Many of the studios' mega-budget movies will open in the US, Canada, and China from May to August.

Previously, the film regulators were scheduling Hollywood movies five to six weeks in advance, which eventually hampered local marketing campaigns. But now, it’s confirmed that the mega-budget films will premiere in North America and China on the same day.

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’

Transformers: The Last Knight” will be released in the United States, Canada, China, and England, on June 23, 2017.

This science fiction film is based on the toy line by Hasbro. “Transformers: The Last Knight” is the fifth installment in “Transformers” film series, and a sequel to 2014 blockbuster “Transformers: Age Of Extinction.”

The movie has been directed by Michael Bay, with Stanley Tucci and Mark Wahlberg returning from “Age of Extinction” and Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, and Josh Duhamel from the first film.

Transformers: The Last Knight” will be released in IMAX 3D, by Paramount Pictures. The story is about Cade Yeager, who has formed an artificial colony with Bumblebee and several Oxford professors. He wants to know why the Transformers keep coming back to our planet.

In March 2015, Deadline reported that Paramount Pictures was negotiating the project with Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) and asked him to pitch new ideas for the film.

A Paramount Pictures spokesperson has revealed that most of the scenes of “Transformers: The Last Knight” have been shot in Cuba, Phoenix, Michigan, Chicago, and Wales.
