1. Sokovian Hydra base, Avengers Age of Ultron
In the movie this fortress was a secret Hydra base that the Avengers had to infiltrate in order to get the Loki’s scepter (again). Couldn’t they just send Black Widow and be done with the mission? Well, in any case, Fort Bard has seen plenty of action in the last 200 years and it was used to control the pass between France and Italy. Now it’s just a pretty fortress and a tourist magnet.
Fun fact: the snow in the opening scene was mostly fake but at least it wasn’t CGI-fake, right?
2. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry Potter
To fully show Hogwarts in all its glory, the filming team had to shoot in multiple locations in England but the interior part of the school was shot in the Oxford Cathedral. Its stone staircase and the long dining hall hit all the right notes with the producers and even inspired Hogwarts’ Great Hall. The school’s hallways and most of the classroom scenes were shot in Gloucester Cathedral and Lacock Abbey respectively. Most movies would go with the CGI approach but not Harry Potter!
