It's set to be one of the smash-hits of the summer, with some big action scenes and major Hollywood stars leading the line-up.

But that hasn't stopped one Chinese investment firm ending it's relationship with the makers of the latest "Transformers" movie.

Beijing Pangu says Paramount Pictures hasn't met the obligations of a sponsorship deal, but didn't go into detail on what that was.

And it's asked for scenes of the company's distinctive dragon-shaped building to be removed from the film.

But the movie's director, Michael Bay, says he's proud of shots he made of the Pangu Plaza.

SOUNDBITE Director of "Transformers: Age of Extinction", Michael Bay, saying (English):

"The hotel looks beautiful. That's the reason why I picked that building because of the dragon. We worked very hard to get an air shot because it's such an iconic building and it's one of the great-looking buildings in Beijing. So I'm proud of the stuff we shot for Pangu."
