beautiful superhero who then uses her powers exact revenge, leaving a path of destruction in the process.

Product tie-ins like this one are not uncommon in modern movies, though the Charger has an especially interesting opportunity with this particular film. Both the Charger and the romance / action movie genre were created decades ago, and both are now being re-visited in a fresh new way.

"Like Ivan Reitman who wanted to take a fresh look at the romantic/action film genre, Dodge wanted moviegoers to take a fresh look at the Dodge Charger" said Tom Loveless, Director -- Dodge Marketing and Global Communications.

The Charger was chosen to complement the sensibility of Wilson's character, an architect.

Advertising for the movie includes a poster that features a shot of the Charger smashed beneath Uma Thurman's fist. The poster and nine-foot tall standee appear in thousands of theaters across the country, and the film is to be released July 21.
