tf bcplace13_marked

What’s happening with Eddie and Iris? The Flash filmed a scene of Iris West (Candice Patton) meeting up with her boyfriend Central City detective Eddie Thawne (Rick Costnett) near BC Place at suppertime today. Is there trouble in the relationship? Sure looks like it. Happy body language of the actors walking to set is in sharp contrast to their characters. More shots of Eddie and Iris walking through the scene #TheFlash. Looks like trouble for couple @yvrshoots — Pop Goes The World (@Popgoestheworld) March 28, 2015   Now Iris is wearing a black jacket in the actual filmed scenes #TheFlash @yvrshoots — Pop Goes The World (@Popgoestheworld) March 28, 2015    

BIG BUDGET MOVIE: STAR TREK 3 with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg & Co. Expected to Start Filming in Vancouver Mid-June

Star Trek into darkness

Hello Chris Pine, aka Tina Fey’s Who Would You Rather? at this year’s Golden Globes. The Star Trek captain is expected in Vancouver late this Spring along with the Enterprise crew — Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Sulu (John Cho), Chekov (Anton Yeltin) and Scotty (Simon Pegg) — to film the third instalment of J.J. Abrams’s rebooted franchise with the production code Washington.  Production was delayed after director/writer Roberto Orci bowed out.  Justin Lin (who revived the Fast and Furious franchise) will direct. And Simon Pegg is co-writing the script. The Trekmovie site reported last October that Star Trek 3 would film mainly in Vancouver and plans to “rebuild the Enterprise sets from scratch” in studio here. Paramount hopes for [...]

SHOOT: THE FLASH/ARROW Crossover Season Finale Reverse Flash Stunt at BC Place

Can Reverse Flash fly? A cameraman dressed in black films a Reverse Flash stunt double dropping  from the sky by BC Place dressed as S.T.A.R. Laboratories for The Flash/Arrow season finale crossover last night. Reverse Flash stunt double. The stunt performers fell to the wet mats below. Action then moved onto Terry Fox Plaza for the big overnight stunt fight. Reverse Flash vs Flash & Co. This scene contains MAJOR spoilers. Screen Rant has them here. One anecdote I’ll add — it’s fun to see mortal enemies hugging one another in between fight takes at 2:30 a.m. Note: In one of my photos it looked like the stunt performer in black had a bow and arrow but in others it’s clear that he’s holding [...]

START: CONTINUUM’s Fourth & Final Season With Rachel Nichols, Erik Knudsen & Victor Webster Starts Filming in Vancouver

Continuum Fan Art

Jaiden Everett/Tumblr. Vancouver’s own timey-wimey saga Continuum started filming its fourth and final season today somewhere in Point Grey. Remember where we left off? Season three opened with two young-tech-genius Alec Sadlers and two cop-from-the-future Kiera Camerons in a new timeline as Alec travelled back in time to save his girlfriend Emily from death. The season ended with only one Kiera Cameron and one Alec Sadler in the same timeline but with a new threat emerging from an altered future. Uh-oh . How will creator and showrunner Simon Barry wrap it all up in just six episodes? Finding it very very hard to turn this script in. @ContinuumSeries #406 — Simon Barry (@SimonDavisBarry) March 10, 2015 During pre-production, Continuum learned [...]

Does The Flash have fans in Central City like Grant Gustin does in Vancouver? He will. Monday’s scene: The Flash speeds out of a doorway, comes to a halt on the sidewalk and looks around for someone in the crowd of people. Those around him stop and stare and one young woman takes a photo of The Flash with her cell phone. On the corner opposite: Vancouverites stop and stare and take photos of Grant Gustin dressed as The Flash. What a clever writers’ room.

The Flash dotted both sides of the 800 block of West Hastings Street in downtown Vancouver with backgrounders yesterday for an Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett) walk-and-talk — which turns into a brief run as the Central City detective starts chasing a “villain”. Rick Cosnett and the director confer ahead of rolling on the scene. Steadicam. Later on the Scarlett Speedster (Grant Gustin) showed up to film a speed-and-stop among a crowd of backgrounders. How are there no casualties?

Upcoming medical series Proof filmed Dr. Carolyn Tyler (Jennifer Beals) running again. This time on the east side of Victory Square. Spoiler alert: look at the woman she’s chasing. Related: Proof’s Jennifer Beals Runs Down Robson Street Downtown. Produced by Kyra Sedgewick, Proof is a 10-episode supernatural medical drama series for TNT about surgeon Dr. Carolyn Tyler (Jennifer Beals) who’s asked by a dying tech billionaire (Matthew Modine) to investigate cases of reincarnation and hauntings for proof. Despite her own after-death experience she remains Scully-skeptical and reliant on hard science when it comes to answering the question — is there something beyond death? Remember the green scarf? From the pilot: The part has been re-cast and the scene re-shot but this will be the same [...]
