Thanks to Lauren for sharing this photo she took with Mark Wahlberg on the set of Ted in Boston!


  1. Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer, is filming in Chicago, if you spot them, let us know!

    Just saw them outside my work on the corner of Michigan Ave and Wacker Dr. Currently filming on the bridge crossing the river at 9:15 am

  2. More Fiona’s Tales signs spotted:
    In Hell’s Kitchen all day today. Streets have been blocked off from 57th-49th street between 9th and 10th ave all for “Fiona’s Tale” which we all know is Spidey.

    And at the Skyline Hotel

  3. Here’s a possible explanation for the Empire State Building colors:
    @olv They’re filming part of the Macy’s 4th of July Spectacular tonight (w/Brad Paisley), that’s probably why the ESB will be red/white/blue

  4. More IB 3 locations for today & Thursday too:
    @olv MIB3 takes over Bklyn!! Court St in the heights today; Court St in cobble hill/carrol gardens thursday. #tonsoftrucks

  5. Finally, someone saw this on Facebook this morning and forwarded it to me, he’s currently filming in UK and I couldn’t find anything else but thought I’d put out there just in case:

    “Johnny Depp filming opposite where I work! Think I might be having a picnic for lunch later!”

    • There might be something going on at the Ziegfeld tomorrow too. I see that they have changed the showtimes for tomorrow also. There is only one showing of Pirates at 10:15pm now, so there may be something there a little earlier in the day.

  6. via @MichStarChaser: @olv 5YE has moved from Glendaloch, not sure where. Base camp is quite, but equip. still there. Must be out of Ann Arbor.

    Any ideas where Five Year Engagement moved to?

  7. Spiderman in Chinatown: Tiny story in today’s NY Post said they were trying to film on Market St yesterday and the FDNY had to rescue crew members stuck in a bucket high up for 3 hours. Guessing that Second Unit may be doing 2 shots a day….with company moves of course.

  8. Does anyone know when or where the red carpet premiere of X-Men: First Class will be? I heard it maybe in New York.

  9. here are a few stories about Ted, Odd Thomas, & filming in NYC that I was going to pop into a “film wrap up post” but I already have so many stories pending I figured I’d add them here…they’re kind of interesting…



  10. More updates via Twitter:
    –Boss wrapped at the old Chicago Motor Club building

  11. X-Men premiere is scheduled for 06.03. January Jones will be walking the red carpet, not sure about the rest of the cast .

  12. Here’s one more Spidey update:
    @olv lots of trailers/gear for Spiderman on 49-50 at 10th ave, heard they’re doing rooftops/cgi stuff, no actors likely

  13. Per Ted filming today/tonight at Fenway Park, all of Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, and Mila Kunis were on set. Should be same for Wed as well.
