With hair slicked back and co-star Shia LaBeouf sporting a bristling 'tache, the pair set about ripping up the turf in their Shermans.

An entire encampment of military tents and heavy vehicles also pitched up at Shirburn, near Henley-On-Thames.






Residents of the village – population just over 100 – were unaware of their new noisy neighbours until just a few days ago, according to reports.

The area was leafleted informing the locals of the potential for 'loud and unexpected noises' during the the shoot, which will continue from now until early November.

Said a spokesperson for Pinewood Studios: “We wanted to warn people in advance so that they are not alarmed - but also, we don't want people ringing the emergency services.”



A viewing platform is being built for local people to see the action being filmed.

The shoot is taking place on private land, with a German village and sawmill being specially built for the set.
