so why Audi? why not Mercedes or BMW? Is the answer really obvious? Los Angeles 2035 why would Audi be the dominant car producer?

Because they probably paid to be in it.

It's called 'product placement'.

on this movie

"Most of the cars in the movie are modified pre-2004 Audi A2, A6 and TT models. There are even some unmodified cars."

Only the other day, Lady Earthsea and I were snuggled up on the couch sipping a delicious cup of Nescafe Gold Blend watching the TV, when it suddenly occurred to me how blatant some product placement can be. It only lasted a moment though, and we continued living our perfect, wonderful life.

Did anyone notice how much alike Bridget Moynahan and Senta Berger (she starred in the Quiller Memorandum)appear.

I was convinced they were mother and daughter but cant find a connection.

Anther film that, apart from the title, bears little resemblance to the book upon which it is, allegedly, based.

of product placement in films, and on TV can often be seen when there are laptops about - those little illuminated Apples are everywhere.
