Netflix’s¬†Pieces of a Woman¬†was shot on the island last year, the big-budget Tom Holland flick¬†Chaos Walking was shot in Montreal the year before, and the X-Men franchise, John Wick, Arrival, and Mother!¬†were also shot across the greater Montreal area over the past few years.

Now that Halle Berry has finished¬†shooting¬†Roland Emmerich’s new flick,¬†Moonfall,¬†which began principal photography over the fall, here are a handful of movies and TV shows that are being shot in Montreal right now, according to ACTRA.
