Until this thread I hadn't even thought about it. Maybe folks in the movie industry just think the braces look cool? It reminds me of when the movie industry in the sixties and early seventies suddenly "discovered" the Mauser C/96 'Broomhandle' pistol. Mausers appeared in everything from spy stories to crime-dramas and westerns. They were everywhere and then ,just as quickly, faded away. Anyway that's my take.
