This weekend two high profile movies, Divergent and Jupiter Ascending, are filming on location in Chicago.

Here’s a look at where you can find them:

Jupiter Ascending is filming Saturday at 200 W Lake St (W Lake St and N Wells St in Chicago).

The movie was also spotted filming some pretty cool stunt scenes at 360 N. Michigan Avenue this week. Check a video of a stunt person rehearsing for the shoot in the video above.

As we were first to report, the cast of Divergent returned to the streets of Chicago last weekend and once again fans got a sneak peek at some of the scenes they are filming. They shot several scenes inside the Seventeenth Church of Christ on Wacker Street before moving to Adams and Clark St on Sunday, where the streets were covered with dirt for the shoot.

Today, in addition to being in their studio, Cinespace, they are also filming at 3201 S State St, Chicago.

This weekend Divergent continued filming at the set they have spent several months building on a vacant lot at 600 S. Wells St, Chicago. The futuristic box-style homes built on the set are the Abnegation Houses fans will recognize from the novel.

Among the movie’s stars on set this weekend were Shailene Woodley, Ashley Judd, and Mekhi Phifer. Author Veronica Roth was also spotted!

Just a quick update for Divergent in Chicago. One of our readers, Mike, sent us the following filming permit information for this weekend. The shoot date is listed as June 15, but as we know the permit dates aren’t always 100% so I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up filming at this location on Sunday (or on both days). If you are familiar with Chicago you will know that this filming location (around 57th St and Ellis) is near the University of Chicago, too.

It also wouldn’t be surprising if they returned to 600 S Wells St on Saturday as they were originally suppose to start filming there on Wednesday but didn’t actually start shooting until Thursday. More details here too.

UPDATE: According to new permit signs outside 600 S. Wells, they will be filming there this weekend as well.

If you spot Divergent filming at either location, please send us your updates, scoop and photos via Twitter or email at olv@onlocationvacations.com!
