Movies’ Lowest Paid Actors

Movies’ Lowest Paid Actors

On Tuesday I told you about some of the recent trends at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. I had planned to tell you about another trend I spotted but decided it deserved a post on its own.

Movies.

That’s right. Movies were an unexpected trend at this year’s Chicago Auto Show. I saw no less than 5 examples of vehicles actually used in movies, including upcoming movie releases from Disney and Marvel.

A trend at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show was movies as attendees saw vehicles from The Black Panther, A Wrinkle in Time, The Last Jedi, Ant Man and the Wasp as well as Steve McQueen's Bullitt. - SahmReviews.com

The first one I spotted at the show was the beautiful Lexus featured in Marvel’s Black Panther which opens in theaters tonight! With a stunning Vibranium-infused self-healing paint treatment, claws across the mirrors, Wakandan vibranium engineering and an interior modeled after his suit, this Lexus LC500 was worth a good look.

An interactive display and a Nissan Leaf rounded out a display for A Wrinkle in Time. The movie starring Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey opens in theaters on March 9th.

The Black Panther wasn’t the only Marvel movie to make it into the show. Hyundai has a display to feature the Veloster from Ant Man and the Wasp. Mark your calendar for July 6th to see the Veloster on the big screen along with Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Pena, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas.

Did you happen to catch Star Wars The Last Jedi in theaters last December? You don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to recognize the look conveyed in this Nissan display. If you’re lucky, you’ll even catch BB-8 in action!

I’m not old enough to remember the original, but in honor of the 50th anniversary of Steve McQueen’s Bullitt, Ford has released a Mustang paying homage to the original. If you’re a fan of the classic, stop by the Ford display to check it out!

I know there was a Jurassic Park Super Bowl commercial for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler but I didn’t see a display for that one at the show. If you happen to visit, let me know if I missed it!

Auto shows are known for showcasing the latest trends in the automotive industry, but this is the first time I’ve seen so much pop culture make a presence. It was so exciting that I wanted to make several more trips around the show floor to see if I could find any others.

Which of these movie vehicles are you most excited about?

  1. OH MY gosh these cars are AMAZING! I am not extremely car crazy but I would have been if I’d seen these ones at the show. What a fun trend!

    1. Nicole says:

      I agree, Paula. I hope this continues next year because it was pretty cool seeing vehicles from movies we already watched. Then we went to see Black Panther this weekend and I was giddy when the Lexus showed up in the scene!

  2. Stacie says:

    I LOVE car shows, and this is why. I’m not a huge car fanatic, but I love going to auto shows. It’s awesome to be able to check out the newest cars and see all the extras they have there to make it more fun.

  3. Brenda Kight says:

    All of these cars are beautiful. If I had to pick one it would be the Lexus! Dreaming!

  4. Liz Mays says:

    Gosh these cars were so cool. The cars in Disney and Marvel movies always look great on screen but I never really thought about it until now.

  5. Those cars were the hit of a lot of movies. I don’t remember Bullitt either but it was supposed to have some great chases. I can’t wait to see Black Panther and that car in it.

  6. Cyn Gagen says:

    Gosh, what fun to get to see those cars. I’m not really a car person but I’d really enjoy that.

  7. Randi says:

    We just saw the Black Panther Lexus at the DFW Auto Show and it was so cool!

  8. Amy says:

    I think it is so cool to get to experience these cars up close a personal. I would have love to see the Wrinkle in Time one a little better.

  9. Lisa Favre says:

    Whoa! That Lexus with the glowing lights is really cool. I never have been to a car show before but it looks like fun.

  10. Sue E says:

    I am a classic oldie movie fan! Even though the othe cars are classy, I am going for Steve McQueen’s Ford Mustang from Bullitt! Boy do I feel old! I was only 12 years old!
