Latest Transformers 2 Updates

Lots has been going on in regards to next Summer’s arguably most anticipated sequel – “Transformers 2” – and here’s a compendium of all the latest action.

First up the title has been announced and move over “Terminator Salvation”, here comes “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen”. Shudder.

Meanwhile, Michael Bay tells MTV News that unlike other films of late, this sequel will NOT serve as a setup for a third film and insists the project will be completely self contained.

Some filming will take place next month at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base’s Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group in Tuscon – a facility better known as ‘The Boneyard’ as it is the sole respository of out-of-service aircraft from all branches of the U.S. government.

Shooting has been very public on the project of late with photos leaking out all over the place – most notably here and here. The photos cover the night shoots at the Bethlehem Steel Factory which was transformed into a war-ravaged fictional Chinese city for the early scenes of the upcoming sequel. The full-sized Optimus Prime robot has been spotted on set as most of the filming revolved around helicopters buzzing and lots of pyrotechnics.
