The Cabildo estimates that the filming of the film Rambo V in Tenerife will leave on the Island more than eight million euros. This has been announced by the president of the Island Corporation, Carlos Alonso, who emphasizes that the recording of this production "has important positive effects both for the promotion of the Island and for its economy, taking into account the professionals who move for the recording , the expenses in accommodation, the maintenance and the transport, the hiring of extras or the purchases of material ".
