Fun Fact: The film industry was initially developed in New Jersey, and for a while, that’s how it would have been. However, monetary interests in mind, alpha-dickwad Thomas Edison and his company “had a stranglehold on the entire cinema industry” by way of holding all the patents and preventing filmmakers from doing anything, so much that a few of them ran away to California and started a few studios like Universal Studios, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Paramount, and MGM. (source) On that note, fuck you, Edison. Anyway.
They’re shooting a film in Newark today.
Just to be clear, I’m an NJIT student, so my campus is in Newark. Because I’m a commuter, I usually take the Light Rail to school. However, due to the film, they closed the Light Rail for today and tomorrow.
I have no idea what exactly they’re shooting scene-wise, but this film is The Dark Knight Rises. Christopher Nolan, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson, Cillian Murphy, Christian Bale, and/or Morgan motherfucking Freeman might very well be in the same exact city I’m in right now.
Just to be clear:
The Dark Knight Rises is shooting in Newark. It’s close enough to directly fuck up my daily schedule. And somehow I think that’s awesome.
If someone’s gonna try and go tomorrow to see if they can sneak a peek at the set, please bring me along.
