Production stalled in Chicago as Gabriella Cedillo, an extra was seriously injured driving her own car as background for a stunt shot. The stunt was taking place in the opposite lane and a metal object (rigging from a snapped cable) went flying through her windshield and struck her in the skull. Cedillo suffered permanent brain damage, including left side paralysis and limited vision in her left eye. Paramount Studios provided an undisclosed amount of money to cover the cost of her medical care.
Errors in geography: Aside from the name 'Chernobyl', the set used in the film bears very little actual resemblance to the exclusion zone in Ukraine. The damaged reactor is approximately 5km away from the abandoned city of Pripyat and about 15km from the small (still populated) town of Chernobyl. The ambient levels of radiation, although slightly higher than normal, do not warrant the use of HAZMAT suits.
Optimus Prime: [First Lines] We were once a peaceful race of intelligent mechanical beings. But then came the war, between the Autobots that fought for freedom and the Decepticons that dreamt of tyranny. Over matched and outnumbered, our defeat was all but certain. But in the war's final days one Autobot ship escaped the battle, it was carrying a secret cargo which would have changed our planets fate. A desperate mission, our final hope. A hope that vanished.
A scene which hints at what will happen (possibly joking) to former Sector 7 agent Simmons.
