  • Desolate but beautiful Iceland has the perfect backdrop to adventures featuring magic or mystery. This still is from "The Last Witchunter" a 2015 fantasy and adventure movie. Photo/Screenshot from video, see below.

In the span of just a few years Icelandic landscapes have become one of the most valuable export commodities of Iceland. Not just as the main magnet for growing tourism, but also as the backdrop to Hollywood movies, TV series and advertisements.

But magical or dramatic landscapes are not enough: You need local talent and expertise to help foreign film crews find the right spots and produce those movie projects. One of the very best Icelandic production companies, True North, has worked on a number of Hollywood Blockbusters, including the latest Star Wars movies and the latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise.

The 2017 showreel of Truenorth is an amazing collage of Icelandic nature and landscapes in cinema. Among the movies are Rogue One, Captain America - Civil War, Jason Borne, The Huntsman, Noah, Prometheus, Oblivion, Secret life of Walter Mitty, Thor - The Dark World, Fast and Furious 8, Transformers, Sense 8, The Last Witch Hunter, Flags of our Fathers, Star Wars The Force Awakens and Justice League!
