Stars all over Boston

It's been a memorable year for the local film community. Martin Scorsese won an Oscar - at last - for his Boston-based crime drama "The Departed"; Ben Affleck wowed us with his directorial debut "Gone Baby Gone"; and, thanks to tax incentives approved this year by lawmakers, Hollywood shot no fewer than eight major movies in and around the Hub in '07. Roll the credits:


March 2007. Some scenes were shot in Las Vegas, but most of the filming took place in Boston, including one day when the Mass. Avenue Bridge was shut down so a helicopter could land.
Director: Robert Luketic
Stars: Kate Bosworth, Jim Sturgess, Laurence Fishburne, and Kevin Spacey.
Story: A drama based on Ben Mezrich's bestseller "Bringing Down the House" about a team of MIT students who train with a professor to beat the Vegas casinos at blackjack.
Release date: March 28, 2008
