New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
So I recently saw Moon (great movie, by the way). I kind of laughed when I saw that they used Eurostile in the film for "Lunar Industries" as well as signage and such on the moon base (the titles were Bank Gothic - another popular choice). Clearly this is a visual cliché, but II'm having a hard time remembering where else I've seen this. So I'm asking typophile - what other movies/tv shows can you think of?
Preferably within the movie/series, but if it's used for titles that's okay too. I did look up Eurostile and Microgramma on Wikipedia, and came up with these:
2001: A Space Odyssey
The Andromeda Strain
Gerry Anderson's Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Space: 1999 and UFO
Several Star Trek movies, and ST: Enterprise
BSG (main title)
If there's enough of them I'll even make a video compilation (aka a supercut).
