X Men: First Class

This started as a concept for a matte painting of an elevated view of a 1950's Las Vegas, dramatically less developed than today. It was to be based on a daytime photo seen in the top roll-over. However, the consistent thing between now and then is that all the names of the casinos remain the same, and each of them carry copyright issues when used in movie production. To have removed them was deemed impractical for the purpose of the storyline. The matte painting idea was dropped after several iterations to get around this issue.
