Iceland is becoming more and more hip everyday now... Scenes from many Hollywood films and TV series were shot in Iceland. For example Game of Thrones, Batman, Justice League and James Bond.
From desert to glacier lagoons
Iceland is becoming more and more hip everyday now. The landscape is varied, it concludes the biggest "desert" in Europe, the Highlands (not the typical desert though) and one of the largest glaciers in Europe, Vatnajokull. A lot of mountains and volcanoes like Eyjafjallajokull and places that look like foreign planets.
Hollywood is here
Hollywood has been opening their eyes to this amazing landscape and therefore we have a lot of newly shot films here, for example Interstellar, Noah and Oblivion.
We‘re still waiting to see the newest one, Star Wars Episode VII, which will premiere this December. Some of the filming took place in Iceland and it looks like Iceland will represent an Ice-planet, the rumors are return to the Ice-Planet Hoth. A war between lots of different spaceships will maybe take place...
James Bond in Jokulsarlon
A part of James Bond – Die Another Day was taken here where there was a car chase among icebergs on the frozen lagoon of Vatnajokull, Jokulsarlon. The lagoon was also seen in the opening scene of A View to a Kill where it represented Siberia
Game of Thrones and Bollywood
These are only few examples but there's much more happening. The TV series Game of Thrones, Justin Bieber shooting his music video here and Bollywood is arriving as well.
