If you think you that new Hollywood trailer reminds you of somewhere well here's why!
Parts of Chorley take pride and place in the movie 'A Monster Calls'.
You can spot Rivington Pike and the surrounding landscape in the film after the movie crews filmed the picturesque backdrop in October 2014.
Unfortunately the pike's tower had to be cut from the final edit but you can still clearly let its the iconic Chorley landmark.
See if you can spot in the trailer here:
Councillor Peter Wilson, the Deputy Leader of Chorley Council, said:
"With its rugged landscape, historic features and scenic views, Rivington and Rivington Pike make excellent backdrops for lots of different filming opportunities. We were delighted when we were approached by the location manager of a Hollywood movie to do some filming in the Chorley borough and couldn't turn down the opportunity.
"The story sounds very dramatic and emotional and it is fantastic to see Rivington play a part in the film. A lot of people already visit the Rivington area for walking, cycling or other recreational activities but we're hoping this will provide even more exposure, encouraging people to come and see the locations where the film was shot for themselves.

"Attracting visitors is really important to Chorley, helping to boost local businesses and the local economy and having the area feature in a major Hollywood film is a great opportunity to put Chorley on the map.
"We know we have some of the most beautiful countryside in the region, a thriving town centre, beautiful canals, parks and historic halls but we want more people to know that Chorley has lots on offer visitors for a great day out."
