Transformers: Age Of Extinction will feature “mother of all bombs”

Classic Bay

Michael Bay is set to live up to his reputation as one of the most explosive film directors in the modern era by exploding a humungous bomb in on the set of 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction.'

According to the Chicago Tribune, Bay, alongside his cast and crew, are set to complete shooting on the sequel in Chicago later this week, but only after they have set off an explosion that they've labelled the "mother of all bombs."

A source told the publication that it will take place on Wednesday afternoon in the city "around the silos on S. Damen Avenue and W. 29th Street in the Pilsen area."

This part of town has already seen vast destruction over the last few weeks, after Bay blew up a bridge, as well as setting off a huge fireball, that dazzled, impressed and even possibly singed people watching.

However, in the film, Bay is actually destroying Hong Kong, rather than Chicago, as he is using the infamously windy city as the shooting location for the Asian island. Hong Kong flags, street signs and taxis have replaced the usual American garb, which Bay has done several times throughout the film's shoot.

Michael Bay's 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction' will be released on June 27th 2014, and stars Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammar, Stanley Tucci, and Jack Reynor,

Are you looking forward to 'Transformers 4'?

Gregory Wakeman is a film enthusiast who believes that 2007's Transformers is criminally overrated. However, Transformers 2 & 3 can safely be described as the most hideous cinematic creations of the last decade.
