“Twister” is the most-watched movie with a story that was set in Oklahoma — and which was filmed in Oklahoma.
How big was “Twister” at the worldwide box office? Consider that its figure of $494.5 million is from 1996.
If it sold the same number of tickets today, at current ticket prices, that figure would have been more than $1 billion, a true blockbuster.
These are the movies that were filmed in Oklahoma and then went on to the highest worldwide box-office figures, beginning with the story of Tornado Alley. (With substantial scenes filmed in the state, in millions of dollars, per boxofficemojo.com)
