When I'm not navigating the interwebs looking for technology news, you'll typically find me at home watching a movie. I'll admit it, I am a movie buff in my spare time. My two worlds collided recently when I learnt that an upcoming thriller movie, 7500
, will feature a cameo from not only a BlackBerry PlayBook, but also a BlackBerry Torch 9860 (It could be a 9850, but I'll assume it's a GSM-variant because he is flying overseas). You can see the RIM product placement start at the 0:41
This movie isn't for the faint of heart. It's from the same director as "The Grudge"
A claustrophobic thriller set on a transpacific airliner where the passengers encounter what appears to be a supernatural force. A group of passengers board a plane flying from LA to Tokyo, a routine flight which begins to deteriorate when a passenger dies on board, triggering, apparently, other deaths as well.
