Transformers 3 production returned to downtown Chicago and the Michigan Street Bridge. This time the destruction sets and props went up a notch. Scenes included Sam and Carly running to escape in Bumblebee and more running, this time across the bridge with some soldiers.
A short break in the Chicago filming saw the crews head to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to film scenes at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Spotted on set were Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington, along with newcomer Patrick Dempsey in an Aston Martin. There’s also a 1972 yellow Datsun, which breaks down.
Below is a set of videos from the shoot:

The reasons for Megan Fox being shunned from the third movie are unknown, but it probably revolves around a falling out with Michael Bay. For a while her replacement was rumored, before Nelson confirmed Rosie Huntington’s casting on the official MB site, and much more recently, he character name — not Mikaela, instead, “Carly”, known to fans as Spike Witwicky’s wife in Generation One Transformers.
I would like for all you S4TE fans to welcome Rosie Huntington Whitely to the world of Transformers. As some of you might know, she’s the new female lead in Transformers 3. She’s worked with Michael before in his Victoria’s Secret “A Thousand Fantasies” ad.
Huntington was first spotted on set with Shia at the end of June, first reported by Just Jared. A video is also available on MSN.
Then, on set again, Rosie was seen with Michael Bay and Shia in LA, this time by Coming Soon.
