*Tyrese Gibson takes us behind the scenes of “Transformers 3” when he posted pictures from the set. Between takes the actor took photos of himself and co-star Josh Duhamel in their movie wardrobe, as well as snapping shots of a street scene which looks to have been  hit with a huge explosion.

Transformers 3 is currently being filmed in Chicago, Illinois, in the downtown area on Michigan Avenue from Wacker Drive north to Ontario. Production is expected to continue until August 23, Examiner reports.

Many of the actors from the movie franchise have stayed on to continue their roles, including Gibson who plays Chief Epps. The only dramatic change to the cast is the replacement of former female lead Megan Fox with Victoria’s Secret Model, Rosie Alice Huntington-Whiteley.

This action-packed film is slated for release on July 1, 2011 in the US and made in 3-D.
