    Thinking back on the filming in Chicago, I do recall some scenes being set-up or filmed that didn't make it into the film. I thought I'd start this thread for others to chime in as well with things they saw.

    Here's what I witnessed:

    1) Sam, Carly, Epps, & his men running down LaSalle St with some business workers in tattered garments. As to what they were running from, noone can say. My guess was the driller or Shockwave.

    2) Optimus did workhorse duty driving down LaSalle with a flatbed trailer outfitted with accoutrements that were throwing dirt, tires, debris, and other things off the back. It's possible that the driller could have been right behind him, chasing him away from his knocked-aside trailer.

    3) Under Lower Wacker Drive, some large boxes were set up like some kind of makeshift homeless shelter area. Most likely where the remnants of humans hiding in Chicago were now forced to live.

    4) A ways Northeast of Millennium Park, there's a smaller park that was being prepped as some kind of landing area for Lennox's NEST.. They also had debris littered and a giant crater having opened up in the ground. I didn't see them film, but they were prepping it one day, and possibly did some filming the next.

    Anyone else see anything to report on?

    I remember seeing a video of a scene where a Smart Car was thrown across a parking lot. I think the Twins' cars were seen on that set too, but I'm not sure.

    Early on there were talks about a human revolt against the transformers and wanting them to leave the planet. Some pics turned up during filming but it really wasnt a part of the movie. Besides the autobots being told to leave by congress

    There was a scene filmed in Chicago that involved Ironhide's truck as well as a flipped bank truck in front of a bank. This scene was never used. I think it was being filmed and then later the freeway scene that the extra got hurt on happened and shooting shut down for a whole day and then it was said that the rest of the bank scene would not be finished and they then moved from that portion of Chicago. So i believe if the freeway scene would have worked and not go wrong, they would have had time to go back to Chicago and finish the bank scene involving Ironhide.

    It was from one of the first days of shooting when they were shooting in LA back in May. I do believe that the Twins were supposed to be involved.

    Now that I remember from the filming, seemed like a very complex, time consuming, and expensive scene to just waste......

    Was that shot down on Wacker Dr in front of the building with the dome on top?
    Maybe we did see it but there was just so much going on.


    My friend was down there with his brother, and saw one scene where a member of NEST gets flung off his feet. I was looking for that in the film, but didn't see it.


    I also wonder if Sam was meant to do some bridge-jumping. There was one day where his stunt double was jumping as parts of one bridge began to go up. I saw the guy hanging around at Trump Tower before they radioed for him to return back to the other side.
