Movie locations around the world part 5
Welcome to part 5 of my quest for finding movie locations around the world! Left images are from the actual films and to the right are my visits to the spots.
Featured: Once Upon a Time in America, Adjustment Bureau, The Avengers, Spider-Man 3, Night at the Museum, When Harry Met Sally, Home Alone 2, National Treasure, X-Men First Class, In The Line Of Fire.
Once Upon a Time in America (1984)
Sergio Leone’s epic final film is set in New York city, where arguably the most iconic shot is from the Brooklyn side. The intersection of Water St and Washington St has a nice view of the Manhattan Bridge between the old brick warehouses.
Attachment Bureau (2011)
Attachment Bureau has scenes all over New York city. Here David Norris (Matt Damon) is holding a speech at the ferry stop next to East River, just by the Brooklyn Bridge.
David Norris (Matt Damon) and Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt) finally end up at the roof of Rockefeller Center. It’s usually crowded by tourists, so don’t expect it to be this empty.
The Avengers (2012)
The Avengers assemble one final time at the terrace overlooking Bethesda fountain. Here we have Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain America (Chris Evans), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) admiring the clouds.
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Few heroes are as connected to New York city as Spiderman. In the third one, Spiderman (Tobey Maguire) meets up with Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) on the Bow Bridge.
Night at the Museum (2006)
The Bow Bridge is a very popular movie location. In the first Night at the Museum, Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) takes a walk over the same bridge.
When Harry Met Sally (1989)
Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) and Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) has scenes all over New York. The most famous location from the movie has been decorated with a sign hanging from the roof, stating “Where Harry Met Sally… Hope you have what she had! Enjoy!”.
The couple can also be seen at a lot of iconic NYC locations, such as the Egyptian section at The Met.
Home Alone 2 (1992)
Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) meets up with the “pigeon lady” (Brenda Fricker) near Gapstow Bridge in a cold Central Park.
National Treasure (2004)
Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) and the rest of the gang from National Treasure make sure to be visible all over the capital while planning their secret heist. First posing at the White House…
They have a discussion on the steps leading up to Lincoln Memorial at the western end of The Mall.
They even visit the Main Reading Room of Library of Congress. Quite a tour of DC.
X-Men First Class (2011)
Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Professor X (James McAvoy) also enjoy sitting on the hard stairs of Lincoln Memorial…
…but the view at sunset is totally worth it.
In the Line of Fire (1993)
Clint Eastwood is usually seen with a gun in San Francisco, but here he (as Frank Horrigan) chills out with Lilly Raines (Rene Russo) at the Lincoln Memorial, on the other side of the country.
