Yesterday, local residents lined up along James Street North and Colbourne to watch the rain towers at work for special effects.
The film crew will be shooting scenes from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Sept. 26, 29 and 30, as well as Oct. 1. On those days, James St. N. will be closed off to traffic between Barton St. and Cannon St. from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. Businesses will remain open and locals are welcome to drop by during filming, which is expected to bring $350,000 to the city.
The cast of the science fiction action film includes Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton.
