This map shows the most famous movie set in every state

We recently set out to name the most famous movie set in every state, a challenging and subjective endeavour. In order to pick, we evaluated the state’s prominence in the movie and leaned toward movies that were filmed in that location, as well.

The film’s lifetime gross, its critical acclaim, and testimonials by our geographically diverse staff also influenced our decision.

How many have you seen? Check out the annotated map below, and read more about the movies here.
