Behind the ScenesEdit
- The digital particle fire elements designed to match pyrotechnician Joseph Viskocil's miniature explosions was used for the wide shot of the expanding blast ring in Los Angeles.
- The ruins of Los Angeles were shot at the Kaiser Steel mill in Fontana, California, the location used for the post-apocalyptic terrain at the beginning of Terminator 2 (1991). Clay Pinney and his practical effects team spent two weeks dressing the location with propane fires, broken fire hydrants and burnt-out cars prior to filming. They also created a two-hundred-foot wall of smoke to hide the undamaged buildings in the background.
