‘Transformers 4’ Set Footage Shows The Autobots In Chicago [Video]

A new behind-the-scenes Transformers 4 clip gives fan a chance to see the Autobots on the move.

Although the video embedded above was clearly put together by an amateur photographer, interested parties can still glimpse several vehicles from director Michael Bay’s upcoming sequel.

The footage from the set of Transformers: Age of Extinction was captured on August 26 in Chicago, Illinois. Judging from the clip, quite a few people turned up to see Optimus, Bumblebee, and their friends roll down Columbus Drive.

Try as they might, the folks at Paramount Pictures are having a tough time keeping a lid on things. Not only did a leaked call sheet reveal some closely-guarded secrets, information regarding the official title was widely discussed online ahead of its official release.

Since there clearly seems to be quite a bit of interest in next installment of the his franchise, Paramount will have to work overtime to keep this stuff off the internet. Although the clip is available as of this writing, the studio could yank the video at any moment.

Shortly after news that the Dinobots would appear in Transformers: Age of Extinction started spreading like wildfire around movie-oriented websites, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed that the characters would make an appearance in the sequel.

Although he dropped this nugget of knowledge on the folks at TFW2005, the producer didn’t give fans any concrete details. Given the amount of info that’s already found its way online, it’s only a matter of time before these secrets go public.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura also confirmed there will only be one version of the film available to the world when it hits theaters next year. Although Bay and Paramount Pictures are shooting a significant portion of the flick in China, moviegoers in the country won’t get any exclusive footage.

Michael Bay’s Transformers 4 stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, and T.J. Miller. The film should arrive in theaters across North America on June 27, 2014.
