'Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen': Day 2

A robot! (Nikon 300mm f/2.8)

Isabel Lucas, Ramon Rodriguez and Megan Fox chat and relax before their next scene.

Today was the second day of filming "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" at Princeton. The above photos submitted to The Daily Princetonian include one of an actual robot on a car used in a scene and the other is in front of Firestone Library, where they chose to shoot again. The black shirt Transformers 2 crew members are ubiquitous and they have staked out more of campus today.
As word spread of Shia LaBeouf (there were literally screaming girls this time) and Megan Fox's presence at Princeton, more of the townspeople made it out to places on campus where they were shooting, which included the Frick Chemistry lab, a McCosh lecture hall and the Cloister Inn eating club (puzzling why they chose Cloister since it's pretty far down, but that may be exactly why they chose it: to avoid some of the crowds). Throughout most of the afternoon and evening nearly all of the grassy area in front of Dillon Gym was sectioned off (with the largest crowd gathering that I've seen at Princeton all summer).

The crew seems to be making a lot of progress as it constantly shifts locations, and the tents set up by Whig and Clio are stocked with food ready to feed the hungry crew members. They seemed to have moved the equipment (including several fake heads) from East Pyne today.
The weirdest thing about all of this is watching actors pretend to be us (Princeton students).
