Just last week the cast and crew of Anchorman 2 turned downtown Atlanta in NYC, circa 1977, but this weekend they'll be taking over the real thing.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues will help New York City stay classy tomorrow, Saturday, May 17, as they film scenes throughout Manhattan. Anchorman 2, or Teaching Manheim (the movie's code name) is scheduled to bring a little bit of 70s style to the area around the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park, before shooting scenes at Rockefeller Center.
The Great Gatsby, which hits theaters today, is set on Long Island, NY and was filmed in Australia, but that's not stopping hotels around the country from taking advantage of the movie's release by offering Gatsby-themed packages.
Tampa, FL might not conjure up images of glamor and decadence but the Vinoy Renaissance is hoping to change that with their ritzy Roaring Twenties Experience Package. The deal includes lodging, dinner for two from their 1925 menu, prohibition cocktails, Charleston lessons, and a downtown carriage ride. Rates start at $379 with promo code P51.
Downtown Atlanta could easily pass for Hollywood this week as a parade of stars has been making their way to Woodruff Park for Anchorman 2.
Sacha Baron Cohen, Liam Neeson, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Jim Carrey, Kanye West, Kirsten Dunst, John C. Reilly, and James Marsden have all been spotted filming cameos for the movie, along with the movie's original cast members - Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, and David Koechner - at the park.

Summer's fast approaching, which means it's time for Adam Sandler to plan his next
family vacation goofy summer-themed movie project.
Sandler has spent the past three summers filming Grown Ups, That's My Boy, and Grown Ups 2 in New England with his family and friends. But, this year he's trying something new and bringing the gang (which includes his wife, kids, and some combination of David Spade, Nick Swardson, Milo Ventimiglia, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, Andy Samberg, or Chris Rock) to Sun City, South Africa.
The crazy popular young adult novel Divergent, about a teenage girl named Tris who lives in a dystopian Chicago, is headed to the big screen. And, even though filming has just begun, fans are already buzzing about which Chicago landmarks mentioned in the book will make it into the movie.
On top of the list of potential filming locations (and future, inevitable movie tour stops) is Millennium Park which “used to be a park” in the book, John Hancock Center, a now abandoned building Tris ziplines from, Navy Pier’s Ferris Wheel which Tris climbs at one point, and Michigan Avenue, where the production was already spotted setting up.
This week Lincoln was released on DVD giving cities across Virginia a second chance to lure spring and summer tourists to their new Lincoln Movie Trail.
The trail gives visitors a chance to take a self-guided tour of locations used in the Steven Spielberg movie, including landmarks, hotels, and restaurants in Richmond and Petersburg.
The trail map and location details can be downloaded for free at www.virginia.org/lincoln.

Last week, we dished on Air Pacific's brand new airplane, new look as Fiji Airways, and even mentioned how to test out the fresh bird. Just the thought of Fiji seems exotic, pretty far away, and difficult to get to. Exotic, yes. Far away, sure. Hard to get to, not at all. This week, we'll be looking at what there is to do once you do make it to the way out to the middle of paradise.
This photo is not your typical shot of a tropical South Pacific island. Nopeit was taken from onboard a zippy catamaran trip going from Nadi to Tokoriki, and that island in the distance may be a tropical South Pacific deserted island, but for a time it was the center of Hollywood's universe. It's practically a movie star.
Yep, you heard it right, that island is just as much a celebrity as, say, Tom Hanks. If you think it looks a little familiar that's because it's the actual island from the 2000 box office blockbuster movie, Cast Away.

James Franco's character Alien in Spring Breakers has been described as a guy "out to have a demonic good time," and isn't that what everyone is looking for on spring break?
Even if you're wrapping up this year's trip it's never too early to start planning for 2014, so here a few serious party places featured in the new movie because after all, according to Alien, "Bikinis and big booties, y'all. That's what spring break is all about!"

The protagonist of the new Vegas-set movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone may be a fictional character, but he got plenty of help from the real deal for the film.
Many scenes in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the new Steve Carrell/Jim Carrey movie about an up and coming street magician who makes the more established acts look stale, were filmed on the Las Vegas Strip, including the now famous suspended, see-through box stunt that was filmed above Las Vegas Boulevard outside of Bally’s last year.
Warner Bros. finally released the trailer for The Hangover Part III last week and it sees The Wolfpack return to Las Vegas, get chased through the desert, and end up in Mexico.
But just because the gang winds up in Mexico, doesn't mean they actually filmed there. Most of the Tijuana, Mexico in the movie scenes were actually filming in downtown Nogales, AZ, which was transformed to look like the the U.S./Mexico border.

Hugh Jackman didn't have much time to celebrate his big win for Les Miserables at the Golden Globes last night.
