Filmed in Lanzarote
Lanzarote has featured on the big screen more than you might think. Often (but not always) selected for its unique lunar-like landscape, the island plays a compelling role on the silver screen.
A few notable productions are:
- The island recently played host to A-listers such as Chris Hemsworth and Cillian Murphy filming In The Heart of the Sea.
- Penelope Cruz starred in Broken Embraces, which features scenes in El Golfo, Famara and the national park. An article in The Guardian provides interesting insight into the origins of the movie.
- Scenes from Clash of the Titans, featuring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes, were filmed on Lanzarote. Turismo Lanzarote provides some more background.
