It seems like Hollywood has been taking over Calgary in the past weeks, with a slew of celebrity stars in town shooting various movies.

Kiefer Sutherland and Demi Moore were spotted in a southwest pub last weekend (where Sutherland drunkenly took off his shirt and danced for his fans, in case you missed it.) The pair are in Alberta to shoot parts of the upcoming film 'Foresaken,' which will also co-star Sutherland's father, Donald.

There have also been sightings of Matthew McConaughey in the Eau Clair area. McConaughey is joined by castmates Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain and Casey Affleck, who will shoot scenes in small towns around Alberta for director Christopher Nolan's new sci-fi flick, 'Interstellar,' reports the Calgary Herald.

With all these great actors in town, HuffPost Alberta has compiled a list of the best and/or most famous movies shot in Alberta.
