The sound of pipes and brass bands – as well as stunt riders on motorcycles – has filled the air in Glasgow city centre as filming begins on what is believed to be the new Indiana Jones movie.
Streets in the city centre have been transformed into late 1960s New York for scenes of a parade which appears to be welcoming the first men on the moon back home.
A pipe band marched along St Vincent Street on Thursday afternoon, with a brass band following. Crowds of extras waved flags and cheered as floats were driven past.
A Harrison Ford lookalike rode on horseback along past the parade, with the Boyd Holbrook double behind on a vintage motorbike.
Rehearsals had taken place earlier in the week at the Albion Car Park next to Ibrox Stadium in Govan.
Crowds have gathered at fences blocking off streets to catch a glimpse of the action, and many have shared pictures online of the incredible shop front makeovers.
There has been no confirmation that the filming is for the fifth Indiana Jones adventure, but the movie’s director James Mangold has been pictured in Glasgow on set alongside other crew members this week.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, star of Fleabag and Solo: A Star Wars Story, was pictured on set on Wednesday at Cochrane Street and is due to play a major role in the film.
Ford, who turned 79 earlier this week, has not yet been seen in Glasgow but has been filming scenes in England in recent weeks.
Parts of the city centre will closed on various days until July 31 for filming, with the “prohibition of pedestrian movements during ‘action’” in some cases.
Vehicles will not be able to wait, load or unload – or even move – on other dates along St Vincent Street, Hope Street, West Nile Street and Wellington Street, among others.
Filming will move along to the Trongate, Montrose Street, Bothwell Street and Blythswood Street as the month goes on.
Vehicles will not be allowed to move along the M8 Kingston Bridge off-ramp to Bothwell Street from 8pm to 10pm between July 26 and 28.
A list of street closures and timings can be found on the Glasgow City Council website.
