Think those in other parts of the world haven’t heard of Singapore? While it’s true that we don’t have that much space, we make up for it with towering high-rise, impressive infrastructure or lush, verdant greenery. Perhaps this is what makes our island city the perfect country to film in. Especially since many local locations feature movie-set-like skyscrapers and compact, dense cityscape. Or perhaps our formula has branded us either as a suitable backdrop for an exotic Asian metropolis or a dystopian future city. Either way, filmmakers from around the world have found a way to do their storytelling on our 721.5 square kilometres parcel.
With HBO’s sci-fi series Westworld joining the fray too — it’s been confirmed that filming locations for their third season will include Singapore. We take a look at some other titles you may or may not have known, that had featured our humble little country in their scenes.
