The Great Movie Car Race – but who wins?

New Aston Martin Vantage
Here's a Tungsten Silver model in case you were bored of the Lime Essence. Oh, you may think it looks a bit like the DB10. That's because the James Bond car was actually based on an early draft of the new Vantage

Over the past few decades the film industry has exploded, with an endless number of films winning awards, breaking box office records and incorporating the best forms of technology to make our film watching experience as best as it can be. The way in which we view a film has changed dramatically since not so long ago. Film fanatics now wait in anticipation for the release of new films and have the luxury of watching them in 2D or 3D and enjoy the movie on state of the art screens, including IMAX and Super Screen.

The film industry has provided us with movies which have recreated famous historical events, made us cry with laughter and screamed in fear. Whether it’s watching the highest grossing film of all time, Avatar, or singing along to the ABBA inspired Mamma Mia! The way in which production companies incorporate skill and technology to create the best movies possible, has left film fans across the world having high expectations for future films.

What makes a film famous?

Production companies want to create a story behind the film which will put it at the top of the industry and make it famous for all the right reasons. Although the success of any film will depend strongly on its story and the message behind it, many film fans remember famous movies because of the characters in it and a vehicle or asset their associated with. Many famous films such as James Bond, Fast & Furious and Batman are all popular films due to the distinctive vehicles used within them.

Many famous films have featured some of the world’s most powerful and expensive cars, as well as specially designed vehicles created to support the story behind the film, just like that of DMC DeLorean used in Back to the Future.
