Linotype: the film by Doug Wilson was the first use of Metro Nova. He asked the Monotype designer Toshi Omagari to digitize the original Metro for use in the film, which later became a proper revival project, Metro Nova. There seems to be a misunderstanding that the film used Metro Nova (this article for instance), but it used the faithful digitisation of the hot metal Metro for the sake of authenticity. Everything made after the film itself, notably DVD cover and booklet, was set in Metro Nova.
