It's just less than 2 weeks for Transformers: Age Of Extinction principle photography to end. Actor Mark Wahlberg mentioned to MTV that they are in the "Home Stretch"
as Day 70 of 96 closes. "My kids just did a cameo, just scared people in the street looking up, but they did a great job. I was so nervous because Michael doesn't have time for bad performances," he said. "You have to understand; you're shooting a $300 million movie. You've got a lot going on. He's got five, six takes. If you ain't got it, you're done. I didn't want to see my kids get clipped. They were excited about, but they started to get mad at me because I'm trying to over-direct them. It went great."
The actor also… kind of… confirmed The Dinobots. He wasn't quite ready to talk openly about the secret though. "You can't say that, dude. Did you leak it? Did you leak it? You leaked it," he said. "Somebody leaked it, dude. Somebody was on the set leaked it, and it is not OK. It's not cool."
