HONG KONG (AFP) - Mark Wahlberg and the cast of the latest Transformers instalment brought Hollywood glamour to Hong Kong on Thursday for the world premiere of the sci-fi movie which was partly shot in the city.

Wahlberg, accompanied by co-stars Stanley Tucci and Nicola Peltz, said Hong Kong played a crucial role in Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

"Hong Kong is basically another character in the film and it was an honour to work here," the 43-year-old star said on the red carpet at the harbourside Cultural Centre.

"It's just bigger and better," Wahlberg said of the new film as excited fans screamed at the sight of him.
