    ATLANTA - In celebration of the 10th year anniversary of the passage of tax credits that brought in a flood of TV and film production into the state of Georgia, here are the top 60 domestic grossing films since 2008 shot (at least in part) here. I credit www.boxofficemojo for the numbers. 

    Not surprisingly, superhero films dominate the top of the chart with no shortage of sequels and remakes included. Twenty three of the films broached the magic $100 million mark domestically. The top-grossing Tyler Perry film hit $90 million.

    Very few of these films would be considered “prestige” Oscar bait e.g. “Selma,” “42,” “The Blind Side, “ “Flight.”
