The OG tells that there is no clear antecedent to the pronoun it in this question. But I think that it clearly refers to motion picture.

"It" could refer to "motion picture," but if you replace "it" with "motion picture" the resulting meaning conveyed is nonsensical. So, the point is that, while there is in the sentence a noun phrase, "motion picture," to which "it" could refer, there is no LOGICAL antecedent for "it."
