Stamford Movie Madness

Walking down Bedford tonight - just in front of the Avon - there were two giant tractor trailers and another around the bend in front of the CVS. It's a movie crew doing not much more than waiting around when we were there, but still cool to see! I Googled around a bit but I'm still not sure what the movie is. Anyone else know? 

In other amusing movie news, my Googling revealed a piece from Stamford Patch saying that Brad Pitt was interviewed about the Avon Theatre's "no refund" sign when showing his film, Tree of Life. You probably heard about the notice posted by the Avon that went viral, and if you didn't, you can read the posting here and see some of the coverage of it here. Apparently Mr. Pitt himself was asked about it on Entertainment Weekly and said "They said that? I didn’t know that. That’s great." I like a guy who can laugh at his own vaguely ridiculous movie. I liked the movie, but dinosaurs...really??

Anyhoo...I'm going to see if I can figure out what exactly they are filming - but you might want to take a walk down to the Avon and check it out for yourself.
