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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

According to wikipedia: The film was shot in twelve locations in three countries: Canada, the United States, and Argentina. In Canada, filming took place in Calgary and Fortress Mountain in Alberta, and at Squamish and Mammoth Studios, Burnaby, in British Columbia.While the initial plan was to film entirely in Canada, the weather was ultimately ...

In addition to Andrew Martin's answer: The set used for the appartment of John Diggle (Arrow) is the same as that of Patty Spivot (Flash) Diggle's appartment Patty's appartment

From the wikipedia article for the movie... Co-writer Drew Dowdle says, "'We worked very closely with the Thai government and there were a lot of things they wanted us to shy away from ... So although the film shows a coup breaking out in a Southeast Asian city, ... it never specified the country. We were very careful not to make it Thailand in the ...

Looks like the Royal Ontario Museum of Natural History which is, as you thought, in Toronto. On the page linked, there's a series of stills from the James and Louise Temerty Galleries of the Age of Dinosaurs which includes the image below: Which looks to be the same room as the second image in your question.

The 'Air Force base' was a regular civilian airfield dressed both practically and later digitally as an AFB. The drone footage is actually very easy to do in CGI. In fact the comparatively 'crappy quality' of real drone footage and speed of explosive shockwaves/debris-fields really help when creating CGI simulations as we don't expect realistic (and thus ...

I've just found this on YouTube, a time lapse video of making the set of the "Glasshouse". So it was apparently built entirely from scratch for the film. It's obviously a Mies tribute - it appears to be one segment longer than the Farnsworth House:

Thanks to the research by the commenters above, I am sure the location must be the "Bonanza Creek Ranch". Looking at the location on Google Maps it fits with where we were shortly before and afterwards. Doing a new search, there are 3 films within the time frame: The Preacher and the Gun (this looks hilariously awful) Sweet Vengeance (aka Sweetwater) The ...

I couldn't find the actual location, so this is speculating, but there could be a waterfall hidden in that picture facing the other one, both falling towards a the same body. Imagine in the picture above if you were standing in the waterfall on the left with your back to one on the right, it would look similar.
