Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it
Found an interesting piece on Tumblr via Expederest; who has been following the set in Greenwich for quite some time. He posted the following about some things he learned from the set.
All the rubble and stuff is from a spaceship that crashes into the grounds. It’ll be added with CGI later on. So will more of the damage caused by the crash. The wing also destroys the pillars on the left, that are covered with blue (which is pretty obvious now…)
Not sure when [the alleged pic of Kurse] was taken but I was there last Wednesday (14th November) and they were filming a scene with Malekith and the elves. I could of got a video of it, but I was in the chapel and wasn’t really sure on the whole camera business at the time.
But I can tell you that it was Malekith leading an army of elves over the rubble, which is where the ship would of crash landed. I think Thor (or maybe Malekith? Didn’t know he was filming until I saw pictures later) was saying something but I couldn’t make anything out.
On Monday, they were filming a scene that was supposed to be set outside Charing Cross underground station. I assumed this meant that Greenwich was just doubling for other areas as normal. However, it’s actually also doubling for itself! From what I remember, there are two worlds occupying the same space, and it has something to do with the Prime Meridian Line (or timeline as the guy insisted on calling it. Significant because I read something about time travel?). You know. The line at which time is measured (known as Greenwich Mean Time). There were trailers in Greenwich Park next to Greenwich Observatory, which has that lovely photo opportunity of standing on both the east and west of the world. So the whole “two worlds blending together” thing could be true. I vaguely remember them saying it has a mystical or magical aspect about it…Anyone know if they filmed at the observatory or not?
At the moment, they’re filming all the stunts, and I’ve read that lasts until Sunday somewhere. But a security guard said that they are still filming up until Wednesday, so what does that mean? Maybe the main actors are coming back to film anything left over? That is speculation by the way. I’m no expert in film production so I don’t know what that means.
