Bumblebee: The Movie
Returning home from his on-location coverage of the Bumblebee movie production location in Santa Cruz, our own BaCon discovered the entry signs for a second site just north of the city. He describes it as going up a remote mountain road toward the redwood forest, and he saw riding horses being brought in, though as one would expect, access beyond the security gate was not possible. We've got a photo of the entryway below, and we'll be keeping an eye out for more from this area!

By now, we have traveled the United States, and the World, watching Transformers movies. When it came to the 6th Transformers movie being made in California.

The Marin Independent Journal is reporting today that production for Transformers Universe: Bumblebee
has begun in the Peacock Gap area, in San Rafael, California.

A photo from just outside the closed filming was posted with the article. You can find that mirrored below.

They say truth is stranger than fiction, and when word comes down the pipe from Variety that the "Bumblebee" movie will be going head to head with "Aquaman" in the theaters, it is not hard to hear the echo from Big Bang Theory: "Aquaman Sucks!"
