WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 09/05/2013, Cucalorus, American Bible Challenge, Out on DVD

CUCALORUSSTRAIGHT FROM THE MONSTER’S MOUTH!  Cucalorus needs your help! We’re looking to you, our friends and fellow artists, to make a donation to Cucalorus. Your donation will support more than 250 artists who will be presenting new work at the 19th annual Cucalorus Film Festival in November.

Roughly half of your donation will go directly to filmmakers. Each year Cucalorus provides artists with over $35,000 in direct financial support (that’s more than half of all ticket sales!). The remainder of the funding will be used to rent the equipment we need to show movies! It’s really that basic. We hope you’ll help us in our mission to bring people together to celebrate, discover and create independent films. VISIT CUCALORUS KICKSTARTER PAGE

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!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you Tuesday morning (unless something breaks) and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!!

Autographed posters & tickets to Colin Firth flick, Arthur Newman

For all those who worked on Arthur Newman that was shot here in the Wilmington area, you will be pleased to know that Carmike Cinemas (111 Cinema Dr  Wilmington, NC 28403) will be showing the Colin Firth, Emily Blunt flick for a limited time.

The movie runs from Friday, May 3rd to Thursday May 9th.  Showtimes daily are: 12:45pm, 4:10pm, 6:50pm, 9:25pm.


I have not only tickets to see Arthur Newman, but autographed movie posters as well!  Get ready to win starting tomorrow morning on The Sunny Morning Show w/ Sheila Brothers!

About Arthur Newman (Summary written by Becky Johnston) – The movie follows Wallace Avery who really hates his job and his ex-wife and son hate him.  He’s blown his one shot at living his dream. Not wanting to face all this, he stages his own death and buys himself a new identity as Arthur Newman.

However, Arthur’s road trip towards anew life is interrupted by the arrival of the beautiful but fragile Mike, who is also trying to leave her past behind. Drawn to one another, these two damaged souls begin to connect as they break into empty homes and take on the identities of the absent owners: elderly newlyweds, a high-roller and his Russian lady, among others. Through this process, Arthur and Mike discover that what they love most about each other are the identities they left at home, and their real journey, that of healing, begins.

Good luck!  I will be giving away the first pair of movie tickets tomorrow morning at 8:30am during the LIVE “What Up In Wilmywood” segment on Sunny 104.5!  910-790-1045




Happy Monday morning to you!  Not too much to report today, filming wise.  I can tell you that Under the Dome will be on the lot for the day, so no action on the streets today.  Here’s the teaser.  The series premieres on CBS June 24th!

The trailer is out for Arthur Newman, golf pro starring Colin Firth and Emily Blunt.  A story of a man who fakes his own death and assumes a new identity in order to escape his life, who then moves in with a woman who is also trying to leave her past behind.

The flick has a limited release April 26th.

peter jurasikOur own Peter Jurasik is in the film. And that’s not all Peter Jurasik was up to.  You get to see him in the movie, 42, which opened this past weekend and scored the best opening day ever for a baseball flick with $27.2 million.  So, yeah Peter!  We love you!

WECT’s Ashley Kosikowski did a nice story on a couple of LA actors who have moved here and opened an actors school here called the Actor’s Arsenal.

That just about does it for me. I’ll have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every morning (Monday-Friday) at 8:30am.  Until then, that’s a wrap!
