Dreaming of sun, sea & sand? |
With the weather heating up and our holidays in mind, we take a look at our favourite 10 movies with iconic beach scenes to get us in the mood for Summer…
| THE BEACH|
Filmed on the stunning Thai island Koh Phi Phi, ‘The Beach’ tells the story of an American backpacker, Leonardo DiCaprio, who joins a community of beach-dwelling utopia seekers.
| PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN – ON STRANGER TIDES|
Sea, sand, mermaids and Johnny Depp returning as rogue pirate Captain Jack Sparrow – ‘On Stranger Tides’ has everything you’d expect from the swashbuckling 4th installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
| AMERICAN PIE 2|
After a year apart attending different schools, our favourite group of guys get together and rent a house on the beach for ‘the best Summer ever’ packed with wild parties, even wilder girls and an awkward trip to band camp.
| DR. NO|
This is the bikini that started it all. Over 50 years on and Swiss bombshell Ursula Andress is still at the top of our #WCW list. The part where she emerges from the sea in ‘Dr No’ remains one of the most iconic scenes in James Bond history.
| SURF’S UP|
Animated kids movie ‘Surf’s Up’ is a comical mockumentary on how penguins were actually the inventors of surfing. Look out for the voices of Shia LeBeouf, Zooey Deschanel & James Woods!
Dubbed by critics as “Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece" and a cult classic, ‘Jaws’ is a film version of Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel about a killer white shark with a penchant for terrorising the beaches of Amity Island.
Most likely the one and only time in our lives where we’ll grieve over a lost volleyball, washed up Tom Hanks depicts a story of survival and tragedy that is played absolutely perfectly.
Who can forget the opening scene to our favourite musical? Danny & Sandy are shown frolicking at the beach after the perfect Summer together – who knew Zuko had a soft side!
| THE NOTEBOOK|
As unlikely teenage lovers Noah & Allie have fun at the beach, she tells him she could have been a bird in another life, leading to Ryan Gosling’s notable reply “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird". Hankies at the ready for the rest of the movie.
| FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL|
Number 1 rule when your famous girlfriend dumps you? Try not to end up in the same Hawaiian hotel as her and her new British rocker boyfriend.
