This kind of came in under the radar. Back in January a member of Director Michael Bay's Shoot for the Edit forums by the name of EastwoodClinton mentioned an AKP article that stated Transformers DOTM would be filming in Cambodia in February. Cambodia's Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith even stated via facebook that he had given the "green light" for filming in the second week of February. Since then there's basically been no information regarding the rumored filming in Cambodia until this video was discovered on YouTube. The video shows a film crew at Cambodia's Angkor Wat Temple. The video is labeled "Transformer 3 - Dark side of the moon - took shot in Cambodia" and you can hear one of the onlookers mention "Transformers 3". None of the cast or vehicles are seen in the video, the only real action is a boom crane navigating over the complex. The YouTube member who posted the video commented that they filmed there all day. The AKP article mentioned earlier states they would also be filming at Bokor Hill Station in southern Cambodia.
The video is embedded below. Feel free to speculate away in the Energon Pub.

I'll go out on a limb and guess the scene will just be part of a brief montage showing 'The-Ominous-Shadow-Of-The-Big-Bad' falling over landmarks around the world. Nothing against those particular ruins, but they're nowhere near as iconic as the pyramids, so I can't see them gettin' blowed-up for emotional impact.

Seeing as they're filming nothing, looks like a breif shot of some TFs flying, walking around, blowing stuff up, or some kind of taking over the world montage, like the "Decepticons mobilize" type thing. Probably nothing too important. Or, maybe something HUGELY important, and that's why we hardly knew about it

Could it be that Shockwave or Sentinel landed there?
Or Megatron hiding and healing his wounds?
(Nah, it's stupid. Never mind)
