VIDEO: Glasgow gets a stars and stripes makeover ahead of filming for new Indiana Jones film
Travel across the pond might not be possible at this moment in time, but Glasgow has been given a taste of America thanks to an upcoming Hollywood blockbuster.
US flags, stars and stripes bunting, and American-style mailboxes are adorning the city centre as preparations get underway for filming for the new Indiana Jones movie.
Roads will be closed later this month to allow for scenes to be shot as Harrison Ford, 78, returns for another adventure.
The area involved includes George Square, Cochrane Street and St Vincent Street. A full list of road closures can be found here.
Ford was pictured in Mayfair in London last Friday with his arm in a sling after reportedly suffering a minor injury while rehearsing a fight scene.
Other stars reportedly appearing in the film are Danish Hannibal actor Mads Mikkelsen and Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Ford first portrayed the globe-trotting archaeologist in the 1981 film Raiders Of The Lost Ark, directed by Steven Spielberg.
It is more than a decade since Ford appeared on screens as Indiana Jones, when he starred in The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, released in 2008.
The upcoming film is the latest to use Glasgow as a base for filming. The city also hosted shooting of parts of World War Z, a 2013 zombie movie starring Brad Pitt.
1917, Wild Rose, Under the Skin, Cloud Atlas, Outlaw King, Outlander and upcoming BBC drama Vigil have also all filmed extensively in Glasgow.
