Shia & Rosie Take "Transformers 3" to Shanghai!

Posted Thursday July 14, 2011 12:26 PM GMT

Continuing onward with their massive overseas promotional tour, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” stars Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington Whiteley attended a press conference for the film at the Waldorf Astoria Shanghai in Shanghai, China earlier today (July 14).

While fellow castmates Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey and Tyrese Gibson were not in attendance, the action flick's director Michael Bay was on hand for the question and answer session.

Despite today's event, Chinese fans may have to wait some time before they are able to watch the latest installment - as no foreign film is allowed into China until the Communist Party's "The Beginning of the Great Revival" earns at least $124 million at the box office.

Until that number is met, the two-hour tale, a celebration of the rise of Communism in China, has blocked any competing films, including "Transformers" from reaching any of its cineplexes.
