Scarlett Johansson at a nearby supermarket

Mats Rice, the owner of the local supermarket Joker, was also on the set because his little neighbor supermarket was filmed. Display Leading actress Scarlett Johansson’s settlement with him at the box office did not save the film, but it was an experience.

Rice says of the circus that one day settled in his village, “Now I understand why it’s so expensive to make a movie. Two weeks before the shooting, lighting technicians came from the UK to see my fluorescent tubes.”

The next day after the shooting, Mats saw a woman and her son taking pictures in front of the store. “They had come 500 miles to film my shop.” He couldn’t reach it, but fans would sometimes travel halfway around the world to see the filming locations.

Movie locations are one reason for a beautiful path

Some places are leveled by the audience. For example, the Croatian Dubrovnik could not handle the crowd after the Game of Thrones. But it’s not really that big of a deal on Sæbø says Anne von Urchot von The Adventures of Norway

The tour operator offers ‘self-driving tours’ in this vast region and Sæbø is one of the places people come to on the Black Widow tour. “We see movie venues as an opportunity to allow visitors to go down a good path through this area.”

For example, Sæbø is located in Hjørundfjord, which Norway Adventures wants to go with their kayak trips. “Precisely because all the boats, yachts and yachts are less crowded here than the famous Geirangerfjord that will drive you crazy during the high season.”

Tax incentive for film productions

Van Urchot moved to Norway in 2000 with her husband Rogier. The exteriors were handcuffed. A place where peace and quiet determine the order of the day. They chose the Norwegian Fjords because of their special terrain. “Not a day goes by that we regret that decision.”
