Superman movie in Omaha

Thanks largely to Alexander Payne, quite a few movies have been filmed in Nebraska.

His movies "Citizen Ruth, " "Election, " "About Schmidt" and, yes, "Nebraska" have all been filmed and taken place in part or entirely in the state.

But it doesn't stop at Payne's contribution. Nebraska-shot movies that have received fanfare include: "Terms of Endearment, " "Up in the Air, " "Yes Man" and "To Wong Foo."

Goofing around on IMDB, I was surprised to find a few more movies that were filmed here, some pretty dang notable in the annals of film history, movies like ...

"Dumb and Dumber" (1994)

There's that scene where Lloyd takes the wrong way, heading to Lincoln, Neb. instead of Aspen, Colo. Of course, nowhere would this pairing of signs exist. IMDB lists Nebraska as a filming location. But whether the wrong way scene - or the subsequent one in which Lloyd TOTALLY redeems himself - were Nebraska-shot? Can't be sure. It does look like it could be Nebraska.

Warning: Video has a little profanity.

"Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa" (2013)

In the Johnny Knoxville-starring comedy, our elderly hero lives in Lincoln. No scenes were filmed there, but they did shoot footage of the Nebraska State Capitol to cut in with the scenes set in Lincoln.

"Dances with Wolves" (1990)

Though the best picture winner was almost entirely shot in South Dakota, its filming locations included Nebraska. A note at the end of the film mentions that the last band of free Sioux Indians surrendered at Fort Robinson, Neb.

"Airport" (1970)

The 1970 movie "Airport" was set in the fictional Lincoln International Airport near Chicago, but part of it was filmed in Lincoln.

“Elizabethtown" (2005)

Cameron Crowe's romantic comedy filmed scenes at and near Scotts Bluff National Monument, west of Scottsbluff and Gering, and Carhenge, north of Alliance.

“The Assassination of Richard Nixon” (2004)

This Sean Penn movie you might not remember shot footage in several downtown and midtown Omaha locations.
