D-90s in the Movies

I was on a flight back from the UK yesterday, and they showed an independent film called, "This is Not a Love Song." It has some footage of D-90s as people are hunting the countryside for some bumbling fugitives. Nothing special....probably only 30-seconds total, but it appeated to be an ST, with a hood mounted spare. Blue, I believe. I was delerious from jetlag, so the details are spotty.

It's definitely not worth seeing for the D-90s, but FYI.

Isn't there an ongoing thread somewhere in here regarding D-90s in film? Or did I see that on the Series 1 MSN group?

Well...

Stephen King's Dreamcatcher had lots of a D110 as the tactical vehicle of the Alien-fighting secret police led by Morgan Freeman.

Anyone care to add?

i THINK the movie 28 Days had some good coverage of the Wolf D-90's and 110's

Let's see what do we have so far?

1) Tomb Raider (Custom LRNA 110)
2) Dreamcatcher (D110)
3) Italian Job (?)
4) 28 Days (MoD D90s, D110, 130, FC)
5) This Is Not a Love Song (D90s)

Defenders are a bit trendy I should think.

Let's keep it going...

cant forget THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY (series galor)

I think in the movie Heist there is a glimpse of a lifted RR classic in one of the chase scenes.

'Die Hard 2' The bad guys drove a Range Rover

'Cliffhanger' I'm pretty sure I saw Sly Stallone driving a 110 SW (or maybe a 90 SW)

And of course, '3 Weddings and a Funeral' Kristen Scott Thomas drove a Series III I think

It may not have been Cliffhanger but I remember Stallone driiving a blueish grey Land rover in one of his movies but i think it was an SII or SIII. (Later - it was an SIII - check this out!!!

One of the more oscure ones: Hard Boiled.
I think there were some near the end as ambulances but they might have been Toyotas. I was pretty tired the last time I saw it.

there is a series I in the closing shots of Ice Cold in Alex and also midway through 633 Squadron, these both being WWII movies makes the LR a time machine!

Talking of time machines Dr. Who was always good for a bit of Landy spotting especially in the late 1960's/ early 70's
