Dear Movie Lover,
Despicable Me 2: Stealing the Man of Steel's Cryptonite and Running Over The Lone Ranger

In theaters only twelve days, Despicable Me 2 has racked up $235 million at the box office. Since opening in June, Man of Steel has taken in $248 million. We won't even embarrass the Lone Ranger who seems to have been done in by the over-reach of his trusty sidekick Tonto. Rein it in, Johnny Depp!

Is Red2 Red Hot?

Loved LOVED the first Red movie starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich. The movie was popular enough to spawn a sequel.

Red2 reunites most of the original cast along with the addition of the genius Anthony Hopkins and the luscious Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The Hollywood Reporter refers to the actors and the action roles they play with the sage advice; "Never say retire!"

Seducing America: The Sinful Synergy of the CRONUT

The combination of croissant-donut is the Summer's
yummiest meme. But does this decadent creation have the legs of the mighty cupcake?

The Summer of 2013 may be remembered for a number of things, most of them exceedingly unpleasant. Not so the Cronut, the croissant-donut mashup that has taken the world by storm. The result which took two months and 10 receipes to perfect, is a flaky yet unmistakably donut-y product.
After gobbling just one, you don't need another. It's satisfying, complex and totally original!

Star Turn:
Is Hollywood STILL The Center of
The Film-Making Universe? 
Not so much anymore. In fact, the production and distribution of films and tv programs is one of the nation's most valuable cultural and economic resources.

The industry is a major private sector employer from coast to coast, with salaries above the national average. Each year, film and television production activity takes place in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Over the next few weeks, Tune In and Watch will highlight the states that play host to film production and the reasons why film makers choose these locations.

Take North Carolina, for example. In terms of economic impact, the motion picture and television industry is responsible for 8,481 direct jobs and $206.7 in wages, including both production and distribution-related jobs.

Based on the most recently available figures, during the course of 2010-2011, 24 movies and 5 TV series were filmed in the state. Movies include The Hunger Games, Piranha 3D, Journey 2 The Mysterious Island, Hick, Destiny Road The Healer and Witness Insecurity. TV series include Homeland, One Tree Hill, Fantasia For Real, Lizard Lick Towing and Swamp Loggers.

Of course, film makers have a broad choice of North Carolina scenery. The varied locales available for filming range from the mountains in the western part of the state to the big-cities of Charlotte and state capitol of Raleigh and the beaches of the Outer Banks in the east.

There are tempting financial considerations as well. Effective January 2011, North Carolina offers tax incentives such as a refundable tax credit equal to 25% of qualifying in-state production expenses.

Great locations and worthwhile tax considerations make filming in North Carolina
good business indeed.

Next week: filming in New York State doesn't mean Make Mine Manhattan Only.
