Another batch of six official Revenge of the Fallen snaps have been released, this time showing us Megan Fox hiding behind a wall, Isabel Lucas looking scary with an astronomy book (kind of like that girl in Men in Black), Shia running from tanks and smoke, Ramon Rodriguez sitting in Bumblebee and Shia and Agent Simmons in the Smithsonian — presumably with Wheelie in the bag.
This shot of Isabel Lucas is at a whopping 3888 x 2592 pixels, at 8mb.
Zacklur is back with more Transformers 2 pictures from the night of Bumblebee’s 180 degree skid; with further close up shots of Isabel Lucas (Alice in the movie), Michael Bay directing and Shia LaBoeuf. This time we can clearly see the green goo on Lucas’ shoulder — spurted from some unknown source.
Prior to the Isabel Lucas shoot we saw yesterday and the Bumblebee skid, shooting was taking place at the Castle fraternity — on campus, “where the party’s at”, or some such. TFW2005 have provided pictures leading up to this, showing Michael Bay, Isabel Lucas and Shia LaBoeuf preparing for the scenes and taking time out with some fans. I especially like the shot of Shia taking some time out to sign a toy Bumblebee. Bumblebee, the real thing, can also be seen under his cover — rather indiscreetly:
Reporting to Powet.tv, Josh Landow was there later that day to capture video of Bumblebee screeching away and provide a report of the events that unfolded:
The frat house is known as The Castle because it looks like a castle. Bumblebee was parked out front and they made it look like he was parked in the bushes. There was a huge lighting screen over the car, and 2 giant light balloons (not sure how else to describe them) floating above the set.
The first shot was a bunch of well dressed good looking college coeds walking around to and fro with some of them seemingly converging on the BB Camaro, saying things like “Wow! Cool car.”
Next shot was the most involved and took about 3 hours to shoot from every which way, with different lighting, and with slightly different lines even. Shia and a few of the bit players were definitely ad-libbing or at least taking some liberties with the script. This shot consisted of Shia running out of the party because BB’s alarm was going off. Like I said BB was parked in the bushes which gets Sam into some trouble with the frat boys who came running after him asking “Hey Freshman, is that your car parked in our bushes?” Sam replies “uh uh no, it’s a friend’s car — he went to get a new shirt” (or something dumb like that — they kept changing that line). Fratboy responds “How about I park my foot up your ass?” Sam says “I’ll move the car now.” He gets in and has (fake) trouble closing the door because of all the shrubbery. It was hard to hear, but when he got inside the car, I think he said something about Decepticons. And yes it took 3 hours to shoot this.
Then they moved the crowd back a good ways to shoot some more extras walking about before finally getting to the scene that I knew had to be coming. Bumblebee backs up and drives away (as seen in my video). This was shot using Bay’s camera rigged Porsche Cayenne. I think they shot this like 4 or 5 times with the cars backing up to reset after each take
Filming continues at UPENN, this time it’s a frat party involving Shia LaBoeuf and newcomer Isabel Lucas, TLAMB has provided a set report which describes the in-doors scene via J Fuller:
I was in one of the party scenes. I had to get fitted with jeans and a button down dress shirt, we all were and Shia was wearing dark jeans and a black button down shirt. In the scene which they shot 3 times from different angles Shia was sitting on a old wooden chair when this girl [Isabel Lucas] in a green short dress (who I thought was an extra) was dancing in front of him and kept leaning into him. That’s it for the scene I was in but there is a lot more to it.
Action then moved outside, to a scene involving Bumblebee — Isabel (character named Alice?), leans into the car to speak with Shia, before stomping away. It also looks like there is “green goo” involved, at least that’s the impression you get from the pictures. A second scene with Bumblebee in motion was also filmed — with the car performing a 180 degree skid to line up perfectly with the building entrance (Drexel main building), Jszack got a great video of this scene:
These are some absolutely fantastic shots from zacklur showing Michael Bay, Isabel Lucas and Shia up close:
