There's a lot of magic that goes into what you see on the silver screen. We all know that a lot of the wonder actually happens BEHIND the scenes. From the writers rooms, to the lighting and effects, to the makeup and even the directing and cinematography. It takes a village to raise a…movie? Yea, something like that. 

The thing is, the locations and sets themselves are often the unsung heroes of a scene. The perfect location can often provide the emotion and ambience that no amount of writing or camera tricks can match.

Scroll down for some more wild examples of movie locations whose real story left us stunned.
