THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 10/28/2013 – UTD, Sleepy Hollow, Hank and Jed

Bad_Grandpa_USAnother NC Film success! Our North Carolina shot Jackass comedy, Bad Grandpa took the #1 spot at the box office raking in a sweet $32 million.

Another Monday comes with NO Sleepy Hollow.  It is truly grueling.  But I guess it’s nice to know everything will be right as rain in 7 days time.  When we return we will meet the Sin Eater ft. John Noble!

But we need to get used to inconsistencies because the season finale will not be at its regular time either. FOX announced the date for the finale which will be on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.

cowThe UTD cast and crew enjoyed the weekend across the pond at the London Comic Con. Most of the cast are still there enjoying themselves. Missing Under the Dome?  How about reliving some bits.  Just in time for Halloween, here are UTD’s 13 creepiest moments.

Our local boys from Hank and Jed Movie Pictures (creators of Battlefield Friends) will be at Game Stop in Monkey Junction in Wilmington, NC tonight to help celebrate the release of Battlefield 4.  Plus they are giving away an autographed DICE/BF4 T-shirt while they are there.  The Prod Co was contracted by EA Games to do a “briefing” about BF4.  Check it out.

They will also be doing to LIVE radio interviews today taking phone calls from fans of the show.  Modern Rock 98.7 (1pm EST) and Z1075 (1:30pm EST).  You can listen live, just click on the radio station web sites.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/22/2013 Another movie coming to Wilmywood?

Rumorslogo

RUMORS FROM THE LOT!

Happy Tuesday!  Let’s kick it off with “Rumors from the Lot.”  Another movie could be coming to Wilmywood.  It’s an independent flick with a big heart. It’s called Fragile, a true story about high school football team embracing a mentally challenged boy, and could be in production before the holidays.   It’s a small project (under $5 million) and from what I understand is funded by folks in NC.  I think it will be a project that everyone will want to be a part of. So to sum it up, the movie is a fact, whether it comes here is still bookmarked as rumor, at least for now.  I will keep you posted.

mtvMTV is casting a new show!  Do you live in a real-life Modern Family?

Are your parents and siblings the anti-1950s nuclear family? Do you have same-sex parents? An internationally-adopted cousin? A hot, young new step-mom or dad? Is your clan multi-generational, multi-cultural, and multiplying? Perhaps your brood is made up of a recently blended family or an ever-expanding and hilarious, random group. If your family is fun, dynamic, diverse, and the new normal, MTV would love to hear from you!  If you appear between the ages of 16 and 25 and believe your household is totally modern,  please email mymodernfamily@mtv.com.  Don’t forget to include your name, phone number, email and a photo of your family!

James-FrainWhen Sleepy Hollow comes back on November 4th following its baseball break,  James Frain  will put in his first appearance, and it looks as though Stretch Armstrong aka John Cho —will have his return.

The Sleepy folks head to The Graystone Inn, on S. 3rd St.  this evening.  There will be one of the horses at this location, but I cannot tell you if it will be Zach.  That’s Headless’s horse.  Also, it looks like we will see James Frain on set today. Another reported location for the day is the Cape Fear Club on Chestnut.

Well Wishes, a little film out of Raleigh, will be taking up space on the 100 block of Water St. until Noon today.  The characters will be spreading the wealth by filling parking meters.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/14/2013 Sleepy Hollow awakens the fans at NYCC

First HUGE numbers are in for Sleepy Hollow.  During the premiere week  of the 2013-2014 season (September 23-29), Sleepy Hollow topped the % adults 18-49 ratings increase from DVR viewing, adding 70% to its Live+Same Day adults 18-49 ratings.  Holy crap!  Amazing!  READ ALL ABOUT IT NOW!

With numbers like that you can understand why the Sleepy Hollow panel was the must attend event at the New York Comic Con yesterday. Panels ran throughout the con, but no one had a panel or an autograph line quite like Sleepy Hollow.  Co-Creator of the show, Phillip Iscove captured the moment. Wow!  That line is insane!  Thanks for the pic Phillip! Liz P. who runs the @TomMisonFans twitter account, was in attendance for none other than Sleepy Hollow.

