    Judwaa 2 (2017) [India]

    Quoting IMDb: "Prem and Raja are twin brothers who are seperated at birth but are uniquely connected to each other via their reflexes. They reunite as adults and set out to take down the underground smuggling world."

    This film has quite a pedigree according to Wikipedia (

    Judwaa 2 (2017) was "a reboot of Judwaa" (1997) which "was a remake of ... Hello Brother (1994), which in turn is loosely based on the Jackie Chan film Twin Dragons (1992)"!

    'judwaa' is Hindi for 'twins'.

    The first appearance of the Tower Bridge is the almost obligatory aerial fly over from 00:35:23 to 00:35:27

    Quoting from IMDb: "With much of America lying in ruins, the rest of the world braces for a global sharknado; Fin and his family must travel around the world to stop them."

    The Lodger (1944) [USA]

    Quoting IMDb: "A landlady suspects her new lodger is Jack the Ripper."

    The urban George Sanders with that wonderful voice and Laird Creger whose promising acting career was unfortunately cut short later that year were two notable players in this film.

    Tower Bridge appears during the film's climax from 01:22:58 to 01:23:02 in the misty background

    As was pointed out on the '' site: "The 1944 version of The Lodger also features a scene by Tower Bridge, although the film was set several years before it was built.".

    Return to Never Land (2002) [USA]

    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.

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

    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)"

    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 (

    Terror by Night (1946) [USA]

    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."

    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 (

    And by the way if you too were wondering what "within the sounds of Bow Bells" meant it turns out again according to Wikipedia (

    "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".

    Fast & Furious 6 (2013) [USA]

    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:
