Movies that weren’t filmed where you think
Fooled by movie magic once again!
Cinema is all about diving into a different world, suspending disbelief and instead choosing to invest in whatever we’re shown on screen. Sometimes what's shown to us is genuine, like scenes shot on-location in the places where stories are actually set, but other times we're fooled by movie magic, which makes it appear like you’re seeing one place when really it's another.
In the filmmaking industry, there are often tight parameters around shooting, from budgets to specific rules determined by cities, and that can make the intended shooting location impossible. The movies must then be shot in a completely different place, and the filmmakers must do their best to disguise it on camera.
Click through to see some surprising examples of movies that appear to be in one place but were actually shot in another.
