Featured Animal Action

In two scenes, police officers with bomb-sniffing dogs on leashes search the United Nations building. Trainers handed the dogs to the actors before filming began, and the dogs walked and sniffed around naturally. In another brief scene, an extra walks a dog on a leash. This action was achieved in the same way.
