Cosmopolis filming continued yesterday in Toronto. Set soldiers Suziekew, Yukkei, Janners and I pooled our photos and video for one mega post!
The scene being filmed was the lunch deli scene, a strange, kind of wild scene featuring heated banter between Eric and Elise and… rodents. You can read more about this particular scene in a fabulous post by Chauffeur Tink HERE. *spoilers*
There’s lots to share. Grab a water bottle, sit back and get comfortable. 😉 We’ve got Sarah Gadon, the limo, extras, and yes, Rob! After the jump.
This was my first time seeing the limo and I had a chat with a really nice guy named Peter who minds it when it’s parked in the street. He pointed out the New York City stickers in the front dash and said it was fine to take pictures of the interior… because this limo’s interior won’t be in the movie!! It’s the limo used for background shots etc.
As on Monday, the filming was interior so we didn’t see Rob or Sarah during filming. It was interesting to see the extras being wrangled. I had no idea how concise the background players in a film were coordinated. They walked by the restaurant window during repeated takes and were choreographed for continuity by the man in the headset. I laughed when the odd real pedestrian would stroll by. Erm… CUT!!! (not really)
Walking around I noticed some very un-Canadian things; a U.S. post box, NYC trashcan, American newsboxes and, gasp, not-on-garbage day garbage! The tree was fake too and there was a steam effect going off. Along with the two NYC taxis and Eric’s limo nearby I was hoping there would be exterior shooting but there wasn’t. 🙁
We spotted Sarah Gadon across the street when there was a break in filming!

The cast and crew still had a long day ahead of them but us set soldiers all needed to head back to real life. However, our best Rob sighting of the day happened right at the end of our day! In honour of that wonderful moment, I’ve bundled the best of our Rob photos and videos here at the end of the post. 🙂
From early in the day, the transformation of Rob into Eric Packer! Photos by Yukkei
Suzie captured a couple of videos as Rob was on his way to set. 🙂
Thank you to Yukkei, Suzie, Jan, Ana and Cath for another fun day and for sharing their goodies. Love to see how respectful most of the fans are while observing. Can’t wait for another opportunity to visit.
P.S. I was looking at limo tags for this post and see I made a tag before saying “I want a pic with the limo”. Well, slap my ass and call me ‘Nancy Babich’ I forgot to get one! Lucky for me, Jan took this one while I was snooping. It charts. 😉
