Assassins Creed, blockbuster released in Dec 2017, was partly filmed in Malta.

Not only a popular place for historical film settings, it has also seen filming for more recent popular films such as World War Z and Captain Phillips.

Located near Mellieha you can still find the original set from Popeye filmed in 1980 starring Robin Williams. The set, Popeye's Village, is now a family entertainment complex where you can take boat trips around Anchor Bay and take part in many fun filled activities creating a great family day out.
