‘21' on location in Las Vegas

The movie “21,” which opens in theaters March 28, was mostly filmed at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino (3667 Las Vegas Blvd. S.; [866] 919-7472, www.planet hollywood.com). The film is based on Ben Mezrich’s 2002 book, “Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions” and stars Kate Bosworth, (left) Kevin Spacey and Lawrence Fishburne. (Sony Pictures)
Planet Hollywood, formerly the Aladdin, also served as the base for the “21" cast and crew during three weeks of pre-production and two more of filming in Las Vegas. The scene in which Laurence Fishburne (at left in a scene from the film with Jack McGee) chases Jim Sturgess, Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey through the casino -- past startled slot players at their machines -- was shot here. (Sony Pictures)
Additional filming took place at Red Rock Casino Resort (11011 W. Charleston Blvd., [866] 767-7773, www.redrocklasvegas.com) -- such as this one with Ben Campbell and Kate Bosworth at Red Rock’s Cherry Nightclub -- and at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (4455 Paradise Road, [800] 473-7625, www.hardrockhotel.com). (Sony Pictures)
The movie “21" stars (from left) Aaron Yoo, Kate Bosworth, Kevin Spacey, Liza Lapira and Jim Sturgess. While the film contains several sequences inside Las Vegas hotel rooms, not a single one of them was actually shot in Sin City. Producer Dana Brunetti says they were all filmed in Boston on sets built to look like high-roller suites along the Strip. (Sony Pictures)
