It's normally fairly easy to spot a movie set going on away from a studio if it's not in the wilderness, but we'll bet you didn't know that scenes from the upcoming 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' was actually shot in Canary Wharf in London.

It seems that Hollywood are increasingly incorporating elements of Britain into their movies, and it's not just about the actors and the directors. More and more film crews are being taken under America's enormous wing for major blockbusters, and Britain is also quite iconic for its movie settings - the latest being business district Canary Wharf.

'When we were making 'Rogue One', I sort of half-jokingly but half meaning it said to the producers, 'Well, let's just shoot in Canary Wharf'. There's all the guys in the suits coming home from work and we're not allowed to tell anyone - it's really secretive', said director Gareth Edwards. We had hidden Storm Trooper outfits and stuff and we go in and within an hour turned it into the Empire.

'I went up to one of art directors and was like, 'This was so good, how did you do this so quick?' And he said, 'Oh, we came in last night and we did a practise run.' The extra mile that the crew would always go to, it's kind of like a military operation.'

He adds that there's something about British crews that are irresistable to filmmakers; their refusal to say 'no' and the often generational experience. Benedict Cumberbatch expressed a similar sentiment about the making of Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' earlier this year. 'There's a lot to take pride in', he said. 'It was filmed in Longcross [Studios], amazing DOP and camera crew that were all English, sound department that was English, incredible set decks and prop supervisors and creative artists at every single level of what we did that were from this country.'

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' is set to be released on December 16th 2016.
