Footage of 2011 Riot in "Battleship"?

19 posts in this topic

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.

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):

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

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

Another reminder of the stupidity that still exsists in the Vancouver Youth.

They could have easily covered up various logos in post-production. That looks eerily similar to the downtown BMO branch.

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.

The whole movie was said to be worthy of a riot.

I honestly didnt mind it.. some parts yea.. kinda crap.. but I've always loved realistic(or close to) kind of military movies.. Cant stand when someone runs out with a machine gun of some sorts held at arms length
