Visiting Filming Locations of "Hellboy" (2004) in Prague, Czech Republic

Directed by Guillermo del Toro.
Produced by Lawrence Gordon, Mike Richardson & Lloyd Levin.
Screenplay by Guillermo del Toro.
Story by Guillermo del Toro & Peter Briggs Based on Hellboy by Mike Mignola.
Starring Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Jeffrey Tambor, Doug Jones, Rupert Evans, John Hurt.

Hellboy is a 2004 American supernatural superhero film, starring Ron Perlman and directed by Guillermo del Toro. The film is loosely based on the Dark Horse Comics graphic novel Hellboy: Seed of Destruction by Mike Mignola.
It was produced by Revolution Studios, and distributed by Columbia Pictures. The film is about a demonic beast turned into superhero, known as Hellboy, who secretly works to keep the world safe from paranormal threats with his team, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. -Wikipedia.

The biggest challenge for the location scouting was finding an area to film the New Jersey rooftop scene as it was proven that Prague didn't have many locations that can serve as an American city.
After many false starts, Del Toro finally found the right street for the scene to be filmed in which had to be redressed to look more American. -iMDB.

Visiting Filming Locations of "Silver and Cold" by AFI in Prague, Czech Republic

The music video for "Silver and Cold" was directed by John Hillcoat and shot in Prague, Czech Republic.
The band came up with the concept for the video and director Hillcoat developed it. It shows band members Jade Puget, Adam Carson, and Hunter Burgan rushing to stop the vocalist Davey Havok from committing suicide by jumping off of the Manes Bridge, but as they reach him, they die in a horrific car crash.
Havok walks away unharmed, although it is implied that he is a ghost. -Wikipedia
