"Basin City" is set in an unspecified, fictional city in the American west according to various sources. Though he has never said it's based on a particular city, given Frank Miller's love of noir (Hollywood influence) and the genesis of the comic during the "gritty" 1990s while he was living in Los Angeles, it's likely that Los Angeles was the model. Los ...

From GVSHP: No. 90 Bedford Street, on the southeast corner of Bedford and Grove Streets, stood-in as the exterior of her building. In the ground floor of their building was the coffee shop, Central Perk, where the gang spent the other half of their time. There is a ground floor food establishment at 90 Bedford, but Central Perk is a little ...

As Wikipedia says, the actual Lake House was built from scratch for the movie and had to be deconstructed after filming. According to this article this was apparently part of the conditions for using Maple Lake in Willow Springs, Illinois as its location, to leave the place in the exact same condition they found it (though, they actually built a new fishing ...

From interviews with director Christopher Nolan, it would appear that the goal was to create a non-specific setting (the film was actually shot in Pittsburgh and LA as well as New York and New Jersey), that felt both "operatic" and real. From an interview with James Rocchi at MSN Entertainment: MSN Movies: You knew you were doing a third film. Is the ...

The Majority of the externals and locations for the Show are filmed in Portland, Oregon (particularly the city-scapes). The studio's in which CW film both The Flash and Arrow are based in Vancouver, and some minor externals are filmed there aswell (anything casual and unimpressive; not to sleight Vancouver, at all!). Both shows actually construct their ...

No, they are not the same place. According to this site, Poltergeist was filmed in Agoura Hills. Another page on the same site indicates that the street where they take off on the bike (I assume that's the one you're thinking of) is filmed in Granada Hills. As a semi-related piece of trivia I found on that same site, in the Charlie's Angel's remake ...

Neesson during a roundtable interview with a number of other journalists. During the group interview Neeson talked about how the sequel came together, what it was like filming in Istanbul. They set it in Istanbul and he thought, ok that’s certainly one city I would love to see. What surprised you the most about working in Istanbul? Either the under ...

Not even close. The bulk of Sokovia scenes were film in the UK. As a superhero film with big budget and big action, The Avengers: Age of Ultron needed a large amount of outdoor space with a high degree of flexibility in which to construct their exact and closed-off worlds. The Peel Training Centre at the Hendon Police College was perfectly suited for ...

It's a real place in Albuquerque called "Twisters": So many of Breaking Bad’s filming locations in Albuquerque, New Mexico have become iconic and none more so than Twisters, which played home to Gus Fring’s crystal meth front, Los Pollos Hermanos. See the source article for more information.

There are actually incentives for filming in the city of Pittsburgh that have nothing to do with being a sports fan. Dawn Keezer, Pittsburgh Film Office Director states that Hollywood is enticed into filming in the city because of the $75 million tax incentive program that was introduced in 2004. However, she is quick to point out that a tax incentive was ...

According to the wiki page for this film: Airport terminal scenes were filmed in Worcester, Massachusetts at Worcester Regional Airport. As is it extremely common for filmmakers to replace locations with 'better looking' ones (or for tax breaks) - just look at all of the Mission:Impossible 4 scenes set in India (really Canada) - I suspect they shot Knight ...

The credits for locations do not list any Maryland locations. However, since there's no indications of how those locations were used, it would be difficult to identify what locations were used to represent UM, short of finding someone who actually recognizes the specific places.

They do to an extent. They are both filmed in Vancouver and share some of the same sets and production teams. This is apparent with places like the coffee shop: Arrow: The Flash: But Oliver Queen's mayoral headquarters (taken from Youtube) and Flash's CCPD building (taken from YouTube) are not the same (Notice the windows): Having a quick look ...

It is very similar and I thought the same thing when I watched it. But I found this article, which explains that, while closely modelled after it, it's not the real Farnsworth house, but a newly constructred house in Orion Township, Michigan about 40 miles north of Detroit. Which also answers the question about the lake location, as it was constructed ...

This article from Hollywood contends that it was probably scheduling conflicts (Colbert films his show in NY while The Office originates in Van Nuys, CA). Reporter Michael Arbeiter suggests it is a sure sign your show is running dry when the guest stars don't even show up in person! If you think about it, though, if you wanted to contact someone you knew in ...

Yes, definitely. You can see the Galata bridge (which connects Eminönü and Karaköy) very often, and the Eminönü district in the background with its Mosques..e.g. when they are on the ferryboat..and there will be also a guy selling Turkish tea on those ferryboats (www.sehirhatlari.com.tr). But I actually never saw a Mercedes cab there, and I think they used ...

I think it's actually Asilah, Morocco. It says it was filmed there but depicts Greece.

It doesn't appear that they were filmed at the same place. Astronaut Farmer was filmed in New Mexico, at the Bonanza Creek Ranch: . Other films shot here include: Cowboys and Aliens Appaloosa 3:10 to Yuma Transformers on the other hand doesn't credit the Ranch. Whilst I can't find the exact location it's barn was filmed in, it doesn't appear to have ...

OK, decided to look into the BlueRay extras and found it. According to Blue Ray Extra #14: "The Beginning of the End", the house was not actually in Scotland. It was designed and filmed in Hankley Common, in Surrey, England. Screenshots from ~3:15 min into the Extra:

Somewhere between most: The biopic promises to be an authentic portrayal of Escobar, so it’s only natural that Brazilian director and executive producer Jose Padilha chose to film the 10-episode series in Medellin, Colombia, the murder capital of the world during the drug kingpin’s heyday in the 1980s. Filming the series here would have been ...

Accoring to this article from the BBC; Our best estimate after calculating plane speed, car speed and simultaneous action sequences is that the runway is 18.37 miles (29.6km) long. Which is still very long when you consider the longest paved runway in the world is the Qamdo Bamda airport in China, at around 3.5 miles (5.6km). The full article goes into ...
