Seven Movies You Didn’t Know Were Filmed in Wyoming
Although it seems like just about every movie is filmed in Hollywood or based in New York, there's no reason why more movies shouldn't be filmed in Wyoming. And why not? We have some of the most beautiful scenery found anywhere in the world. Sure, just about everyone around here knows about Brokeback Mountain and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (who can't forget that Devil's Tower scene!), here are some more movies filmed in Wyoming.
In the first of what would become many Star Trek films, the alien planet Vulcan was actually Minerva Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park.
In the fourth Rocky movie where he's set to fight the big Russian, Ivan Drago, it shows Sylvester Stallone's character in arctic tundra of Russia... or, should I say, Grant Teton National Park where scenes were actually filmed. The scene where he gets off the plane in Russia was filmed at the Jackson Hole airport.
Another Sci-Fi movie where alien landscape is used in our backyard. This time, trenches from the film used Hell's Half Acre for it's area.
Probably the most recent movie filmed here uses the Grand Teton in several of its shots. Did you recognize them, too?
This Clint Eastwood movie was filmed in a few remote parts of Wyoming, as were many westerns.
Clint Eastwood must love Wyoming! The town in this movie was filmed from Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Although the SLC may stand for Salt Lake City, the film originate in Evanston.
