We've looked at the most famous book and TV show in each state. What about movies? 

Today's map comes from Melia Robinson and Frank Pallotta of Business Insider, who took on the challenge using this criteria:

"To pick the most famous, we evaluated the state's prominence in the movie and leaned toward movies that were filmed in that location as well. The movie's lifetime gross, its critical acclaim, and testimonials by our geographically diverse staff also influenced our decision."
