Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! 

It's "Insurgent."

The teen sci-fi movie, the second in the "Divergent" series, is planning some high wire acts in downtown Atlanta, zipping from roofline to roofline. I watched them set up yesterday from the Commerce Club, on the 49th floor of the 191 building.

Someone shot a few seconds of video showing the stunt people practicing. Here it is. Yikes!

"Selma," meanwhile, is filming at the Georgia Capitol building. My colleague, political reporter Aaron Gould Sheinin, took some photos of things getting set up at the Gold Dome including this one of vintage vehicles. 

Cop thriller "Triple Nine" is also going to be filming downtown. 

When movies set up shop they bring a ton of trucks and gear with them, and street/sidewalk/lane closures are common. If you're taking the kids to see the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke or the new National Center for Civil and Human Rights (or if you just live or work downtown), you may encounter some traffic issues.
