Riddle me this, Transformers fans: What is more annoying than Michael Bay’s promises of misinformation and gaudy rumors about Transformers 2 having an epic 20 robot smackdown? How about the fact that every movie site on the web today is racing to post their “exclusive” set photos from 2,000 yards away from the Bethlehem Steel plant where Michael Bay has set up shop? In my eyes, that is more annoying, by far.
I have spent my entire morning bombarded with new and exclusive pics from the set, all of which show nothing more than a few helicopters circling a lit power plant. No giant CGI robots, no explosions and above all, no Michael Bay. So instead of just covering all of the photos being published by other sites, I went out and found a super-secret set photo that is worthy of our discerning audience. Therefore, as you will see above, we have your first look at Optimus Prime on the set of Transformers in Bethlehem, PA. As well, our photo shows a sneak peek at one of the alleged 20 other robots that will appear in the film. We don’t like to be spoilers when it comes to stuff like this, but in this case we will make an exception.
All of our secret spy photographers are currently at a bar in Bethlehem getting wasted in preparation for tonight’s shoot, so we will be sure to keep you posted when more photos come through.
Transformers 2 will hit theaters on June 26, 2009.
