I was visiting Boston and driving down nearby Prince St. looking for the Old North Church when I heard all this gunfire. I was wondering what the hell was going on! Turns out it was filming of this movie.ReplyDelete
My favorite fact about this movie is that the "bank" on Salem St is a laundromat in real life. That bank sign was left hanging over the laundromat sign for weeks, which added a nice tinge of surrealism to my weekly laundry runs. I'd hoped they'd give the sign to the laundromat as a souvenir after filming was done, but I never saw it again.ReplyDelete
So while this movie was being filmed I happened to b near fenway when they filmed. Yawkee way was obviously shut down for ambulance scene and I watched the armored truck drive out the door and flip on its roof. Really cool how they achieve this. Everything I mean every inch is thought out perfectly. I remember they were thinking of doing that armored truck scene again. (Which would have meant another day but they didn't because how I watched it flip kinda awkwardly and not perfectly on its roof is how it played out in movie so I know they didn't retake it. I watched it play out from my cousins apt which was right near where Jeremy Renners character got shot in the streets. There was a McDonald's right there his apt was next door.ReplyDelete
