Just when you thought a filming is over, they’re back for additional shooting. That’s exactly what happened with Transformers 4 Age of Extinction.

According to ECNS, China.org.cn learned that the crew was back to China on this Monday to shoot some new scenes in Wulong Karst National Park.

Here are some interesting snippets from the article about the filming;

At that time Bay once told China.org.cn, “The scene we shoot here (Wulong) is a very heroic scene with autobot leader Optimus Prime, it’s a very exciting and big scene.”

Due to the recent script alterations, the crew was forced to once again visit the Three Natural Bridges scenery of Fairy Maiden Town in Wulong County on Monday, and used two helicopters to get several grand aerial shots of the tiankengs (giant dolines) and naturally formed bridges on Tuesday and Wednesday. The scenes they shot will be used in “Transformers 4” to add visual impact.

    Sounds more like just additional B-roll shoots if they're just focusing on scenery...

    I says it's an reshoot due to script change and describes an epic scene with Optimus Prime.

    I think it will be more like additional add on stuff guys. They do this same thing all the time. Avengers did it, Cap America 2 and Guardions just did it as well. In fact most movies are doing this very thing now. More is added to a scene somtheybhav to go back and reshoot. And from the sounds of it, this will probably be additional footage for a OP fight scene. And we all know how the last fires fight scene with OP turned out right. Epic!!

    Considering it states 'Aerial shots' I get the feeling that this reshoot will be for additional scenes... likely to show off the location.

    Actually they state its a 'heroic' scene.

    While this is true - 'script changes' might just simply mean they want to have a Decepticon flying down to attack OR something like that OR wanted the scene from a different angle or wanted new shots. It is not something to worry about. I remember the same fuss was made over 'The Avengers' when the cast went back to shoot the 'Shawarma scene'

    Sooooo does this mean from the scene where Optimus leaves the autobots and humans is probably not gonna happen because of the script changes?...
