When British locations stand in for far-flung Hollywood locations

‘Are the Cantina Band playing the 02 Arena?’

Forget AT-AT Walkers and shiny Stormtroopers, what really caught the eye in the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which you can see here, was a blink-or-miss-it clip of people legging it down what appears to be the Jubilee line platform inside Canary Wharf station.

Not in a lookalike sense either - we mean the real actual physical Isle of Dogs location, doubling up for some intergalactic location in the saga’s next chapter, which Twitter users were only happy to try and speculate.

It wouldn’t be the first time a British location has been transformed into an exotic location for a film of course. So, starting with the new Jason Bourne film below, here are some other notable recent examples.
