In Entrapment, Catherine Zeta Jones refers to the XK8 as a beautiful car.

The new Mechanic has the E type, which mostly sits in a garage, except for one scene towards the end. It was an ok movie, although fairly predictable. I watched it on a flight, then tried watching the Green Hornet. The bad guy opens the movie by getting out of an Xj8. I gave up on the movie after a while, so I don't know if the jag reappears.

You really have to be dedicated to suffer through a bad movie just to enjoy a scene with a Jaguar in it.

Now, "In a New York Heartbeat" seems to be shaping up to be watchable, lets see what happenes there. Should be out this summer, with that 1950 MK V

There's a black convertible XK8 in "Employee of the Month" with Matt Dillon, and Christina Applegate. You don't see much of it until the end.

Just saw a red XJS convertible in the Big Lebowski, driven (and crashed)by Bunny Lebowski - and it appeared to be a manual trans?

You won't believe it. That stunning XKE is blown up in the end. They will never make that car again! That can't be replaced you Hollywood ********!

I believe the penalty should be prison time for destoying a classic car in a stupid useless movie.

Also, Patrick Stewart drives a nice X300 (silver) in Safe House, and
the bad guy in the latest Bond film has an X308 Daimler Super V8.
