'Under The Banner Of Heaven' Filming Locations Are In Alberta & You Might Recognize Them
You might spot a few familiar places!
A new TV series Under the Banner of Heaven starring The Amazing Spider-Man's Andrew Garfield has dropped and you might just spot a few of the filming locations if you live in Canada.
The series, which also stars Normal People’s Daisy Edgar-Jones was filmed across Alberta between August and December last year.
The first two episodes of Under the Banner of Heaven are set to be released on Hulu on April 28. Viewers in Canada can find it on Disney+ "soon," although it's not confirmed whether it will be available in Canada right away.
The screenplay was adapted by Dustin Lance-Black, who has written movies such as Milk and J. Edgar.
It's based on the 2003 nonfiction book of the same name by Jon Krakauer. Garfield plays a detective investigating a double murder that appears connected to a church in Utah.
The victims are Brenda Lafferty (Edgar-Jones) and her young daughter, and the murders took place in 1984 in Salt Lake Valley, Utah.
Alberta was chosen to double up as Utah and filming took place in Calgary, Strathmore, Didsbury, and Carstairs, so you could see your town on screen.
As part of the filming, Calgary’s Stephen Avenue was transformed in December to reflect the early 1980s when the production was set, complete with old cars and neon lights.
Shooting for the series also took place in Didsbury, including a scene with American actor Wyatt Russell.
During his stay in Calgary, Garfield was also spotted at some local businesses during the production and people were pretty excited to see Spider-Man in the flesh.
During Tuesday's episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden, Edgar-Jones talked about her time in Alberta filming the series.
She described Banff as "the most beautiful place" but then they did absolutely roast the town over its name.
