A crew of about 150 people filmed three days at the hotel last week in an elaborate shoot that took three weeks of preparation, according to a permit filed with the city. The work included “construction of large set pieces and scaffolding inside the lobby of the hotel on levels 1 through 6.”
The scene also called for stuntmen rappelling from scaffolding and “atmospheric smoke effects,” according to the permit handled by FilmL.A. Inc.
'X-Men Days of Future Past' wraps production | Coming Soon
Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), the production will travel the globe and utilize a mixture of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography to bring to the screen a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, originally developed for Paramount Pictures and producer Lynda Obst. The new script chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
Looks like ‘Tomorrowland’ has gone into production.

With the announcement earlier this week, many fans have been wondering just why it will take so long to see Hank Pym hit the big screen as Ant-Man will not be making its way to theaters until November 2015. Though he’s currently at work on the comedy The World’s End with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, everything previously seemed lined up for a possible 2014 bow to get in just under the wire before The Avengers 2.
But earlier this summer Wright also committed himself to directing another project: a top secret sci-fi project calledCollider that is being executive produced by J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot banner. Now, it seems 2013 will be the year to get the project on track as new intel reports that cameras will begin to roll next week.
This is good news.
