I too think this is a move for the better.
Revisionism should be kept minimal at all costs, and I'm actually surprised that a big studio is willing to not back away like this, especially with a high profile flick like Spiderman.
True, the twin towers are featured prominently in Vanilla Sky, but I believe there was different kind of change made to the film that was due to the events of 9/11.
In Abre Los Ojos, (the film Vanilla Sky is based on), the main character shoots and kills a police officer towards the end of the film. According to the IMDB, the trailer shows Tom Cruise firing a gun, but this does not appear in the final film. Could it be that since the NYPD is now held in high esteem due to their actions during the terrorist attacks, Cameron Crowe decided to cut this part out at the last minute?
According to my friend working on Spidey, the towers are barely in the film as it is. Most of the action takes place in Times Square or other areas of NYC inside the concrete jungle, where seeing the towers would be difficult at best.
After having visited Sony Imageworks a couple months ago, they've digitallly removed any brief sign of the twin towers. Since the movie is coming out after the TT fell, It would be more accurate since the movie is to be considered "modern day"
According to my friend, they're still there in dailies as recent as 3 weeks ago the last time I asked him about it.
Or the bridge scene in "Die Hard with a Vengeance".
Funny you should mention this since I was just talking with someone about this. The ending of Die Hard 3 was so unbelieveably lame. The whole concept was to use New York as the backdrop of an intricate puzzle-like plot but then the finale takes place on the Canadian border and was actually shot in Baltimore. How lame! If the ending couldn't have involved a huge New York landmark like the Empire State Building or the WTC (sigh) then the movie shouldn't have been made at all.
