Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Los Angeles

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 […]

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.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Los Angeles

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 […]

Sherlock Holmes (2009) – Liverpool

For the 2009 version of Sherlock Holmes (with Robert “Iron Man” Downey Jr.), the crew went all over the UK to film at the most beautifull locations.

Doctor Strange – Nepal

On april 25, 2015, Kathmandu was hit by a giant earthquake. A little while after this tragedy, the crew for “Doctor Strange” (2016) arrived for their film. Although major temples were damaged by the quake, they still can be seen in this movie (CGI restauration?). One of the bridges leading to the temple of Kasthamandap […]

Griffith Park Tunnel

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 […]
