Apple Won't Let Bad Guys Use iPhones in Movies

Not a villian

Rian Johnson is the director of "Knives Out" and "The Last Jedi", and he said Apple doesn't want VILLAINS to use their phones.

Johnson said "Apple lets you use iPhones in movies but . . . and this is very pivotal if you're watching a mystery movie ,the  bad guys cannot have iPhones on camera." He joked, quote, "Every single filmmaker that has a bad guy in their movie that's supposed to be a secret wants to murder me right now."

 

Apple hasn't commented.  But there's been plenty of talk about how crazy they are about protecting their image in the past. In fact, there's a "Wired" article  from  back in 2002, which pointed out that all the good guys on the show "24" use Macs, and all the bad guys use Windows PCs.
