With black sands, blue lagoons, and volcanic terrain that stretches out over the horizon, Iceland is an island of breathtaking beauty. No wonder that many major Hollywood productions have come to film here, such as Game of Thrones, Noah, Oblivion, Star Trek and Interstellar.
Einar Hansen Tomasson has been in charge of spearheading film investment to Iceland. His first major project, was have the Clint Eastwood movies Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, shot here on the Reykjanes Peninsula in 2005.
Flags opened the floodgates to more and more international productions coming to Iceland, where its stunning scenery, hard-working crew, and generous tax rebate, provide a strong incentive.
Both the new Star Wars film and Halo adaptation are currently filming in the country, and it seems that as long as science fiction and superhero films remain popular in Hollywood, the biggest international productions will continue to be attracted to shooting in the land of ice and fire.
