SMEG STARS IN SECURITY FILM WITH ANTONIO BANDERAS
Smeg’s retro range of fridges, dishwashers, and small appliances all play a starring role in a blockbuster film released in July 2017. Our iconic appliances feature throughout the new ‘Security’ filmstarring Antonio Banderas, Ben Kingsley and Gabriella Wright. The film focuses on an ex special services veteran (Banderas) who is down on his luck and desperate for work. He takes a job at a shopping mall as a security guard. During his first night shift, he opens the doors to a young distressed girl. The girl has fled the police while she was being transported to testify as a trial witness in a large case. Hot on her heels is a psychopathic hijacker (Ben Kingsley) with a band of resourceful henchmen, all determined to stop at nothing to eliminate the young witness.
Throughout the action packed adventure, events unfold in a US shopping mall which has a Smeg pop-up right in the heart of the mall. Our beautiful products witness drama at all levels, including high octane shoot-outs, dramatic deaths and tense planning. Many of the products ended up being used as shields but held up to the gunfire like true champions!
