Forgetting Sarah Marshall Filming Locations (2008)

Forgetting Sarah Marshall Filming Locations (2008)

There have been a number of romantic comedies filmed in Hawaii, from 2004’s 50 First Dates to 2011’s Just Go With It (Adam Sandler can’t get enough of Hawaii – and who can blame him). However, writer and star of 2008’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall Jason Siegel (who’s best known for the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother) describes the film as a “romantic disaster movie”. While that might be fair to say of the plot, it couldn’t be…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Filming Locations (2017)

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Filming Locations (2017)

Like any Hollywood actor, Hawaii has played many different characters onscreen. We’ve seen it play a prehistoric world in Kong: Skull Island (2017), alien jungle planets in Avatar (2009) and Predators (2010), and even itself in The Descendants (2011). And in 2017, it was chosen to play the world of “Jumanji”. In Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the titular fictional jungle – which isn’t even seen in the original 1995 film – is finally realized, so now there are many…

The Descendants Filming Locations (2011)

The Descendants Filming Locations (2011)

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, director Alexander Payne’s The Descendants (2011) was filmed in Hawaii. And much like 1999’s Molokai: The Story of Father Damien, or more recently, 2011’s Soul Surfer, The Descendants is both filmed and set in Hawaii. As it shares its storytelling between the islands of Oahu and Kauai, as you can imagine, there are plenty of The Descendants filming locations waiting to be discovered. George Clooney plays Matt King, a native Hawaiian…

Hawaii Five-0 Filming Locations (TV Series 2010)

Hawaii Five-0 Filming Locations (TV Series 2010)

The 60s, 70s and 80s saw a plethora of popular cop shows, from 1968’s Hawaii Five-O to 1980’s Magnum P.I. And now, thanks to the reboot trend, you needn’t look in your rear view to relive them. Among the most popular is the Hawaii Five-0 reboot, the long-running CBS show that has left countless Hawaii Five-0 Filming Locations in its wake. Based on the original show of the same name (well, almost the same – check out Hawaii Five-0 Facts to find…

Filmed in Hawaii – Molokai: The Story of Father Damien (1999)

Filmed in Hawaii – Molokai: The Story of Father Damien (1999)

Over the years, many pictures have been filmed in Hawaii. But one you might not be all too familiar with is 1999’s Molokai: The Story of Father Damien, directed by Paul Cox and based on Hilde Eyrikel’s biographical book. Combined with a soulful score, this beautifully-directed film is a poignant retelling of the story of the devout Roman Catholic priest. Set on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, the film sees the titular Father Damien (played by David Wenham) commit himself…

An Ultimate Guide to Movies Filmed in Hawaii

When it comes to film, there might be no place in the world that’s quite as versatile as Hawaii.

In fact, the islands’ landscape is as versatile as the kind of movies that are filmed in Hawaii – in other words, there is…

Filmed in Hawaii: Predators (2010)

If you’re a fan of the Predator franchise, you’ll have recently seen the trailer for The Predator, the fourth film in the hugely-popular, ever-enduring sci-fi series. But what you might not know is that the third film, Predators (2010), starring Adrien Brody and Laurence Fishburne, was filmed in Hawaii. That said, you probably do know that Hawaii is no alien to blockbuster franchises. The 1987 original – now a true sci-fi classic – pits Arnold Schwarzenegger against a marauding alien…

Filmed in Hawaii: Soul Surfer (2011)

Filmed in Hawaii: Soul Surfer (2011)

Hawaii has seen a great deal of inspirational real-life stories in its time, but that of “soul surfer” Bethany Hamilton is one that tends to stand out more than others. It’s fair to say that most people will be familiar with the story of the young surfer who lost her left arm in a shark attack on Kauai’s North Shore back in 2003. After all, it’s one that has since been told in both book and film. Based on the…

Filmed in Hawaii: Jurassic World (2015)

Filmed in Hawaii: Jurassic World (2015)

If you’re as familiar with 1993’s Jurassic Park as I am, then you’ll know that Hawaii is no stranger to prehistoric monsters. It’s also home to filming locations for The Lost World Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001) – the second and third films in the series. More recently, though, 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World was also filmed in Hawaii. In fact, the fourth film covered more Hawaiian ground than any of its predecessors. And while the new park doesn’t last long once…

Filmed in Hawaii: TV Series Lost (2004 – 2010)

Filmed in Hawaii: TV Series Lost (2004 – 2010)

In the popular TV series Lost, the survivors of a plane crash are forced to unite to overcome the mystifying threats of the island on which they’re stranded. From the beginning, the sci-fi hit relied heavily on intrigue to draw in viewers. But the fact that it was filmed in various locations throughout Oahu in Hawaii for its entire six-year-run is no mystery. The pilot episode opens with the characters finding themselves on a seemingly-deserted island beach in the wake…
