More than 900 films and TV movies have been filmed in the Beehive State. Hollywood first discovered Utah in the 1920s when films like Stagecoach were filmed in the southern part of the state. Since then, Utah has been the backdrop for hundreds of films, such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Thelma & Louis, High School Musical, 127 Hours and John Carter.
