ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia is now among the top five U. S. states for film and TV production with more than 274 projects shot in the state since July 2010.

Movies filmed in the state are premiering throughout the summer and fall. They range from this weekend's "X-Men: First Class" to October's remake of "Footloose."

Other Georgia-based films coming out include "The Change-Up" starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman and "Wanderlust" with Jennifer Anniston and Paul Rudd.

And TV shows include MTV's "Teen Wolf," the Discovery Channel's "Auction Kings" and AMC's "The Walking Dead."

The economic impact of the filming is estimated at $2.1 billion.

The state gives a tax break of 20% to many productions, with an additional 10% break to films and shows that feature a Georgia promotional logo.
