TAMMY Trailer Out – WATCH IT NOW!

Well, I guess this all worked out.  Post 1200/Giant Culture has lost power with the storm.  We had to move the event to Saturday.  And just as we made that decision, this popped up!  So yay!  I guess we can all see it now.   Plus, this Saturday we will be showing the EXTENDED trailer, a different one than the one on Youtube, so still think it will be fun!

Post1200/Giant Culture will be playing the extended trailer in their screening room beginning Saturday at 6pm every half hour and on Sunday from 11am -2pm.

Tammy was shot here in Wilmywood last summer and stars Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, Gary Cole, Dan Aykroyd, Allison Janneyand the rest of the crew.

ABOUT TAMMY: Tammy, who was recently fired from a Toppy Jacks fast food restaurant, returns home only to find her husband enjoying a romantic meal with the neighbor. She quickly packs her necessities, and travels down three houses to her parent’s home. Upon denied use of her mom’s car to drive to Niagara Falls, she quickly resorts to an “ailing” grandmother, who also lives in the home…Only instead of traveling alone, Grandma Pearl wants in on the road trip. After realizing Grandma Pearl has the funds, they hit the road. Pearl soon proves to be quite the alcoholic despite her diabetes, and Tammy quickly turns into the “baby-sitter.” From finding love in a bar to robbing a Toppy Jack’s in order to bail Pearl out of jail,the quirky adventure will have you finding yourself riding along for the misadventures of Tammy.  Source: IMDb

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/30/2014 Director Named for Secrets & Lies, Max Steel, NC Oscar Nom Revoked and More.

secretsLiesABC’s Secrets and Lies has named their director.  It looks like Charles McDougall will be directing the pilot episode.  If you don’t know the name, you’ve definitely has seen his work at some point.  His credits span every network from primetime to premium including The Office, House of Cards, Sex and The City, as well as the pilot episode of the new show Resurrection, which is also from ABC, shooting in Atlanta. And here’s a little fun connection.  Our love Kevin Sizemore from Season One of Under the Dome will be playing Gary Humphrey in at least five episodes.  The Aussie turned US television series begins production in Wilmywood, February 21st.

Max-SteelNow moving on to Mattel, we knew that Max Steel has been pushed back, but now we have a bit of a clearer picture.  It’s looks like production will begins in March.  No casting details have been released as of yet.  I will keep you posted on those details.
oscarrevokedPeople Magazine came out with an article that put the number of NC Film Oscar Noms back to two again.  We have of course Iron Man 3 (VSX) as well as Bad Grandpa(Hair/Makeup) up for the golden statue.  The third Oscar nod went to Bruce Broughton, who was nominated for writing the music for Alone Yet Not Alone that filmed in Transylvania County here in North Carolina.  Bruce had his Best Original Song nomination taken away by the Academy yesterday.  Why? People went on to say:
“Broughton, who is a former member of the Academy’s Board of Governors and a current member of the Music Branch executive committee, emailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission.”  
Apparently that is a HUGE No-No. Do you think he deserved to lose the Oscar Nom?  Post your thoughts below!  READ ARTICLE NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/08/2014 TV Guide Cover, Bad Grandpa Deleted Scenes, Hank and Jed, PCAs and Much More!

TV GUIDE

Howdy! Another freezing morning, but we got lots to chat about that will make us all warm and fuzzy, much like my brain before coffee.  Let’s start off with our adorable dynamic duo Ichabod and Abbie of Sleepy Hollow!  Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison look fabulous on the cover of TV Guide, don’t you think?  And let me just add how much I LOVE the opening to this TV Guide article by Aubry D’Arminio.

“The end is nigh for Sleepy Hollow‘s first season. And it looks extremely…busy. It’s a stinging-cold December morning at Wilmington, North Carolina’s EUE/Screen Gems Studios. In the nearby woods, a stuntwoman wearing a low-cut, corseted frock is being pulled through the air on a thick cord and dropped nose-first onto a safety mat. “Can she be yanked even harder?” director Ken Olin (thirtysomething) asks the crew member at the other end of the rope. Yes, she certainly can.”

Wilmington.  North Carolina.  EUE/Screen Gems.  Crew – So many of my favorite buzz words in the opening paragraph!

READ TV GUIDE’S “Inside Sleepy Hollow’s Shocking Season Finale”

“Sleepy Hollow collects the most tweets per minute of any current Fox show and is the second most popular new series on social media after The Originals, with nearly 1 million fans across Facebook and Twitter alone.”

under-the-dome-cbsNew characters are coming to Chester’s Mill.  from TVLine.com reports not one, not two, but three.   He says Season 2 will introduce three new characters, including:

Sam: a gruff kinda guy who lives in the woods.  The locals call him a “crazy drunk” which to me translates he will have answers to some dilemmas this season.  He is a relative or was once someone close to one of the characters we know well, but they aren’t saying who.

Rebecca: a 30 something teacher.  Big Jim wants her to get a Dome school going, but of course his motivation isn’t higher education.

A “new girl” in town: A very vague and ageless description, but we know that she is “in to” Joe and Norrie, so we can assume she’s a teen.

MTV is so kind.  Now that the North Carolina shot Bad Grandpa is officially available for digital download, they gave us a bonus!  Here’s an exclusive look at one of the film’s many deleted scenes.  A gem, MTV says,  that’s as good as the pranks that made the final cut.  “Bad Grandpa” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 28.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/17/2013 – NC Film Critic’s Choice Nominees, Sleepy Hollow Misnomer, PCA’s and more.

sleepy-hollow1

Goooood Mornin’ Wilmywood!  Let’s kick off the blog this morning with a Sleepy Hollow concern from one of the entertainment bloggers out there in the world.  HW Hill was a little confused about Sleepy Hollow missing an episode, saying, “I guess it didn’t get a full episode order, or it was just meant to be that short.”

No worries, HWHills!  I got your back.  My sources over at Fox set the record straight.

“Fox decided to air them differently.  The Season One order is 13.  It’s always been 13 and they are shooting 13.  We just decided to combine episode 12 and 13 into a 2-hour finale.  In fact, the finale is gonna be epic.  It’s gonna be huge.”

Episode 11 will air January 13th, 2014, 9pm EST and the big finale (Episode 12/13 combo) will air Monday, January 20th beginning at 8pm EST on Fox!

QUESTION: What’s the difference between North Carolina’s Film Incentives and Georgia’s?  ANSWER.

QUESTION:  Everyone is talking about a sunset when it comes to the film incentives.  What exactly is a “sunset?” ANSWER.

QUESTION: So why does North Carolina need film incentives anyway? ANSWER.

QUESTION:  What film incentives do the other states offer?  ANSWER.

QUESTION: Do the tax payers pay for police officers and fireman when used on a movie set?  ANSWER.
