Back to the Future - Family movies

The Langham was constructed in 1865 and is one of London’s first purpose-built hotels. Bond scrambles over the iconic, globe-adorned rooftop of the Atlantic Kempinski in “Tomorrow Never Dies,” and the hotel’s exterior also appears throughout the film. Played by Pierce Brosnan, Bond stays in the hotel’s Atlantic Suite and several scenes were filmed there. This Indian hotel doubles as Octopussy’s lair in the film of the same name, with the dining room, terrace and hotel barge appearing in various scenes. The hotel’s lily pond is also featured in the film, when Bond girl Octopussy is shown enjoying a naked swim. In “Goldfinger,” this enormous hotel appears in the sweeping aerial shot which follows the opening credits. In the film, Bond girl Jill Masterton is found dead at the hotel after being covered in gold paint. In “The Spy Who Loved Me,” Roger Moore’s Bond seduces KGB agent Amasova in the piano bar, which doubles as Bond’s hotel room. The Cala di Volpe was the first hotel to be built on the Costa Smeralda, which is a popular holiday spot for those who rarely enjoy the charms of hostels: Heidi Klum and Denzel Washington have both stayed at the hotel. In the opening scene of “Skyfall,” Bond (played by Daniel Craig) takes a dip in this London hotel’s rooftop swimming pool. The pool’s floor-to-ceiling windows offer unbeatable views over London, but because the property doubles for a hotel in Shanghai, they were blacked out prior to filming.
