London 2012 may have been a triumph for both Team GB and the capital itself, but as it winds down we're already looking ahead. No, not to Rio in 2016 - but beyond! Which city will host the 2020 Olympics? Such a futuristic date requires an appropriately out-there host city, and we have some fabulous examples drawn from the movies.

2 LOTR!
Lovely to see that LOTR has two entries. Minas Tirith for all the action - river for canoe, kayak, sailing, etc. - plains for all the track and field and equestrian events - the city itself for cycling (gotta love the cobblestones) . Hobbiton, of course, is the Olympic village. Party on! More

They should have created the circles with the bikes beam on the track.... that would have looked much better. I did however really like the Cloud City one... great concept :) More
