Co-producer Allegra Clegg paid a visit to a Detroit area elementary/middle school as part of a campaign from Paramount Pictures that encourages school attendance. A three minute clip was shown to the kids as a part of the presentation (Those lucky little...). Check out this excerpt from The Detroit Hub for more information about the event.
That gave them the chance to have Clegg come to the school, talk about how
the film was made, career options in the film industry, as well as giving the
kids a first look at the next installment in the Transformers franchise, due in
theaters June 27, 2014.
The Durfee students were some of the first to
check out a three-minute extended clip of the film before anyone, anywhere on

"It takes thousands of people to make a movie like Transformers. The entire

to study now as elementary and middle schoolers to someday do what she is
