WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — North Carolina witnessed another year of record-breaking film numbers in 2012.

Year-end projections show productions had direct in-state spending of more than $376 million and created more than 4,100 crew positions for the state’s workforce.

These numbers eclipsed last year’s record-breaking $220 million in spending and 3,300 crew jobs.

Locally, the movie industry was fueled by the making of the blockbuster “Iron Man 3” in and around Wilmington and “Safe Haven,” based on the Nicholas Sparks book, which shot in and around Southport.
