Font crush: Wes Anderson's use of Futura

I've been on a Wes Anderson movie kick this past week, watching The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic and I'm loving his use of the font Futura throughout the movies. I knew he used a lot of Futura in his movies, but the more I see it, the more I love it. Futura is a geometric font created in the 20s by Paul Renner. Anderson uses the font not only in captions and scene markers, but also on the actual set in the form of signs and props.
Look closely. The labels on Margo's library shelves are also in Futura.

One of these things is not like the others: Can you spot which one isn't in Futura?
