Several nights last December, parts of Avenue A were jammed for yet another big movie production. That movie, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (based on the teen novel), will be released Oct. 3. The trailer is now in theaters. (And online...)
Here's a piece on the movie, where two teens meet cute in Manhattan and end up having a wacky night with the city as their playground, from MTV.com last Dec. 14:
Film sets are places of controlled spontaneity, but even MTV News got more than we bargained for during a late-night visit to the set of "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," starring Kat Dennings and Michael Cera, where the wind howled, the people screamed and the actors threw everything but the kitchen sink at us — that is, when the fine citizens of the Big Apple weren't throwing it at them first.
"That's filming in New York for you!" Dennings laughed when a loud truck cut her off midsentence. "Soon some homeless guy is going to throw a banana at me. We've had homeless guys throwing avocados, tomatoes, random blunt objects. It's been amazing! I mean, you really can't fake real New York."
It would all be massively rude, if it all weren't somehow oddly appropriate, given the farcical nature of the story about two teens sharing one wild night in Manhattan, during which just about everything that can happen does.
And a video clip!
