Warner Bros.

We’re not naive, we know all movies are trying to sell us something. Hollywood is America and America is capitalism, whatever. There’s no problem with a nice subliminal messaging campaign every once and a while or an envy-worthy scene making us wonder if we should have bought that Forever 21 skirt after all, but some movies took their product placement a little too far. If we can’t watch a movie without wondering why Superman goes to IHOP so often or what Krispy Kreme doughnuts have to do with the Power Rangers, their marketing could probably have been a tiny bit more subtle.

These twenty-one films really overdid it with product placement to the extent that they were basically just one long advertisement.
