We've got two stories of note to share here: first is The Hollywood Reporter speaking to Transformers: The Last Knight star Jerrod Carmichael, and among other subjects he talks about learning on-set to adjust his comedy for places like China. That kind of focus has paid off for Paramount and director Michael Bay, with Deadline reporting that TF5 has earned $48 million in China so far - with the possibility of a hundred million dollar opening in that country looming. Keep reading for excerpts from both stories!
On the first day, I said something that I thought was really funny and I even got the crew laughing but then Michael was like, "If you’re in China, what is that joke?" And I was like, "Oh, you’re right. That joke doesn’t work in China." So you learn to adjust. You have to think about comedy in a new way and that was a real challenge and I learned so much that hopefully I can apply it to my own work in some type of meaningful way.
