WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 08/30/2013

Another Dome Day is coming. Here’s the preview as we gear up for Monday night:

Christmas in Conway is filming at NHRMC today as one of the characters is treated for injury. Afterwards they head to Greenfield Lake Park at the main playground area.

Sleepy Hollow is back at the Brooklyn Arts Center on N. 4th St. The location was transformed into an abandoned church which is not hard to do. Our heroes will find a clue, but of course some bad guys show up to start the party making some noise. So, if you are close by, you will probably hear some fake gunfire coming from inside the building.

Swirl’s The Dempsey Sisters is shooting off Gordon Rd today.

Sarah Crandall reports that Wilmington recently made a BuzzFeed article’s list of 41 Things You Might Not Know About “One Tree Hill,” highlighting certain parts of Wilmington.

The Cucalorus Film Festival has announced its early selections for 2013.  Here’s the list!

Some more auction items came in for the Sunny 104.5 Caring for Kids at NHRMC Radiothon.  Thanks to Chris Bromley for getting us the swag for Tammy and The Conjuring.  Don’t forget we also have an Under The Dome autographed script, an Arthur Newman poster signed by Colin Firth and Emily Blunt as well as a “Screen Gems Experience” up for grabs.  The auction will begin around September 10th.  As soon as I get concrete details, I will share!

Finally congrats to our Safe Haven man Josh Duhamel as Fergie’s little pea is out of the pod — The Black Eyed Peas singer has given birth to a baby boy named Axl Jack Duhamel.

Buckle up, ’cause I have been told things are gonna get real busy after Labor Day.  Woo Hoo!  Bring it!  Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!

After all the excitement this week in Wilmywood, it had finally settled down into a slow day, but I have a few tidbits to report.

The list of top 10 Summer movies is out from ComingSoon.net and 2 Wilmington flicks made the list.  Coming in at #1 is, of course, Iron Man 3 (Domestic: $408.2 million; Worldwide: $1.2 billion) and #10 was The Conjuring (Domestic: $129.6 million; Worldwide: $194.9 million).  The Conjuring is listed at #7 on the top grossing horror movie at the US box office.

Sleepy Hollow is filming at the Brooklyn Arts Center on N. 4th St. and also doing some driving scenes around downtown.  And in cased you missed, here’s the video from the early screening of Sleepy Hollow at Regal Cinemas at Mayfaire.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 08/28/2013 Sleepy Hollow Premiere, Christmas in Conway and more.

sleepyhollowFirst let me try to articulate because all I keep saying is “Oh my god! Oh my god!” Surely I have more words in my vocabulary. I can tell you that Sleepy Hollow truly was one of the best pilots I have ever seen. The acting was brilliant and the chemistry between Abbie (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod (Tom Mison) was beautiful as was the cinematography and special effects.

In a nutshell, here is my review:

“Sleepy Hollow blends comedy, drama and suspense better than a strawberry milkshake from Baskin-Robbins.”                             ~Sheila Brothers, What’s Up in Wilmywood

And you can quote me on that!  Last night was filled with crazy excitement and Regal Cinemas had a line out the door that was as longer than the Great Wall of China!  People drove from Salisbury, NC where the pilot was shot, and there were many who have worked on the show in later episodes.  Other folks were simply Tom fans, Orlando fans and Wilmington film fans.

Matt Born took some great shots from last night.  Visit his photo gallery now!

Not only did they have some Sleepy Hollow swag, but an inside look of the show and a special guest. Orlando Jones just happened to show up with Ichabod Crane’s wife, Katrina aka Katia Winter. I will post video for you later today!

The only disappointment of the night was there were a ton of people that waited in line for a very long time and didn’t get in because it was oversold, even after Regal opened a second auditorium to accommodate the masses.  But they did give out Sleepy Hollow t-shirts to those who couldn’t get in.  The people who did get the chance to see the pilot, didn’t get that sweet stuff.  All in all, it just proves the show has a major buzz. The television premiere is Monday, September 16th 9pm EST on FOX.

And of course all you Domies were on the edge of your seat waiting to find out who indeed was the 4th hand.  Did you watch it? Under the Dome took first place once again in viewers (10.64m), adults 25-54 (3.4/09) and adults 18-49 (2.4/07).  Our show was up +3% in adults 25-54 (from 3.3/08), even in adults 18-49 and added +280,000 viewers (from 10.36m, +3%) compared to last week.

Apparently Under The Dome is panning out for Amblin Entertainment.  Although Madonna tops Forbes Magazine‘s new list of the top earning celebs.  Steven Spielberg came in second with a $100 million pay check from June 2012-June 2013.
