'Transformers 3' Car Carnage Hits Chicago


UPDATE: More images of the set and new Autobots and Decepticons here.

The crew of “Transformers 3” has begun its takeover of downtown Chicago. While most of the press has focused on the movie shutting down Michigan Avenue this coming weekend, streets near Cars.com HQ were commandeered this past weekend. These images were shot by the crew of Chicago Pizza Tours — yes, they take folks to the best pizza joints in the city — on the same streets made famous in “The Dark Knight.”

In most of the images, you only see the devastation left in the wake of the Transformers and not the robots themselves. It seems most of the action for these shots will be CGI, but one shot we have below does snag one of the Autobots, Ratchet, parked right outside our headquarters.

Rather than pile all that fake concrete, why don't they dig up the actual street and repave for us? God knows we need it.


I would have asked that question... I am sure they have some extra money in the budget. Even if this one sinks, they still made almost a billion on the last one.


Why repave streets? This is Chicago! Lets pocket some money, right, Illinois?


any money that the city gets for this is going straight to recreational archery, c'mon guys.
