Windows Phone spotted in new movie trailer for 'The Canyons'

Hey, who you calling cheap?

The Canyons (IMdB) is a new film coming out in 2013 from writer Brett Easton Ellis (American Psycho), long-time director Paul Schrader (American Gigolo, Affliction) and stars Lindsey Lohan. The new trailer is a spoof off of 1970’s grindhouse, low budget films, which is sort of interesting but of course what caught our eye is the Windows Phone.

Sure, product placements are a dime a dozen but it’s still kind of neat to see what looks to be a Lumia 710 (?) used for a key scene in the movie.  Exposure is exposure. Full trailer is after the break. Thanks, HikiSpray, for the tip

  • Lindsay lohan is also in this movie.. Starring as tara.. Take a look guys.. It seems hardcore.. :P :D
  • are you saying this about steven hawking as well?
  • didn't know Lindsay Lohan is still acting :P
  • I lost interest at about the 5s mark, but then I saw WP7. LoL a lot more interesting... :)
  • That looks like a quality production! Er, not! =D
  • apparently lohan gets her baps out in this, will be one for mr skin.
  • Wow, what the hell is this crap?!
    Who's the dumbass who paid to produce this... film?
  • Yeah I don't think this "homage" or throwback is going to work. "James Deen"? Please!
  • Actually it's kind of unfortunate that a Windows Phone is shown along the text of " as the budget."
    As far as Lohan is concerned, I guess a paycheck is a paycheck. It's not that she gets tons of movie offers.
  • I'm pretty sure that's a Lumia 800, Daniel
  • Watched it until I seen the phone.
  • Sure there's exposure, but I don't think anyone will go buy a WP after watching this. No one but us Windows Phone geeks will probably even know this is a Windows Phone.
  • +1
  • Two phones, neither looks like a 710.  The first one where you see the screen looks like it has squared corners, like a 800 or 900.  The second one (the one where you see the edge) has the same shape as the 710, but the gray battery cover is covering more than the 710's batter cover does AND the buttoms on the front look like they belong to a Nokia running Symbian.
  • What the hell...
    Anywho, I also just recently spotted a magenta Lumia 800 (or Lumia 900?) in an episode of "Parks and Recreation"--for those who watch this awesome show, it was when Ben and April get stuck in traffic while enroute to Pawnee (hillarious episode btw!)
  • Jean Deen is a porn star, and Lindsay seems to be declining.
    The last week in an episode of Castle on AXN Latin America, he showed his phone and is a Windows Phone, and seeking an astronomical observatory
