  1. Arthur is filming in New York on Monday 2nd of August and Tuesday 3rd of August around Vanderbilt Ave and Madison Ave. Saw the signs put up by Warner Bros near Grand Central.

  2. White Label is the production company. The shoot is a print ad that they’re filming the shoot of. It is featuring a Dutch model who’s name no one seemed to know.

    (Thanks Michael)

  3. Does anybody know where SVU is filming August 9th and 10th? I know it is a little early but I thought I would ask anyways!!

  4. Does anyone happen to know whether Sunday’s Premium Rush shoot is first unit and if Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be around? I saw the signs posted on 108th St between Amsterdam and Broadway today, but didn’t get a good look at what time they’re starting? Thanks! Love this website.

  5. via @xjjeepgrl:

    @olv ‘my last day without you’ filming aug5/6 on Fulton st btwn classon and grand in BK

    Anyone know what this is?

  6. It’s a movie about a German guy who comes to town, meets a lady and she shows him”her Brooklyn”. I looked it up on imdb. Sounds a bit lame. No one I know of is in it. Anyway. They are filming a block from my house. We never seem to get any good movies filming around here.

  7. The signs for Premium Rush on 108th between Amsterdam and Broadway have filming times 5am – 9pm on them, no idea if it’s the first or second unit though.

  8. Pass by the Transformers three set this evening after they stopped filming for the day. Pretty kewl set with burnt out cars and rubble. Sis past by earlier and actors were on set dressed as soldiers filming scene figured Shia LaBuf had to be one of the shorter soldiers wasn’t sure which one was Josh Demaul. Set is pretty much spread around and base camp is away from the set. Filming same spot tomorrow police are keeping traffic out and serurity is keeping eye on set.

  9. Premium Rush signs ALL over the city-I have never seen a movie with so many signs. Yet, I haven’t seen them filming at all-just cones blocking cars from parking

  10. why does this headline say NYC but the copy says CA? Is this premiere in NYC or Calif?

    Takers premiere in NYC

    Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, et al.)

    at the Arclight/Cinerama Dome

  11. Regarding Premium Rush: Dania Ramirez is filming today, so I would take that to mean that JGL is also filming. Could be wrong though. Good luck to those that try!!

    • I don’t sorry :/ I’ll keep an eye out though and see what I can find out. I run a JGL twitter ,so sometimes people give me info 🙂

  12. I just took a walk around Broadway & 108th to see if I could spot JGL… tons of trailers, tents and camera equipment are around the area, but I couldn’t tell if they were on lunch break or if they had gotten rained out. Everything had plastic tarps over it, and the crew was just hanging out on the trucks.

  13. got this tip but not sure if it is move cars sun, film Mon, seem unusual they would film on a sun:
    Signs for “the good wife” seen on 7th ave between 18th and 17th streets. Filming tomorrow aug 1
