    Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) [UK | France | Germany | Ireland | USA]

    The sequel to "Bridget Jones Diary" (2001).

    IMDb quote: "The story picks up four weeks after the first film, and already Bridget Jones is becoming uncomfortable in her relationship with Mark Darcy."

    IMDB states that the UK was one of five countries that had production participation.

    Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) breaks up with Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) with the Tower Bridge in the background from 00:28:37 to 00:29:58.

      Alfie (1966) [UK]

      Quoting IMDb: "An unrepentant ladies' man gradually begins to understand the consequences of his lifestyle. "

      Michael Caine took on the lead after many others refused and it proved a wise choice for his career.

      Tower Bridge is in the background from 00:55:26 to 00:57:32 when Alfie (Michael Caine) is chatting up while taking photos of Ruby (Shelly Winters).

        Quoting Wikipedia: "commandos executing a daring raid on the German-occupied French coast during the Second World War.The film is based on the commando raid on the French port of St. Nazaire"

        "Encouraged by the worldwide success of '633 Squadron', producer Walter Mirisch proposed a series of British made films with a military theme having major American stars in the lead that would comply with the Eady Levy requirements and cost no more than $1 million US$. This film was the first"

        IMDb states two countries including the UK were involved in the production.

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

          Originally I posted this film in the "Tower Bridge in films (non-British)" thread - 12th May 2019, 11:17 PM #16 since I erroneously thought it was only a USA production.

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

          Tower Bridge is seen in the background in two scenes starting at 00:01:11 and 00:01:23 of the following excerpt:

          "Death Eater Attack -- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"

            For Your Eyes Only (1981) [UK]



            Quoting IMDb: "Agent 007 is assigned to hunt for a lost British encryption device and prevent it from falling into enemy hands."

            This is the 12th. film in the "official" series (so the original "Casino Royale" and "Never Say Never Again" are not included) as well as the 5th. time Roger Moore played James Bond. Unfortunately Bernard Lee who played "M" died before his scenes were filmed.

            The deliberately unnamed villain ( who just happens to look like "Blofeld"?) takes remote control of the helicopter that his nemesis Bond has been lured into. The elaborate unit's left hand monitor shows the helo's forward view which from 00:02:14 to 00:02:17 is centred on the one and only Tower Bridge!

                Trainspotting (1996) [UK]



                Quoting IMDb: "Renton, deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends."

                Tower Bridge appears fleetingly - twice - at 00:58:25 during a montage of London landmarks.
