Photos: “42″ and “ID Theft” filming in Midtown

The movie "42" is filming in Midtown, including a scene at the Biltmore. This exciting photo shows one of the trucks unloading equipment this morning. Rumor has it that President Barack Obama wants to visit the set of the movie, about Dodgers great Jackie Robinson. No confirmation from the Secret Service or White House, of course.

Rumor had it that President Barack Obama wanted to visit the set of the movie, about Dodgers great Jackie Robinson. He went to the Varsity instead during his fundraising trip to Atlanta on Tuesday.

Right now a sidewalk closing is about the only inconvenience resulting from "42" setting up at the Biltmore. That'll change if POTUS swings by. The movie stars Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson and Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey.

Ford was spotted entering a Midtown nightclub Monday night. The club was closed at the time; it could have been a filming site

Meanwhile, at the Georgian Terrace, crews are readying for a scene in "ID Theft." The movie stars Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman. Bateman has been to the Georgian Terrace before - to film a scene for "The Change-Up" a couple of years ago.

Looks like "ID Theft" will film in the bar at the Georgian Terrace. They've hung blackout drapes on the windows. The movie is about a guy who has his identity stolen by a woman. Hilarious!

Movie production usually impacts traffic. This is Ponce at Peachtree in Midtown. Traffic's moving ok at the moment but of course a presidential motorcade in the area could change that in a hurry!

Hey, Mr. President,
Gonna make any unfunny jokes about Jackie Robinson and Chipper Jones like you did about the Red Sox and Kevin Youkilis that you made last night at Symphony Hall in Boston? Oh, guess you don’t do that when you are in a crowd of your “peers”. It goes with “knowing your audience”, doesn’t it? Since you haven’t figured that out in the last 3 years, you do not deserve reelection to POTUS. Buh, bye.

Great blog post. A few things i would like to bring about is that laptop or computer memory is required to be purchased if your computer still cannot cope with anything you do with it. One can add two RAM memory boards of 1GB each, for example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should always check the manufacturer’s documentation for own PC to make sure what type of storage is essential.
