We went out for dinner and a show downtown this evening: we ate at the Fairlie-Poplar Tin Drum while watching a film shoot across the street in Woodruff Park. It’s a fight scene for Anchorman 2, complete with a red dune buggy.
Fairlie Poplar gets the Bronx treatment for filming
Another cool photo of this week’s film shoot for Anchorman 2 near Woodruff Park. Two sides of Moe’s (seen here from Poplar and Broad Streets) are given a gritty 80s-NYC look. At least I assume that’s what…
It’s the little heartaches of living in a photogenic area — Fairlie-Poplar has been host to a nearly constant stream of film sets since we moved here.
My wife took this pic today of a period piece (1950s maybe?) filming on Peachtree Street at Woodruff Park. Look at how they’ve changed the store fronts for the shoot — yesterday, that was a Moe’s Southwest Grill at the corner in the center. The next-door hookah shop has become a wine store.
Anyone know what’s filming here? Movie or TV show?
The film based on the fatal 2009 shooting of 22-year-old Oscar Grant by a BART by police officer is heading to the Cannes Film Festival. The film, which up until this week was known as “Fruitvale,” is now titled “Fruitvale Station,” and will compete in the “Un Certain Regard” category.
The “Un Certain Regard” category includes films that present “a certain glance or a particular outlook” at the annual film festival held in Cannes, France every May. Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring,” based on the true story of Los Angeles teenagers who broke into celebrities’ houses to steal clothes and jewelry, will open the category.
“Fruitvale Station” will have a wide release in the U.S. on July 26, 2013. The film was written and directed by 26 year-old USC grad Ryan Coogler and stars Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer, Tristan Wilds and Melonie Diaz.
