Star-studded movie that filmed scenes in North Attleboro, Wheaton College in Norton hits theaters | Local news


A movie featuring some of Hollywood’s biggest stars and scenes shot in North Attleboro and Wheaton College in Norton hits theaters Thursday.

“Don’t Look Up,” a satire starring Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep, will screen at Lux’s Showcase theaters in North Attleboro and at Patriot Place in Foxboro.

The film will also debut on Netflix on December 24.

Viewers will be able to see if scenes shot in the area were shown on the big screen or ended up on the floor of the editing room.

The film crews were at Chris Gasbarro’s Fine Wine & Spirits on Route 1 in North Attleboro last February and Wheaton College last November. Lawrence was seen on set while filming on the Wheaton Campus ‘Dimple’.

Filming also took place in Boston, Brockton and Worcester, among other locations in Massachusetts.

DiCaprio and Lawrence play doomed astronomers who discover that a large meteor is on a collision course with Earth, and they go on a media tour to warn people.

Besides the big stars, Foxboro resident Juri Love and her 11-year-old son Jaden Onwuakor shot scenes from the film. Love is a correspondent for The Foxboro Reporter.

The film is written and directed by Adam McKay, an actor, comedian and screenwriter who has co-wrote films including “Anchorman” and “Talladega Nights”.
