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.

You can't tell me that Transformers The Last Knight wouldn't have been more entertaining if the movie's conflict was resolved by a rap battle between ...well, anyone really. But for purposes of argument I'm gonna go with Nitro Zeus and Cogman. Unfortunately that didn't happen. But to promote the Leader Class Megatron and Calibur Optimus Prime, TakaraTomy did engage the services of two Japanese rappers to extol the virtues of the two toys in a rap battle. It's all in Japanese, naturally, but it's more than hilarious enough to be worth a look. You'll find the video embedded in the full post just below!
