Have you ever wanted to visit one of the worlds portrayed in your favorite movies? It’s not as impossible as it may seem. Heck, you could be living in or around some of those locations, as you’re reading this!
We all know green screen is becoming a staple of almost every modern movie, but no matter how talented the CG artists are, or how hard they’re trying to replicate Mother Nature, they will always be just that – mere replicas. Nothing beats the real thing, and smart directors will try to include as much IRL shots as possible for their movie.
Take an iconic filming locations like New York, for example. When you’re watching the Avengers fight aliens on the real streets, you think to yourself “Wow! I could be walking down that street in just a few hours if I book my flight right away!”
There are countless amazing filming locations all over the world, but in my opinion if you visit at least half that are on this list, you’re gonna get some major bragging right, not to mention sweet-sweet memories. Here are 10 famous filming locations every movie buff should visit in 2019.
