World Trade Center in popular culture

The World Trade Center has been featured in numerous films, as well as made appearances in many television shows, cartoons, comic books, and computer/video games.



Movies

[edit] Most notable appearances
The 1988 film, Working Girl, was filmed at 7 World Trade Center. The 1993 World Trade Center bombing forced director Brian De Palma to film scenes of Carlito's Way at Grand Central Station, instead of filming at the World Trade Center PATH station as originally planned.[1]

Date   Title   Notes   IMDB   
1973 Godspell Portions of Godspell were filmed at the top of the World Trade Center, while the building's construction was nearing completion. Scenes at the end included Victor Garber as Jesus, David Haskell as John the Baptist, and the entire cast dancing atop of the almost finished North Tower with the song, All For the Best.[2][3] [1]
1975 Three Days of the Condor Three Days of the Condor has Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) offices based in the World Trade Center.[4] James Sanders characterizes the World Trade Center and its offices as depicted in Three Days of the Condor as "a cold, anonymous, largely soulless environment...The Trade Center was not in its design a humane public place, a soulful place."[5] [2]
1976 King Kong In this version, the final scene took place at the World Trade Center, instead of the Empire State Building where the scene took place in the original film. The change was due partially to poster campaign [3] and to acknowledge that the Twin Towers had taken the Empire State Building's place as the tallest building in the world, the reason that the Empire State Building was chosen in the first place. The death of King Kong was filmed using a styrofoam stand-in, which was equipped with electrical wiring, hydraulic hoses and jacks to control its movements.[6] [4]
1978 The Wiz The 1978 film adaptation of the musical The Wiz uses the Twin Towers as the location of "The Wiz" in the Emerald City, and a musical number was shot on the plaza between the two towers.[4] [5]
1983 Trading Places The 1983 film Trading Places includes an external shot of the towers (at the plaza level) where Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy enter the COMEX commodities trading floor in 4 World Trade Center which is featured in the climax of the film.[7][8] [6]
1988 Working Girl Working Girl features the Trade Center complex in its opening sequence moving from the Staten Island Ferry to Lower Manhattan. Advertising and promotional pieces for the film also used images of the World Trade Center heavily. The film itself is set in 7 World Trade Center.[4] [7] 
1992 Home Alone 2: Lost in New York Home Alone 2: Lost in New York features the Trade Center complex after Kevin realises he's all alone in New York, he catches a taxi and arrives at the plaza and goes up to the observation deck. [8] 
1999 Stuart Little The World Trade Center can be seen when Stuart's mice parents
drive over the Brooklyn Bridge and when they are arrive at the golf course.
 
2008 Man on Wire Man on Wire is a documentary film that chronicles Philippe Petit's 1974 high-wire walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. [9]

In Madagascar 2 escape to Africa the towers show in the background when Alex gets fished out from the New York harbour


[edit] Other 1971–2001 appearances
The World Trade Center appeared in nearly any film or television shot of downtown Manhattan, since the buildings were an integral part of the skyline.

