City: Los Angeles
Also Destroyed In: The Day After Tomorrow; 10.5 Apocalypse; and Dragon Wars: D-War

The U.S. Bank Tower is the tallest building in Los Angeles, which is about as impressive as saying you're the best MC in Linkin Park. While Chicago and New York have four taller buildings a piece, the U.S. Bank Tower is just so damn convenient for Hollywood folks. So, when Michael Bay, Roland Emmerich, or whatever director of douchey action epics, is sitting around plotting their next bit, someone can just say, “Fuck it, let's do the Bank Tower again. It's right down the street, and I know the sickest panini spot next door.”
