Detroit, Michigan. A city that’s gained a reputation for many things — MoTown, Motor City, The Automobile Industry, Robocop, Eminem, and of course their sports teams, just to name a few.
Filmmaking is another thing that belongs on that list. Films are being shot and produced in Detroit on a regularly basis.
Why is that? The city has a certain unique look that can play well on film. It doesn’t have the same romantic glamour as Los Angeles and it’s not as busy or routine as New York. There’s a certain look to the city that can’t be found anywhere else. Because of this aesthetic,’ we’re listing off the top ten movies filmed in Detroit that heavily feature and, in some ways, represent the city.
