Correct, the background was the skyline from Shanghai, but the interior shots of the base were from a building in London. They just mixed it a little.

Edit: oops, someone beat me to it.

Yup, it was really weird because I completely did not recognize the base of the tower and the towers in the background, and lujiazui is supposed to be my most familiar place in shanghai.

Ha, there are probably no picture updates, because I doubt you could even see the building right now.
