Where is everyone shooting today?  Well, weather permitting, possibly.  Most are indoor scenes, so should be good to go.  Under the Dome will be on the lot today.  Tammy is back at Two Fat Ladies on Dawson St. this evening.  The Perfect Summer will be downtown today.

dan_aykroydThe Stars were out Saturday night in downtown Wilmington.  It started off with the big kick off party for Tammy was over the weekend at the Blue PostMelissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Allison Janney and of course Dan Aykroyd with his gorgeous wife, Donna Dixon (Sonny Lumet, Bosom Buddies) were in attandence.  Later, some beautiful bartenders met the Blues Brother at Bourbon Street on Front St.

Those weren’t the only stars out, however.  Many got the chance to hang out and do some karaoke with the Candyman himself, Tony Todd at the Browncoat.  And Nutt St.  had a plethora of stars of comedy for the Cape Fear Comedy Festival.  The headliner was Sean Patton.

eric-RobertsIt’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.
