Transformers 5: The Last Knight - Details Of Cuba Shoot Reveal Plot Detail & Potential Spoilers
The Cuban news site Radio Rebelde has posted details of the impending Transformers 5: The Last Knight shoot in Cuba! The information given is mostly background information but represents a new plot development so we're marking it with a SPOILER WARNING
here. Keep reading only if you really want to know!
Next weekend, Audiovisuals ICAIC (Cuban Film Institute) will offer a new cinematographic service to foreign film production, in this case, for the U.S. film Transformers 5, directed by Michael Bay for Paramount Pictures.
According to Granma newspaper, the shooting will take place in Havana by a small film crew and will not require road closures, so it should not cause disruption to normal city life.
The scenes filmed in the Cuban capital, specifically in the area of the seafront and Old Havana will be part of a montage of shots in big cities of the world, to which, in post-production, robots will be digitally added to show how they have integrated into life on Earth.
Services to foreign production are part of the regular work of the Institute and aim to contribute to the income of foreign currency for the national film industry and to increase employment opportunities for Cuban technicians and artists.
This information, if true, represents a major change from the situation presented in Age of Extinction, where the Autobots were hunted by the United States as embodied by Frasier Crane. Either KSI's mass-produced Transformers went ahead despite Joshua Joyce's obviously figuring out this was a bad idea, or we've had a shift in attitudes between movies again.
