This weekend Wes Anderson's latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, opens in theaters, but this one resort you can't actually check into.
The movie is set in the fictional Republic of Zubrowka in the 1930s and, true to Anderson's style, takes viewers along on a whimsical caper involving a stolen painting and a group of wealthy Zubrowkans.
The quirky new movie Adult World is perfect for a Valentine's date night, and not just because it is a romantic comedy. It also perfectly captures the frigid upstate New York winter which will make you want to snuggle up even closer to your sweetie.
Adult World stars Emma Roberts as recent college graduate and aspiring writer whose student loan debt forces her to move back home with her parents and take a job at an adult bookstore.
After spending time there last year, Ben Stiller can't stop sharing his admiration for Iceland.
Ben's latest movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, was the first major motion picture to film scenes in Iceland that were actually set in Iceland.
To recreate images from the book Lone Survivor, based on the 2005 Military Operation known as Operation Red Wings, the movie's producers traveled across New Mexico, to find some of the state's most remote locations.
Among them were the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, just north of Santa Fe. The movie's crew and actors, including Mark Wahlberg, took chairlifts and walked miles into the wooded mountains to recreate the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan.
In Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, a young marine is offered an undercover job at a Wall Street firm where he uncovers a Russian plot to destroy the US economy. Jack is then dispatched to Moscow to confront the man behind the plan but, in reality, he spends most of the movie in the UK.
Even though both New York and Moscow play a large role in the movie, the crew spent only a few days filming in each city, with the rest of scenes were filmed in London for both logistical and financial reasons.
There are plenty of movie-themed tours in New York, Los Angeles, and London, but if you prefer a little more adventure with your cinematic escapes, head to Moab.
The Greatest Story Ever Told, Thelma & Louise, Con-Air, Austin Powers 3, and 127 Hours are just a few of the famous movies filmed in the Moab area.
Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is one of the first U.S. movies to be primarily set in Iceland, which also doubles as Greenland, Afghanistan, and the Himalayas throughout the film.
Now that the movie is hitting theaters, several tour groups in Iceland are looking to cash in on the country's new starring role by offering trips to some of Walter Mitty's filming locations.
If you missed Ron Burgundy's recent promotional blitz, you can still get a look at his wardrobe and workplace through August.
Anchorman: The Exhibit has officially opened at the Newseum, the museum of news and journalism in Washington D.C.
The exhibit features costumes and props from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy starring Will Ferrell. Some of the highlights include Ron's flute and mustache brush, the “Sex Panther” cologne, Veronica Corningstone's costume, and a replica of the Anchorman news desk.
The story of a fictional news team’s sexist reaction to the addition of an ambitious female reporter reflected the reality of the business in the 1970s.

The real star of Saving Mr. Banks is actually Disneyland.
The modern day park was transformed back to 1961 for the film which follows Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) on his quest to convince Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) that she should let him turn her beloved book into a movie.
Through costumes, exact replica poster art, balloons, and the famous retro Floral Mickey that once greeted visitors, Disneyland was brought back to its early days just for the film.
Now that most Hunger Games fans have seen Katniss Everdeen battle it out on the big screen in Catching Fire, they can follow in her footsteps.
Hunger Games Unofficial Fan Tours has finally launched a new Catching Fire tour in Atlanta. The tour includes stops at filming locations, hands-on activities, Archery Tag, and a Catching Fire-themed lunch menu.
