German luxury vehicle manufacturer BMW aims to emulate the Hollywood experience again through its marketing. After a seven-year absence, the brand film series, BMW Films, will be resurrected.
This return is set alongside the release of a short film featuring Uma Thurman, Pom Klementieff and a BMW i7 M70. The film will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.
Success for BMW Films began in 2001 with an award-winning short film series called The Hire, starring Clive Owen and overseen by filmmaker David Fincher’s production company.
The James Bond-inspired shorts produced eight entries at less than 10 minutes each that were fundamentally excuses to showcase BMWs in car chases.