Date   Title   Notes   IMDB   
1971 The French Connection The 1971 film The French Connection shows the still under construction complex in the background during the unloading of the "drug car" in Brooklyn Heights.[9] [10]
1972 The Hot Rock The 1972 film The Hot Rock includes footage taken from a helicopter flying toward the World Trade Center, still under construction.[10] [11]
1981 Escape from New York In the 1981 film Escape from New York, the lead character lands a glider on the roof of the World Trade Center. The film also has a group of terrorists crash Air Force One into a different New York City building.[11] [12]
1982 Mazes and Monsters The 1982 made-for-television movie Mazes and Monsters includes a climactic scene at the top of the Twin Towers.[12][13] [13]
1992 Freejack In the 1992 movie Freejack, the Twin Towers are shown standing in the year 2009. In the last scene of the movie, just before the credits start rolling, the towers are seen in the background, just to the left of the 200 story tall "McCandless Building", which is located in the future fortress of Battery Park City.[14][15] [14]
1996 Independence Day In the 1996 movie Independence Day, the Trade Center appears several times in the New York skyline, as a large alien ship arrives over the city. Ironically, they are the tallest remnants of a ruined New York in a later shot with a toppled Statue of Liberty in the foreground.[7] [15]
1998 Jeans The site appears in the Tamil film, Jeans, with the lead pair, Prashanth and Aishwarya Rai, dancing inside the tower and in areas surrounding the tower. [16]
1998 Armageddon The 1998 film Armageddon At first during a normal day in New York, the Twin Towers are shown in the background. Later, a meteor shower hits New York City in the beginning in the movie. The Twin Towers are shown three times during the meteor shower. The first appearance was a low point of view from between the towers looking up as large meteors pass over the towers. The second appearance is when the New York Financial District is shown as meteors passed by, one hitting the South Tower. The third appearance is New York City after the meteor shower. The North Tower had a hole on its north side of the tower while the top of the South Tower had been partially destroyed and was on fire. As a result of the September 11, 2001 attacks, the scene showing the towers getting hit and being on fire were cut when the movie aired on ABC in April 2002.[7] [17]
2000 Kadhalar Dhinam The site appears in the Tamil film, Kadhalar Dhinam, with the lead pair, Kunal Singh and Sonali Bendre, walking around New York, with the trade centre as the backdrop of the city.
2000 Left Behind: The Movie The World Trade Center appeared in a brief scene of the New York skyline. Ironically, the story, having been set in the future, would have taken place some time after the towers' destruction in the September 11, 2001 attacks. [18]
2000 Model Behavior The World Trade Center appeared in a brief scene of the New York skyline.
2001 Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) In the 2001 Steven Spielberg film Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), the towers were shown standing in the year 2142 where global warming has flooded many cities including New York City. Then, they are seen again, in the year 4142, many years after humanity has ceased to exist, this time covered in glacial ice but were one of the few buildings standing above the ice. Less than three months after the release, the towers were destroyed in the September 11 terrorist attacks. Although risking controversy and criticism, Steven Spielberg left the towers in the DVD release.[4] [19]
2002 Spider-Man After the terrorist attacks on the United States of September 11, 2001, Sony recalled teaser posters which showed a close-up of Spider-Man's face with the New York skyline (including, prominently, the World Trade Center towers) reflected in his eyes. The movie's original trailer, released in 2001, featured a group of bank robbers on their getaway in a helicopter, which Spider-Man catches in a giant spider-web between the two towers of the World Trade Center. The trailer was pulled after the events of September 11, 2001, attacks and can be found on the internet.[16] 


