You might say that Utah hasn't had the best of luck with the blockbuster movies that have been filmed or partially filmed here.
The first big summer movie that was shot entirely here was the horrendous flop, "John Carter," from a couple of years ago. Then last year, "The Lone Ranger" and "After Earth" were partially filmed here in Utah to take advantage of the state's grand landscape. Not just that they were stench-ridden films, but they bombed at the box office. Let's hope that ends that curse.
Now news has come out that a new blockbuster shot a week's worth of footage here in Utah last May — Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction," the fourth in the series of rock-em, sock-em robot movies based on the line of toys.
