Hollywood Brands Quiz: Product Placement at Its Best?

Product placement, marketing genius, manipulation: whatever you call it, the seventh art and marketing muscle are frequent box office companions. In other words, Hollywood has long had an affair with the mega brands.

We saw little George Bailey endorsing National Geographic magazine in the 1946 Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life. We saw 1998’s love letter to AOL, You’ve Got Mail, also starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.

Which other Hollywood movies have prominently displayed current products and brands? Test your brand marketing trivia quotient to find out (before considering whether or not you care).

  2. Ethan Hunt uses some of these guns in Mission: Impossible III.
  3. In The Da Vinci Code, Robert Langdon and Sophie Neveu use this car to make a getaway in Paris. (This same car is also used by Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther.)
