Transformers 5 The Last Knight
China Celebrates 10 Years Of Transformers; The Last Knight Toyline Chinese Street Date Revealed
RAC - Thursday, April 20, 2017


The 7th Beijing International Film Festival is underway in China, and Paramount was there to promote Transformers: The Last Knight! In the process of doing so, China.org reports, Paramount Chairman Jim Gianopulos and President of Worldwide Marketing Megan Colligan revealed the location for an upcoming 10th Anniversary Celebration as well as the Chinese street date for the TF5 toyline. Keep reading for more info!
The 6 million votes in an online poll pointed to the city of Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, as the location to mark the anniversary, unveiled Jim Gianopulos, the new Paramount Pictures chairman, and Megan Colligan, the president of Paramount's worldwide marketing and distribution at a press conference held during the 7th Beijing International Film Festival.

Colligan thanked Chinese fans' support for the franchise as the previous four installments grossed 3.8 billion yuan (US$551.84 million) in China. The fourth installment, shot partly in China and starring Chinese star Han Geng and Li Bingbing, raked in 1.97 billion yuan (US$320 million) and was once the biggest grossing film ever in China until it was dethroned by later films like "Furious 7" and "Mermaid."

The worldwide total of the franchise reached US$3.8 billion.

Megan Colligan also revealed an exclusive long trailer of the new installment, "Transformers: The Last Knight," in front of Chinese press members and guests, featuring a typical Michael Bay styled explosion and robots fight on a grand scale. The new film will arrive in June alongside its brand new edition of Hasbro toys which will hit the market since April 28.


The Transformers: The Last Knight toyline hits US toystores this Monday, April 24th, with the film following on June 23rd. Paramount's presence at the Beijing festival would seem to assuage fears that distribution of the film would be impeded by financial troubles on the part of the Chinese distributor of previous films.

More Transformers 5 The Last Knight News
The Transformers The Last Knight global premiere will be taking it to the land of Stonehenge. Where, it will take place in Leicester Square, London on Sunday 18th June 2017. The event will include attendees from the film to be sure, but no word on who in addition to the director will be on hand for the red carpet event. Read on for more details that have been reported below.
Chowboom is reporting there's a new promotion for Transformers The Last Knight at Sonic. This one is bit more vivid than the others with color changing slushes drinks made in name of Optiumus Prime, Megatron & Bumblebee characters in movie branded cups, followed by stickers after May 29th. The drinks that sell for $2.29 are rolling out now at participating Sonic locations nationwide.
Fresh from Weibo we have a first hint of what we've been oddly overdue on hearing about within The Last Knight's toyline: A Hot Rod toy. NOTRAB has posted a photo of a bottom corner of some packaging, clearly labelled as Autobot Hot Rod, but with the toy itself kept out of view. The strange thing though? The package style is not consistent with any of the current The Last Knight packaging we have on shelves right now. Keep reading as we do a little more analysis on the matter.
Empire Magazine teased recently a feature article they were getting ready to publish that took a behind the scenes look at the late stages of production of The Last Knight, mostly focused around some face to face time with Michael Bay back in April. The article contents, scanned by Temenos offer a few tidbits, like more specifics on the Bumblebee movie next year, and how The Last Knight itself is actually a blending of three separate story pitches. You can find the scanned pages mirrored below - they're definitely worth a quick read if only to hear about the time Michael Bay's hair got vaporized on one of his sets!
Following the Build-A-Bear Workshop news, we have a new promotional video... Ready for a major change? The Autobots roll out at Build-A-Bear Workshop! Change them from bear…to bot, when you make your own Optimus Prime Bear and Bumblebee Bear. Complete with robot arms you can pose!
