Angelina Jolie is in Pyrgos to film "Maria"

Angelina Jolie was in Pyrgos on Sunday morning, specifically at the Apollo Theatre.

The actress who will play the tremendous Greek soprano, Maria Callas, in the movie "Maria" will stay for a few days in Greece, for filming.

As soon as the filming is finished, the Hollywood star and the film's crew will be transferred to Katakolo.

After all, there is the yacht of Aristotle Onassis, Christina O, where many film scenes are shot.

The actress made known her desire to be accommodated on the luxury yacht. However... accommodation on the yacht costs 100,000 euros per day, an amount that the production company will bear.

Where is Netflix’s Surviving Paradise Filmed?

A majority of the pivotal sequences for ‘Surviving Paradise’ was lensed on the Greek Island of Lefkada AKA Lefkas, which is situated in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece. In particular, the production team sets up camp in a cliff-top, oceanside villa, which is symbolic of the height of luxury in the competition as the contestants attempt to survive the wilderness surrounding the luxurious property to become an insider. Moreover, several key portions are taped in the jungle, where the contestants indulge in various physical activities.

Australian-helmed film The Aegean wraps production in Greece

The film tells the story of Hector, a widowed Greek fisherman who grapples with ageing in a world that seems to have forgotten him. His life takes a dramatic turn when he encounters Theodore, a resourceful and optimistic teenager in desperate need of a savior. United by their struggles, they embark across the Aegean Sea, discovering newfound purpose and the redemptive power of friendship.

The film was shot on the tiny and lesser-known Greek island of Kythira. According to Richardson, Kythira offered ‘a stunning, natural backdrop’ for the film, in contrast to more developed Greek islands like Mykonos and Santorini.

Two Tickets to Greece: Kristin Scott Thomas and Laure Calamy shine in French film comedy about friendship

In “Two Tickets to Greece,” Blandine (Olivia Côte), a depressed and divorced Frenchwoman, is pushed by her son to take a Hellenic excursion with Magalie (Laure Calamy), the middle-school best friend she lost touch with decades earlier. Magalie, now a free-spirited, impulsive music journalist, can find fun anywhere. Blandine, a buttoned-up radiology technician embittered by her ex-husband’s remarriage, seems incapable of experiencing fun at all.
