If you have any set pics, new, filming locations, or celeb sightings to share, let us know about it!


  1. Can you clarify which Residence Inn NCIS: LA is filming at? There’s two in Long Beach when I google it and they’re not terribly close in proximity.

  2. ? about Premium Rush:

    “Signs also spotted on 55th/56th and Broadway/ 7th Ave, 7th Ave and Ave A”, really means Avenue of the Americas better known as 6th Ave, right? There is no Avenue A that high up.

    Hopefully today is the day that I can get down to FWB! 😀

  3. Has anyone in Michigan found anything for Machine Gun Preacher, I can’t believe we’ve lost track of Gerard!
    Tomorrow they are def. filming in an airport- the casting call is as follows:
    July 23 – Airport Travelers (kids and adults)

    • One more note on that, there was a lot of chatter yesterday about them being in Pontiac, and now I see some other sites have picked that up and are reporting it, but one of our readers drove all over Pontiac yesterday and saw no signs of them( though we know they were there on Tues for sure) so they may be done in Pontiac, if anyone knows differently, let us know, thanks!

      • James- someone sent me those in a tweet, I added a link in yesterday’s post to exactly what they sent & tomorrow’s is the last one…
        I’m guessing they are filming at the airport in Detroit, don’t you think?

  4. Has anyone seen Joseph-Gordon Levitt out filmin yet? i work right next to where they are filming just wondering if anyone has spotted them out yet.. i saw trucks all over 52nd and madison/park. Some guy said theyre filming ariund there

  5. The Moneyball location on old depot rd is just basecamp. I followed one of the crew car and they ended up in San Fernando. It’s off the 118. Crossstreets are Paxon and Bradley. They are inbetween paxon and lowere. 11164 Bradley ave. Is the general location.

  6. Update. There are MB signs in the Lowes parking lot at the location I gave above. The address I gave is located in an alley. It’s right behind lowes.

  7. Does anyone know if Blake Lively is for good wrapped on The Green Lantern or is she expected to return to New Orleans to finished filming anytime soon?

  8. Checked most of Pontiac today for MGP and couldn’t find any signs of it anywhere. I know when Clooney was in town for Up in the Air, they didn’t use much of an Airport at all, so don’t assume that tomorrow is at Metro Airport. When they did Up in The Air, they converted a building in Ann Arbor to look like an airport (Just food for thought).

    • They did use part of the airport for ‘Up In The Air’, they did build a set too which is typical, but that was for a long shoot, I doubt they would build a set for one day for MGP.
      I write for another travel publication and wrote several stories about the airport because it is purposely trying to become more filmmaker friendly. Here’s part of an article I wrote last year:
      ” To accommodate potential movie projects, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport has two completely new terminals, McNamara and North, that are open to filmmakers and two others that are no longer in use but can still be used for filming, Smith and Berry.”
      I’m not saying they will def. be at that airport, just adding my own food for thought I guess. 🙂

  9. hey guys,
    does anyone know who is going to be at silvercup studios tomorrow for gossip girl. such as chace or ed or leighton, blake, or penn? Thanks so much

  10. Finally was able to go down to Friends With Benefits today. Yeah! 😀 Saw JT, MK and Bryan Greenberg. Will send you the pics Christine.

    Thanks for the location info!!

    Btw, (sorry to any who visit here and are actually nice but) paparazzi really are some nasty and crude people. Now I know why so many stars don’t like them.

  11. This is just an FYI:
    There are some sites that take our info but don’t bother to follow comments to get updates so if you’re getting info somewhere else, its not a bad idea to check here too (I don’t just want traffic, actually trying to look out :))
    Saw a site that had a whole separate fancy post about the Moneyball location (lifted from us for sure) but they never got the update with the actual location in the comments above.
    I even noticed it with Pulse JFK, they tweeted out some of our info but then I had a correction and they never corrected the info (at least they do link to OLV)
    Its inevitable that people are going to take our info, whatever, but I just wish they’d bother following up with corrections! 🙂
