Optimus Prime spotted in Utah’s Monument Valley

There’s been a major celebrity sighting in Utah’s Monument Valley — where this star of money-making movies and popular TV shows is filming his next summer blockbuster.

This Hollywood big wheel is Optimus Prime, the semi-trailer truck leader of the Autobots in the "Transformers" films. And director Michael Bay is shooting part of "Transformers 4" along the Utah-Arizona border.
