    Near the beginning of The Tomorrow War, world leaders in the year 2023 (featuring, for some reason, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Gordon Brown and Theresa May) declare a global military draft to fight an alien invasion in the 2050s. The montage includes stock footage of a pen (maybe a Pilot?) signing something

    Great film with a brilliant cast. He takes the pen and unthreads it, then empties the converter, blotching his signature line. So it's a modern pen. But I couldn't quite identify it.

    I wonder how much more of a dramatic effect it would have been if it had been a lever filler.

    That would be more dramatic. They probably had some Gen X type assembling the props.

    Screenshots in this post. A Chinese lookalike, possibly Hero 329?

    My second clip from a Get Smart episode. I can't binge watch this (or anything), but watch an episode now and then. In the episode Dr. Yes from season 3, Agents 86 and 99 are in a room where the moving walls are about to crush them to death. Luckily, 86 is able to prop them open with his "oversized mini-girder fountain pen". Then 99's mini diamond headed drill gets them out the door again.

    If he had called it his "mini-girder ballpoint", it would have been equally fictional, but I wouldn't have included it here. I wonder what the largest actual working fountain pens are.

    Did the oversized mini-girder fountain pen come with an architect grind?
