Transformers 2 Performing Pickup Shots

Turns out that Transformers 2 production is not quite finished as the cast performed some pickup shots this week for the film. This information is supported by an interview with Tyrese, a tweet from Megan Fox and a video of the area that includes shots of Shia, Fox, Optimus and Bumblebee.

Megan's tweet:
surprise surprise! shia and i were filming some more scenes the other day. can't wait for everyone to see :)
Tyrese on the shoot and pickups with SciFi Wire:
"Yeah, we did some new scenes, some new shots, got to the set around 10 this morning," Gibson said in a group interview. "Today we officially wrapped Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. Any missing pieces there were, we picked them up today. They're going to go ahead and put it in the chop shop and put the magic around it and go ahead and add it into the film."

What exactly were the pickup shots you did today?
Gibson: I can't really speak on it, but that was a nice try.

Did you get to go to Egypt?
Gibson: No, I didn't get to go to Egypt. I was supposed to go, but you won't be able to tell I'm not there. ...

Will you be part of the third one?
Gibson: I didn't die in 2. I can tell you that.

Based on Megan Fox's outfit, Shia's burnt shirt (as seen here), the background, and set, this appears to be pickup shots for the Egyptian desert sequences. They may also being doing pickups for Princeton based on the outfits of some of the other people on set. The magic of Hollywood where one scene has the potential to have been crafted from literally around the world. Thanks to Megatron for the video link.

  1. looks like shia had to refilm that scene with megan where they jump off the building because the stunt double is clearly seen. plus you can see the double when m-tron is behind him in the desert shot in this new trailer

    just my guess :)

  4. If they're doing a re-shoot, it's probably to change how Sam is brought back after he is "killed" in an explosion. He is originally revived by the "gods" (Primes) in a dream, but I heard through the grapevine that that scene didn't play out very satisfactorily. Hence the revision.

    Just an assumption.

  6. Heh, the skeptic who's gonna eat crow come June 24 :D

  7. Yeah---that's why Sam is standing on the edge of a building next to Mikaela with a tattered shirt.....because people that are "dead" stay standing up instead of fall to the ground----You haven't seen the film---noone is buying your BS

  8. HAHAHAHAHAHA! My post above was a smartass comment that was meant to imply what happens to Sam in the scene they're doing pickups for. I'm playing you like a sucka'...not because I'm feeding you lies, but I could bring up a bunch of spoilers that are true and you'll think I'm not being honest.

    -There is no opening narrative by Optimus at the beginning of ROTF

    -The Fallen has magnetic powers

    -Optimus, after being revived by Jetfire, combines with the parts of other robots, before taking on The Fallen and defeating him.

    -The U.S. military uses special artillery to take out Devastator...with the help of Agent Simmons (hence the photos of him on a walkie)

  10. still filming? two month until premiere...

  11. They're not "still filming". They haven't filmed anything since last Fall. They are doing pickup shots. That's when you've got your edit all finished and realize you could really have used a shot of this or that, so you go back and shoot it while you still have the time.

    Thanks anon up above for explaining that. I didn't know what were "pickup shots" to begin with.

  13. Why were those people speaking terrorist on the camera? Most people don't understand that language. I swear I could hear some human bomb yelling Jihad ala akbar! or something in the background.

  14. Sam dies, lies.

  15. "Sam dies, lies."
    ----------------------------
    YUP---He throws in 1 thing he thinks is a surprise w/already known info.

    A coloring book {yeah a baby's book} told us that Simmons will have a hand in bringin down the house aka DEV's. Peter Cullen already said he recorded the opening before doing the rest of the film. The Fallen has magnetic powers---that wasn't a hard one to assume.....metal + electricity + teleportation + energy from the sun----seems easy enough.

    Then his new one is Jetfire & Prime combine not only after Prime is revived but they use parts from other bots-----F'n B.S. What a total loozer---probably K-Fed's long lost twin :)

    Are you just lame on your own or are you getting paid to bash the franchise and act that dumb?

  17. Although i dont see Sam or Mikela dying in this film in a leaked script Mikela was going to be almost killed by Megatron leaving the ending of the film with Sam thinking she is dead. While she is looking out over the battle that happened.

    And yes i do believe one of them could die in the third.

  21. all right im calling it Mudflap, n arcee die. and to those of you that are wondering why you dont REALLY see Iron Hide, Ratchet and the other autobots in the trailer is because they have special role's in the film. Michael Bay said that you havent seen Jolt and the other autobots in the trailers and other clips in robot form that much because they have important role's in the film. also if you think back to the first films trailer's none of them included Brawl. and he had a more important role than BoneCrusher.

  22. hey guys i just realized something....

    the red bot fitghing Bumblebee isn't rampage...or any of the constructicon we know about. This isn't coz of the colours....it's rampage's size..his about bumblebe siz...or twice as big.....and franckly thats too small

    Now before you bash me...get this first:
    - Devastator is HUGE, his mouth alone is has big has bumblebee...his face is bigger than optimus......and has we all seen in the trailer hisharms are quite big and long, and weel rampage is he's right arm..therefor h due to mass shifting he has to be at least 3,5 or 4 times bigger than bumblebee

    Seriusly check out the trailer....rampage is at undergound with long haul to revive megs and he looks to be about the same size as long haul....from wut we could see long haul is much much more bigger than megatron


    so by that logic..the red transformers cant be rampage.....maybe he's the 8th constructicon

    ReplyDelete
  23. i think he is just a guy who happens to also be a construction vehicle. not a constructicon at all.

    constructicon as defined by a member of Devastator.

    Underground huh? AHAHAHAHAHHAHA! Didnt know Megs was buried at a cemetery.

  25. i dont know if this proves anything but i just watched the trailer again, and noticed that on devastator at the end under his mouth is the same door or cabin thing that demolisher has. watch the trailer again, i think that demolisher is a construction who forms devastator now.

    and second, is it just me or does the fallen kind of look like a terminator (just his face). lol

    and this has to do with the first movie, i hope when blackout supposedly died, that was energon coming out of his crotch ewwwwwwwww lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. Bonecrusher thats interesting. interesting because i'm not sure if anyone ever thought of Demolisher as a possibility for being a part of Devastator.


    oh wait...

    ReplyDelete
  27. dont worry, you're a good kid.

    but everyone kinda knows thats demolishor, or a robot that looks exactly like him.

  28. How do the guys that run this site know that is the real megan tweeting that is my main question for this news article.

    ReplyDelete
  29. how do you know this site isn't run by megan fox?

  30. My sabbatical from this site lasted less then 24 hrs... o well

    On to the seekers, I hope the 3rd one isn't Thrust. (assuming the first two are thundercracker and skywarp). I'd love to see Blitzwing, eventhough he isn't really considered a seeker, and the fact that Orci said there are no triple changers this time around. My money is on Ramjet as he has already been featured in the comic book series.

  31. This new article seems to confirm Soundwave won't have an vehicle altmode is I'm reading it correctly. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-ca-transformers3-2009may03,0,5112046.story

    ReplyDelete
  32. its been well known there is no vehicle mode for soundwave.
    suspected that he never even makes it to earth.

  33. doesn't gibson just spoil part of the movie in the interview?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I hope neither Sam or Mikaela die. That would suck cuz she's hot and Sam finally gets this girl for two years just to see her die. I would be pissed if I were Sam and that happened!
