There was a bit in the Chinese papers yesterday about the upcoming Batman movie shoot in HK and how the Symphony of Lights will incorporate the Batman theme in it.

I can't imagine Batman in HK and the HK skyline portraying Gotham City. To be honest, HK's skyline is too modern looking to resemble Gotham's cathedral-like towers. Anyway, will be Hollywood produced or those localized versions kinda like what Toei did to Spiderman?

According to local news reports, one of the film spots will be at The Centre and the Batman symbol would be shone during the Symphony of Lights.

and the scary/amazing thing about that pic is that it appears to be missing Midtown, Manhattan's greatest cluster.

Tokyo's skyline






Tokyo is most dense city in the world, but their tall buildings are spread out, and they lack supertalls.

Building lighting yes but they don't have the skyscraper lighting effect that HK has plus a light show.

Yes, I've been posting his photos in SSC since long before you came onto this board. There are quite a number of good photographers on pBase.

A few more not-so-often seen vantage points in Hong Kong - source :

Union Square

The Kowloon skyline isn't as impressive from Wan Chai-Central, because the buildings are too dispersed (Langham, Hanoi, Union Square, Harbourfront). The best vantage point to view the Kowloon skyline is from Braemar Hill, where Hanoi Road and Union Square are aligned - such as this one:



Lei Yue Mun's also a good one, because Harbourfront then aligns with Union Square.
