New Movie Starring Kevin Hart Showcases Northern Ireland’s Beautiful Scenery

The highly anticipated film “Elevate,” featuring US comedian Kevin Hart, has been released on Netflix. The movie, largely filmed in Northern Ireland, showcases the stunning landscapes and rich cultural heritage of the region.

During his stay in Northern Ireland, Kevin Hart resided at the Culloden Hotel just outside Belfast for several months. He pleasantly surprised audiences with spontaneous performances at venues such as the Limelight and Lavery’s, adding an electrifying element to his time in the city.

“Elevate” is the second Netflix movie to be filmed in Northern Ireland, following the success of “The School for Good and Evil” in 2021. The film was shot in Harbour Studios and various locations across Northern Ireland, with support from Northern Ireland Screen, showcasing the diverse and picturesque settings of the region.

Directed by F Gary Gray, “Elevate” follows an international heist crew, led by Kevin Hart’s character Cyrus Whitaker, as they attempt to steal $500 million (£393 million) in gold from a passenger plane before it falls into the wrong hands.

Richard Williams, Chief Executive of Northern Ireland Screen, praised the collaboration between local and international talent, stating, “The dedication and artistry of the local crew complemented the work of global players Kevin Hart and F Gary Gray to bring this eagerly awaited film to fruition.”

The UK government has emphasized the significant economic impact of screen productions in Northern Ireland, with direct contributions exceeding £330 million to the local economy since 2018.
