35TH ANNIVERSARY IN HOPE
Although First Blood was filmed thirty five years ago, many of us are still fascinated with the movie that started the Rambo franchise. Contrary to popular belief First Blood was not only filmed in Hope but all around the greater Vancouver area which included North Vancouver, Burnaby, Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Golden Ears park. This website was developed to include all the locations for the fans who would like to know exactly where all the iconic scenes took place.
Finding these locations wasn't easy as there were no known records to the exact locations once you left Hope and the beautiful Coquihalla Canyon. Thanks to team work and a little bit of fluke (ex. the junkyard) this website was not only developed by me, but from fans around the world.
Also to my good friend Chris Wergeland who has been instrumental in finding new First Blood related material and helping me keep this website fresh and up to date.
I'd also like to send out a special thanks out to Inge Wilson, Brian McKinney & Riley Forman and so many other Hope residents for all their assistance over the years. When you set off on your adventure to Hope, B.C. be sure to visit the Hope Visitor Centre where Helen Kennedy and her friendly staff will get you hyped, prepped & Rambo ready! They've got a map of all the filming locations along with behind the scene stories, souvenirs and any other information you'll need to make your stay memorable!
