California may be home to Hollywood. But that doesn't mean all movies are filmed on the locations we have to offer.

Out of the top 100 highest-grossing movies of 2016, only 12 were mostly filmed in California. This puts the state in fourth place for movie-making locales around the globe.

That's according to a recently released report from FilmL.A., a local production permitting office. 

For more on what all of this means for Los Angeles, Take Two's A Martinez spoke with FilmL.A.'s president Paul Audley.
