It’s been a pretty busy weekend for the Rise Of The Beast filming crew that has come back to Cuzco to shoot more scenes. We have some new videos, images an information about the recent filming days in the city in Peru.
- Steven Caple Jr, Michael Bay & Bumblebee video – Michael Bay shared on his Instagram account a video together with ROTB director Steven Caple Jr. from the set in Maras, Cuzco. Mr. Caple thanks Michael Bay for his help with the filming and “passing the torch” of the Transformers movies to him. They show Bumblebee’s new car mode too.
- Michael Bay In Machu Picchu – Once again, Michael Bay shared a video on his Instagram account showing off the impressive view of the ancient Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Mr. Bay is sure impressed with this location!
- Transformers Fan Expo In Cuzco – A group of local Cuzco fans organized a big Transformers expo to promote the movie. The expo included big dioramas, Transformers toys and more. They even customized several cars as G1 Bumblebee, Transformers 2007 Barricade and more to be driven and shown to the public in Cuzco streets.
- “Carnaval Del Cuzco 1994” Scene In Cuzco’s Main Square – This scene has been shot during the last days. Cuzco’s main square was closed to public and production really made a great effort working in real traditional decoration all over the building around the main square. An amount of more than 500 people among extras and traditional folk dancing groups are expected to be part of this scene. We are so glad the production is taking care of every single detail and involving so much with local citizens and businesses.
- Transformers cars rolling out in Cuzco – All the Transformers cars were rolling themselves over Cuzco streets to be part of the new scenes. Local fans and citizens were lucky to see them very close. The mysterious old VW van now features all its logos and text in Spanish. This character is rumored to be Wheeljack, it’s still unclear if this would be the case, but there’s a video where we can clearly listen to indications for a scene where they say “Wheeljack”.
