Who’s on TV today?

It’s a double Wilmywood Wow on David Letterman! We get to see not only Melissa McCarthy but our Domie Rachelle Lefevre as well!

Meanwhile some more Tammy love will be on Kelly & Michael as Susan Sarandon joins that crazy duo. I wonder if Miss Penny (Susan’s pup) will be there in style?

So, how did Melissa rise to the top as the most fabulous leading lady?

The wait is finally over, Wilmywood! Get ready to see TAMMY one day early! Almost 3000 folks from Wilmington worked hard on this movie, and we think you deserve to catch it BEFORE the release date!

Join us at Regal Cinemas in Mayfaire Town Center on Tuesday July 1st at 8pm! Come early as we will have Tammy’s 1986 Car and jet ski on display in front of Regal Cinemas – Yes the vehicles used in the movie!
We got tickets to give away and just maybe some special prizes too! Listen to Sunny 104.5 for all the details! See you there!! CLICK HERE FOR FB INVITE!


MaxEhrichNow, back to Under the Dome. Happy birthday day to two Domies today! First up is Max Ehrich who is new to the show,. He plays Hunter, the boy who gets into the Dome. Also, big Robo-birthday wishes to Peter Weller who was just here directing episode 10 of Under the Dome.

comics-boom-studios-sleepy-hollowWithout warning or further details, Boom! Studios sent out this Sleepy Hollow comic cover and it’s gone totally viral in the Twittersphere!  Talk about a tease coming out of nowhere! BOOM! has already produced comic adaptations for Planet of the Apes, Die Hard and 28 Days Later via licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox, so why not, right? I’d buy it!

In case you didn’t believe me months ago, Nicholas Sparks was here, but not for his movie he is currently shooting, The Longest Ride. Nope, it’s the one they are shooting in September, The Choice. He went scouting with his producing buddies. Sure hope he stopped by The Longest Ride set at least to say, “Yo, what’s up? Thanks for making my book into a movie again Wilmington!”

zap2it_homeNo summer series has been more highly anticipated than Under the Dome. Based on a bestselling Stephen King novel, executive produced by A-list showrunner Neal Baer and with a cast that includes Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre and Britt Robertson, this is one summer show that isn’t debuting after the official end of the season because of a lack of network confidence. It’s intended to be a big event. So how big do you think its premiere tonight will be? MAKE YOUR PREDICTIONS NOW!

What did you think about the premiere of Under the Dome?  Post your comments below.  Missed Under The Dome last night?  WATCH IT NOW!  The UTD folks are shooting on Shandy Lane today.

Melissa McCarthy was on Kelly and Michael yesterday.  She talked about shooting Tammy with Susan Sarandon and just how irritating she is to work with!  Find out why.  LISTEN TO PODCAST.

A SENSATIONALLY ENTERTAINING OLD-SCHOOL FREAKOUT AND ONE OF THE SMARTEST, MOST VISCERALLY EFFECTIVE”  That’s what Senior Film Critic Justin Chang at Variety is calling The Conjuring that was filmed here in Wilmywood.  Wilmington, NC should be very proud as a ton of local crew and actors worked on this baby!  Read the whole article!  Meanwhile, look forward to seeing it in theaters July 19th.

Mullet Alert:  Danny McBride and his Eastbound and Down crew is back at Jungle Rapids again today.  You can get a glimpse of Danny as well as Steve Little, Katy Mixon and Elizabeth de Razzo.
