I'm looking for the name of a movie where the only scene I recall is one where the actors are moving through a very large warehouse themed environment. It looks very sterile, mostly shades of white. They enter easily enough but soon they're in danger and need to start dodging these hovering/flying machines moving large white crates of the sort you'd see in a modern warehouse, or dockyard/shipyard.

Any movies with this sort of environment will do as well for inspiration, but I do recall one specifically.

Thanks for all your help.

Updated in response to elaboration questions: - It was English - I believe the two trying to escape were a man and a woman - It was live action - It was relatively new, definitely made within the last 5 years - I believe I recall the flying machines being mainly hovering transportation carriers/lifts, with just structural arms like you'd see on a 3 or 4 "fingered" grasping crane attachment, but I can't really be sure as recollection is foggy.

    Was it live action? In English? Where did you see it and when? Can you describe the flying machines? Can you describe any of the actors: where the male or female, race, how many, what they were wearing? Jun 18, 2015 at 14:44
  • A fight in a warehouse full of moving equipment and machinery with lots of dodging is a very common movie trope, sci-fi or otherwise. You'll have to narrow it down for us to even start guessing.

You may be thinking of the car factory chase scene from Minority Report (2002). It's not a perfect match for your description, but it does take place in a rather clean factory environment with a lot of white.

    This is exactly that I was thinking, but I wasn't able to find any pictures from it showing that scene. Jun 18, 2015 at 19:00
  • Agreed - I thought of this or the 2012 Total Recall.

As others have said this is a very vague nugget to go on.

How about Cargo? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0381940/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

I don't remember it exactly, but there's a scene where some of the characters have to get through a warehouse-y area on their spaceship which lasts for a decent length of time (15 minutes or so if I recall) where they have to avoid the way the ship is moving around containers. It came out in 2009 which fits the time period.
