Sorry parla I think you're slightly wrong there. His choral music appears in a few films including Thirteen Days, and one of his short works was included in radio3's survey of film music last year.
As for his symphonies the most notable inclusion is his 7th in the film Taking Sides (about Furtwangler). It was also used in the French film "Tell No One" which is sometimes shown on BBC4.
I do not think I was wrong. You mentioned Hollywood and I primarily focussed on that aspect. In Hollywood, there has ben registered the use of three minor choral works, including the one in the Thirteen Days.
As for the Symphonies, they have never been used in Hollywood, based on the registered data. The film Taking Sides is an exception to the rule; it is a German-British production about a subject which lends itself perfectly to the use of Bruckner's Seventh.
Anyway, I do not preach against the use of Bruckner's music in the film industry.
I presume no-one is disputing the Hollywood origins of All About Eve.
Good "exploration finding", DSM. I guess there is always an exception to the rule. I have seen the film, long ago, but I do not recall the "presence" of Bruckner's Fourth there...
In my list of the registered films (mostly from Hollywood), there are three entries: the Ave Maria in F from "Three of Hearts", the Os Justi from "Oscar and Lucinda" and "Virga Jesse" in e minor from "Thirteen Days".
