Looking forward to 2014 movies filmed in Chicago!

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

What are the best movie choices for 2014? Why not films shot right here in our city? Good Day Chicago has sneak peek of what to look forward to in the new year.

Let's start out with a title that's not unfamiliar to anyone, "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction," which hits theaters in June.

Chances are, you saw this one being shot around Chicago or might even be an extra in it. Michael Bay returns to the franchise, but no more Shia LaBeouf. He's been replaced by Mark Wahlberg. But most importantly, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee are returning.

"Divergent" could be the new "Hunger Games" after it hits theaters in March. Like the popular dystopian series, this movie is based on a popular young adult novel series of the same name.

The film features futuristic vision of Chicago. In this society, people are divided into factions based on their personality. If it's a success, there will be many more installments to come.

The makers of "The Matrix" were in Chicago last summer shooting their new action flick "Jupiter Ascending," set to release in July, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.

The film focuses on a galactic warrior sent to kill a Russian immigrant who could be the universe's next leader. I feel like that's just like "The Terminator," but maybe that's just me.
