Tell me where your friends are hiding
Bumblebee: I'll never talk!
Blitzwing: Is that right? Then let's make it official
Charlie starts playing the first track (of a vinyl record) on Sam Cooke's album Sam's Songs, which ought to have been "Little Things You Do" rather than "Unchained Melody". "Unchained Melody" (the song heard in the film) doesn't even appear on the album, being the last track on side A of Cooke's earlier release "Hits of the '50s."
The Paramount Pictures, Allspark Pictures, dB Pictures and Tencent Pictures logos are accompanied by a series of robotic sounds.
Although the original British submission was uncut and rated 12A, it was replaced by a cut PG version removing 6 seconds of violence/injury.
