So I saw the movie Eagle Eye today this afternoon I noticed that the arrivals level of T2 at LAX made a prominent appearance for the "Dayton Airport" and in various resulting "airport" scenes I saw a exit stairway that looked a lot like the ones for ONT's new terminal -- possibly LAX, though as I don't have the foggiest what airside at anything buy 5/6/7/8 looks like, last time I was in 4 was 3+ years ago, longer for 2 and never for 1 or 3
There were a couple TSA/airport terminal scenes that looked familiar (first thought was landside at TBIT) but it was so completely generic I would expect that it was a soundstange somewhere.
Chases across the ramp and under a breezeway had a lot of NW-branded LDs visible (so not ONT) and I think I caught a glimpse of something wearing hte US livery (but it was darn quick) which would make sense if it was shot at T2...but it also seems unlikely that they would shoot on an active ramp, especially when LAWA has made it clear, IIRC, that they prefer filming to take place at ONT.
Anyone else see this film and recognize an airport &/or can confirm my guesses?

The film crew spent about a week and a half out at the DHL March Air Force Base Hub in Riverside, CA. I have not seen the movie but I do know that the one scene on commercials of people running to a C-17 was shot at the DHL sort building. When I left work one Saturday morning the USAF brought that plane over to our ramp. Wow that was just a week before I was laid off.
