While Tranformers 5: The Last Knight filmed in Michigan over the last few weeks, much of the action was filmed well out of the public eye on the lots of the Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac, or in the depths of the abandoned Packard Plant in Detroit, where only the bravest movie stalker would be found. However the production did venture out into downtown Detroit for a couple of days. Filming in Detroit always creates a buzz around town, and the scenes didn’t disappoint. Although you could only see what was going on from the ends of the streets, car chases and explosions were visible, Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg were on set, and for 48 hours downtown Detroit looked just a little bit like London, England. Oh, and Bumblebee!
I found myself in a handy parking garage which gave the best view of all, and spent a happy day watching the action. Some of my pictures have been shared by other sources already, and some were on Twitter, but here are some others, and more to come in the days ahead.
