Reddit user Jakubisko decided to find out the most popular film set in every state. To do so he scoured the depths of IMDB and cross referenced the top rated movies with where they were set. The result is a very interesting map that might surprise you, not only because you learn which movies are filmed where, but also because a lot of these movies nobody has really heard of.
It’s interesting to note that five of the movies actually reference the state in which they are set. That’s what we call on-the-nose filmmaking.
