This is news to me.

Apparently, this to-be-released film was 100% Filmed in San Francisco.

James Franco, the young San Francisco lawyer (apparently employed, this is Hollywood after all) takes Cherry to the roof of Medjul:

Hey, it’s Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire

Whose streets? Our streets! You can’t fake this kind of verite in a Hollywood back lot:

Oh, Cherry crashes her Audi at some point. An official SFPD Harley is in that scene.

And here’s Mel’s Drive In in the background:

And here’s the trailer:

Mr. Gary Oldman Graces San Francisco for “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” – British Consulate’s Sneak Peek – “Cool Britannia”

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Well here it is:

“The British Consul General, Ms Priya Guha, requests the pleasure of your company at a reception prior to a screening of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” November 16, 6:00-7:15pm”

O.K. then. And that’s not at all a typical kind of thing for San Francisco’s consular community, really, but our British Consulate-General is out there in the Bay Area promoting the heck out of Britain. (Cool Britannia they used to call it.) And actually that’s not a hard job when you have Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding this year (and her recent California visit, dropping by just to say “hi”) and the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics and whathaveyou.

Add to that list the start of a movie series that could rival James Bond and Harry Potter, who knows. It’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (that’s a nice trailer, huh?) featuring Mr. Gary Oldman (H.P.’s godfather!) and, already, it has an obscenely-high 97% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Check it:

“Based on the classic novel of the same name, the international thriller is set at the height of the Cold War years of the mid-20th Century. George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a disgraced British spy, is rehired in secret by his government – which fears that the British Secret Intelligence Service, a.k.a. MI-6, has been compromised by a double agent working for the Soviets.”

So last night, San Francisco’s first female British Consul General, Ms. Priya Guha, introduced this film at the Century 9 in Westfield’s San Francisco Centre. She pointed out that Britain is quite big in the movie biz, having over 100 film studios and 2500 post-production companies.

And then it was on with the show.

And then, who popped up as the curtain dropped but Gary Oldman and Director Tomas Alfredson. (Or so I’m told.) This very same crew was up in San Rafael two days ago and who knows where they’ll be tonight:

“OH MY GOD, Gary Oldman is coming to the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy screening tonight?!!” 

Anway, I don’t have a shot for you, so:

INSERT PHOTO OF MSSRS. OLDMAN AND ALFREDSON WITH CONSUL GENERAL HERE

But I do have shots from last night of people who may or may not have wanted their photos taken, so I’ll leave them caption-free. (I’ll note that CBS Channel 5 was def. in the house with famous Liam Mayclem and Beth Spotswood (she’s earned a page on Wiki now? Wow) on hand.)

So, Enter the Circus yourself, why not, starting December 9th, 2011.

See you there!

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Or not.

Never seen one in real life. But David Herron, Green Transportation Examiner(!), has a detailed review, including a test ride on the mean streets of San Francisco.

All the deets after the jump.

I don’t know, the new VeloMini trailer has pretty small wheels – maybe a little tough on Market Street:

Can you see yourself carrying this thing around?

And here’s a shot for the ladies:

All right, choose or lose:

For example, “Animal Tracker” challenges players to pick up the Wii Remote making a particular animal sound, while “Hide ‘n’ Hunt” asks players to locate a controller that’s been cleverly hidden by another player. Whether they’re playing cooperatively or competitively, Wii Party gives every player a turn in the spotlight by putting their customized Mii characters at the center of the action.

“Electric Cars are Gay” – This Line was Pulled from the Trailer of Ron Howard’s New Movie, But Not in San Francisco

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Actor Vince Vaughn plays an engine designer in Ron Howard’s upcoming film called The Dilemma, O.K. fine. But people are upset at the following line, uttered when the Vince Vaughn character makes a pitch to a car company:

Electric cars are gay. I mean not homosexual gay, but, you know, my-parents-are-chaperoning-the-dance gay.”

Well, GLAAD wasn’t happy about that, so Universal Pictures yanked these lines from the trailer promoting the movie.

Except in San Francisco, where they didn’t. So, the Metreon Theatre, as of yesterday, still uses the original trailer with the offending line intact.

So much for the promises of Hollywood…

And speaking of broken promises coming out of Tinseltown, when are they going to get around to fixing the steps of Alta Plaza, you know, the ones that got damaged during the filming of What’s Up, Doc back in the 1970′s?

Maybe someday.
