Volcano Movie - Dantes Peak, 1997

Dante's Peak is a man-made Cascade volcano created for the 1997 movie Dante's Peak, starring Pierce Brosnan and Linda Hamilton. The peak itself was a 100 square foot by 35 foot high wood and steel structure built on a sound stage in Los Angeles and wheeled onto a tarmac to be shot against the sky and later composited with live action footage shot on location (Wallace, Idaho). Computer-generated smoke, ash and lava were created as special effects. -- (Info courtesy: Universal Pictures Marketing)
