Villains cannot use iPhones in movies.


In a recent candid interview with Vanity Fair, Rian Johnson, director of 'Knives Out' told us all a huge industry secret. 'Villains are not allowed to use iPhones'. Rather surprised yet rather not when re-watching his acclaimed film, the villain does not use an iPhone.


Stretching this further it can be seen that in many films the villain doesn't use an iPhone, Jordan Peele's 'Get Out' is another fine example of this as mobile phones end up playing a huge part to the third act.


This does seem to be a rather legit claim from Rian Johnson. It isn't at all surprising that Apple have this un-written rule in place. It will be interesting to see if any of Apple's own series of films on Apple TV+ have their villains using iPhones.
