Femme Fatale

The movie Femme Fatale, a 2012 from Brian De Palma, have Pentax well feature in the hands of Antonio Banderas.

You can see one P1Z (I guess), mounted with a FA* 28-75 and a 645n with some kind of a digital back.

And I think there are a great lenght of the second season of Stranger Things that have a Pentax ME, I guess.

We are much more mainstream than we think

This looks like an interesting movie, though there is already a thread about it and the Spotmatic

I used to be one of those people that could visually identify every year of VW beetle, if they hadn't been frankenstein'd with wrong year parts. I've long since lost that knowledge. Mine was a 1959, and my Bus a 1963 deluxe.

If the film setting is “early 60s” a Pentax makes sense, as it was very popular, but the SPII wasn’t out until later. If before ‘64 it should have been a non-metered model. The Spotmatic was introduced in ‘64. The SPII in ‘71.
But movies seldom get such details right, and it doesn’t affect the story.
I was once contacted about loaning my VW Beetle for a movie set in the late ‘50s, but mine was a ‘62, and I was amazed they thought of that level of detail.
I drive a '67.

The savvy types will already be scouring eBay and snatching up every camera with the "Asahi Pentax" logo stamped on it and then re-selling them in 5 or 6 months after the movie premieres.

I had a suspicion, confirmed by some sleuths on Photrio, that the Japanese Satanist in Rosemary's Baby used a Pentax. So there's that...

My Mexican 1973 model would probably mess with your mind...

It ended up in every section of my university newspaper at one time or another... that was a very long time ago...
