I have to agree with these 2

I have to agree with these 2 guys statement about building a set "here" as a sarcastic remark relating to "cost effectiveness".
This is part of the reason why Hollywood doesn't downsize its cost budget with these computer generated FX movies...the state incentives pay for it in the long run.
Reminds me of King Kong's head on top of the guard booth at Screen Gems years ago...Mega Bucks to create it...just to watch it get weathered on a daily basis.
Kimmel mention an executive Producer needed to watch over an issue like this on wasteful spending (so to speak)...and he's right. But that takes one back to Square One...state incentive monies flipping the bill.
The Hollywood Bean Counters went the wrong way...but who pays for it?
Not them!

Wonder who that Executive Producer was?

No other but Mr. Jon Favreau! Imagine that.

But go ahead with your non sequiturs regarding the film industry... ( I like ellipses, too!)

Breaking News! Additional IM3 minutiae now available!

In a continued effort to avoid any actual news, reporters all over town are busily checking under every town manhole for additional IM3 (Have you noticed how it's now de rigueur to say that instead of the movie's name?) minutiae.

In this eyepopping episode Jon Favreau explains that a movie set was built in a cow field! Wow! Aint that something! Who'd a thunk it? Life changing!

I don't think my life would

I don't think my life would be complete without knowing all of the ins and outs of that movie filming in Wilmington.
