Alabama: Big Fish
Tim Burton's arguably most normal film, Big Fish, was filmed almost entirely in Montgomery, Alabama. The father-son tale wins over the Heart of Dixie for sure.
Alaska: Into the Wild
Sean Penn directed and produced this adaptation of John Krakauer's book of the same name. Emilio Hirsch plays Christopher McCandless, a wealthy college graduate who decides to forsake his possessions and prestigious lifestyle for a trek through the Alaskan wilderness. The crew traveled to Alaska four times to accurately shoot the various seasons.
