The trailers arrived before 5 a.m. and as Bell Boulevard came to life a few hours later â€“ with restaurants and nail salons rolling up their security gates for the day â€“ the bustling mid-morning scene looked like something out of a movie.
And thatâ€™s just what it was.
On Monday, June 29, Papazzio Restaurant and Catering became the eatery of choice for the lead characters played by Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart in â€śRabbit Hole,â€ť an independent film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name.
For Eddy Collyns, the filmâ€™s location manager, shooting in Bayside was a natural decision.
â€śItâ€™s got many different looks: the small homes, the big homes, the parks,â€ť said Collyns, who, having worked as the location manager for the television series â€śRescue Me,â€ť has worked in the community on numerous other occasions and called it accessible and â€śa nice place to film.â€ť
Collyns said that 90 percent of the filming for â€śRabbit Holeâ€ť has been in Queens, with three days of shooting in Bayside kicking off with the morning at Papazzio, located at 39-38 Bell Boulevard.

Maxim has the “Hot 100.” People has its “Most Beautiful People.” But aside from sitting around a conference table arguing about celebs in bikinis, how do you actually decide who’s the hottest? At Zimbio, we’ve found a foolproof, scientific method for rating a couple’s hotness, based on four categories: Success, Attractiveness, Popularity and Staying Power.
For the first three, we’ve ranked each partner in a couple on a scale from one to 10, then added the two scores to come up with a final number (one to 20) in each category. We ranked Staying Power separately on a scale from one to 20 for each couple. The total of the scores in the four categories determined each couple’s rank on our list. Numbers don’t lie, folks.

CLAIMS made by New Idea yesterday that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are to adopt a child from Vietnam have been slammed by adoption experts and laughed off by family members.
Adoption experts told Angela Saurine that Vietnam is non compliant with the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption, an international agreement between countries to prevent exploitation of children.
Australia has never had a formal inter-country adoption relationship with Vietnam.
The magazine yesterday reported on its front page that the couple, who have an 11-month-old biological daughter Sunday Rose, had begun the process to adopt.
Janine Weir, spokeswoman for Debra-Lee Furness’s Adoption Awareness Week, said she was sceptical of the report which attributed confirmation to a Hanoi Ministry of Justice staffer.
“There are international rules on how you do this,” she said.
Kidman’s mum Janelle yesterday said she knew nothing of the adoption rumours.
“That’s news to me,” she said.
