The answer to the question is 9/30/11. That’s the day when the Boston-filmed flick What’s Your Number? comes to theaters. After initially being slated for release this past April, studios reconsidered their release date, and pushed it back to an early fall debut. The movie, which filmed in Boston from May through July of last year (2010), stars Anna Faris, Chris Evans, Andy Samberg, and Joel McHale.
The trailer, which was just released earlier this month, highlights many of the Boston locales that were used as backdrops for the romantic comedy based on the book of the same name by Karyn Bosnak. Even in their brief flashes, those familiar with Boston will recognize the North End, Boston Harbor, Post Office Square Park, Boylston Street, Beacon Hill, the Omni Parker Hotel, and the Boston Public Library.
In addition to taking advantage of the Massachusetts tax credits, What’s Your Number? also makes no qualms about the fact it shot in Boston, unlike prior films like The Women and Bride Wars, which each pretended Boston was New York city for those scenes that they shot in Beantown. What’s Your Number? fully embraced its backdrop, and the movie will display the city in its fully glory, including the hundreds of local people that were used as extras.
Andy Samberg, one of the film’s costars, has been making the rounds lately with the release of his musical comedy album as part of the Lonely Island trio, including co-starring in a now-viral music video with Connecticut born Michael Bolton on “Saturday Night Live”, will be returning to the Boston area soon to film I Hate You Dad with Adam Sandler and Leighton Meester. The film has already held casting calls for extras in anticipation of filming around Boston and the Cape next month.
Check out the trailer for What’s Your Number? here:
June is sure to be a star-studded month in Boston. New Hampshire native, Adam Sandler is due back in town this summer to shoot his latest comedy, I Hate You, Dad.
The Boston Herald reported location scouts were in town last month checking out possible Boston shoot locations at the W Hotel and a State Street law firm. Sandler’s 2010 comedy Grown Ups was shot throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire two years ago.
I Hate You, Dad is about the chaos that ensues after a father (Sandler) moves in with his son and clashes with his son’s fiancee. ”Saturday Night Live” funny man Andy Samberg is set to star as Sandler’s son and “Gossip Girl” Leighton Meester has signed on as his fiancee. In a surprising twist, 90′s rap star Vanilla Ice (real name, Robert Van Winkle) has been cast as the couple’s wedding planner, according to the Boston Globe. As if I Hate You, Dad didn’t hold enough star power, Hollywood legend James Caan has also been cast in the flick.
Fall is in full swing and as we bid our natural tans goodbye, fashionistas can take solace from the disappearance of summer heat with the heralding of a new seasonal era: fall fashion.
This season, it’s been all about hardcore, androgynous blacks, the iridescent, delicate metallics and the theatrical, antiquated vintage. Whether worn alone or paired together, hardcore meets antique with this season’s bold designs, ensuring a confident look for every woman.
Do shiny things intrigue you? Work glittery metallics this fall with this sequined top or this sparkly solace pencil skirt, both from Guess by Marciano. Pair each piece with non-shiny items to avoid looking like a disco ball but, if you’re particularly daring, try mixing and matching colored sequins like Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester for a bedazzling look.
If your taste is a little more classic, work the vintage look with bold antique patterns in anything from teeny mini skirts to over-stated outer wear. Follow the fashion lead of Jessica Szohr (another Gossip Girl star) with this lace baby doll dress from Necessary Objects and use a little vintage to update your wardrobe.
If frills and shine are not your deal and you’d rather sport a pair of Doc Marten’s than stilettos, this fall is the season for you. Leather, spikes and studs have been making an updated comeback with innovative cuts and detailing that make even those with the hardest core go soft. Whether you play it up by working masculine cuts or soften the look by pairing it with dainty details, rock star chic can fit into anyone’s wardrobe. Mimic the look of Taylor Momsen, you guessed it: Gossip Girl, who softens her cropped leather motorcycle jacket with a sweet and petite cream-colored bubble dress by investing in a leather jacket like this BGSD cropped lambskin jacket.
