Absolute Machinery Corp. sent a team of technical experts to build an injection molding factory in a warehouse in Wilmington, Mass., for the filming of "Joy," starring Jennifer Lawrence.
“The idea of taking an empty place and making it looking somebody's been running an injection molding shop for 25 years – that's the key,” said Nate Smith, an owner of the used machinery company.
I know it ain't Heavy Metal to say it, maaahn, but dammit this movie is good. I saw "Joy" twice, both times in the movie theater, and that is the most important thing.
Movies are meant to be seen in the theater. The sound is the most important thing, even in a small-screen theater. But a large-screen theater to see a film… how can you beat that? My advice: Experience "Joy." But don't do that in a private setting. Be around other people; do not be afraid.
Here's my review of "Joy": Divorced woman living with eccentric relatives, invents self-wringing mop, fights an injection molder for intellectual property, kicks ass, does not have romance with Bradley Cooper, and it's plastic. Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence.
I saw this movie twice.
In April, the crew filming the 20th Century Fox movie needed to reproduce an injection molding factory for a key scene for Lawrence: Sneaking into and then confronting the owner for stealing and apparently patenting her mop. She accuses him of stealing. The cops come and take her away.
