Live on Yahoo! - World Premiere of "Transformers: Age of Extinction" in Hong Kong tonight!

Tonight, starting from 7:45 PM, Hong Kong is set to be the stage of the World Premiere of "Transformers: Age of Extinction"!

If you have caught the trailer, the action-packed Michael Bay-helmed movie was partially filmed on location in Hong Kong, and with the help of visual effects, the city was heavily demolished by warring giant robots.

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" takes place four years after the last movie - a time when the Autobots and Decepticons have gone underground after being hunted by the government. That is until a mechanic discovered a machine that did not seem to be what it was.

To celebrate the World Premiere, director Michael Bay and cast members Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reyne are set to land on the red carpet in Hong Kong. Joining them and performing on stage will be Grammy Award-winning rock band, Imagine Dragons!

Imagine Dragon's original song "Battle Cry" was used throughout the movie and the band also worked closely with composer Steve Jablonsky with the film's musical scoring.

The expected schedule for the live stream are as follows:
9:30-9:40pm: Introductions from host, pre-packaged content (trailer, b-roll around Hong Kong, etc) - time delayed
9:40-10:00pm: Highlights from red-carpet – time delayed
10:00-10:45pm: Imagine Dragons live performance – live (approx 7 songs including "Battle Cry")

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" will open in local cinemas on 26 June.

Who's excited to see Optimus Prime back on the big screen? Or are you more hyper about the appearance of Grimlock?
