TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Set: Times Square Braces For Impact (Videos & Pics)
Yesterday, the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was spotted filming in New York's Time Square. The sequences involved lots of debris strewn about the set, with extras instructed to throw themselves to the ground based on an imaginary impact.

Twitter user, Redwingx, has posted photos and a rather interesting account of what took place on the Times Square set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles yesterday.
In any case, I got there just as they were filming what appeared to be a major disaster / explosion / crash / building collapse. While there were no *actual* explosions, there was (fake) wreckage everywhere, (fake) cops everywhere, a (fake) firetruck and crew, and extras were throwing themselves on the ground and pretending to only painfully pull themselves up. In short, it was awesome!!
I love, love, love seeing all the behind-the-scenes stuff so this was just awesome. They'd yell "Rolling!" and the people would all look up and point and then the director would do this countdown, "3-2-1... IMPACT!" and on "Impact!" everyone would run or throw themselves to the ground and cameras would close up on them on the pavement or film them running by. It was controlled chaos.

Also, at the very bottom of this article you will see a newly discovered image of Megan Fox and Will Arnett filming an action sequence for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This most likely took place a month ago because this is the Sands Point Preserve set. Either way, it's new to me, which means it's new to you. Yahoo!