[edit] Computer and video games
The 2007 computer game World in Conflict, set in 1989, revolves around the story that USSR did not collapse and the Cold War continued longer than in reality. The towers are visible in the background of the 10th mission, in which the player attempts to repel Russian Spetsnaz commandos from Liberty, Ellis and Governor's islands in an attempt to Invade the United States through New York City. The Towers are also prominently visible in one of the Trailers showcasing the invasion to show the location and time.
Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro (2001), by Activision, depicted the tops of the Twin Towers as part of the final stage, with the large radio antenna as a crucial piece to defeat the final boss, Hyper-Electro. After the 9/11 attack, the game was pulled and re-released, changing two stage titles and modifying the final stage to add a large bridge to it.[17]
In response to the events of September 11th, Microsoft announced that future versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator would not include the Twin Towers in the game's New York City skyline. A patch was also made available to remove the WTC buildings from the existing versions of the simulator.[17]
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001) and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (2002) feature a major plot on a ship going down the Hudson River, depicting the World Trade Center. The building was apparently cut from the game, delaying both games' releases.[17]
Max Payne, features the World Trade Center in several billboards, and in some of the graphic novel cut scenes. They are visible in the PC version of the game, however, they are not visible in the Playstation 2 version of the game, which was released after the terrorist attacks.
Shortly after the attacks, the now defunct Westwood Studios pulled all remaining copies of the 2000 real-time strategy game Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, whose box contained artwork of New York City under attack by invading Soviet forces; notable buildings depicted under attack included the World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty. The single player campaign of the game also contains a pair of missions in which the player was instructed to destroy The Pentagon and capture the World Trade Center as well as being able to destroy it. Westwood retooled the box art before re-releasing the game.[17]
The 1991 Arcade game King of Monsters features monsters fighting in different Destructible cities. Among them is New York City, where the Twin Towers can be Destroyed, even thrown at your enemy.
Streets of Rage, a game released in 1991 on the Sega Genesis features the Twin Towers in the background of the final boss battle, which apparently, occurs in World Trade Center 3 (otherwise known as the Vista Marriott). The towers can also be seen in Streets of Rage 2, in the second level, glowing in the background.
The 1994 action game Urban Strike, the third in the Strike series, features the scene of a giant laser deflecting from a satellite and hitting the World Trade Center's Twin Towers, thus marking the start of Mission 7, in which the player must accomplish three objectives before moving on to objective #4: rescuing 16 out of 20 NAFTA business leaders of the WTC (after hitting the radar building east of the WTC); and objective #5: disarming the time bomb in the South Tower (being careful not to cut either the green wire, as one of the members says, or the red wire). It is ironic that, although the game takes place in a fictional 2001 timeline when it was released in 1994, it would be seven years (marking the same number of the game's mission in New York City) before the actual year 2001 (i.e. September 11) would mark the damage of the Twin Towers not by a laser or time bomb, but by the planes crashing into the buildings, with its destruction rather than its survival (as in the game).
The first map of the 2000 game Deus Ex, set in 2052, encompasses Liberty Island and a bombed Statue of Liberty. The section of the New York City skyline containing the Twin Towers is absent, to reduce memory requirements for the map. The reason that the developers gave, if anyone asked, was that they had been destroyed by terrorists. "We just said that the towers had been destroyed too. And this was way before 9-11. Years. That's kind of freaky."[18]
Gundam Battle Assault 2 featured a view of a city in the opening monologue of the story mode. The Twin Towers can been seen scrolling by, though one tower had a large addition to its side.
The 2004 video game Spider-Man 2, the game adaptation of the movie, had a virtual New York City that Spider-Man could swing around in. At one spot, there is a large bit of sidewalk with two sets of eight lights arranged in a square. At night, the lights would come on, representing the Tribute in Light memorial.
The 2007 video game Spider Man 3, the final battle takes place at a construction site that bears a strong resemeblance to the North Tower, possibly the Twin Towers 2.
The 2005 video game True Crime: New York City, features a fenced in "ground zero" where all there is the concrete foundation and a blue fence surrounding it but it is inaccessible.
Driver: Parallel Lines (2006) Features the World Trade Center complex in the game's depiction of New York City in 1978. The game features a replica of the World Trade Center complex in 1978 New York City. The complex is depicted lacking the Marriott World Trade Center hotel, as it was only completed in 1981; the complex also features The Sphere, a 1967 Fritz Koenig sculpture, near the middle of the complex. However, a road cuts through what is supposed to be the center of the complex plaza. In the latter half of the game, set in New York in the year 2006, the towers are gone.
In Tycoon City: New York, the World Trade Center is paid tribute to in the form of two very tall trees standing side by side, representing the Towers. Further into the park, there is a Pentagon-shaped base, with an American Flag at half mast. An inscription on the side reads We Will Never Forget.
In the 1998 game, Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA, the entire World Trade Center complex is featured on the 'New York: Downtown' track. Buildings 1 - 6, and the western pedestrian bridge are all accessible to drive around. The stairways on both sides of the complex doubles as a jump for the racers.
In Aero Fighters 2 (1994) for the Neo-Geo, the first half of the U.S. level takes place in New York City, featuring the World Trade Center in the background. In tradition of most top-down shooters, the buildings can be destroyed by shooting them multiple times.

The real New York City skyline appears in the background including the Twin Towers, appearing closer than they actually are (In real life you couldn't see the Twin Towers from Central Park unless you are high above it). The Twin Towers (a real picture of them) appear on the movie poster, along with the Empire State Building.

