World Cup movie final will feature Brazil v Evita!

The World Cup begins tomorrow! Cue an entire month of flicks and kicks, action and acting, heroes and villains.

Just as a bit of fun, I decided to translate all the teams into movies, closely related – and sometimes not at all – to each country’s name.

Based solely on cinematic terms, the competition would come down to From Russia With Love v The French Connection. (But if you listen to the pundits, it’ll really be between Brazil and Evita, with perhaps The Spanish Prisoner and Munich there or thereabouts!)

Let me know if there are better films that should have made the list.

Oh, and enjoy the football!

World Cup Movies


Movies that should have made it include:

  • Canadian Bacon
  • Big Trouble in Little China
  • Our Man in Havana
  • Dunston Checks In
  • The Purple Rose of Cairo
  • Cool Runnings
  • Borat

  • Oman on Fire
