    If he wants to film in China to save money on actors, someone tell him I would volunteer if I was paid in movie merchandise.

    Given the ever expanding market for films in China I could see why Paramount would want an edge over other studios for part of that market.

    Why not! Everything else in this world (including Transformers) is made in China...why not a Transformers movie.

    So until the movie comes out, it's just going to be months and months of 'TF4 to film here'? I like it and all but this is really making me wonder what's gonna happen in the movie, I'm kinda excited and kinda disappointed, since if they DO film in all these locations, we'll only see glimpses of them most likely--like, all over the world scenes. Kinda when the pillars were activated in DOTM (we see random cons activating them in places around the world).

    China's got a lot of locations to film in: cities, seasides, forests, mountains... and deserts.

    This should be good. As long as MBay doesn't do something like filming in the Gobi.

    How about this for a plot; Decepticons reborn in China (They have an energy source powerful enough to ressurect any dead Transformer) Decepticons plan on stealing that and ressurecting their fallen comrades

    Perhaps even a nod to Transformers Prime with that location in China that the cartoon loves to use. Animated the location looks pretty cool but CGI just can't capture how cool the place looks in photos or high definition video.

    I thought the fourth was going to be about a new group of Autobot's in space, or I am remembering something, that never happened? Anyway, be cool to see what they do in China.

    :bay 

    I'd pay good money to see that.

    We've had news of what, two or three filming locations? You do realize that movies can film in half-a-dozen places and still have key points take place in all of them, right?
