    ok random I know right?
    Well in 05-06 I used to live in Rialto, CA and there was a large stretch of unfinished highway called the 210. It was set to open.
    Well I remember they were filming a movie using the not opened yet stretch of the 210, but we couldn't see a movie sign or anything like that, just a bunch of cars (honestly didn't see anything that looked like the transformer cars but I heard they were kept tightly under wraps) so we figured it was some car chase scene and after a week they were gone.
    Well a year or two later Transformers came out and I didn't even think about it, in fact i didn't even think about it later until right now.
    I am watching Transformers and the scene where all the autobots are headed to the city with the cube and Barricade and Bonecrusher arrive I saw some things on the side of the highway being constructed which yes a home depot etc was being built there at the time, then I saw the highway sign for the exits and yes it is the 210.
    I looked it up and sure enough that is where it was filmed.
    I now feel completely stupid that they wre filming transformers there, I saw it, (well not the actual filming) and didn't even realize it until all this time.

    Don't worry, Bay tends to keep things (And fail) under cover so you're not alone ;) .

    Remember Cloverfield? Damn, what the fuck lol. That shit was like area-51 secured, nothing could be leaked. Everytime they filmed something it had some fake production name like "Cheese" or some shit.

    MTME, you unknowingly lucky Dog, you.

    Hell yes (They must've hired Internet Leak Ninjas or something). I spent a majority of my time reading people's speculations and wondering "What the Hell is it!?"

    Awesome! Wish I could see a TF film (or any film) being made but, I don't live in a very interesting or fun place.

    Wow... that is one neat story!

    Yeah, I would have so loved to see a part of a TF movie being filmed in my area, but fat chance of that happening.

    I hope I can see TF3 being filmed. If the Decepticons plan to conquer Rhode Island lol.

    If the United States was a person, then Rhode Island would be the gooche.
