With the launch this week of a new initiative to promote film making in the Bay of Plenty, we wondered what great movies would have been like... had they been made here.

A not-for-profit society was launched this week to showcase and grow the local film industry, with sights set on the potential of developing a film studio in Tauranga.

Here's our pick of the flicks so far:
