And then did it in spring clothing in take after take, both looking like leggy fashion models. After talking a bit by Wanda, Anastasia kisses Christian on the cheek and walks around to get in her car and drive away. Jamie Dorman kept moving inside the lobby of Bentall 5, pacing back [...]

You never know what the big spoilers will be on Once Upon a Time. Tonight’s episode title The New Neverland suggested the big secret was how many Neverland characters would return to Storybrooke with the Jolly Roger gang and rescued Henry.

Fifty Shades of Grey crew dressed downtown Vancouver’s Bentall 5 tower today as Grey House. for filming on Sunday. We can expect to see at least one exterior scene of Seattle billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) in spring judging from all the trees unloaded on set to hide the bare branches. Not much can be done about the bitter cold though. Hopefully there will be no long takes and crew will have warm coats standing by for cast and blankets for any backgrounders on set. Fake leaves clipped to bare branches outside the Cactus Club. Potted trees unloaded. Hope they survive the night.
Once Upon a Time filmed at the Fort Langley Community Hall as the Storybrooke Town Hall yesterday for the first time in season three. Fans spotted an almost full cast either in exterior scenes or coming and going from interior scenes in the daylight. The night shoot was much smaller with only a #SwanQueen scene of Henry’s two mothers Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) talking in her yellow VW bug. Several visiting #EvilRegals fans watched from the sidewalk closest to the shoot but I left before the wrap so don’t know if Lana Parrilla had a chance to meet them on such a bitterly cold night. A backup yellow VW bug sat parked around the corner on Glover Road. Jennifer Morrison wraps herself in a warm [...]

Fifty Shades of Grey crew added palm trees to the lawn of The Fish House in Stanley Park today to film scenes inside with cast and dozens of extras. Originally built as a Sports Pavilion in 1930 for tennis players and golfers in the park, the building would not look out of place in the Caribbean. It’s been known as The Fish House in Stanley Park since 1990 .
You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and… blow. That’s a famous line from the Bogie/Bacall film classic To Have and Have Not. One that wouldn’t be out of place in Brent Butt’s new movie No Clue, a comedic homage to film noir with Butt as a bumbler who pretends to be a hard-boiled detective so that Amy Smart’s blonde bombshell will spend time with him. No Clue took about three years to get into production in Vancouver and filmed here last fall. So it’s big. It’s local. And it will be funny. Brent Butt (Corner Gas/Hiccups) wrote the script, his production company Sparrow Media produced it and Vancouver’s own Carl Bessai (Sisters & Brothers/Fathers & Sons) directed it in some recognizable locations from Stanley [...]
