The Milwaukee Art Museum reopens today, after being closed to accommodate crews filming the movie "Transformers 3."

The city was abuzz Monday and Tuesday as crews worked inside and outside of the museum, with sightings of the film’s stars Shia LaBeouf and Patrick Dempsey. Director Michael Bay was also there.

Museum spokeswoman Vicki Scharfberg said the crew was terrific and respectful of the building designed by Santiago Calatrava

She says they are thrilled the movie will come out next summer as they are celebrating the building’s 10th anniversary.

VISIT Milwaukee has estimated the production will bring $1 million to the area in salaries, hotels, food, fuel and equipment. VISIT Milwaukee spokesman Dave Fantle says film crews are still negotiating over filming at the empty Tower Automotive site.

Report by Irfan for ByteloveBlogs

The 3rd and latest installment in the upcoming Transformers franchise directed by Michael Bay is currently in production. Expected to hit the big screens somewhere in the mid 2011, this film is already generating a lot of interest in the virtual world. People all around are taking advantage of this curiosity to generate clicks for their videos and blogs .

One of the leading search keyword for the TF fraternity is "Transformers 3 Trailer". People have wasted no time in capitalizing this opportunity. If you were to do a search with the above keyword on youtube, be sure to expect a lot of results; or mis-results so to speak 😉

Transformers 3 Trailer is still not released on the Transformers official website. The so-called ‘TRAILER’ or ‘TEASER’ for Transformers 3 is just another way for people to have some fun or generate more clicks for their youtube channel or both. In any case we do not get to see the Transformers 3 Trailer 😦

Initially I was really pissed when I browsed thru many irrelevant videos with the title ‘Transformers 3 Trailer’. But once I let my guard down I was able to draw some humor out if it!

I am uploading some of the amusing (and irritating) videos posted by users in the name of Transformers 3 Trailer.
Have fun or enjoy abusing!!!

‘Transformers 3’ Shoot Is A Disaster, ON PURPOSE

Report By Pamela Jones for CBS Broadcasting Inc.

Car wrecks. Fires. Explosions.
No, it wasn’t some disaster. It was the movie "Transformers 3." Filmmakers took over downtown streets and turned them into scenes of destruction.
CBS 2’s Pamela Jones checked out the action and talked with one of the movie’s big stars.
The scene of destruction at Washington and LaSalle streets included crunched up concrete and smashed cars -– enough to draw a lot of fans trying to get a peek at Hollywood. They got stars and fireworks, too, as special-effects technicians detonated explosions.
Signs gave pedestrians a heads-up that it was coming, but spectators say they were shocked and awed each time.
"That was awesome!" one bystander said. "The anticipation was worth it."
Fans lucky enough to be at Washington and Wabash also got up close with co-star Patrick Dempsey, who was cast in the movie a few months ago.
"It’s my first day here, and to be on the set is really fantastic," he said. "It’s amazing the size of the production and it’s exciting."
Fans nearly lost it when they thought they saw the movie’s star, Shia LaBeouf, running toward them. One man came prepared with two cameras and got images of LaBeouf and director Michael Bay.
The film shoot continues for the next six to seven weeks in Chicago. Local officials who coordinate the production here estimate "Transformers 3" could pump at least $20 million and generate 200 jobs for the local economy.

Filming for the movie will only last two days on a closed set located in the Milwaukee Public Art Museum. Intermittent closures are expected on Lincoln Memorial Dr. throughout the two days.
