Oh Canada. Blockbuster Movies Made Here

As the 'go-to' destination for Tinseltown’s big budget productions, Canada has always been ready for its close-up—even when it’s doubling for another location! The cost is also a big factor with the Canadian dollar being much lower. Here are just a few of the blockbuster movies that were made here.

Brokeback Mountain


This groundbreaking drama starring Heath Ledger, Michelle Williams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway was shot in Alberta’s majestic Rocky Mountains. Calgary, Cowley, Elbow Falls and Fort Macleod all masqueraded as Wyoming! The cowboy romance was celebrated at the 78th Academy Awards, winning three Oscars: Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Score.

Capote


This critically acclaimed Truman Capote biopic was shot primarily in Winnipeg, with additional scenes captured in Selkirk, Manitoba. While the story of the In Cold Blood author is set in Kansas, the film’s producers selected Manitoba as the American city’s stand-in. Stony Mountain Institution, the Manitoba Legislative Building and Gilbart’s Funeral Home star prominently in this Oscar-winning flick (Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Academy Award for Best Actor).

Titanic


Real-life catastrophe and movie magic are intertwined on Canada’s east coast. In 1912, when the Titanic was ripped apart by an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean, Halifax was the closest major seaport to the disaster. Despite feverish rescue attempts, few survivors were pulled from the frigid waters and over 100 victims were laid to rest in Halifax cemeteries. When James Cameron began production on his 1997 epic, he brought his cast and crew to Halifax. The city would once again play a role in the story as Cameron shot the film’s harrowing ocean scenes aboard the icebreaker CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent.

Twilight


Calling all Twihards! Come to British Columbia and follow in the footsteps of Bella, Edward and Jacob. Three of the four movies in the Twilight saga—New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn—were shot in various locales around Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, including David Fraser Secondary School (appearing as Forks High School), Minnekhada Regional Park and the Ridge Theatre.

American Psycho


This controversial cult classic does an incredible job of using Toronto as a stand-in for New York City. Toronto-Dominion Centre is used as the office building of main character Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale). American Psycho‘s dance club scenes were shot in the Phoenix Concert Theatre, while Toronto pillars The Senator and the Omni King Edward Hotel’s Consort Bar double as one of the many restaurants the film’s characters frequent.

Good Will Hunting


Despite being one of the most famous Boston-set films in recent memory, Good Will Hunting was actually mostly shot in Toronto! The University of Toronto’s campus prominently stars as both Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, respectively, while a few classroom scenes were filmed at Central Technical School.

Next time you watch a movie, look closer, what you think you are seeing as a US city, may not be.

These are only a few. Toronto has 4 major studios and more are being built. Netflix does a lot of productions here also. U.S. studios spent over $1B filming here in 2019. Thanks for stopping by.

im told toronto or vancouver are often used as a substitute
for nyork and other american cities
to take advantage of the favorable exchange rate.

but i dont buy it -
canadian cities are WAY too clean to pass as american.

is the urban legend true
that a movie crew once graffitied up an alley in toronto
for a scene, then took a lunch break,
and when they came back to shoot
the alley had been cleaned up?

I did know a lot of movies and tv series are made in Canada, at the end of the movies most have the Canadian flag symbol a tell tale sign where it was made, like the made in Georgia one at the end of walking dead. But I did not know some of these were made there, always a pleasure visiting your blog and learning something new my friend

Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal are amongst the most popular locales. However, there are lots of other smaller cities and towns that are also used. Some celebrities have a real fondness for filming here. As for that graffiti story? It’s cute and likely an urban legend 😊

Yes it's a huge industry here. I work with and have met several in the industry. Everyone can't wait for things to get 'back to normal'. You know, I love sharing information, especially about my country. Look for another one later today

Some really good ones that you mentioned. And I'm sure there are some pretty good ones that could still be mentioned.
I should give Broke Back a second chance.

... is there another way to look at it.
