7 Abandoned Movie Locations That Look Very Different Than They Did In The Film
Film sets are generally considered to be awesome places. In any given neighborhood, when word gets out that a film crew has set up camp there, the locals tend to get very excited. Members of the movie-going public make excuses to cruise past the set, so they could get a glimpse of a famous actor, or two. But, what happens to these often-elaborate looking film sets once the director calls it a 'wrap' and all the excitement has died down? Take a look at the following photographs of film sets taken long after the crew has gone, and find out!
The Plaszow Labor Camp ('Schindler's List')
The real site of the camp couldn't be used as it is now a nature reserve, so Speilberg had this replica built instead!
The replica can still be found at the Liban Quarry near Krakow, Poland. Haunting!
Gotham City ('Batman')
It may look like a cool place to visit but sadly this ruin was demolished years ago.
But, back in 1989, it was possible to walk through the giant set!
The Lars Homestead ('Star Wars')
Look what happened to Luke's home!!
Luckily, it was restored by a group of super-fans!
Spectre ('Big Fish')
This abandoned set just looks creepy now, like it should have been out of a horror film!
However, back in 2003, on our screens the place was looking great! Too great in fact, because the look of the set was enhanced digitally.
Dixie Square Mall ('The Blues Brothers')
Oh dear. There was a nasty rumor that the crew never bothered to clean up this set before vacating!
It looks a lot nicer in the movie, huh?
Port Royal ('Pirates of the Caribbean')
This was actually a real port in St Vincent. It's looking a bit shabby since being abandoned by the film crew in 2003, but it's apparently going to be restored!
Who knows, it may look as good as it did on the film?!
District 12 ('The Hunger Games')
An abandoned textile town in North Carolina was chosen for this shoot.
Here it is in the film, looking pretty much the same!