[edit] 2000-present
The World Trade Center is seen in the opening of the TV-mini series the 10th Kingdom, (2000). The opening shows New York City crumbling into mountains, waterfalls and castles. The Empire State Building crumbles and turns into a mountain, the Plaza Hotel teraforms into a majestic Castle, and the Twin Towers are drawn into the ground as 7 World Trade Center disintegrates.
The 2001 movie "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within", released two months before the attacks, features several scenes of "Old New York" without the Twin Towers.
In the 2001 Steven Spielberg film Artificial Intelligence: A.I., the towers were shown standing in the year 2142 where global warming has flooded many cities including New York City. Then, they are seen again, in the year 4142, many years after humanity has ceased to exist, this time covered in glacial ice but where one of the few buildings standing above the ice. Less than three months after the release, the towers were destroyed in the September 11 terrorist attacks. Although risking controversy and criticism, Steven Spielberg left the towers in the DVD release.

[edit] Post-9/11
In the 2001 comedy Zoolander, the Twin Towers were digitally removed from one shot and obscured in another shot. Zoolander was released on September 28, 2001, a mere 17 days after the September 11th terrorist attacks.
On November 2, 2001, Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV premiered in New York City. During the following months after September 11th nearly all movies made in New York had the towers removed either by editing the footage out or digitally removing them from the frame. Lloyd Kaufman relates, in his book All I Need to Know about Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger, that he felt audiences would be able to see the Twin Towers in film without being distressed. The opening narration features the Twin Towers prominently and it is reported[who?] that the audience cheered.
In Spider-Man (2002), the towers receive a few discreet cameos throughout the movie. The film's original trailer showed a web spun by Spider-Man between the two towers and was withdrawn after the attacks, although the towers did appear briefly in Spider-man's eyes, and towards the end of the movie when he climbed up the American International Building.
The 2002 Spike Lee film 25th Hour directly incorporates the ruins of the Twin Towers. The opening credits are shown over views of the Tribute in Light, and one scene takes place at the apartment of Frank Slaughtery, which overlooks the site.
The end segments of the movie Vanilla Sky feature the Twin Towers still standing in the panoramic city background. This is plausible as the ending scene to this movie, it is revealed, is created from the lead character's memory. If he remembers the Twin Towers to still be standing, then they would still appear in the skyline.
The first 9/11 dramatization, 2002's Stairwell: Trapped In The World Trade Center, showed a number of different shots of the towers. The footage was shot in 1999 and was originally going to be used in a movie about the 1993 bombing. The movie, entitled Hellevator, was shelved after the September 11 attacks.
Martin Scorsese's 2002 film Gangs of New York, about life in New York's Five Points neighborhood in the 1860s, featured an ending sequence showing the city's skyline slowly progressing to its modern form. The final shot featured the World Trade Center restored to the skyline using computer-generated imagery. This scene also included a voiceover by one of the characters who said, (to paraphrase) "those who lived in those times would never forget what it was like."
The 2004 film Miracle, set in 1979 and 1980, features a digitally re-inserted shot of the towers just prior to the USA hockey team's exhibition game against the USSR at Madison Square Garden. Oddly, the buildings of the World Financial Center, which would not be built for several years, are also included in the shot.
In the 2004 film Spider-Man 2, the North Tower and 7 World Trade Center are briefly seen in a piece of stock footage showing the West Side Highway after Doc-Oct breaks out of the hospital. The footage is flipped horizontally, making it seem as if the skyline was viewed from the East River, the two buildings are only visible in the Wide Screen Edition. Like its predecessor, Spider-Man, both movies show the World Trade Center despite the events of 9/11.
The towers are the focus of the last shot of Steven Spielberg's 2005 film Munich. A period film ending in 1973, the towers' presence served as a reminder that the troubles in the Middle East depicted in the film had not ended by 2001, when the World Trade Center was destroyed, or by 2005, when the movie was released. Despite the movie ending in 1973, several post-1980's postmodern skyscrapers are still seen in the skyline as they would be seen today.
In the poster for the 2006 film United 93, the Twin Towers can be seen just under the Statue of Liberty's crown. As they were on 9/11, the North Tower was on fire and a plane, United Airlines Flight 175, is heading towards the South Tower. In the film itself, the towers are the last glimpse of Manhattan caught by the passengers (most notably the lead hijacker, played by Lewis Alsamari), through a plane window as the flight departs Newark International Airport. While the intact complex was digitally re-inserted into the skyline, its destruction was shown through actual news footage.
The 2006 remake of the horror classic The Omen had a few screenshots of 9/11 as well as the 2004 Tsunami and the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster.
The 2006 movie Click, starring Adam Sandler, features a futuristic wedding scene with a futuristic version of the Twin Towers in the background, which was actually two Freedom Towers, the final design for the main tower of the new World Trade Center.
Oliver Stone directed World Trade Center (released on August 9, 2006), the first feature-length film about the attacks on the Twin Towers themselves. It stars Nicolas Cage as Port Authority police officer John McLoughlin, one of the first men called to the scene of the 9/11 attacks. This movie has received much controversy, just like United 93. Although it's the second film about the September 11th attacks to be released to theaters (following United 93), it is the first dramatic non-documentary film based on 9/11.
Pakistani director Shoaib Mansoor directed the movie Khuda Ke Liye (In the name of God) released on July 20, 2007. The movie revolves around a Pakistani young man who goes to the US for higher education. During his study years, the event of 9/11 takes place where the World Trade Center is turned into dust. In a long array of investigations and arrests, the young man gets arrested by the American authorities.
The 2007 movie The Kingdom, the opening sequence revolves around the history of U.S. involvement in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including Terrorist Attacks during the 90's. A map is shown during the sequence showing America as the #1 Oil consumer in 2000, America rises like a bar graph and soon turns into the South Tower of the World Trade Center, with United Airlines Flight 175 heading torwards it. The screen blanks and quickly shows the Island of Manhattan with the World Trade Center site on fire.
The 2007 movie We Own the Night, features a scene in which Mark Wahlberg and Joaquin Phoenix have a discussion in a NYPD station in Brooklyn and the World Trade Center Towers can been seen behind them through a window. The film takes place in 1988, 13 years before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The 2008 movie Definitely, Maybe takes place in 1992 New York City, an aerial view of Manhattan is shown with the Twin Towers edited in place, although the reconstructed 7 World Trade Center can be seen despite it being completed in 2006.
In the 2008 movie, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa when baby Alex arrives in New York, he looks out of his crate and sees the pre-9/11 skyline, meaning he came to New York before September 11, 2001.

