Obviously it is not about the strait but the bridge that covers it – and obviously it is again going to be on the ‘celluloid screen’.
I may be wrong here in judging the prop in the scene but I would like to think I am right – that another movie scene has written the iconic ‘Golden Gate Bridge’ off – blowing it again – in fact annihilating it.
And it happens time and again – be it an apocalyptic script or a theme or a simple larger than life thrilling adventure.
The thought came to my mind while watching trailer of ‘X Men: Apocalypse‘.
I think it was the Golden Gate Bridge that was shown to go down in the trailer and here we need to keep this in mind that in another ‘X Men’ film, i.e., ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’, we had seen some similar treatment with the bridge, though, with a moderate spectacle.
I have seen it so many times – and so have others – the 1937 bridge coming down with a big, thunderous blast, huge clouds of dust and smoke and lots of chutzpah in movies with apocalyptic times or movies that show the Golden Gate Bridge facing critical destruction of climactic scenes as it was in Godzilla.
And after this trailer, continuing this random thought, I think I will write a larger piece on the subject (:)) with some proper research. 🙂
