One of the best parts was spotting and identifying the Toronto landmark in the background of the scene (or sometimes not just the background -- a key scene was filmed inside the Toronto Reference Library). It was released last year, so I guess that movie is among the most recent 'big' films to be shot in Toronto.

    RED (starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, etc) also came out last year, it has a good many "spot the TO location" moments in it. I think it was almost all shot here.

    I don't know how big a movie it was, but 'Kick-Ass' was recently filmed here. Also, 'Devil' by M. Night Shyamalan.

    World Trade Centre with Nicolas Cage was filmed here in 2006 I think. Also, Yonge St. north of Dundas was transformed into 125th Street in Harlem for the making of The Hulk in 2007.

    There was a story in several papers at the beginning of October stating that Pinewood was filing applications for more sound stages this month as well as more administration space. I am having trouble copying and pasting on my iPad but will post articles when able.
