Glasgow’s Trongate is the latest part of the city centre to get a Hollywood makeover as filming continues for the fifth Indiana Jones movie.

Shops have been transformed into an old school American high street for the latest scenes of the film starring Harrison Ford.

Last week several streets were transformed into the United States with the city’s St Vincent Street adorned in stars and stripes for a parade scene, which featured pipers playing Scotland the Brave and a brass band behind.

Harrison Ford and Boyd Holbrook body-doubles were spotted performing an apparent chase scene.

The lookalike for Ford rode on horseback along past the parade, with the Holbrook double behind on a vintage motorbike.

One float involved in the parade featured the words “Apollo 11”, with other references to the astronauts suggesting part of the film could be set in 1969.

Filming has so far featured several hundred extras, but other main stars in the movie include Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Shaunette Renee Wilson and Toby Jones.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, star of Fleabag and Solo: A Star Wars Story, was pictured on set on Wednesday at Cochrane Street.

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.
