Mega-nerd Protohiro compared screenshots of the exact same view of San Francisco from the Star Trek and Terminator Salvation trailers.... It's pretty striking to see the exact same shot as portrayed in two very different movies, and it underscores how different the two films' views of the future (and of technology) really are.
Okay! Which future do you want? Star Trek's?
Or Terminator Salvation's?
Man, the Golden Gate Bridge is having a hard time of late. Just this spring it got attacked in Monsters vs. Aliens.
And as pointed out elsewhere, the Golden Gate Bridge also pops up in this summer's Land of the Lost.
The Golden Gate Bridge also got all effed up in ye olde crappy X-Men: The Last Stand, which—HOLY SHIT THIS FINALLY GIVES ME AN EXCUSE TO POST THAT FAN VIDEO SOMEONE MADE WHERE THEY SET SCENES FROM X-MEN: THE LAST STAND TO AN EVANESCENCE SONG!!!* YEESSSSSSSSS
*Thanks to the Mercury's resident Evanescence superfan, Wm. Steven Humphrey, for confirming that the song in the above video is, in fact, Evanescence.