[edit] Television
Late 1980s airings of Late Night with David Letterman featured an opening helicopter shot with the camera view flying into the facade of one of the towers, inside and through the offices of one floor, then back out. The Twin Towers were also prominently featured in the intro of the Late Show with David Letterman up until September 11. Afterwards, shots of the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building were used.
The opening credits of the sitcom "Barney Miller" begin with a shot of the New York City skyline, with the World Trade Center prominently featured.
During the last two seasons of the sitcom The Wayans Bros., shots of each cast member are shown with images of various NYC landmarks in the background during the opening sequence, including the WTC, Times Square, and the Statue of Liberty (with Shawn's face imposed on the statue).
In an episode of the sitcom Full House, (1987 – 1995) Stephanie is at home waiting for her date for a school dance to pick her up. She suddenly starts playing with some building blocks and eventually makes the Manhattan skyline. When Danny (Bob Saget) enters and sees what she's made, he comments' "The New York skyline. Wow, the World Trade Center looks as tall as ever."
in a December 1991 episode of Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (game show), the Double Trouble twins actually steal the World Trade Center.
The Twin Towers made one very brief appearance in the Family Matters (1989 – 1998) episode "Fa La La La Laagghh!" After Carl turned on the Christmas light decoration on the Winslow's house, a malfunction (thanks to Steve?) results in a power outage. First, the Winslow's home goes out, then a row of family homes, then Lower Manhattan, and finally, the entire world. Steve then says "Look what you did."
The ABC series Sports Night (1998 – 2000) often used an establishing shot of the New York skyline in which the Twin Towers were the focal point, implying that the studios were in the Towers.
The pilot of the TV series The Lone Gunmen, first aired March 4, 2001, had the gunmen thwarting a plot to fly a jet into the World Trade Center. In the episode, a faction of the U.S. government is behind the plot; they hope to blame the attack on another country's dictator and use it as an excuse to start a war with him. Transcript of pilot episode
In the Northern Exposure episode The Quest, Dr Joel Fleischman returns to New York. He's standing at the rail of the Staten Island Ferry which is covered in fog. As the fog clears, the Twin Towers become visible in the distance. Cable channel A&E aired this episode (the second-to-last NX episode A&E aired) on Thursday, September 13, 2001.
The opening credits of the first three seasons of the HBO mob drama The Sopranos (1999 – 2007) featured a shot of the World Trade Center as seen from the rear view mirror of Tony Soprano's SUV, as he enters the New Jersey Turnpike. In later seasons, after 9/11, the sequence was replaced with a new view of the Manhattan skyline in which the World Trade Center is absent. Among the things Tony later discloses to his psychiatrist Jennifer Melfi as contributing to his depression is "this whole 9/11 thing."
The TV series Third Watch, (1999 – 2005) set in New York, featured many shots of the Towers during the show's first 2 seasons. One final shot appeared in the episode September 10th, set the day before the attacks.
Sex and the City, another HBO original series, also showed a quick shot of the World Trade Center in its opening credits (with the name of its lead actress, Sarah Jessica Parker). For seasons 5 and 6, shown after 9/11, the visual was changed to a stylized shot of the Empire State Building.[3]
