The most popular alien movie in America, according to Google, is the critically acclaimed Arrival. It came out on top in Alaska, Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Washington and Wyoming. Although it was only released last year, it’s already on its way to becoming a sci-fi classic.

In second place is another recent movie: Star Trek Beyond. The third movie in the new series was searched for most in Alabama, Maine, North Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin. It beat both recent Star Wars movies, which only won two states each; Indiana and Oregon for The Force Awakens and New Mexico and Vermont for Rogue One.

The original Alien is joint third with four states: Georgia, Illinois, Michigan and New York. Joining it in third is 2015’s surprise hit 10 Cloverfield Lane, which topped searches in Idaho, Kansas, New Hampshire and West Virginia.
