Transformers 5 The Last Knight
China Gets Two Extra Minutes Of Transformers: The Last Knight
RAC - Thursday, June 15, 2017


China Film Insider has revealed that the Chinese cut of Transformers: The Last Knight will be two minutes longer than the US version of the movie, clocking in at 150 minutes even. The official running time for TF5 has been listed as 148 for the rest of the world - so what changed? It's impossible to say at this point but as the article details, it wouldn't be the first time a US movie tacked on footage of Chinese actors to try and better the film's chances of success there. Keep reading for details.
An official distribution notice sent to Chinese exhibitors was released online Thursday showing a running time of 150 minutes for the film — two minutes more than the 148-minute version playing in the rest of the world. It’s unclear what the extra two minutes in the Chinese version includes.

Foreign films that have been cut for screening in the Chinese market include Logan, which shed 14 minutes; Dangal, which lost 21 minutes; and The Lost City of Z, whose local distributors decided to lop off a whole 37 minutes.

It’s not the first time a Hollywood movie has been tweaked to offer a different version for local audiences. In 2013, Marvel Studios edited a “Chinese” version of Iron Man 3 featuring actress Fan Bingbing, who played a young doctor that helps save Robert Downey Jr in a scene that was cut from the original version seen elsewhere. It was met with a mixed response in China.


The article goes on to say that it will be director Michael Bay's final Transformers movie... but as we're fond of saying here, it's his fourth final TF movie, going by his past statements. We'll see how things develop.

Facebook's built-in translator is... not perfect, let's say. Charitably. The name in the headline, "Gold Plating Invincible Admiral Micronesia" is how Facebook translates "Lucky Draw Leader Class Megatron" out of Chinese. Keep reading for the photo, via tfbizonline.me!
Furio Tedeschi has posted to his Facebook page, sharing a high res image of his concept for Optimus Primal for The Last Knight. Of course this idea never made it in the final film, which just invites all sort of speculation as to what stage of development this existed in and what context it might have been intended for use. However, short of a comprehensive behind the scenes guide book to the movie, which seems just a bit unlikely, we'll probably never get to find out these answers. But it's still fun to look at the pictures! Click through for the full resolution image.
Paramount Home Media Distribution has officially announced that it will release on 4K Blu-ray 3D Blu-ray and Blu-ray director Michael Bay's blockbuster's Transformers: The Last Knight.
