Where was The Fate of the Furious filmed?

The eighth installment of the Fast & Furious saga continues the tradition of traveling to exotic locations. F8 also comes packed with a collection of celebrities, including Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Jason Statham or Kurt Russell.

The Fate of the Furious was filmed in Cuba, Iceland and in the United States. This is one of the first big Hollywood productions to shot in the revolutionary Caribbean island, since the embargo was lifted (last year, the Netflix series The OA were also filming in Cuba):
