Stunts and fireballs as Transformers shoots at Alnwick Castle

Updated: 

Explosions and Hollywood stars descended on an historic Northumberland town as the set from the new Transformers movie set up in front of Alnwick Castle.

Actor Mark Wahlberg along with director Michael Bay were seen filming Transformers: The Last Knight outside the home of the Duke of Northumberland.

Two explosions were captured by a drone after numerous super cars from the film were seen driving near Kielder Water earlier in the week.

The crew were seen going back and forth along the road from Alnwick Garden to the castle, as the morning fog was slowly burnt off by the sun.

Cranes and lights were set up pointing through the castle windows as filming took place inside as well.

Wahlberg, 45, who also starred in Ted, The Departed and The Fighter, paused for a break in filming to have his make-up done as Bay gave out instructions.

The fifth instalment in the series, which has Steven Spielberg as an executive producer, also filmed in London near Bank Tube station, when a dramatic stunt saw a car hurled onto its side.

The series, directed by Bay, has grossed over £2.79bn ($3.7bn) worldwide.

Stars in the film, which is expected to shoot in other places around the North East, include Sir Anthony Hopkins, Stanley Tucci and Isabela Moner.