Several shots of the Twin Towers appear in the introduction and several establishing shots of New York City, some episodes, all including the Twin Towers, for Friends (1994–2004) over the first seven seasons (1994–2001). Pictures of the Manhattan Skyline featuring the WTC also feature on many DVD cases, and DVD Box Set cases. [3] As every season the Opening sequence slightly changes with a new shot of the skyline with the title card, some seasons showed the Twin Towers, others the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. Later seasons after 9/11 still briefly showed the Towers, the original and main title card used for later seasons has a portion of both towers visible, yet they are not very obvious. The last episode (2004) even included one of the most common seen pieces of stock footage, a shot of Lower Manhattan in the late afternoon under the Brooklyn Bridge, this time, cut only panning as far as the South Tower. As of 2007 the Twin Towers are still shown in establishing shots throughout earlier seasons and have not been edited out.
In the early 2000s The Twins appeared in an animated skyline including various United States skyscrapers in a commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. The Towers where however represented as cylinders instead of their true rectangular shapes.
An Anheuser-Busch advertisement for Budweiser beer features the company's signature Clydesdale horses appearing to pay their respects to the tower-less New York skyline. It was aired just once, during the broadcast of the 2002 Super Bowl [20].
In Eurosport`s Olympic Magazine commercial, few seconds of beginning of north tower collapse are shown.
In Star Trek: Enterprise, (2001 – 2005) an image of the Twin Towers burning was visible in a panorama of historical images present in the timestream, when Daniels informed Jonathan Archer that time had been altered and set back on course. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")
The 2003 HBO miniseries Angels in America (which takes place in the late 1980s) is noteworthy as being the first major post-9/11 production to digitally insert the towers in the New York City skyline.
The 2004 World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) PPV, WrestleMania XX had a model version of the future of New York City in the early going of the PPV, in which included the currently under construction Freedom Tower for what it may look like when it's complete, sending out a message to the Spirit of New York.
In Rescue Me's (2004 – present) first season, the main character of Tommy Gavin has several flashbacks to 9/11, both before and after the towers fall. In addition, 9/11 is mentioned through the entire season as four firefighters were lost on that day. One of them appears in almost every episode as a vision to Tommy. Also, Rescue Me takes credit as the first and (as of July 2006), the only TV show to show a dramatized depiction of the events of 9/11.
In a 2005 episode of Lost the Twin Towers are seen out of the window of a New York solicitor's office. They were digitally inserted to show the time frame of then and the present day.
In a first season episode of Journeyman the Twin Towers are seen in picture on the front page of a San Francisco newspaper when the main character goes back in time before the terrorist attacks.
The 2005-2006 Portuguese soap opera Tempo de Viver devoted its entire first episode to a diamond heist in a South Tower corporate office, and subsequent confrontation when the would-be thief is caught, being violently interrupted by Flight 11 crashing into the North Tower. The characters involved then scramble to leave the burning building after it is also struck, but one of them does not survive and a great deal of plot is later devoted to his widow seeking revenge and/or compensation, as well as to the ultimate fate of the diamonds. Fictional footage of the attack as seen from the interior of the office was digitally created, but stock footage was also used for the scene itself and latter flashbacks.
2007-present, 7 World Trade Center's facade is used as the preface to scenes in ABC's Dirty Sexy Money for the office of Patrick "Tripp" Darling III.
In 2008, early in the pilot episode of ABC's new drama Life on Mars the World Trade Center buildings are shown for a dramatic setting as proof that the main character is in 1973. The premise of the show is that the main character is a detective from 2008 who has been transported, somehow, back to 1973.

