A new movie hitting theaters this summer is just one of many recent projects to show Iceland some love.

The independent film Land Ho! follows two old fiends, Colin and Mitch, as they travel through Iceland after Colin's split with his second wife.

Though filmmaker Martha Stephens spent just 18 days shooting around Reykjavik and Iceland's countryside, the location makes a lasting impression on viewers.

According to the L.A. Times, “The film functions both as a travelogue of some of the spectacular natural sights on Iceland, [and] also as an unexpected buddy comedy and story of men of a certain age coming to terms with where they are in their lives.”

Land Oh! is just one of many feature films that has recently embraced Iceland's unique beauty. Noah, Thor: The Dark World, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and Oblivion all shot scenes in Iceland, too.

Check out Iceland on the big screen July 11, when Land Ho! premieres in New York and Los Angeles.
