John Wick 2 Trailer with scenes from WTC Hub (WTC scene at 1:03).

https://youtu.be/ChpLV9AMqm4

Tried embedding, but the link on YouTube didn't work.

There's another trailer showing a fight on a PATH train, so I guess at some point John Wick goes to Jersey.

Connection to the E trains has been opened.

Video on this site:

Apart from that, some digging seems to be going on east of 2WTC, but unfortunately the oculus cam has been shifted a bit so its hardly visible via webcam :-(

I'm sure it's not intentional, but from here the Wintergarden lights look like a skull.

I stopped by the other night. The holiday lights and decorations are pretty nice. I honestly didn't expect them to do that, but it's a nice surprise.

Mhhhhhhhhhhh, idk how to feel about recording scenes of killing and violence in a location like this. Seems a little buit disrespectful regardinfg this locations past. There is always the fulton transit centre to do actions scenes that take place in modern lower Manhattan.

I recommend feeling proud and relieved that Hollywood is dissociating Westfield WTC from the 9/11 Memorial above. Each has its own distinct significance and mood; we cannot in good conscience allow the terrorist attacks to damn the whole superblock, can we? The sooner we make the remainder of the WTC a secular, neutral, fun-permitted zone, the better.

But, again, just my recommendation if you're not sure how to feel about it. It certainly works well for me!

I usually not like or maybe better, I'm not a big fan of Calatrava because I think that his architechture is ephemeral/short-lived (I don't know how is better to say that), but this is building is really curious, I mean that these photos show an attractive point of view of this hub.

I know this thing cost a lot and corners were cut... but I still think it looks great and iconic. It captures light well both inside and outside, natural and unnatural. I think that is one of its best qualities.

Looks like they properly censored the ads for that show. I guess they learned from the previous controversy of the previous ads involving a subway car with half swastikas and half Imperial Japanese emblems and telling you to pick a side (in the show, it is 1962 and America is divided in three, West Coast for Japan, Midwest and East Coast for Nazi Germany, and the Rocky Mountains, which is an impoverished demilitarized zone without a formal economy to keep the two World War II winning superpowers from fighting each other). Also, the American Reich headquarters building is still changing locations. Some scenes show it replacing the UN Headquarters and some show it next to the Brooklyn Bridge replacing the housing projects there. I highly recommend watching the show if you have some free time, just be forewarned about the previously mentioned emblems and some graphic scenes.

I once thought that video screen would be horrible but it actually gives some life and color to the otherwise hospital white environment.

Does anyone else think that this thread has turned into more of a Photographic Thread that it is an informational thread about this project? I've seen very little actual information about this project presented a long time, everything just seems to be pictures taken by people trying to show that they can take better pictures than others can.

That's not a bad thing at all. It basically shows that the masterpiece is finished and it gets the deserved admiration from a lot of photographers.

What more information could you want. The thing is there. It exists.

The photos show something interesting though. Because of the aesthetics aparently the signage is so sparse or unclear that they have had do put up temporary banners and signs. Fail.
