While the Motor City might not be the most filmed location in the nation, it does make an appearance in a myriad of films, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, 61*, and Eminem’s 8 Mile. Below, Curbed mapped over 15 films and TV shows that feature Detroit in bright shining lights. You might notice that TV shows and movies like Freaks and Geeks, The Crow, and RoboCop were left off of this map, and that’s because none of them were filmed in the Motor City, despite being set there. Additionally, a few films were left off due to not having any specific addresses found online, such as Evil Dead, which had a few indoor scenes shot in director Sam Raimi’s garage in Royal Oak.
I’m surprised by some of the entries. Sure, I knew about Out of Sight and many others. The Transformers movies are set here? Really?
