Audi Publishes List of Films Featuring its Cars

The true cinephiles among us may be relishing the opportunity all this social distancing has afforded us to catch up on some movies. And naturally, we want movies that we can see ourselves in, movies that reflect our reality, movies that speak to us on an emotional and primordial level. And that means movies with Audis.

Fortunately, Audi has kindly seen fit to furnish us with a list of 15 movies that cast Audis in prominent roles.

The list counts Steven Spielberg and John Frankenheimer among its directors and such esteemed writers as David Mamet and EL James. Check them all out this week for bonus internet points.
