While Michael Bay’s third Transformers movie (Transformers: Dark of the Moon) was closed off to most press, that didn’t stop Entertainment Tonight from getting on the set while the production was filming in Chicago.  They’ve just put their set visit online and unlike most of their set visits…this one is actually pretty good.  You get to see tons of explosions, the actors explain how things have changed, and you get to see the city of Chicago get ripped apart.  Hit the jump to check it out:

Here’s a choice quote from Shia LaBeouf via ET:

“I think what we were lacking in the second movie was heart.  But, I think with the addition of Rosie and new characters … you still have the magic of the first film, but you have depth in the ending of the third.  Sam’s coming out of heartbreak.  He’s looking for a rock. He’s looking for stability. He’s looking for a person who doesn’t love him because of his involvement in the wars, or because of his involvement with the robots. … And, so he’s looking to define himself and find a person who understands the definition and loves him for him, and he finds it in Rosie (Huntington-Whiteley).”

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is in 3D, directed by Michael Bay, and stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro, Alan Tudyk, Ken Jeong, Patrick Dempsey, and John Malkovich.  The film is slated to open on July 1, 2011.

Here’s the synopsis:

The Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009’s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There’s new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime “Transformers” character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.
