Conlangs in the movies

I just got back from seeing "Blade: Trinity", and there's Esperanto in
In one scene, the word "Esperanto" is clearly visible on a billboard in
the background; in another scene, the character Whistler buys a
newspaper and he and the kiosk proprietor have a brief exchange in
Esperanto; and finally in another scene the police station has a
bilingual illuminated sign by the entrance which reads "Police/Policejo"
above and "Protect and Serve/Protekti kaj Servi". Finally, another
character, King, recuperating from injuries sustained while battling
vampires, is lying in bed watching the movie Incubus!
Yeeeah. It totally made my day. :-)
