Atari ST in Jason Bourne (2016)

I just sat down to watch Jason Bourne (2016) and 4:56 minutes in I see an Atari ST sat on a desk.

yeah I noticed it immediately when I saw it at the pictures. To be honest I went off these films, they all end like they start so they can keep churning them out forever. Even the films' criticism of america's tyranny is meaningless because that criticism is just the hook to sell this product. Ever watch Network?

No not heard of it. Will take a look.

It would be interesting to have a list of where people have spotted Atari ST’s in films or TV shows.

I think there was one in an episode of Halt and Catch Fire - great box set.

He wasn't suggesting it for ST content. :wink:

Yes, there was. I enjoyed that whole series.

The most recent I saw were a couple of STs in the background in one scene in Atomic Blonde (2017), which was quite period appropriate, since the movie was set in Berlin in the '80s. I made a couple of screengrabs. Sorry, this is as good as it gets, since there were off in the background...

Wow, look at how those STs looked back in the days, good reference material if you're looking into retrobrighting your computer.
