Originaly, Tomb Raider – The Cradle of Life was going to be filmed in China near the Great Wall. The Chinese authorities refused the crew to film in their country, so an alternative had to be found. The United Kingdom was chosen, Snowdonia area in particular. The bike chase near the great wall was filmed […]
For “Game of Thrones”they did not only go North of the Wall, but also to the North of Europe. In Iceland they found the beautifull national park Thingvellir, where the exterior sceres “North of the Wall” were shot (as well as a bloody battle!).
The abandoned Magheramorne quarry has been used by HBO for “Game of Thrones”. A complete set of Castle Black has been build here as well as “The Wall” and fully realized Hardhome set. Although some interiors were build here, most were recorded in Belfast at “Paint Hall” studios. It is not open for public.
