Last update: November, 13th 2010


HK is not only an essential trading hub and tourist magnet in Asia but also a cinegenic place appreciated by a great many filmmakers from all over the world. Kill Bill, Spy Game, You Only Live Twice , to name but a few, had scenes shot in HK. (Map of the area)

The HSBC Main Building / 滙豐總行大廈
NEW

Location: The HSBC Main Building, 1 Queen's Road, Central, Hong Kong Island 滙豐總行大廈 皇后大道中1號
Film: Spy Game 諜戰 (2001, USA) / Dir: Tony Scott

 

香 港滙豐總行大廈,是香港上海滙豐銀行有限公司的總辦事處,座落於皇后大道中1號。
現在的總行大廈已是第四代,於1986年4月7日正式啟用。這座總行大廈
由著名建築師Norman Foster設計, 由構思到落成需時6年時間。
整個設計的特色在於內部並無任何支撐結構,可自由拆卸。
所有支撐結構均設於建築物外部,使樓面實用空間更 大。
大廈共耗資52億港元建成,是當時全球最昂貴的建築物。在電影《諜戰》(Spy Game) 中,
滙豐總行大廈化身成美國領事館,為美國對華的情報指揮中心。


The HSBC Main Building serves as the current head office of HSBC in Hong Kong. It is located at 1 Queen’s Road in Central and was put into use on 7th April 1986. It was considered the most expensive building in the world at that time --it cost HKD 5.2 billion. Designed by renowned architect Norman Foster, who kept the 1997 HK handover in mind while conceiving the building, the HSBC headquarter contains no internal support structure. The idea was that it could be dismantled at any time if needed, especially after the China takeover of the city in 1997.
In Spy Game, the HSBC Main Building is dressed as the U.S Consulate and the U.S. intelligence command center in China.

International Finance Centre, Tower 2 / 國際金融中心二期

Location: Central, HONG KONG
Films: Batman - The Dark Knight
Lara Croft Tomb Raider : The Cradle Of Life (2003)/ Dir: Jan de Bont

蝙蝠俠黑夜之神 / Dir: Christopher Nolan
香港的最高大廈〈將會被西九龍的International Commercial Centre, ICC所取代〉。《The Dark Knight》的Batman及《Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life》的Lara Croft也曾在大廈的天台
飛躍而下。

This is the highest skyscraper of HK (soon to be supplanted by the International Commercial Centre). Batman in The Dark Knight and Lara Croft in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life flied over the city from this building.

Ladder Street X Square Street

Location: Central, HONG KONG
Film: The World of Suzie Wong (UK, 1960) 苏丝黄的世界/ Dir: Richard Quine

Nam Kok Hotel in the film is supposed to be in Wanchai, the centre for prostitution in the 1960s HK. In truth the location chosen for the shooting was at the crossroad between Ladder Street and Square Street, near the Man Mo Temple, between Central and the Mid-levels.
The World of Suzie Wong
is one of the few excellent movies shot in HK by a foreign crew in the 1960s. Nancy Kwan here is just icing as Suzie Wong, a mystic character that appeared in a string of films. Suzie Wong not only captured the collective consciousness of Westerners, but also of Asian people. She lent her name to a Beijing club, a London and a New York bar, a Japanese comic-book heroine, a Singaporean apparel brand, and even a fancy cocktail.
