Pandemonium in Dale Street and Tariff street at the moment as the 1940’s cars are brought out in readiness for filming of the Captain America movie – which we believe starts tomorrow. There’s also a bunch of bikes which we reckon will be used by the extras to ride up and down our newly-created slice of war-time Brooklyn.
So what do you think the ‘Rub Car’ means? We’re speculating it’s the car (or one of the cars) that will be blown up in the explosions which feature in the car chase…
We’ve just had word that the cars used in filming have started rolling out onto Dale street and Tariff street in Manchester.
Some photos from the set are below. As you can see lots more work has gone on this morning and early afternoon.
Update: An eagle eyed reader has noted that there’s a grammatical error on one of the signs…
A hive of action on the Captain America film set today in the Northern Quarter in Manchester. Today is the last day of prep before the filming of the Marvel comics classic starts tomorrow. As we reported a couple of days ago filming will commence tomorrow (21st Sept) and will continue until 1st October.
The set on Dale Street is really starting to take shape, we’ll be posting some photos of actual 1940’s New York later so you can compare!
If you have any photos of the set that you have taken, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll get featured on the site.
