Transformers 3 production has moved to Trump Tower again, this time shooting at night and using “flame and smoke effects” on rooftops, according to ChicagoBreakingNews. It was more than just smoke and flame effects, this was “Bayhem” to its fullest, with ten or so rooftop explosions at multiple buildings. The action was filmed from a helicopter (and presumably from below as well) whilst police vehicles drove away from the action down below.
Transformers 3 has also been spotted on the south side, filming alongside the rail tracks, including Autobot chase scenes, scenes of pedestrians running away screaming, and a video showing all the vehicles lined up, including what’s presumably Skids and Mudflaps new look.
Transformers lined up on south side
Almost a full cast of vehicles here, including the Nascars, Bumblebee, Skids, Mudflaps and Jolt.
The next video shows the Nascar vehicles hotly pursued by the Autobots from an angle right in the thick of the filming, by johnnyism13 who happened to be in the right place at the right time:
This video, from the same location, shows people running away screaming whilst a shiny blue car calmly drives past.
This is another view of the explosions we’ve seen already, but from a ground view, much closer. Thanks to ReidCollins.
