That playground in your 3rd pic and in this one.



Is that Ho Man Tin East Service Reservoir Playground, or have I got my ball bearings in a twist?

Ho Man Tin is further away from the bright-lit playground in the following photo. That's around Kowloon City / To Kwa Wan. If that's the playground you're talking about, then you're way off.



Ho Man Tin is beyond the buildings in yellow and cream red.

Ah gotchya - cos the Ho Man Tin Reservoir Playground is on a hill, and has a fantastic view - the tops of IFC, Hanoi, ICC are visible.

^ Even in that photo you won't find the playground, since it is tucked away around the buildings in the area. In fact, if you are trying to look for it from a Lion Rock or Fei Ngo Shan vantage point, you will not likely spot it. Time to change to a different location.

Wasn't looking for it there..just posting a pic.

Here's one for a debate - what gives the "better" vantage point: Fei Ngo Shan or Lion Rock?

We've been discussing this topic for over two years. Maybe it's time to transition from the discussion stage to the nomination stage.

I'm curious if the setting of the HK filming is still Gotham City or is it HK?

I've read that the film is about Batman following Joker around the world incl Paris and New York or something.

New Batman movie completes high profile shooting in Hong Kong
12 November 2007

HONG KONG (AP) - The new Batman movie starring Christian Bale has finished most of its filming in Hong Kong with a scene showing dozens of police officers storming a skyscraper in the financial district, the local production company assisting the filmmakers said Monday.

The sequence filmed late Sunday and early Monday, which did not involve any of the movie's stars, marks the end of a high-profile shoot clouded by pollution and energy consumption concerns.

An official at Hong Kong's October Pictures said filmmakers could shoot more footage of Hong Kong's famed skyline at sunset, but it was unlikely. The official declined to give his name.

Earlier, director Christopher Nolan and his crew filmed Christian Bale, who plays Bruce Wayne and Batman, and Morgan Freeman, who portrays Lucius Fox, having a conversation on a pedestrian bridge that connects Hong Kong's Central financial district and the upscale Mid-Levels residential area, the official said.

They also filmed Lucius Fox arriving at the same office building stormed by the police officers and chatting with security guards, he said.

Bale said at a press conference Friday he was scheduled to jump off Hong Kong's tallest building, the 90-floor International Finance Center, a sequence also featured in "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life," starring Angelina Jolie.

"The Dark Knight," which also involves scenes shot in Chicago and London, involves Batman leaving Gotham City for the first time.

His foray into Asia hit several snags in Hong Kong, however, with local media reporting that filmmakers cut a scene involving Batman jumping from a plane into the city's Victoria Harbor because of its filthy waters. Nolan denied the reports, saying the change was a scripting decision.

Environmental activists also criticized a request from October Pictures asking tenants of waterfront buildings to keep their lights on all night to better showcase Hong Kong's skyline, filled with glittering skyscrapers, calling it a waste of energy.

Hong Kong officials earlier also expressed concern over noise pollution and traffic chaos during the shoot.

"The Dark Knight," a sequel to the 2005 hit "Batman Begins," also stars Heath Ledger as the Joker and Michael Caine as Batman's butler, Alfred. The Warner Bros. production is due out next summer.
