Popping up in Bath
Surprise. Happy Sunday. Here is a little GIF from the film ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, an amazing adventure story for all ages. I actually watched this film in Bath’s Little Theatre on Halloween 2009. I wasn’t aware at the time, but one of the key action scenes were based on that very theatre we were sitting in. I was kicking myself when I found out a year later.
“Director Wes Anderson spotted the building during a trip to the city with his girlfriend and decided the look of Bath was perfect for the film. The model town which features in the movie has been based on photographs taken of Bath during that visit and includes Georgian townhouses as well as the independent cinema.Mr Anderson said the city was the perfect location.
He said: “The town, for example, where part of the movie is set, is Bath…My girlfriend and I were in Bath and we were saying you know this square here would be great. This is a good space for the showdown and the manhole here is great…And, of course, you have to make it all miniature before you can put it in the film.”
