Giant plastic reproductions of several of the characters in Transformers: Age of Extinction are being displayed prominently in key locations in Hong Kong and in the mainland cities of Beijing and Shanghai as the movie continues to outperform in China. The Xinhua news service said that the inclusion of Chinese landmarks in the movie "won over the local moviegoers." In Hong Kong alone, the movie earned $10.5 million after only two weeks according to Hong Kong Box Office Ltd.. A manager of a local theater told Xinhua: "The movie is in its third week of release now and the public excitement may be a little cooler than two weeks ago, yet the movie’s popularity remains amazingly hot in the city." In addition, the wire service said, merchandise connected with the movie is being grabbed up at local department stores, some of which are displaying them at their entrances. The toys are also being sold at locations in the city that were used for the filming.
