From the set of Transformers 3 on 7/18/10. I saw Michael Bay using a iPhone 4 to shoot video before a scene was filmed. Also included are a few pics from the set for your enjoyment and a video I filmed of a explosion.

iPad 3G and iPhone 4 eh?

That's funny. Wonder how he feels about the lack of Blu-ray on Macs.

I love how even the few stills released atm already show mass chaos and destruction. Does the guy not know anything else?

And Megan Fox is gone.


Will not watch.

Really?

Hmmm, maybe I'll watch it then. Can't stand her now she totally ruined her face with that unnecessary plastic surgery.


She was Hot in T1 but now she looks like she's going to the same plastic surgeon as Lindsay Lohan.

This is the problem with these movies. It's all about the stupid actors and not the Transformers and Decepticons!

Those of us that are old enough to have grown up on the ORIGINAL television cartoon know it wasn't about any stupid actors and how hot they were. It's about the struggle between good and evil...not whether the nerdy, unlikeable guy can lay the hot girl (of which I agree with the above poster, is up for debate).

They should just take the people out of the movie altogether! :D

Gah, he's making a third one? Wasn't him mangling the concept twice bad enough?

I mean, I know he's not known for dialogue or plot, but even the action scenes on the first were not all that impressive and he barely even gave a nod to the original fans.

I didn't even bother watching the second one and from what I hear, it was worse than the first!

I kinda like Shia :(

*shudder*

He's one of hte many things wrong with that movie. He can't act! He's the same guy every single movie/tv show he's in (seriously, he pretty much acts exactly the same in every movie.... Nicholas Cage and Brad Pitt have shown more range than that guy!!!). And that character is annoying and completely unlikeable on top of that (I have a feeling he's like htat in real life as he can't seem to be any other character).

So making him the main character really helps to make the movie unwatchable cause it's very hard to like the main character (and it's the kind of movie you are supposed to be pulling for him).

I disagree.

Well then, I don't know what to tell you. Apparently you've never seen good acting then. (Acting is the art of playing different people. If all you do is play the same person and are unable to portray anyone different, you're not really acting. Watch Shia in any of his movies or tv shows, he's the same annoying kid in every single one. And I doubt it's cause he's being type cast. That usually happens with actors that portray a character so well that everyone loves the portrayel that they hire him to do the same one over and over... like Jack Nicholson or Christopher Walken. Hell, I can't relaly tell if Nicholos Cage is type cast or can't act, I have a feeling it's a little of both).

Well I don't know Shia personally in real life. But the characters I have seen him play I have enjoyed and thought he played them well. Some could be horrible people making him look good (like megan fox). I agree all his roles thus far have been pretty much the same, but that is what he sells. He has a new movie coming out soon, wall street never sleeps, or something. It looks like he will finally have something more serious..... guess we will see!

That's exactly right! Hollywood ruins just about anything it touches.
