There is a sling shown briefly in the Amazon film Infinite. It isn't shown being used and if you didn't already know what it was, you would miss it completely.

I had completely forgotten - my favorite childhood book 'Coral Island' by RM Ballantyne has a sling in it - 3 blokes stranded on an island - one uses a bow, one a spear and the protagonist uses a sling...

I wish I paid more attention as a kid! I would have been slinging from 9 years old instead of starting in my late 20's/early 30's (cant remember)

   There's an old French TV show with a slinger as the hero.  It's popped up on the forum a few times.  I can't remember the name right now.

"Thierry la fronde" or in English : Thierry the sling. He's a kind of Robin Wood  with a sling.
It's an old (sixties) black and white TV show. No historical accuracy. Watching recently, I noticed a barbed wire fence on the edge of a field. But nice heroes.
Back then, I was a kid and I liked this TV show.
