Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is expected to have a blockbuster debut in theatres worldwide. The high confidence and remarkable reviews of movie analysts and enthusiasts are based mostly on the initial materials presented about the film.

Due on June 24, 2009, the movie underwent obstacles in its production particularly the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike and the possible strikes by the Directors Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild.

However, executive producer Michael Bay finished the film’s production on time with the advanced visualization and scriptment of writers Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman and newcomer Ehren Kruger. The film began shooting from May to November 2008. The scenes in the movie were predominantly taken in the United States. Majority of the scenes set in foreign countries and a minimum of which were actually shot in those actual locations or nations.

With a brilliant storyboard material, filming the initial and majority of interior scenes began in May 2008 in the former Hughes Aircraft sound stages at Playa Vista in Los Angeles, California. A supposedly Shanghai scene was presented and taken at the Bethlehem Steel site in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. After several days of shooting, the crew moved to Philadelphia where they shot in several locations like Exelon power plant on Delaware Avenue; the University of Pennsylvania; Drexel University; the Eastern State Penitentiary; Fairmont Park; Philadelphia City Hall, Rittenhouse Square and the Chancellor Street which also represented a place near Place de la Concorde in Paris.

The following period gave way to the filming of the animation and second unit scenes, due to the impending 2008 Screen Actors Guild strike. Afterwards, more locations followed suit like two locations in New Mexico. In the first installation of the film, this location represented Qatar, but for the second film, it stood in for Egypt. An important component of the film’s making is the shoot in Egypt itself at the Giza pyramid complex and Luxor. Upon approval by the Egyptian government, the crew starts on with the shooting, with a fifty foot tall camera crane used at the location. Filming continued in Paris, and Jordan.

The designs of the robots used in the film have been thoroughly created by Hasbro, putting more time and effort than the first film. In order for the public to buy redundant toy characters, they kept the alternate modes for retained characters in the movie. A real F-16 Fighting Falcon and tank fire was used in the battle scenes. General Motors provided the new Autobot cars which were brightly colored for distinctive features on the screen. Due to its higher resolution of IMAX, it took quite a while to render an animation frame for this film.
