The science fiction film starts shooting at the Three Natural Bridges, a series of natural limestone bridges located in Fairy Maiden Town, Wulong County. The three bridges are all named after dragons, namely the Tianlong (Sky Dragon), Qinglong (Azure Dragon) and Heilong (Black Dragon) Bridges. They are part of the South China Karst UNESCO World Heritage Site. [Photo by Liu Qiang/China.org.cn]
Scenes for the latest Transformers movie were filmed in south China on Wednesday, with cast and crew, including director Michael Bay, having to brave the drizzle.
One of the locations for "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction" is Wulong Karst in Chongqing, which was named as a world natural heritage by UNESCO in 2007.
The scenery of Wulong will appear in the movie for about two minutes, Bay told media in front of the Three Natural Bridges, a distinctive landscape in the nature reserve.
The movie, due to be released in June 2014, is partly set in Hong Kong. In addition to locations in China, the movie is likely to woo more of the country's filmgoers as it stars Chinese actress Li Bingbing.
