Thanks to to a post by Beachhead in our forums we found this article. It seems MGM is in the need of some extra funds to keep it out of bankruptcy. MGM called their bond holders and requested $170 million to keep it's projects funded through the years end. If the studio goes into bankruptcy it could risk losing some of it's biggest properties, like James Bond and The Hobbit. Lets hope Red Dawn can make it through this. If they do this movie right it gould help the studio out of its financial slump.
I started a gallery just for star sightings. These are some great photos of Chris Hemsworth and Connor Cruise.
Video from Thursday in Pontiac.
Here are a couple nice phots of the Dodge pickup. There as many four different versions of this truck for various scenes and filming methods.
These and some other photos have been added to our Royal Oak galleries.
Received this email today about the writing on the airplane door. (see pic below):
"Re: Your post from the 17th, “those silly chinese” – the writing on the aircraft door in the photo is actually Japanese. Similar to Chinese, they use many similar characters, but this one is clearly Japanese and definitely not mainland Chinese. FWIW.
On the other hand the Chinese banners with the ‘ba-yi’ logo (like the propaganda posters, your Sep 24 post ‘we are here to help’) and the other signage there is decent mainland Chinese. The star logo is very like the logo of the PLA.
Ah the details. Well most likely the writing on the plane door will never be seen close enough on film to make out what it is. On the other hand, could the Chinese be coming over in Japanese planes covertly?
Please discuss in our forums.
Thanks for the info Robert.
Started a gallery for the Royal Oak location. Check it out.
Thanks Karen fro the great photos.
Here is a quick video I shot of the end of the chase scene. I was only able to get so close. I will post some great photos of the chase later tonight that were sent to me.
I've been getting info that the Pontiac location is being set up. Vehicles are being staged and shooting will be on Saginaw St. Hopefully we can start getting some oictures of what going on there soon.
