Gunpowder Milkshake dropped on Netflix US on July 14th and the action thriller has viewers wondering where all these fight scenes and stunts were filmed.
Israeli director Navot Papushado has recruited some of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses for his first English-language feature film, Gunpowder Milkshake.
With a title like that, you would never assume that it would be jam-packed with guns, stunts and the stars giving villains a good ass-kicking. We deduce that there might be a lot of explosions, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Already from the trailer, we spot a variety of locations where Karen Gillan throws gang members around like a rag doll, such as a bowling alley, a library fit for Harry Potter and an American diner.
So where was Gunpowder Milkshake filmed?
Gunpowder Milkshake filming locations revealed
- Gunpowder Milkshake was filmed in Berlin and Potsdam, Germany.
Yes, it looks like the American diner is fake as production commenced in June 3, 2019, and concluded on August 20, 2019 in Germany.
According to TheCinemaholic, the crew were spotted filming scenes in the Messedamm underpass and the location seems to be a well-known Hollywood gem. The subway has been the backdrop for blockbuster movies such as Captain America: Civil War and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
The cast also travelled to Potsdam, a city on the border of Berlin, for the oldest large-scale film studio in the world, Babelsberg Film studio. The location is no stranger to huge films such as Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs and The Grand Budapest Hotel, as well as Quentin Tarentino’s Inglourious Basterds.
