Call yourself a film buff? Love travelling as much as you enjoy catching flicks? Then this new interactive guide by travel specialists Orbitz is for you.
Discover The World On Screen lays it all out, which countries and cities to visit if you’re a fan of a particular film, the exact locations to check out where key scenes were shot, lots of related movie trivia and also some of the top things to do there that don’t involve gleefully recognizing familiar streets and buildings. In short, everything you need to plan out a fun, fandom-fuelled holiday.
Go for a stroll across the rolling green hills of Middle Earth from The Lord of the Rings in New Zealand. Follow the ghost-busting footsteps of Peter Venkman and company in New York City. Literally walk into Back to the Future’s Hill Valley (the set still exists in LA’s Universal Studios). Or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, head to the deserts of Namibia and see with your own eyes the post-apocalyptic setting of Mad Max: Fury Road -- Furiosa would surely approve.
There’s something there for every kind of movie fan. Of course, you’re probably not going to come across any of your favourite heroes or villains, but still – a film’s setting is often a star itself. So go and visit. Recognize places you’ve seen countless times on screen. Bask in the nostalgia. And relish it. Because when you’re actually there, in a way, you kind of become part of the story.
