Sure, a red carpet on Hollywood Blvd. is cool but you know what’s cooler? A red carpet in the middle of the river in Downtown Chicago!

Chicago is gearing up for today’s star-studded premiere of “Transformers: The Last Knight.”

Director Michael Bay is set to walk the floating red carpet along with Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins.

The red carpet is being set up on a barge on the Chicago River, right behind the Lyric Opera’s Civic Opera House, where the movie will premiere.

No street closures are expected.

The fifth installment had parts of the film shot in Chicago, which is why they are choosing to do the US premiere here.

The world premiere took place in London on Sunday.


B96’s Showbiz Shelly will be attending – which stars will she rub elbows with?