[edit] Cartoons and anime
In the Disney animated film, Oliver and Company, the World Trade Center is seen in the opening sequence.
In the 1985 cartoon M.A.S.K., an episode entitled "Attack on Liberty" leads Matt Trakker to Miles Mayhem's current hideout - 3/4 of the way up the side of the North Tower. Hovering the Thunderhawk outside the window, Matt leaps through the window and confronts Miles, who later escapes and is pursued by Matt around the Statue of Liberty. Mayhem's plot circulated around destroying the Statue and creating a 9/11--style incident
In the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon the WTC often is seen. One of the most infamous incidents in the series is the episode "Enter: The Fly", which begins with the TMNT flying in their blimp over New York City, searching for Shredder. April O'Neil said that Shredder was seen on the roof on one of the two WTC buildings, and the TMNT find Shredder and Baxter Stockman there. However, Shredder and Baxter Stockman manage to escape.
In the same series, during the finale of season three, The Big Blow Out, as The Technodrome rampages through New York, Krang uses the Trade Center Towers as the basis of a conduit that will transmit enough energy to propel the Earth itself into Dimension X, with Krangs spacefleet waiting to destroy New York City.
In the 1994 animated series Gargoyles the Twin Towers are seen in a few episodes as well as the 3rd Season Opening of The Goliath Chronicles.
In the 1997 episode of The Simpsons (season 9) entitled The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson, Homer is forced to deal with a mountain of parking tickets issued while his car sat illegally for months in the plaza of the WTC. Particular comic relief is provided when Homer, desperately needing to use the restroom, pushes people out of his way to get a ticket to the elevator into the towers and after pushing other people out of the elevator line to get to the elevator to ride to top of the South Tower only to discover the only working bathroom is in the North Tower, which he took the elevator for. You can see this because when Homer is going up the towers you can clearly hear the elevator rising and dinging at the top of both towers. Also in the episode, two men in opposite towers begin arguing with each other, which was tipped off after one proclaimed, "Sorry, they put all the jerks in Tower One", a line which the show's creators expressed deep regret at during the post 9/11 episode commentary on the season 9 boxset. A man apparently residing a few floors above the brawling men (as evidenced by a clothesline strung across the towers) finally yells at them to shut up. This episode has been banned from showing in many countries, but is included in the season 9 boxset. However, some FOX affiliates continued to show the episode in syndication, including New York City's own WNYW Fox 5 airing the unaltered episode less than two weeks after the towers' collapses.

