Ah.........sounds like Paths of Glory.

ETA: I've never seen it, so don't know the location - but I'll show my working:

1957-40 years = WW1
WW1 + Kubrick = Paths of Glory.

There's a link from the previous film to the one that filmed some of its scenes HERE, 5 miles from where I used to live (but a few years before I was born).

Paths of Glory is well worth watching.

That could be pretty much anywhere on the islands or up the west coast. It isn't Wicker Man so I'll go with "Whisky Galore".

I'll look out for Paths of Glory. Was reading about it this afternoon, it sounds interesting.

Not Whisky Galore. Film is not set in the Western Isles, the landscape was pretending to be somewhere else. Somewhere very else.

Somewhere very else?

Kubrick + a few years before Lianachan was born + somewhere very else = 2001.

Is that from the final jump through the portal, in solarized psychedelic glory?

It was used, through filters, as the surface of somewhere but can’t remember where.

Which recent-ish film had its final shootout here? It doesn't have robots in it, and in the film they had to crop the CN Tower out of the shots.

Conspiracy Theory was filmed more or less in New York/Jersey. This is Toronto. I think this is one of the X-Men series. The one with the (Un)Deadpool, maybe?

I can think of one recent-ish film that's a bit shooty and filmed in Toronto, including scenes that look like they could have been filmed inside there. But then.... there are robots, and would have been no need to cut out the CN Tower unless it used the outside.

Ah, I thought I had replied to this. No robots, no superheroes but the film was based on a graphic novel.

It has an ensemble cast with the biggest star being half German and a female lead being half Russian.

Half German = Bruce Willis perhaps, but can't think of anything I've seen him in that ticks the other boxes (dunno who the female lead could be, either). Whatever this is, I doubt I've seen it.

Ja Valter's Mutti ist Tscherman. Yelena Mironoff's father was Russian. You may not have seen it, I don't remember it getting much publicity.

Hmmm...... Shooty and quietly promoted Bruce Willis films I've not seen, then. The Jackal?

No. You may have seen it, but obviously it isn't very memorable. Helen Mirren's character's love interest was a Russian played by a Indie supporting Scot.

Ensemble cast, shooty, Bruce Willis, based on a comic, but I'm sure it's not the right answer because I don't think it used any real places: Sin City.
