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
TFW2005 forums member Rookbartley has discovered a new Transformers: The Last Knight toy at their local store: the Optimus Prime Battle Blaster Sword! This roleplay toy has light-up features as well as both sounds and voice clips. It also converts from a sword-shaped gun to a full-on toy sword. Keep reading to see the photos.
Valvoline has just posted a new commerical touting their status as the official synthetic motor oil of Transformers: The Last Knight. In it, a series of people thank the Autobots - surprisingly earnestly and straight-faced for the most part - for the work they've done defending Earth. (Which is a better reception than we expect them to get within the film, honestly.) No mention or showing of Valvotron in the ad, but you can see it after the jump all the same.
The website Box Office Pro has posted its analysis of the impending Transformers: The Last Knight. It's an interesting read, a fairly level-headed look at the internal and external forces that could determine whether TF5 is a success, and how much of one. Our takeaway: ...there's another Planet of the Apes film coming out in July? Why? Anyway, click through for the full rundown.
A Twitter user by the name of @MoritaNisekira has posted an in-package image of the Silver Temenos Sword giveaway from TakaraTomy! This is being given away at Japanese ToysRUs stores as part of a larger promotional campaign for Transformers: The Last Knight which stretches into the fall. Keep reading for the photo!
Just in from TFW we have work that following the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee toys, a Barricade will be offered in a battle damaged edition as well. According to the report fans making a purchase of $1200 or more, will get one of these toys that are said to be limited to an edition of just 300 figures. Additionally, other items such a movie tickets, card-holder and plastic folders will be awarded for lower purchases.
