Downtown Filming: A Phantom Menace

A few weeks ago while taking a jaunt into downtown we came across the Mission Impossible III set which had taken over parts of Flower Street between 3rd and 5th. The area had been transformed via street signage (above), typical Chinese street furniture, and various modes of transport including cars and bikes, into a street straight out of Beijing. Chinese flags even hung from the Westin Bonaventure. Over the weekend, Celia at 5th and Spring blogged on the filming of Spiderman III in her building, keeping residents' spidey senses tingling until 4am.

Above, a picture from the Spider-Man Official Movie site of Thomas Hayden-Church, playing villain Sandman. Anyone able to identify where this photo was taken?
