Now you see me – New Orleans

Image

New Hollywood, more commonly known as New Orleans, has been the movie location for big productions like “Jurassic World“, but also “Now you see me” has been filmed partialy here.

The cafe Du Monde is where Woody Harrelson does his mind reading trick.

A bit more style can be found at the Napoleon House, which can also be seen in “JFK”. Here the horsemen make an escape.

Want to buy something weird in a store seen in the movie? Try Reverend Zombie’s House of Voodoo.

A final bar that can be seen in the film, is the one near Roosevelt Hotel, the Sazerac bar. With a hotel closeby, this might be a nice place to end your tour, although it might be a bit expensive….

Home to so many movies, this small tunnel gets his own post.

Robert Zemeckis used this tunnel for the first two installments of “Back to the Future”, and “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (entrance to “ToonTown”).

Before that, in 1983, John Badham featured this tunnel in “War Games” with Matthew Broderick.

More recent, 2016, Marvels Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) was chased through this tunnel by badguys in season two.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit – RED Studios Hollywood

A combination of animation and live action, Robert Zemeckis’ funny movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” is set in Hollywood-1947. But only part of the movie was recorded in this area. Production was set in England at Elstree studios (most of the interior sets were build here).

The exterior of “Maroon Cartoons” studio is in fact in Hollywood and has been a studio for some time. It is known by the name of RED studios, but before that Desilu and Ren-Mar Studio). There is definitely some history there….

Also in LA, at 1130 South Hope street, Eddies office can still be found.

In the tiny town Interior, South Dakota, big things have happened. Paul Verhoeven came there to film “Starship Troopers” in 1997, Michael Bay did this for “Armageddon”. The location for filming the surface of the asteroid is near Barry Barber Ranch. (The photo of the vehicle was taken near Paris, at Disneyland).
