“Ring” in a New Year of Movies and Shows

The Walking Dead had its mid-season premiere this past Sunday and was watched by 12 million viewers. Some of those viewers were watching alongside AMT at Smoke Ring at our "Rise Up & Hook Up" watch party. And even though audiences were assured that going forward TWD would be less graphic than the infamous Glenn and Abraham scene at the beginning of this current season, that didn't stop them from coming back after the mid-season hiatus. As Rick's group against the Saviors grows, that promise of less graphic content only makes us wonder how the…continue reading →

Football Season Is Over

"Rise Up" was the marketing tagline for the Atlanta Falcons as they made their way to Super Bowl LII, and rising up was exactly what the Falcons did in Houston this past weekend. They rose to the occasion and played the closest game in Super Bowl history--the first to go into overtime. And while the Falcons lost to the Patriots, this will not be the last time Atlanta is in the Super Bowl spotlight. In 2019, the 53rd Super Bowl is set to be hosted in Atlanta right near Atlanta Movie Tours' neighborhood of…continue reading →

From Georgia Filming to the Screen Actors Guild Awards

At the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards last night, the Atlanta film community came out in full force. Many Georgia filmed movies were nominated including Hidden Figures, Captain America: Civil War, The Walking Dead, and Stranger Things.  Stranger Things was nominated for three awards, including Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for which Millie Bobby Brown and Winona Ryder were nominated. If Brown had won this category, it would have made her the youngest winner in SAG history. Sadly, she lost to Claire Foy for the Netflix Original The Crown; but she was the 3rd nominee in the…continue reading →
Rise Up for the Falcons and The Walking Dead

Rise Up for the Falcons and The Walking Dead

The last time the Atlanta Falcons won the play-offs and went to the Superbowl, it was January of 1999, and filming in Atlanta was slow. Scream had been filmed here in 1997, Black Dog starring Patrick Swayze and Meat Loaf in 1998, but in 1999, TV movies and the show Good Eats made up the majority of filming in Atlanta.  Now as the Falcons gear up for their second Superbowl, the filming industry is booming in and around the city of Atlanta. The Founder (starring Michael Keaton and Nick Offerman among others), Rings (starring Vincent D'Onofrio, Johnny Galecki, and many others), and Table…continue reading →
