The Espresso machine from the Green Hornet was made by the prop department and didn't actually work at all. We spent a week at the mansion pouring coffee and after much discussion Seth Rogan went with the rosetta. Longshot coffee did all the coffee in the movie, Australian company based in Los Angeles. It was a lot of fun doing this movie and i'm about to go out and buy the DVD today hope to see some of us in the extra features. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Longshot-Coffee/368663552473

In the American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie, male protagonist Mikael Blomqvist's editor, Erika, has a Rancilio Silvia at her place.

Just saw French movie "Le Bal" the other day. Not only is this a must see movie if you are a sucker for satire. It has a dark humor out of this world with no dialogue whatosever. Just dancing (!). The movie shows a small dance hall at 7 different periods in time, ranging from 1936 to 1983. All with the same actors playing different parts. Only the bartender is the same (and aging).
