Transformers Age of Extinction - 27 Million Lawsuit Returns!
BaCon - Wednesday, April 27, 2016


We reported on this back in 2014, but it appears with the roll out of Transformers 5 on the way. Paramount is now in court fighting a $27 Million lawsuit.

The suit claims that the Chinese company Wulong Karst Tourism, paid $750,000 to be placed in the film, but they never appeared in the movie that was shown in theaters.

Wulong Karst Tourism runs a resort in China's southern Wulong county, an area famous for its eroded limestone cliffs, a magnificent landscape known as "karst." Portions of Age of Extinction were shot in Wulong Karst National Park, and the tour company says its deal with Paramount was for a logo, featuring the Chinese characters “China Wulong,” to be displayed in the finished film, so Chinese audiences would know where the film was shot. The company says it paid nearly $750,000 (4.8 million yuan) before production began in exchange for the promotion.


Could this be a setback for the Transformers 5 movie's product and licensing opportunities? Which, are said to be a large part of the revenue from these movies.

According to the article on Hollywood Reporter, Paramount has made attempts to make up for the short-fall with direct Micheal Bay said to have made a promotional video for the resort.

However, it will be up to the Chinese court to decide what Paramount is liable for in the case.

The biggest surprise to this is that it was announced before Bumblebee: The Movie was even released. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner announced today that the Transformers Cinematic Universe is cancelled. The universe - which Paramount had so much faith in that they took four to five of the prospective scripts and put them in a blender to make Transformers: The Last Knight - will be replaced by what is described as a 'reset' of the Transformers franchise to happen no earlier than 2021 going by the film schedule offered to investors.
