Video: Alleged Recycled Footage Found in 'Transformers 3'
Michael Bay is accused of recycling footage from his old movie for a high-speed car chase sequence in 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', and adding 3-D touch to it.


Making blockbuster summer action film with estimated $195 million budget, Michael Bay may have cut some costs in the production of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon". The filmmaker has been alleged of recycling footage from his old movie "The Island" for action scenes in the latest installment of the sci-fi film franchise.

The said scenes involve a high-speed car chase featuring a robot crashing cars. The similarities are seen in a car placement, damage from impacts and flying debris which are all set on the same street background. The robot is believed to be digitally superimposed through CGI.

Interestingly, the 2005 movie starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson was not made in 3-D. Thus, the original scenes may have had to be converted post production.

Should the accusation be true, "Dark of the Moon" won't be the first "Transformers" movie which uses recycled footage. The first film had a scene featuring an aircraft carrier which was previously used in "Pearl Harbor". In the original scene, however, there are fighter jets on the ship.
