This is what remains of the second bombing location for the movie, currently taking place on the decommissioned Weymouth NAS. Weeks-old debris remains from pyrotechnics, and filming has shifted to the Watertown set (see rooftops in the distance on left). Interesting to watch some of the film making process unfold. The amount of resources put toward this seem inexhaustible.
A couple of reports from this past holiday weekend:
Vanyaland reports the bassist for a band playing O'Brien's in Allston last night tried to set his instrument on fire - with the help of some lighter fluid. No, it wasn't the Flaming Lips.
Sgt. Luke Taxter at D-4 reports a large fight inside the Cask 'n Flagon early Sunday ended with "1 female with cut to face and officers closing the bar early."
Some light-saber action on the Common last night.
