It appears in the 1979 film Moonraker and was later re-imagined for the 2012 video game 007 Legends.Budgetary issues caused the film to be primarily shot in France, with locations also in Italy, Brazil, Guatemala and the United States. The soundstages of Pinewood Studios in England, traditionally used for the series, were only used by the special effects team.
