AVENGERS INFINITY WAR- One of the most renowned tourist destination in the Philippines was shown in the Hollywood film “Avengers: Infinity War”.
Cinemas all over the Philippines have been mobbed by Marvel fans as the nineteenth film in Marvel Cinematic universe, “Avengers: Infinity War” started showing in cinemas around the country last April 25.
Directed by the Russo brothers, the film discloses the story of several Marvel superheroes, along with the Guardians of the Galaxy, fighting to halt Thanos from amassing the Infinity Stones.
According to a report from CNN Philippines, Walt Disney Philippines revealed that “Avengers: Infinity War” earned P141.6 million on the opening day, breaking two records in the Philippine Box Office- the highest grossing film on premiere day and biggest single-day gross box office.
Although the movie is already well-loved and anticipated by many Filipino moviegoers, there’s another reason why “Avengers: Infinity War” is a must watch.
As detailed in the report, the rumors have been confirmed that a certain scene in the movie was filmed in the Philippines.
Indochina Productions, a movie-making company based in Bangkok who also took part in the production of the said Hollywood film, confirmed through a Facebook post that they shot in the famous Banaue Rice Terraces sited in the northern part of the country.
Another report from ABS-CBN News cited that Philippine’s world-wonder can be seen towards the end of the movie. In the scene, the villain Thanos walks out of a nipa hut situated in a peculiarly familiar ridged rice paddies – the Banaue Rice Terraces.
The scene accords to what was written in the comic series “Infinity Gauntlet” where Thanos retreats to a farmland. The said comic series is where the movie is based on.
However, it has also been revealed that Thanos, portrayed by actor Josh Brolin, did not go to the Philippines to shoot. Video footages filmed by Indochina Productions were used and visual effects were applied to produce the moving scene.
