Is Albuquerque Studios the new Hollywood?
Did you know that the terrifying destruction of Manhattan actually occurred in an Albuquerque rail yard? The insanely popular Avengers movie was mostly filmed in Albuquerque.
Hollywood execs weren’t the only ones to cash in on the most financially successful movie to date. The extensive production resulted in financial gains for hundreds of local business and over 500 New Mexicans employed by Albuquerque Studios for the filming and other local support businesses.
Now state and private industry officials are making their case to Hollywood production companies to remember New Mexico for their future filming projects.
With a profit margin in the millions on Avengers, Hollywood execs would be insane to discount New Mexico’s charm.
