Transformers Dark of the MoonDirector Michael Bay destroyed 532 cars during the filming of his latest "Transformers" blockbuster, all of which were donated to the movie after suffering flood damage.
The robot franchise features many scenes of destruction and Bay has revealed he is supplied with hundreds of faulty cars which are rescued from the crusher to be blown to bits on his film set instead.
He tells Reuters, "These are cars that are flood damaged. Car companies give them to us because by law they have to be crushed, so I am the perfect guy to do that."
Transformers: Dark of the Moon premiered in Moscow, Russia on Thursday.
