Rhode Islanders say the movie is a huge economic opportunity for them.

“They’re spending tens upon tens upon tens upon tens of millions of dollars to direct into our state,” one resident said. “So, the impact — just the direct impact is going to be substantial.”

The economic impact is expected to be about $100 million.
