Introducing “The Romanoffs,” the highly anticipated follow-up to “Mad Men” from creator Matthew Weiner.
Weiner created, wrote, directed and executive produced the anthology series, which will debut October 12 on Amazon Prime Video. While the new trailer doesn’t include any footage, it features the names of the dozens of stars who will appear in the series.
The sprawling cast includes “Mad Men” alums Christina Hendricks and John Slattery, Aaron Eckhart, Diane Lane, Paul Reiser, Isabelle Huppert, Corey Stoll, Andrew Rannells, Jack Huston and Amanda Peet.
“The Romanoffs,” which is set around the globe, features eight separate stories about people in contemporary times who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family that ruled Russia from 1613 until the Bolsheviks seized power in 1917.
A car flies through downtown Birmingham, flips into the air, and lands upside down on it’s hood.
The man driving it, is applauded.
“This is every little kids dream come true to do this kind of stuff on a film set and get paid for it,” explains Kevin Watterman. He is the one who was behind the wheel, and is the Assistant Stunt coordinator for the movie “LIVE”
The action packed flick staring Actor Aaron Eckhart has been filming in downtown Birmingham all month – and has included chases, explosions, gunfire and crashes.
Crews even tried out a new hamster wheel like apparatus they created to make a car roll multiple times in one take.
If you’re driving in downtown Birmingham, take a good look at the cop in the car next to you. It just might be actor Aaron Eckhart, who’s in town filming an action movie, “Live.” The police thriller, directed by Steven C. Miller, focuses on a disgraced cop who’s searching for the police commissioner’s kidnapped daughter with the help of an online reporter.
Eckhart, 50, has generated a dose of excitement here since the movie started filming on May 15. The star has graciously posed for selfies with fans during his work breaks and off days. Also, onlookers have shared photos and video clips from the set on social media. Here’s a sampling of those posts, along with a few updates from director Miller.
‘Live,’ featuring Hollywood star Aaron Eckhart, began filming Tuesday morning. It’s the most recent of several movies that have chosen Birmingham in the last several months. Leaders from Create Birmingham say this one features a much bigger budget and more action than any of the others.
“We’re going to have car crashes and explosions and hovering helicopters, gun fights,” Create Birmingham president Buddy Palmer said. “So they’ll be cars rocketing out of alleyways downtown. It’s going to be fun.”
