Top of the list was Guardians of the Galaxy‘s use of London’s Millennium Bridge from 2014. A whopping 95% of those surveyed couldn’t pick out the iconic Thames crossing from the movie.
Of the 50 films on the list, 78% of those quizzed failed to identify the films as being either partially, or entirely filmed in the UK.
Odeon Cinemas, who conducted the research, also found some other surprising results.
9 out of 10 film fans didn’t realise that the airport scene from Love, Actually (2003) was actually filmed at Epsom Race Course, although unsurprisingly the film was the most identifiable British film on the list.