I asked Liz to share her experience at this year’s con. “The highlights for me were mostly about Tom (of course).  The question was asked about how to play the comedic moments that he does so well — he said that he has to repress “the flouncing tart” in him that wants to ham it up.  It got a great laugh, especially when someone added that everyone in the audience was probably now googling “flouncing tart.”

@TomMisonFans @WilmywoodNC It was a HUGE room. Person Of Interest didn’t fill it, and The Following barely did, but mostly cuz everyone was there for SH!

“Also I loved when people asked (a couple of times, I think), about “Ichabbie,” and he kept reminding them that he had a wife who was a witch, who probably wouldn’t appreciate him taking up with another woman.  They showed a rough cut of some new scenes, which were pretty amazing — lovely moments between Ichabod and Abbie, then some pretty crazy stuff happens.  The footage will be part of the November 4th episode, I think, which airs after a break for the World Series.  Not sure how I’m going to make it through that break, to be honest!!”

Yes, Liz, I think we can all relate!  Within that exclusive footage shown at NYCC was the two main women in Ichabod’s life will have to team up to try and save him from a new evil after he gets abducted. We learn that Katrina can also visit Abbie.  Katrina warns Abbie that the Headless Horseman is returning to Sleepy Hollow that night and only Ichabod can stop him.

So what was one of Liz’s favorite moments during Comin Con?  “Singing happy birthday to Katia,” she said.  “I wish we had heard a little more from Orlando, but we ran out of time.  He did get to talk a little about his really savvy use of social media – but would have loved to hear more about it and about his Capt. Irving.”

My other correspondent was Bryce Finchem.  He said more info was revealed about John Noble (Fringe).  We now know according to Alex Kurtzman & Len Wiseman, he will be playing a Sin-eater, a person/entity which will be crucial to Ichabod’s existence.

Couldn’t make it to the con?  No worries check out the panel discussion NOW!

Looking four episodes ahead, writer Jose Molina mentioned that they are working on Episode 9 and he shared a little tease about what’s to come. “If today’s writing session is any indicator, episode 1.09 is gonna be a 5-hankie event!”  Oh boy!

With all that being said, let’s focus on tonight’s episode (9pm EST, FOX) written by Melissa Blake. Here’s a sneak peek:

The Sleepy Folks shoot at Smith Creek Park today!

Fox’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Gets Big DVR boost beating out Under the Dome

sleepy

Wilmywood can celebrate some more!  We already knew that Sleepy Hollow killed it in the ratings, but after factoring in the DVR numbers, it went through the roof!  And even bettered Wilmywood’s other hit show, Under the Dome!

According to Deadline:

The September 16th debut episode jumped 43% in Live + 3 ratings, nabbing a 5.0 rating & 13.2 million viewers compared with the Live + Same Day numbers which were a 3.5 rating & 10.1 million viewers. That makes it the best debut for a Fox fall drama series since the launch of “24” (5.4/13) all the way back in November 2001.

That’s the largest L+3 audience movement of any new series debut last season and bests Under The Dome’s 3.2 million gain. With the other Big 3 set to unleash their new dramas next week, all we can say is “let the games begin.”

The jump of 1.5 ratings points is also the biggest new series L+3 jump this year – more than “Revolution” (1.4), “The Following” (1.1)  as well.

 

“Fringe” star John Noble joins the Headless Cast.

Wilmywood welcomes Aussie actor, John Noble, as he joins his Fringe creators, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, for a major recurring role in Sleepy Hollow.

Noble will play Henry Parrish, a kind and reclusive man who possesses supernatural powers that have the potential to help Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison).  He’s gonna need it.  If you remember a few days ago, we reported James Frain’s entrance to the show playing the character Rutledge, an Oxford Professor, who holds secrets that could cause problems that could affect Crane’s mission.

Sleepy Hollow kicked some ratings booty Monday with 10.1 million viewers and is officially the network’s most viewed fall drama debut in seven years.
