E-5 in the movies

A film called Broken City with Mark Wahlberg and Russel Crowe will be released in January 2013.

What is Mark Wahlberg using as his camera ? An E-5 of course !

Re: E-5 in the movies

You know, I noticed this just the other day on the TV trailer (Sky Movies?) - it took several attempts at slo-mo rewinding to get the frame that confirmed my suspicions!

Hope this link works,

I don't believe the similar font for the film poster to the Olympus logo is a coincidence.

Re: E-5 in the movies

Ah - so this is the film of the scandal with Morgan Freeman playing Michael Woodford?

LOL!

Re: E-5 in the movies

I saw a trailer for the film on TV last night and notice the font. Olympus is supposed to be the secret service code name for the Whitehouse. I'm surprised it was rebuilt after the aliens destroyed it in Independence Day.
