With their periodic press conferences now monopolizing headlines, it’s hard to get Apple to exit your consciousness, especially if you have to write about films that ostensibly have nothing to do with the tech giant.

Well, production design is an aspect of films that often goes overlooked due to the fact that it can’t (easily) be attributed to a single person. However, it’s easy to see and recognize thematic similarities in the “look” of many films, many of which mirror the sleek, simple interface and aesthetic that Apple products have firmly entrenched in our lives. Strangely enough, these films largely come from late 70’s, and even those that don’t are forward-looking rather than contemporary. So why are no current films taking the look of the ubiquitous products to win the hearts and minds of audiences?

Probably cause all the designers that have the Apple sensibilities have been scooped up by Apple.

6. 2001

While the year 2001 didn’t give us quite the stark shiny white surfaces that this Kubrick sci-fi classic teased us with, it’s hard to look at those hibernation chambers and not think of the MacBooks that share the simple white design.

Of course, my iPod hasn’t become sentient and self-aware the way HAL did, but that’s probably just a matter of time.

“iPod, play the Spin Doctors “Two Princes.”

“I’m afraid I can’t let you do that, Penn.”

5. A Clockwork Orange

Another Kubrick film makes the list with A Clockwork Orange, a satirical look forward at 1995 London. Thankfully, London, nor any other place looked anything like this in 1995. While the design here is clearly more edgy and twisted than 99% of the industrial design out there (My MacBook Pro doesn’t have a tuft of fuchsia pubic hair, I don’t think), it screams “clean and simple,” the same words Steve Jobs no doubt screamed at his designers as they were working 100-hour weeks in order to meet a production deadline.

4. Minority Report

Minority Report, released in 2002, attempted to predict the technologies of 2054. While precogs and vertical streets are still a ways off, the touch/hand-reading interface that Tom Cruise uses to amass his information looks to be a future cousin of an iPad, and the simplicity of the devices, like the phone, seem to be something Apple is about eight months away from developing. They are still twelve months away from developing a version that gets decent reception and doesn’t require the user to hold it a certain way.

Further, as you’ll see from the above image, it’s pretty much a given that every store is going to look like an Apple store in a few years.

3. Tron (The Old One)

While the new one maintains the same DNA as the 1982 original, the original has a certain monochromatic design with one color “popping” as the glowing Apple does on the back of laptops and on the lesser-bought AppleTV. I’m guessing that more people in the Tron universe have mustaches than those on the Apple design teams, but hipsters abound these days, so the truth is really anyone’s guess.

2. Demolition Man

It’s my theory that, in the near future, all Apple products will resemble Sylvester Stallone. Not really, but wouldn’t that be something? Yeah, I guess that would be more “awful” than “something.” Anyway, while much of the Demolition Man landscape is baroquely ornate (as movies set in the future often are), there are inexplicable moments of Apple-like simplicity, such as the background of this white set, and the concept of using the “three seashells” to wipe your ass. That sounds very Apple to me.

1. Aeon Flux

This movie is often overlooked in most every aspect of its production, but the design of this film is remarkably striking and advanced for a film that no one seems to remember. While the sets aren’t quite as clean or sleek, it still maintains much of the simplistic sensibility that we use in our day-to-day lives. Also, Charlize Theron looks like what Apple would come up with if they were tasked with designing a sex doll.

Speaking of which, how much money would Apple make if they broke into that industry?

I’m thinking, and I’m just spitballing here, but I think the answer is ALL the money.
