An explosive shootout scene takes place inside New York's famous Guggenheim Museum. The production team used the Guggenheim's original blueprints to build a full-size replica of its interior in an abandoned locomotive warehouse. Construction took 4 months.
Originally scheduled for release in August 2008. After badly-received previews, and re-shoots to turn it into more of an action film, it was released in February 2009, during the worst banking crisis in U.S. history.