In New New York City, A future version of the Twin Towers appear in the futuristic skyline, similar to the originals but with skybridges. After 9/11 the Towers remained.
In the special episode "The Tower Country" of Kino's Journey (2005), the plot revolves around a tower which collapses in a similar way as the first of the Twin Towers.
The Animated Sitcom Family Guy episode entitled A Picture Is Worth a 1,000 Bucks, Peter does a musical number with Meg across NYC, which had the Twin Towers. During the musical, Peter jumps off one of the towers and goes into match cut.
In the 2002 Family Guy episode Brian Wallows and Peter's Swallows Brian performs a musical number to Pearl on how America has changed since the 1950s. Many cut scenes show places around the U.S., including a shot of the Twin Towers. When the episode Aired in 2002 on FOX the two towers were digitally erased, or technically, shortened. Other airings of this episode elsewhere show the Twin Towers intact. Also in the episode Baby Not Onboard Peter and the family minus Stewie visit Ground Zero.

[edit] Comic books
Adventures of Superman #596 was released one day after the September 11, 2001 attacks. It depicted Metropolis after an alien attack, including Lex Luthor's twin LexTowers heavily damaged. The artist, Mike Wieringo remarked, "The book was completed months ago. The ironic thing is that the damage done by the terrorists is far greater than I could ever portray visually."[20] The book's writer, Joe Casey, could not have intentionally referenced the attacks on the World Trade Center, but DC acknowledged that it mirrored the devastation so vividly that they made the books returnable without penalty to retailers. Many retailers took DC up on this offer, causing the issue to become sought after on the secondary market due to its rarity and general curiosity towards the real-life synchronicity with the 9-11 attacks.
In 1982 Fantastic Four #242-243, the Fantastic Four fight Terrax in a battle atop the World Trade Center.
In 1985 The Uncanny X-Men #189 continued the alternate vision of the future first seen in the Days of Future Past storyline. Rachel Summers (who came from the future), while describing the dire future of the early 21st century, says "The twin towers of World Trade Center lie in ruins. Thousands are dead, many more injured". The accompanying image is of a somewhat futurized Twin Towers smouldering, after having been hit by an unknown attack.

Most of the Marvel Comics heroes reside in New York City, so views of the towers was not uncommon. Amazing Spider-Man (vol. 2) issue 36 showed the aftermath of the Tower's collapse through the eyes of the heroes, more specifically, Spider-Man's. Captain America (vol. 4) issue 1 had Steve Rogers arguing with Nick Fury when the former decided to stay and find survivors before heading to Afghanistan.
Issue #1 of Valiant Comics's Game Boy comic series had two teenagers going through Manhattan Island, aiding Mario in rescuing Princess Daisy from the villainous Tatanga, the story concluding at the Windows of the World restaurant.
In the Aliens: Outbreak graphic novel, Hicks and Newt escape from a mental hospital using "Jet Rescue technology". It was "developed after the World Trade Center Smoked in '24".
Marvel Comics Marvel Graphic Novel #17 depicts the Living Monolith standing almost as tall as the World Trade Center and thrusting his giant fist through one of the towers.

I often find myself looking for the World Trade Center in movies. This page lists movies I found that have the twin towers of the World Trade Center in them. I created this web site as a tribute to the WTC. Since 9/11, whenever I see the towers in an old movie, I am reminded of that day when the world changed for all of America. Now that the towers are gone, seeing them brings back all the feelings of loss we all shared that day. But they also remind me of everything that makes America great in the first place.
The towers were opened for occupancy in 1970 and dedicated in April, 1973. They were then destroyed by terrorists on September 11, 2001. Since the towers stood for only about 30 years, there are only so many movies that they appeared in. Many of these movies show the towers in the background, just in passing. Other movies feature the towers in more depth or are even a scene location vital to the story. I have personally viewed each of these movies, specifically looking for the towers. You can be assured that all sightings of the WTC towers are accurate. Click on each title for more information.

I'm sure this list is not quite complete. (Although it is the most extensive list I've seen on the Internet.) I am still finding movies I've never seen before that have the WTC in them, even if just for a few seconds.
