Where was Assassin's Creed filmed?

The new movie based on the famous Ubisoft franchise is not based on any existing video game. The plot, as well as its characters, is completely original. Callum Lynch (played by Michael Fassbender) can get into the skin of his ancestor, Aguilar de Nerja, thanks to a technology that unlocks genetic memories. Aguilar was a member of the mysterious Secret Order of Assassins and possessor of great skills, that can be used to fight the powerful Templar organization.

This ambitious adaptation has been directed by Australian Justin Kurzel, who put an special effort in shooting on location as much as possible, and using practical effects instead of creating stuff on a computer. The film is also starring Jeremy Irons, Brian Gleeson, Marion Cotillard, and the Spaniards Javier GutiƩrrez and Carlos Bardem.

Assassin's Creed has been filmed in Malta, Spain and in the Pinewood Studios in England. The story takes place in the present day and in the 15th century Spanish city of Seville:

Where was Rogue One filmed?

The latest trailer from the first of the new three spin-off Star Wars movies is coming packed with stunning scenery and epic battles. The action takes place after the events of the Revenge of the Sith, and before the original Star Wars IV episode.

Rogue One follows the adventures of a group of rebels, starring Felicity Jones and Diego Luna. We are spoiler-free as usually, and -of course- we don't have any clue about the fate of the Death Star that appears in the movie.

This Lucasfilm production travels to amazing locations all around (our) world. Rogue One has been filmed in the dark southern coast of Iceland, the desert of Jordan, the studios of England, and in a fabulous paradise-like destination in Maldives:

Where is Westworld filmed?

The first episodes of Westworld, the new series from HBO, are very promising. It's said that this show may become the new Game of thrones: spectacular locations, a great cast (including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden) and a good story where western meets sci-fi.

The plot is inspired on the 1973 film by Michael -Jurassic- Crichton of the same name, taking place in a near future where robotics has developed to the point of reaching the borders where life begins. In this context, a mysterious corporation offers holidays in an adult theme park where guests can be whoever they want, and take their darkest fantasies beyond limits.

Westworld has been primarily filmed in a movie ranch of Santa Clarita in California. The vast beautiful landscapes that give the feeling of the classic Westerns are located in Utah and Arizona:

Where was Stranger Things filmed?

The horror has been unleashed in a small town of the Midwest. Mysteries, adventures, sci-fi and romance enveloped by an outstanding soundtrack with a retro sound of classic synths. However, the key feature of the show is the fact that it's wonderfully set in the 80's. The story is a delicious cocktail that mixes references from The Goonies to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Alien or Twin Peaks.

Stranger Things was filmed in Atlanta and in other locations around Georgia, that were doubling as the small town of Hawkins in Indiana. As usual, we try not to show spoilers, so we don't give many details about what's going on in these locations:

Where was Inferno filmed?

In the highly anticipated third instalment from Dan Brown’s saga (after The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons), we are following again the trail of clues that Professor Robert Langdon discovers through the most glamorous filming locations.

Inferno has been filmed mainly in Florence, and also in Venice, Istanbul and Budapest. Since the bestseller book of the same name was published in 2013, the capital of Tuscany has attracted many tourists looking for the places where the action takes place.

Tom Hanks is reprising his role as the Harvard symbologist, who wakes up in a hospital with amnesia. He teams up with Felicity Jones as Dr Sienna Brooks. She will help him to recover his memories, and while they are at it, to save humanity from a deadly global plot. Just in case, it contains no spoilers:

Where was Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children filmed?

The new fantastic movie of Tim Burton, based on a children’s book by Ransom Riggs, follows the adventures of a young boy traveling to a mysterious island which houses the ruins of an abandoned orphanage. Here he will meet a troupe of creepy kids endowed with superhuman abilities. But unlike X-Men, the bizarre inhabitants of this place are not trying to save the world, but to hide from it.

The movie features some famous actors (such as Samuel L Jackson, Eva Green, Judi Dench or Chris O’Dowd) and two key filming locations, the Welsh island of Cairnholm and Miss Peregrine's house.

The Edward Scissorhands director likes to have in-camera effects as often as he can, using visual effects trying not to make it overly green screen. This way the production went to a mixture of locations and had a real house. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has been filmed in the United Kingdom, Belgium and also in Florida:
