Instead of subway entrances, I believe they are ramps to the parking lots on Rodeo Drive:

You think its a arbitrary outline to the Ballas emblem?


I don't think so I believe it represents the map. It makes sense. You call that 'Tolling'?

Then why do you think it's the map?
There has to be a reason because it just looks like an emblem

And you can see in the horizon, behind the hills, that big thing similar to an electric pole that was also seen in other screenshots and trailers.

I wouldn't be so certain about that.

To me, the shot with the helicopter is looking east, along the highway that passes the southern edge of Downtown (see here, first image, huge east-west highway).

I don't see an interchange (junction) there...

In fact the image is looking north or norteast, this screen explains where is located, you can see part of a bridge of the LS canal and same junction...

Btw, did we ever decide on that high-rise in the background? It's visible from the oilfield, plus a few other shots. Below, the side we're seeing is facing west.

Also, that church should have a real life counterpart, no?

I've been looking for that church for almost an hour but no match so far.
Looked in Inglewood and Compton.

That highrise in the back looks like the Compton Courthouse :

this is the pic im talking about. does it look like there are a couple of tall buildings behind that hill on the south part of that hill on the east side , maybe theres more city around the corner. little bit hard to see because of fog but i reckon there is something around that hill because everytime we see screen shot of that part of the city they seem to always have fog over that part
