Edge of Tomorrow (2014, Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt)


Noisy and entertaining Americanised version of a Japanese anime tale. An extra point for spotting the RAF Benson based Puma helicopter flying into Trafalgar Square, but this dystopian present shows Heathrow Airport turned into a military base, served by red London buses that are never seen clearly. Bodywork is by Wright and it's a fair bet they're Volvo B7TLs, although confirmation would be welcomed, also how many were used, because although as many as five appear in the background at one point, I'm guessing CGI was involved.
The only close view is of the advertising on the side of one bus, featuring Emily Blunt's character, the 'Full Metal Bitch' AKA 'The Angel of Verdun':
