Thanks to its weather, economic and landscape conditions, Puerto de la Cruz once again becomes the backdrop of a film. In this case, the well-known North American saga Rambo, which will come with this film (probably the last) to its fifth installment, is the one chosen.
Filming in the Martiánez tunnel
One of the places chosen for part of the filming in Puerto de la Cruz of the film Rambo V was Martiánez tunnel, one of the entrances to the coast of Puerto de la Cruz, after which you arrive at Martiánez Beach and its surroundings at one end of the city.
It was approximately 12 hours of recording, between 2 pm and 2 am, in this place so characteristic of Puerto de la Cruz.
The film crew stayed at Puerto de la Cruz
Although there were several places on the island chosen for the recording of several scenes of Rambo V, the town chosen by the famous North American actor and star of the film, Sylvester Stallone, to stay during the filming on the island was Puerto de la Cruz.
About the film
Although there is not much information yet about the film directed by Adrian Grunberg and written by Sylvester Stallone and Matt Cirulnick, the release date is estimated for the end of 2019.
Among the actors’ poster is obviously Sylvester Stallone, who despite his advanced age still has a spectacular physique and energy to continue producing and starring in films, besides the well-known Spanish actress Paz Vega, and the Mexican actress Adriana Berraza.
Apart from Puerto de la Cruz, at the moment it is known that filming will also take place in several locations in Bulgaria and the United States.
More shootings planned in Puerto de la Cruz for the next year
By 2019, the filming of a Swedish film in Puerto de la Cruz is also scheduled and will be added to the filming of Rambo V at the end of this year 2018 and another Danish film called “Happy People” which also took place in Puerto de la Cruz this year with a recording in the town that lasted for six weeks.
