Blockbuster movies can instantly create a lasting image of what a state may look like, even in the cases where it didn’t film on location, or the quaint and charming town was totally fictional. It's called movie magic. To find the most popular movie in each state we took data (yes, numbers!) from Box Office Mojo’s lifetime and current movie grossing lists, along with IMDB rankings, Rotten Tomatoes, and in a few cases, we had to make some tough judgement calls.
