Fuji used to make this really great daylight slide film called Velvia 50 that photographers loved to use partly due to its exceptional sharpness and high resolving power.
Velvia 50 had an exaggerated color saturation, however, that was very obvious. (I used it) Caucasian skin in particular would border on an almost reddish tan hue. I'm sure some photographers didn't necessarily care for this effect, but it was a part of the look of the film regardless.
However, I bet that the film that is used for the motion picture industry is specialized for resolution/fine grain and "accurate" color.
