There’s no doubt that Hollywood loves the picturesque island of Kauai. Over the years, Kauai has been a filming location in more than 60 movies and TV productions.
This year, the Garden Isle will be making appearances once again in these upcoming movies.
Just Go with It is a romantic comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. It will be released on February 11. Here’s the trailer.
Pirates of the Caribbean, On Stranger Tides sails into theaters on May 20 using Kauai’s and Oahu’s landscape as the backdrop to this adventure film. Here is the preview.
The Descendants, starring George Clooney, is a film based on the popular novel by Hawaii author Kaui Hart Hemmings. According to IMDB, the story-line is a “land baron tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident.” There’s no release date or trailer yet for this 2011 movie, but I do know that parts of the movie were filmed at the gorgeous St. Regis Princeville. The reason that I know is that I got to observe the production crew setting up for a scene in the lobby back in April 2010. Here’s a photo of that lobby that will likely be included in the movie.
Will you be going to the theaters to catch any of these movies with Kauai connections?
