It probably comes as no surprise that New Mexico has hosted its share of westerns, including Brokeback Mountain, Appaloosa, and 3:10 to Yuma. Or that the state's desert landscapes have been selected for apocalyptically themed movies such as the upcoming Terminator Salvation and The Book of Eli and the beginning-of-time flick Year One.
But outside the state's boundaries, not many people know that New Mexico has been the backdrop to more than 100 movies over the past century. To mark ReelzChannel's move to New Mexico and ribbon-cutting ceremony this week, we pick our Top 15 Movies Filmed in New Mexico.
