  • Some have way too much time on their hands. Glad to see that people other than you Brad have the ability to use it productively.

    I believe that years from now the motion picture industry will be glad you performed this valuable exercise.

  • Parker,

    One person's waste of time is another person's passion.

    To a non-golfer spending an entire Saturday chasing a little white ball around a manicured lawn is a waste of time. To an atheist, going to church is highly unproductive. And while you and plenty of other people might find this blog an exercise in pointlessness, I really don't care.

    I did it for my own curiousity. I wanted to know how much screen time was shot locally and the only way to quantify it was to go scene by scene. And since I went to the trouble of tabulating the information, there was no reason not to share the detail that I compiled the summary from. I figured that the thousand or so locals who appeared as extras might find it as interesting as I did.

    I should warn you that I will probably waste some more time doing the same thing when the other trailers (there will probably be at least two more) are released.

    Thanks for reading.

  • :83 to :83 (0.5 sec.) -- Exterior night shot of police cars. My bet is local. I disagree with this particular line. I counted it was 0.6, maybe you should check your timing again

  • would have been ok if the trailer referenced and linked had not been removed

  • HarveyJoe, I think we're both a little off. I timed it again and came in .556783 seconds, but with rounding you win.

    Hotrod Girl, I didn't realize the clip had gotten deleted off of YouTube. I found another copy and have changed the link.

    Thanks for reading.

  • I was a featured extra and am looking forward to seeing if I made the cut. Thanks for giving us your information, Brad, and for future details. All others who don't care, oh, well! I had a great time working on the movie!

  • Brad, have you tried calling the "tip line" shown in the trailer? 1-855-4-Amy-Tips.
