Now things are starting to get interesting, as it was reveled the producers requested there be a battle where the Pangu Plaza Hotel is destroyed in the film. Also reported, the filming of the China and Hong Kong scenes are planned to begin October 2013.
Beijing Pangu will finance production of the film. In return, the company's flagship building, the Pangu Plaza Hotel, will be shown in the film. The hotel is located near the National Stadium and Beijing National Aquatic Center, both of which "Transformers" producers would like to include in the film. Scenes shot at the hotel will show alien robots fighting. The Pangu itself will be shown blowing up in the film.
