Check out these Transformers 2 movie stills of Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox from Empire and USA Today. Looks like they worked in Shia’s hand injury into the movie!
Some of the movie’s scenes were shot in Giza at the actual pyramids, the first time access was granted to the 5,000-year-old site from the Egyptian government. The film’s Army liaison, Lt. Col. Gregory Bishop, notes: “As far as I know, this is the biggest joint military operation movie ever made, in terms of Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines. I can’t think of one that’s bigger.”
Among the equipment the movie is using in this desert sequence alone: two A-10 Thunderbolt II “Warthog” tank-killing jets; six F-16 Fighting Falcons; 10 armored Humvees; the Army’s Golden Knights parachute team; two Abrams tanks; two Bradley tanks; two missile-launcher vehicles; two armored personnel carriers; and a quarter-mile of the missile testing range, cleared of unexploded ordnance and built into an Egyptian town and temple.
