WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD
Happy Friday you beautiful peeps! And we’re off! It’s day 1 one for Melissa McCarthy and her hubby Ben Falcone. The Tammy crew is off to Dawson Street today at Two Fat Ladies Restaurant. That should be super fun! Yesterday, I told you there was yet another mega star coming into town today. Well, I can now tell you that star….will be revealed after the break! or at the end of the blog! Ha!
It’s also day one for The Perfect Summer today. It stars Eric Roberts, Sydney Penny, Jason Castro, Adam Horner & Katie Garfield. They will be shooting in Carolina Beach, Wrightsville Beach and downtown Wilmington. The film wraps May 20th.
IM3 is breaking records across the world, first in Italy and now in China with estimated $21.5 million opening. The previous record-holder for biggest opening day was Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, with a $17 million debut. Many wondered why Iron Man 3 opened overseas first. Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis said he wanted to open before the coming May Day holiday on May 1, when many foreign workers and schoolchildren have off. Experts say the US Box Office projections are well over $100 million. Thank you Captain Obvious.
Actor Tony Todd (Candyman, Night of the Living Dead, Final Destination) is hanging out in Wilmington this weekend. You can do some Karaoke with the Candyman at the Browncoat (111 Grace St, 910.341.0001) from 10:30-2am. Admission $20. Includes draft beer, 1 free raffle ticket. He’s also doing a special networking dinner for all those aspiring filmmakers and actors. Call the number above for more details)

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates live at 8:30am Monday morning and every weekday on Sunny 104.5. Until then, that’s a wrap!
