'Transformers 3' Car Carnage Hits Chicago

UPDATE: More images of the set and new Autobots and Decepticons here.

The crew of “Transformers 3” has begun its takeover of downtown Chicago. While most of the press has focused on the movie shutting down Michigan Avenue this coming weekend, streets near HQ were commandeered this past weekend. These images were shot by the crew of Chicago Pizza Tours — yes, they take folks to the best pizza joints in the city — on the same streets made famous in “The Dark Knight.”

In most of the images, you only see the devastation left in the wake of the Transformers and not the robots themselves. It seems most of the action for these shots will be CGI, but one shot we have below does snag one of the Autobots, Ratchet, parked right outside our headquarters.
