Whether behind the scenes of an indie film project, or on the red carpet at one of Hollywood’s biggest-ever global theatrical releases, Lexus is passionately invested in the creativity and culture of film.
Launched in 2013, Lexus Short Films not only gave upcoming filmmakers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring their passions to the big screen. It also helped many of these directors gain recognition with awards earned at independent film festivals all over the world. Lexus is delighted to have supported these talented filmmakers over three seasons.
For years, the collaboration between filmmakers and Lexus has been built on a shared goal of elevating cinematic moments and enhancing the lifestyle of the characters around it.
Throughout a number of Hollywood blockbuster films such as Black Panther®, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets®, The Island® and Minority Report®, Lexus has played a role in representing a director’s vision and dream of what the future might look like.
For Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets®, Lexus partnered with Luc Besson to create the SKYJET from the 27th century.
The SKYJET is both of the future and firmly rooted in the present: a super-sleek, futuristic single-seater craft that incorporates details such as an adapted interpretation of Lexus’ signature spindle grille and a similar headlight design to that of the Lexus LC coupe.
