactly how've much they've seen.

    First I heard of it.

    But then again, I don't spend 24/7 on this site reading every post in every forum either.

    What if the Nazis are looking for King Arthur's Sword or Merlin's Staff for their magical properties/technology.

    Wait a minute! What does that reminds me of? Oh yeah! and Oh yeah again!

    Nazis and King Arthur in a Transformers movie? This is gonna be one weird movie, and I'm not yet sure if it'll be good weird or bad weird. I'm hoping good weird.

    I guess it'll be a flashback of the Nazis ...trying to steal Excalibur thinking it's there but it isn't?

    Does that sound stupid?

    They could have used other British homes perhaps, but on the whole it does sound intriguing.

    Whoever knowingly gave permission to let this happen knows the plot and found it acceptable, so let's wait and see how it works out.

    I have a feeling that they intentionally chose this place for both story (go ahead and take a stab at Bay) and real life purposes. Maybe we will see some sort of alternate reality like others have suggested.

    At this point, if there wasn't one already, there's a giant dart board full of "ideas" for the films. They shoot a dart, and whatever sticks is literally thrown in.
