Hey, Deceps: Who's gonna clean all this up? Loveable Transformers trash Chicago
dateline: July, 2010: Chicago
Filming of Transformers 3 continues to picturesquely rubble up the streets along the Chicago River, this time in front of Milton Schwartz's Executive House, now Hotel 71. The actual transformers, including a 40-foot-tall Decepticon modeled after Rod Blogojevich, will added later via CGI.
Combatants struggle to secure Chicago's Wacker drive from adversaries to be added later, and every shot seems to require starting off with a big explosion. I think it's the law. Bay's law, actually.
Father Time takes it all in unmoved.
