Aston Martin in other movies & TV series beside Bond movies.

Aston Martin had been a trademark to Bond movies. Not all past Bond movies but recent with Daniel Craig. This thread is about when past movie like Italian Job or TV series like NCIS L.A which Aston Martin had Appear. Here one with Italian Job in beside his 3 Minis he had Silver Aston Martin silver 62 DB4 volante the DB5 predecessor, which got destroy by Bull dozer from his nemesis. The 2003 version 2 Aston Martins appear the Vanquish the V12 DB7 VantageVolante . One was driven Villain Edward Norton which Jason Straham was going to get but instead after getting the share of gold he went V12 DB7 after he drove one of the 3 2003 Mini Coopers.
Does Anyone know where Aston Martin appear in any TV or other movies?

    There's a lovely Aston Martin DBS in The Persuaders tv series, and it's used by previous Bond Roger Moore as well.

    Always helpful is the Internet Movie Car Database.

    One of my own all-time favorite Aston Martin spotting happened in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds:

    A very similar model to that (but with a hardtop) appears in BvS as well, driven by Bruce Wayne.

    The DB 5 (complete with missiles) appears in "The Return of the Man from UNCLE" during a chase scene, driven by Georges Lazenby. It also appears in "Catch Me If You Can", IIRC.

    That reminds me, it also appears in the Cannonball Run (1982), driven by none other than Roger Moore, playing Seymour Goldfarb JR, who thinks he's Roger Moore playing James Bond. How's that for confusing?

    I wanted to chime in here with this interesting fact: the DB5 driven by Sir Roger in Cannonball Run is, in fact, the same prototype DB5 used in Goldfinger before it was stolen from an airplane hanger in Florida in 1997. It was never recovered.

    Got sucked into the horribly awful 'Ghosts of Girlfriends Past' or whatever years back, and he drives a DB9 in that, I believe. Jason Statham drives one in the recent 'Fast & Furious' movie, as well.

    The season one episode of Mission: Impossible title "Odds On Evil" feature a Red Aston Martin DB5 and the plot of the episode is pretty similar to Casino Royale.

    Is it just me or are the wheels on that DB5 weird looking? It's other than the white wall tyres though...

    That looks more like a yank spec DB 4 to me with those wheels and the whitewalls

    There's an Aston Martin used in The Desperate Hours (1990) a remake of the 50's film of the same name.

    It was a V8 Volante, black convertible. Stunning car!

    Driven by Kelly Lynch in a chase through a desert landscape

    Pretty crap movie though!

    The DB9 was also in F&F 6 well 7. Jason Statham drove I think an Aston Martin again.
    In Roger Moore era TV series The Saint 3 Aston Martins were featured in one episode Noble Horseman by the Strange Report actor who I don't know,It was also a DB5 with same number plates that James Bond classic 007 mobile. The other 2 uncredited in the scene DB2/4 & DB4 Mk1.

    Before Bond drove in DAD. Aston Martin Vanquish was in Tombradiers in 2001 in Where Daniel Craig play a love interest with Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft & she drove the Aston Martin Vanquish before DAD,Italian Job 2003 & remake of The punisher which was originally from I think 1987 movie which Jaroen Krabbe starred. In that remake movie own by John Travolta character.

    Sometimes I get baffled by the fact that Tomb Raider being a film released in 2001 had an Aston Martin Vanquish being driven by the heroine, whereas the Vanquish wasn't released to the market until 2002.

    Perhaps she was a long time customer, so was given an early model....
    ... I know I'd give her one ! ;)

    In the 2000 remake of "Gone in 60 Second", two Aston Martin are stolen : Mary (DB7) and Barbara (DB1).

    And I saw a convertible in an episode of CSI Miami once.



    Not to mention Gabrielle's in Desperate Housewives.

    It appears in Catch me if you can as Frank wants to rip off Bond in GF.

    Its more of a homage than a ripoff IMO.

    Yes, indeed. Frank even went to getting the Sean Connery three-piece grey suit from Goldfinger.

    Although, there is one problem. The neckerchief pocket is just too high. That's what they're always getting wrong. Even in period piece films, the tailors perhaps deliberately are getting that one aspect wrong, which bothers me to be honest.

    Just look at Bond's in Goldfinger:
