Last month we told you that Santiago Calatrava‘s Milwaukee Art Museum was set to be featured in the now-filming Transformers 3, and so it has. Director Michael Bay and crew were there Monday and Tuesday of this week filming at the museum. The Journal Sentinel was also there keeping watch, filling you in on what to look out for after the movie comes out next summer and then you happen to catch it on cable two years later at noon on a boring Saturday afternoon. The paper also landed a few photos of LaBeouf and Bay, as well as lots of shots of crew members and security guards, all of which are available here. Here’s one action-packed sequence the paper was close enough to see:
Those who came, some with binoculars, were rewarded with the chance to watch Shia LaBeouf and newcomer Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (replacing Megan Fox as LaBeouf’s love interest) film a scene in which the two exit the front doors of the museum, cross the steps and climb into a yellow car with black accents – most likely Bumblebee, a Transformer who befriended LaBeouf’s character in the first Transformers movie.
Now just imagine how amazing that scene’s going to look in 3D! It’s going to feel like you’re right there with them as they walk down those stairs!
