Production shot from Transformers 2

New photos have been released from the production of Tranformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, starring Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. Producer Michael Bay got the Egyptian government to allow filming in the actual great pyramid at Giza. That's amazing.

The studio told Bay he couldn't film there but Bay didn't listen. Bay told USA Today, "The studio was saying: 'You can't do that, you can't go there. It's dangerous. A-lah-lah-lah-lah."

He says he put it in his contract that he wouldn't do the movie unless he could shoot in Egypt and they finally let him. The studio got approval from the Egyptian government but there were still security hurdles once he was in Egypt.
