That looks familiar

According to American designer George Hull, Oscorp Tower in the new Spiderman movie was actually inspired by Kuwait’s Al Hamra Tower. On his website George mentions the following:

“Early tower design inspired by architects Skidmore, Owings and Merrill”

Skidmore, Owings and Merrill are the architectural firm behind Al Hamra Tower. So that’s basically Al Hamra Tower in Spiderman. Very cool.

I was screaming at the theater each time when I saw the Oscorp tower
“THIS IS HAMRA TOWER” ! No one bothered !

thats not the first time.

pictures of Um-Alaish destroyed satellite dishes after the liberation with skies covered with oil were inspiration to scenes from the movie
Terminator Salvation (2009). They even state that on the behind the scenes included on the bluray disc.
