    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)[USA]

    This entry was incorrect - it should have been:

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) [UK| USA]

    I missed that the IMDb said that two countries including the UK were involved in the production of this 6th. instalment of the Harry Potter film series.

    Therefore it has been moved to the "Tower Bridge in Films" thread - Today, 08:51 AM #79

      Master of the World (1961) [USA]

      https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055152/

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master...rld_(1961_film)

      Quoting IMDb: "In 1868, an American scientist and his team become hostages of fanatical pacifist Robur who uses his airship Albatross to destroy military targets on Earth." Note the year - 1868.

      In this production stock footage from several earlier films was used including the Tower Bridge which appeared from 01:03:35-01:03:38 and is unfortunately uncredited so far. But then it should not have been seen at all since the Tower Bridge was constructed between 1886 and 1894 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_Bridge)!

        Frenzy (1972)
        With regard to Metro1962's post (26th September 2017, 07:21 PM #5)

        Frenzy (1972)

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frenzy

        https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068611/

        The IMDb entry under "County" states "UK|USA".

        Quoting Wikipedia: "Frenzy is a 1972 British thriller film.

        Since it appears that there was at least some UK production participation this film belongs in the "Tower Bridge in Films" thread where it has already been mentioned several times in posts:

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intu_Mintu_Londonma

            Quoting Wikipedia: "Nepalese romantic drama film...received mixed response from critics praising cinematography, music and performance...but was criticised for its routine story and screenplay but received positive respons from critics...became one of the highest grossing Nepali films."

            Hopefully the Tower Bridge scenes in the following videos actually appear in the film.

                London Bridge (2014) [India]

                A millionaire in London looking for a life partner has to choose between the two women he has fallen in love with.

                  Fast & Furious 6 (2013) [USA]

                  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1905041/

                  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_%26_Furious_6

                  You would expect for all the money spent making these films that they could come up with an original title for this 6th. entry of the franchise.

                  Quoting IMDB: "reassemble their crew to take down a team of mercenaries"

                  The following excerpt covers a high end performance cars sale taking place on the Thames embankment:

                    Terror by Night (1946) [USA]

                    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039017/

                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terror_by_Night

                    Quoting IMDb: "When the fabled Star of Rhodesia diamond is stolen on a London to Edinburgh train and the son of its owner is murdered, Sherlock Holmes must discover which of his suspicious fellow passengers is responsible."

                    A rarer end on view of the Tower Bridge occurs from 00:01:45 to 00:01:49 with an announcer stating: "Our story opens in London within the sound of Bow Bells. In the shadow of Tower Bridge is the carpenter shop of 'MOCK & SON', coffin makers."

                    (movie still at 00:01:48)

                    The view is from the north because that forest of spindly long boomed cargo cranes seen to the right of Tower Bridge are on the south side upstream.

                    Coming across footage of the Tower Bridge was completely unexpected in this Universal Pictures Sherlock Holmes movie series - as rare as the 'Star of Rhodesia' diamond that was the centre of attention in this film.

                    Quoting Wikipedia this film is now in the public domain and can be downloaded from the Internet Archive (https://archive.org/details/Terror_By_Night).

                    And by the way if you too were wondering what "within the sounds of Bow Bells" meant it turns out again according to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Mary-le-Bow):

                    "St Mary-le-Bow is a historic church rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1666 by Sir Christopher Wren in the City of London on the main east–west thoroughfare, Cheapside. According to tradition a true Cockney must be born within earshot of the sound of Bow Bells".

                        Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) [USA|China|France|Norway]

                        https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4912910/

                        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missio...%80%93_Fallout

                        Quoting IMDb: "Ethan Hunt and his IMF team, along with some familiar allies, race against time after a mission gone wrong."

                        This is the 6th. film in the series. IMDb says that 4 countries NOT including the UK were involved with the production.

                        Found a trailer that actually has time to show the Tower Bridge:

                        "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 6 Trailer 3 (2018)"

                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUBM7fEHSnk

                        The Tower Bridge appears in the background at 00:00:01. Ethan Hunt (played by Tom Cruise) is running south along the spine of the roof which covers the eastern of the two adjacent Blackfriars Railway Bridges that cross the Thames. By the way this roof is covered with enough solar cells to make it at the time of this post the largest solar bridge installation in the world (https://inhabitat.com/worlds-largest...-river-thames/).

                          Return to Never Land (2002) [USA]

                          https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280030/

                          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Return_to_Never_Land

                          Quoting Wikipedia: "The film follows Wendy's daughter who refuses to believe in her mother's story during the Blitz in London, only to be mistakenly brought to Neverland by the pirates. In order for her to get home, she meets Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys who encourage her to fly and make her believe."

                          Tower Bridge appears for an instant at 00:00:27 when there is a slight break in the clouds.

                          The 'camera' does a pan (nothing to do with Peter) past the Tower Bridge from 00:02:15 to 00:02:20. The animators have taken liberties with the terrain - especially the course of the Thames - but then it is a quick shot and the most important identifying structure is clearly seen.
