In this Quentin Tarantino film. Mr. Orange by Tom Roth is one of the first, if not the first, movie character who inspired the brow line frame designer sunglasses (AKA RB3016 Clubmaster). Not exactly the look from the ‘60s that you’ve been familiar with. It’s a good guy’s perfect bad guy cover up.

#2 Top Gun (1986) Starring Tom Cruise

Top gun wasn’t just Tom Cruise’s ticket to fame, it’s Ray Ban Aviator’s too! Maverick takes it everywhere; from the volleyball scene to the sorry-I’m-late-for-dinner-date scene. It’s brilliant, it’s badass and it’s dangerous, and it’s everything Maverick is all about!

#3 Catch Me If You Can (2002) Starring Leonardo DiCaprio

Every dream boy’s dream-come-true is to steal a lot of money and get away with it. But it takes more than a villain within to be able to pull off a Ray-Ban RB2140 Wayfarer in you – Frank (Dicaprio) can tell you more about that! Agent Carl seemed to have a thought about it and, maybe decided to go all out just to get his hands on those glasses too!

#4 Daredevil (2003) Starring Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck RB3119 Olympian

Dare Devil, Matt Murdock in RB3119 Olympian.

Everything about this film is badass; the casting, the plot, the fight scenes and the daredevil-ish ending! No wonder they tied this up with a Ray-Ban RB3119 Olympian, all the more reason to call it hell raiser. Matt Murdock flashes it the way a devil guardian should – mysterious and unpredictable. Sharp edge lens + brow line frame = the perfect paraphernalia for the big screen!

#5 MIB (2002) Starring Will Smith & Tommy Lee

MIB RB2027 & RB2030 Predator

It’s the big guns, the “neuralyzer” and those Ray Ban Predators (RB2027 Predator Sunglasses). It doesn’t get any MIB-er than that! Will Smith and Tommy Lee hit the home run on this one as it was tagged the highest-grossing film title ever franchised by Sony. MIB 1 earned $589.4 in 1997, $441.8 Million in 2002 and $599.4 Million in 2011. On the other side, reports from Ray Ban indicate that the popularity of this movie helped influenced their dramatic growth in sales as well.

#6 The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) Starring Brad Pitt

On this film Brad Pitt introduced a whole new meaning to the word “tragic”. Benjamin was born with an unusual condition that caused him to struggle most of his early life. Brad portrayed his character through different stages of life and intriguingly, throughout the film, he features different pair of Ray Ban Sunglasses. One of which is the photo above were he’s on a motorbike sporting a Ray-Ban 3025 Aviator.

#7 Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) Starring Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp RB3138 Shooter

A classic Johhny Depp in a classic Ray-Ban Shooter, perfect!

Johnny abandoned a Mint 400 road race that he was investigating and blasted off to Vegas with his RB3138 Shooter and his Lawyer and best buddy, Dr Gonzo. The film inspired by Hunter S Thomson’s book was received with mixed emotion. But since then, the Shooters, once again, has pave its way to the big screens.

#8 Dirty Harry (1971) Starring Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood RB4089 Balorama

Dirty Harry doesn’t get any dirtier than a Ray-Ban Balorama!

Dirty Harry was never realized to have four more series after its 1971 debut. Timeless and mechanic, that’s the Clint Eastwood version of a cop with dirty tricks up his sleeves. He’s got the perfect package already but the “Balorama” puts the ice to the brim.
