Transformers To Feature Feature Crystals and New Age Healing

Transformers 2 Filming in Sedona

The Sedona Film Office in Arizona has been working overtime lately, reeling in huge Hollywood films. This year they’ll have Star Trek, Land of the Lost, and Transformers 2 shooting in their gorgeous Red Rocks formations, and hopefully John Tesh won’t be anywhere within view.

Now there’s a thriving new age tourist industry in the city. If this somehow translates to Optimus Prime talking about “healing crystals” or the power of the spirit in this new movie, then you might as well just give up and start taking yoga classes now. That is, before our new spiritual robot overlords start forcing us.
