While the first part of the movie Mission: Impossible is recorded in Prague, a large part is also filmed in the UK. Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), finds a hideout in the middle of London, right on top of Liverpool underground station. He meets up with Phelps nearby at the Liverpool train Station.

The high speed train scenes were filmed in Scotland between Annan en Dumfries.

For the Avengers – Age of Ultron, the movie starts in the (much used) forrest of Bourne Woods near Surrey in the UK. But the secret Hydra Research facility is much further south in Italy.

The Fort di Bard was used as the Facility.

Close to where “Agent Carter” was filmed (the Isodine Building), the crew for “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” recorded scenes for the “Todorov” building. At 2413 Firestone Blvd. scenes that took place in Belarus were recorded (S01E04). The street scenes are recorded on the Universal back lot. Even if the production had the budget to go to Zloda in Belarus, it would not have been possible… is is not a real town.

In epidode 3 (S01) of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Skye has to infiltrate a house in Malta and sabotage a project. Ofcourse the crew did not go to the real country of Malta to shoot some scenes, instead they used a location in Malibu. A private mansion at 26880 Pacific Coast Highway was used, now if you have seen the episode and the mansion looked familiar, the same location was used for “True Blood” and “I love you man”.

In the very first episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”, a bar called “Ruthie’s Skillet” can be seen (Skye makes her first appearance here). A real bar was used for filming, but if it is “Ruthie’s Skillet” you are looking for, you are out of luck. The production team dressed “Spring Street Smoke House BBQ“, a bar in North-West LA to look like the bar they needed. Still, it is a location you can actualy visit. Later in season 1 (episode 20) the bar was visited again.
