e28 sightings in films

Post by bigjay973 »

my wife and i were having our movie night... we were watching the Crying Game(i wanted to watch Heat) and i spotted this beauty.

i started to wonder, in what other films could our beloved e28's, have played a supporting role. anyone seen any?

Not an E28, but richly deserving of a mention:

"Mesrine: L'instinct de mort" (2008):

That's not an E28...it's a mermaid.

If you quit saying "Yes", then you probably wouldn't be so butt-hurt. Where's Matt when you need him..... :bawl:

Mothman with Richard Gere. I couldn't make it through the entire film.

Anyone else here have a wife that is tired of you blurting out in the middle of the movie "Hey! Look, an Exx!"

I debated wether to post or not on this, knowing I am putting Shawns health at risk.

I watched American Psycho last night, and there were 2 E28s in rapid succession towards the end, parked on the street.
BTW, hilarious movie, despite some of the greusome scenes.

I thought there was a newer thread, but I can't locate it. Saw an E12 in Old Guard on netflix.

Forgot to mention when it was running earlier this year, but "Briarpatch" (USA, April 2020) featured an EU unbadged E28 throughout the shows run.
The main character (Rosario Dawson) ends up driving it off into the sunset, so to speak.
