Chryslers in Films

Chryslers in Films | Westpointe CJDR | Yukon, OK

Our appreciation of the sophisticated Chrysler lineup at Westpointe CDJR is no mystery. Therefore, it makes sense that we would get a kick out of spotting Chryslers in films! Here are a few instances where you can spot a Chrysler vehicle on the big screen.

The Great Dictator (1940)

Charlie Chaplin fans may remember spotting a 1932 Chrysler Imperial Convertible in Chaplin’s satirical—and at the time controversial—film The Great Dictator, which makes fun of Nazi Germany.

The Hangover Part III (2013)

In the third film in this comedy trilogy, the Wolfpack gang is at it again. In one part of the movie, their minivan—a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country—gets rammed off the road by a semi-truck. Of course, any proud driver of the Town & Country would never stand for this in real life. But in The Hangover Part III, this leads the Wolfpack to be taken hostage, steering the film in a wild plot direction.

Logan (2017)

If you’ve ever been curious about what Chrysler will look like in the future, check out Logan, the final film in the Wolverine segment starring Hugh Jackman. The film depicts a 2024 Chrysler E8. Obviously, that car doesn’t exist (yet?) but it’s fun to imagine a long limousine version of the Chrysler 300.
