The trailer for Masterminds, the heist comedy that’s based on a true North Carolina story, is out now. The movie was filmed on the streets of downtown Asheville and around Western North Carolina last summer.
Watching the trailer, I was trying to match scenes with the locations. I’ll have to do some more work to catalogue it all, but here are two: the van busting through a warehouse wall was shot on location in Old Fort; the slow-mo lollipop Wiig walk was shot on location in front of the BB&T building in downtown Asheville.
Can y’all match more scenes with locations? Hit me up or leave a comment. Meanwhile, enjoy.
They shot some scenes in the River Ridge Plaza where I work. I heard they were blowing up a armored car in front of where Kitchen & Co. used to be. I’ll be interested to see it. I like the cast so hopefully it’ll be funny.
At the 59 second mark, Kristen Wiig is walking in front of the BB&T building.
I think it looks like a fun movie.
Hey Jason, I think Zach’s beard & hair kinda look like yours from back in your Mountain Xpress days.
the gun range scene was shot on the Biltmore Property
Meh. Slapstick and southern stereotypes. Pass.
I love the hand held squirt bottle behind Owen Wilson’s shoulder at 0:55.
Lol. Now we’ll be seeing “tourists” and “kristen wigg” fans eating lollipops in front of the BB&T building.
