Amazing movies made in New Zealand

Lord of the Rings – The Trilogy (2001-2003)

Had to be mentioned otherwise I may have had a serious backlash,

New Zealand is firmly on the filmmaking map for its breathtaking beauty.

Wolverine (2009)

Filmed in the Otago region of the South island and starring the beautiful Hugh Jackman

The Hobbit Trilogy (2012 – 2014)

You can’t mention Lord of The Rings and then not mention The Hobbit.

Mauri (1988)

The first feature film from Merata Mita who is well known for her political views and advocate for change, thanks to her traditional Maori upbringing.

The Last Samurai (2003)

Who’d have thought that you might have bumped into Tom Cruise in Taranaki? Mount Taranaki filled in as Mount Fuji in the movie,

Black Sheep (2006)

Awesome and hilarious light relief comedy horror filmed in Wairarapa and Wellington.

The World’s Fastest Indian (2005)

A combination of three killer elements here. A true story about New Zealander Burt Munro from Invercargill,

Without a Paddle (2004)

Pay attention in this film as it is a walking advertisement for New Zealand’s North Island
