Chicago Movie Trailer Most Popular Ever

May 07, 2011

OK, so this story has almost nothing to do with Chicago real estate. Though, indirectly, it does.

There is a new movie trailer out for “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

In the first 24 hours, the trailer was downloaded more than 6 million times on iTunes Movie Trailers to become the most-viewed trailer in the site’s history.

The third installment in the Transformers series was filmed amongst Chicago real estate, right here in the Loop last summer.

Those of you who rely on CTA for transportation might not have a pleasant memory of the street closures and bus rerouting the movie precipitated, but the rest of us can’t wait to see our city on screen.

“Transformers represents big summer fun at the movies and iTunes Movie Trailers was the ideal place to debut the latest installment to a global entertainment audience,” says Amy Powell, Paramount Pictures’ Executive Vice President Interactive Marketing & Film Production.

And, where do you think some of those viewers downloaded the trailer? In their Chicago real estate!

The movie stars Shia LaBeouf, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Patrick Dempsey, Kevin Dunn, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and, of course, Chicago.

It will be 3D, and it’s due out July 1.
