  1. The Avengers: Heard they are filming for 3 weeks this July in NYC.

    Spiderman Harlem Shoot: Some minor day shots will occur, but the majority of filming is nights as you already posted.

    Extremely Loud: Sandra has completely finished. Not sure if this was already posted.

    • thanks for the updates, we had heard Sandra wrapped, we saw John Goodman was in town for Damages last week, I’m wondering if he’ll be doing his scenes soon…

  2. FYI: Boss was filming at 21st & Hoyne on Wed/Thurs but had moved to the Navy Pier on Friday so we’re assuming they will be at a different location in Chicago today, if you spot them (at these locations or a new one), let us know, thanks!

    Also, Lay The Favorite wrapped in Las Vegas on Sunday, they will move to NOLA on May 11.

    Check back in the morning for updates, thanks!

  3. Just a note of caution for people (especially women) who plan to visit the nighttime Spiderman set. That area is not well populated and can be dangerous. There are some restaurants and a Fairway down there though so try and go when those are open.

  4. Boss has their trailers set up on Wabash Ave, between Harrison and Balbo. I didn’t see where they were set up to actually shoot. Security guard was nice enough when I asked him what was shooting.
