I saw another mainstream film that credits OSM in the end credits and this
is the film adaptation of Dan Brown's novel Inferno. The credit went “©
OpenStreetMap contributors”. There was no mention of any license again.

I've decided to create a new wiki page[1] to list these films, linked from
the "Press" wiki page[2].
