Industry veteran reporter Army Archerd notes in his blog that the cross-country production will stop in New York City as of today, and be in town for three weeks. The post said, "(Tobey Maguire) will be in Central Park and Times Square among many of the city's sites and sights. Some other New York scenes can also be computerized with 'Spider-Man' in post-production."
FANTASTIC FOUR 2
The Hollywood Reporter confirms the widely believed fact that the production is returning to Vancouver.
Los Angeles CityBeat has an article about the production that includes some interesting details, including noting "1,400 special effects shots and a final budget -- according to its director -- a bit over its green-lit figure of 'exactly $184.5 million, but still well south of $200 million.'"
Yes, it comes out today (we've already reviewed it here at CBR). Yes, there are even more news items about it. Like IGN's FilmForce article, which skirts around the actual spoilers but sharp eyes can see the shadows of 'em. IGN also has video interviews with actors Famke Janssen, James Marsden, Aaron Stanford, Diana Ramirez, Shawn Ashmore, Anna Paquin, Ben Foster and director Brett Ratner (Windows Media and QuickTime).
Meanwhile, Superhero Hype has an interesting and cerebral interview with Kelsey Grammer about all kinds of things, including running for office and the philosophies behind his character. Finally, Famke Janssen is quoted at Sci Fi Wire talking about the different things they tried to transform her into Phoenix.
THAT'S A WRAP

Maybe your cousin is dating somebody who knows something, and they had to tell you?
