Esplanade and Jarvis

Cosmopolis (2012)
Exterior Basketball Scene
Esplanade and Jarvis

Following his encounter with the pie protester, Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) and his bodyguard Torval (Kevin Durand) wander to a nearby basketball court, near the St. Lawrence Market on the Esplanade. There, Packer murders Torval with his own high-tech weapon. While the film is set in Manhattan, the building facades of Lower Jarvis Street and the CN Tower in the background betray the scene’s Toronto location.

This basketball court near Toronto's St. Lawrence Market was fenced in to look like a Manhattan park in Cosmopolis. A basketball court in Manhattan is about to become the scene of a crime in Cosmopolis.
