Bandar Ceme OnlineThanks to Annie for the heads up and to Ryan as usual for his excellent reports.

Spotted on the set were Josh Holloway (Sawyer) and Alan Dale (Charles Widmore), under the direction of Jack Bender. I stopped by on the way home from work today, they were filming one last shot down the submarine hatch with Holloway. Then, Holloway and Dale followed the crew as they disembarked the submarine as the sun began to set, moving over to the enclosed exhibit.

Season 6 Status Report From Doc Jensen

Menang CemeNothing much we didn’t already know but a good read.

Based only on isu released or confirmed by the producers. While you won’t find any spoilerific ”Transmissions” here, I encourage anyone who has endeavored to remain deliberately ignorant about Lost 6.0 to skip over the next several paragraphs.

What we know? Lost began production in August and just finished shooting the eighth episode of its 16-episode, 18-hour season, which includes a two-hour premiere and a two-hour finale. The title of the first episode: ”LA X.” At Comic-Con last July, exec producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof showed three short videos ΓÇö a Mr. Cluck’s commercial with millionaire Hurley, an America’s Most Wanted segment about fugitive Kate, and an Oceanic Airlines ad touting its spotless safety record ΓÇö that contained details that deviated from established continuity. Did Juliet succeed in changing history by detonating Jughead in the Dharma Initiative past? The producers say: That’s exactly the question we should be asking. (I’ll have more thoughts in this issue in the READER MAIL section.)

Who’s in, who’s out… Emilie de Ravin’s maybe-dead Claire ΓÇö last seen haunting Kate’s dreams and hanging with Ghost Christian in Jacob’s shack ΓÇö rejoins the narrative in a big way after going MIA last season. A number of certifiably deceased characters will be making seemingly inexplicable return appearances this coming season, including Charlie (Dominic Monaghan, now of FlashForward), Boone (Ian Somerhalder, now of The Vampire Diaries), and birthday-ambiguous Charlotte (Rebecca Mader, who can currently be seen in The Men Who Stare At Goats). The producers also recently told my colleague Dan Snierson that Juliet is indeed toes up ΓÇö but actress Elizabeth Mitchell will materialize at least twice during the simpulan sweep of episodes. (Let’s take a moment and shoot furious eye darts of blazing indignation at her new show, V, for completely letting Mitchell down with mediocre material.) Nestor Carbonell (Richard Alpert) has been promoted to series regular. Henry Ian Cusick, who plays Desmond Hume, will not be a series regular this season, but it’s believed we haven’t seen the last of the ex-Hatchman.

…and who’s new: Hiroyuki Sanada, a popular Japanese actor who worked with Matthew Fox in Speed Racer, has been cast as a character named Dogen. (New Lost Philosopher Reference Alert! Dogen Zenji was a fabled Zen Buddhist teacher.) John Hawkes (Deadwood) has been cast as Lennon, whose name has me humming ”Imagine” while painfully recalling that time in high school when I took a test about Russian history and I got docked one full grade for consistently misspelling ”Lenin” as ”Lennon.” Damn the corrupting mind virus that is the Beatles! Other familiar faces/names scheduled to appear this season: Sheila Kelley (L.A. Law, Sisters) and William Atherton, the always-entertaining character actor who specializes in playing… well, a–holes.

What’s next? Possibly very little. Team Lost would like to keep as much of season 6 under wraps as possible ΓÇö even down to keeping ABC’s promotional campaign free of any season 6 imagery. We’ll see if this plan holds. Examples of other hotly anticipated pop culture that considered ΓÇö then reconsidered ΓÇö ”No Advertising” gambits: Star Wars: Episode 1 ΓÇö The Phantom Menace and James Cameron’s Avatar. In both cases, the producers and the studio (Fox) decided that remaining secretive would only further stoke already unrealistic expectations. However, movies and TV shows have very different concerns. Moreover, the very premise of Lost’s simpulan season (i.e., will the story take place in a rebooted or non-rebooted time line?) is itself a massive spoiler. And regardless: I don’t think anyone who has stuck with this show for this long really needs any more wind up for the saga’s climactic act.

Small Filming Snippets – Hpu – 21St November

Menang CemeThanks to briar910 for the following

I received this email this morning from my Hawaii Pacific University email account

Hello, HPU Community:

This is a notice that LOST will be filming a scene on Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to early afternoon in the alley behind the FS and MP buildings.

The moped parking area will still be available near Fort Street Mall, but will be not be available closer to the alley. There will be signs posted to that effect.

This is a chase scene involving a female actress who is ΓÇ£running away from the cops.ΓÇ¥ Fake police cars will also be involved in the scene, on Bethel St. and Beretania St.

Any faculty, staff and students who are at the Downtown campus this Saturday not to be alarmed by a (possibly shrieking) woman running in the alley, or other strange noises, as it is only Hollywood. Thank you!

Which Of These Is The Title For Episode 6.09?

Bandar CemeUpdate: 13:40 Sorry I should have said rumoured to be Alpert Centric, although the title strongly hints at this. Not enough coffee this morning 🙂

Episode 6.09 – Ab Aeterno – Filming Snippets

Menang CemeUpdate: 28th Nov As some of our more excitable readers are unable to distinguish between Spoiler and Rumour the rumour part has been removed and placed in the rumours section. That will teach me to be lazy 🙂
Update: 20:00 Before some of our more excitable readers explode let me try to explain some stuff to avoid people jumping to all sorts of crazy assumptions.

1) The 2nd part of this post is just a rumour. I posted it here because a) I could not be bothered to make a separate Rumours Section post and b) it was relevant in context to the spoiler part
2) They are from the same source
3) Now the fact that the rumour that some of our Losties are on The Black Rock ie Sayid, Locke, Kate, Claire: Does not necessarily mean that they are on The Black Rock back in the 1800’s. They could simply being filming a scene inside The Black Rock in current time.
4) The Alpert/MIB scene is on the Black Rock in the 1800’s

Thanks to our guy PF108 for the following snippets of the current filming of the Richard Alpert Episode

Ok Dark here is what I know, and it’s pretty wild:

-On monday at Diamond head studios, they will be filming Alpert scenes on the Blackrock. There is a mock-up of the BR in front of a giant green screen inside there.
-Actor present during this scene are for Alpert, Father Suarez, Capt. Whitfield, and (and this is what they actually called him) the man in black.

Will keep you posted when I find out more Dark!
