The Year 2154. Humanity is Divided. Between Two Worlds. We Live on Earth. The Privileged Live on Elysium. No Poverty. No War. No Sickness. Elysium’s new trailer with Matt Damon kicking ass is a great advertisement for the Grouse Grind up Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver, where Damon honed his time to about 43 minutes a climb two summers ago. He looks buff and action-ready as he fights his way from a ruined earth into the privileged world of space station Elysium ruled by the likes of Jody Foster’s head of the Elysium Corporate Authority. The scene of a spaceship crashing in an Elysium garden looks spectacular next to the reality of the bluescreen filming on the vast Kent Hangar [...]

On June 19th, Legendary Pictures shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Godzilla filming in Vancouver. I took a photo of what could be another radioactive containment door on Kent Hangar field near Boundary Road on June 16th (three days earlier), but didn’t know what I was photographing. It looked like a bank vault from my perspective. ****************************************************************************************************************************
