We had a great time on Friday as more than 50 Wilmywood folks headed to Regal Cinemas Mayfaire for the premiere of The Remaining which was shot here last year. We got most of the peeps in the pic! Man, this was PURE Wilmington! It was so great to see so many locations!
We got a double dose of North Carolina. Before the show, it was cool to see the trailer for NC shot Kevin Smith flick, Tusk on the big screen before the movie. The movie was shot in Charlotte and stars Haley Joel Osment, Justin Long and yes, even Johnny Depp is in it, but no he didn’t shoot his scenes in North Carolina 🙂 His daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp is also in the flick playing the character Colleen. The first review just came out. Check it out. And if you haven’t seen the trailer…
Now, where is everyone today?
As the shooting continues for episode 10, characters come home from school and get a rude awakening on Sleepy Hollow today on N. 15th Street…weather permitting. of course. (Two more Mondays until the premiere! Woo Hoo!!)
Secrets and Lies is in hiding today, but they will venture out tomorrow on N. 4th St.
TONIGHT on Under the Dome! When temperatures begin to plunge, Sam and Rebecca spring into action to try to save the residents of Chester’s Mill. Meanwhile, Barbie risks his own life in order to save Julia after a terrible accident on Under The Dome. 10pm on CBS.
