No, it's not a riot in Honolulu. This carnage was staged as part of the opening scene of Bruce Willis' upcoming movie, in which parts of downtown will double as a riot scene and a presidential palace in Nigeria. King Street in front of the King Kamehameha Statue and adjacent streets were closed yesterday to traffic to film the scene. A fake gate and fence were constructed in front of the statue and will be taken down after filming is complete. To simulate the riot scene, this burning bus and car, above, were placed on King Street in front of Kawaiahao Church.
