Dramatic Finish To Belfast’s ‘Killing Bono’

As Killing Bono prepares to wrap in Belfast, N Ireland, today the Belfast Telegraph published an article describing one of the final scenes shot for the film, which took place at the Belfast city centre last night. The article also includes a new photo from the set, which has been added to the gallery!

The sounds of car crashing and classic U2 tunes reverberated around Belfast city centre last night — as the final scenes of the movie Killing Bono were shot in Belfast.

With Joshua Tree LP adverts, retro wear and vintage cars, Royal Avenue, Library Street and Little Donegall Street were made over to look like 1980s Dublin.

During almost six hours of filming, the Belfast crew captured what one insider described as “the biggest scene in the film”.

At around 11pm last night the film’s main character McCormick, played by Ben Barnes, was filmed racing to the Frames Complex in search of Bono.

Unfortunately he doesn’t make it, instead smashing into a parked car outside the venue.

Location manager Andrew Wilson described last night’s filming as “action-packed”.

He said: “These scenes make up the penultimate scenes of the film.

“They are crucial to the overall theme and are very exciting. We are, as you can see, taking over much of Royal Avenue.”

I saw the recently added photos from the Dorian Gray still in Toranto, but wanted to know if there are any originals? The ones posted look like someone messed with them in photoshop. Are their bigger versions? If so, can’t wait to see them!

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to get ahold of those TIFF portraits in high quality but I will definitely add better versions if/when I am able to. :)
