The World’s Most Popular Filming Locations

Monument Valley, AZ and UT The dramatic plateaus, cloud-covered canyons, and rolling meadows of Arizona and Utah’s Monument Valley (near the Four Corners) have been popping up in Hollywood flicks since the early 1930s. As a postcard-picture representation of the American West, the region has been featured in fitting films like Stagecoach (featuring John Wayne), Easy Rider, and The Lone Ranger. But you can also spot the Colorado Plateau’s iconic panoramas—like the twin buttes (AKA “the Mittens”), the Ear of the Wind arch, and the Totem Pole—in Forrest Gump, Thelma & Louise, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
