BEIJING — The investment company behind the dragon-shaped Pangu Plaza hotel said Friday it is suspending cooperation with “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

The company said it revoked permission to use Pangu’s image in the movie, as well as in advertising. The company warned all parties not to use Pangu’s image, trademark or any shots of the interior or exterior, and said any such images, if already included, should be removed.

Pangu said it had entered into an agreement with Paramount Pictures and affiliated companies in June 2013 and the two sides had agreed that Pangu Plaza would be featured in the fourth “Transformers” film.

Pangu said the companies also agreed that the 234-room complex would be included in advertising and posters for the Michael Bay-directed summer blockbuster. In return, Pangu pledged to contribute financing to the production.

Pangu alleged that its partners had not lived up to their side of the bargain. A Paramount representative said the movie features the hotel prominently.

“Pangu Plaza has a prominent placement in ‘Transformers 4’ and it looks beautiful onscreen,” the spokesperson said Friday.
