Did they use footage from the 2011 riot in the movie Battleship? I was watching it earlier, and caught a glimpse of what I thought was a Canucks jersey.

This is about an hour into the movie (don't click, it's just a screenshot):

IMDB says otherwise

The clips showing 'the world at riot, coming to an Apocalypse' are actual news clips captured during the riots in the United Kingdom in 2011.


iTV is also a British tv station.

I'm pretty sure it's from footage of people breaking into the bank shown in this photo:

That looks just like the BMO on Georgia street closest to the stadium (Georgia and Richards?).

I live nearby so I recognize it. It really DOES look like the same BMO that got trashed during the riots here. Hmmm

Can they do that?!
I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

as long as they paid for the footage or asked the owner it's fine. they probably would need to list credit of it.

In the pic GoaltenderInterference posted that is a Canucks jersey the girl is wearing, no if's and's or but's about it.

They could have easily covered up various logos in post-production. That looks eerily similar to the downtown BMO branch.
The greatest segue into a weather segment.

If you look at the girl in the bottom right of the pic it looks like she's wearing a Canucks away jersey, I think it's 17, with the Stick-in-Rink shoulder patch edited out.

The shoulder patch is a lot clearer if you watch the movie. It's just a really bad screenshot on my part.

Well, to be fair, I'm sure that not all the rioters were "youth"
