Chess is also played in an episode of the TV series The Wire.

Also came across a Malayalam comedy called Chess, but from the few clips seen so far cant tell if they actually play it in the movie any.

Nope. Not this game itself. But there is a 1979 movie called Scavenger Hunt.

It is about a wealthy game designer who passes away while playing an automated board game. The Game inventors name is Milton Parker. (Played by Vincent Price).

In the opening sequence at his mansion the camera pans across many diffrent game boxes. My copy though was not good enough to tell if these were all dummy props, or if they were real games from that era.

Also more chess. The failed anime pilot Techno-Police 21c has Eleanor losing at chess to her fembot partner Scanny.

And while not a movie, chess features prominently on the cover and story of a recent Fantastic Four comics amongst others.

Yep. Chess again and 4x4 Checkers
This time in the 1990 British animated series The Dreamstone. In episode 5 Rufus and Amberly are playing Chess, and in a later episode 15 they are playing a board game on a 4x4 checkerboard I havent been able to identify yet. From the way they were hopping pieces I am guessing it is a 4x4 version of checkers.

"Crew morale hits an all-time low when Voyager must spend two years crossing an expanse devoid of any star systems or signs of life."
After two months of such journey crew is looking for various forms of entertainment(mainly holodeck).
9:17-9:50.
B'Elanna Torres and Tom Paris are playing game referenced as Derada. Paris opened with Novokovich Gambit. Torres is tired with repeatable gameplay after hundreds of plays and quits.
The set looks like wooden Gigamic edition and game rules seems intact

Now this one is a little fuzzy but I have a pretty certain memory of the 1984 movie Cloak and Dagger beginning with two kids playing a tabletop game with polyhedral dice which could have certainly been the 1984 game Cloak and Dagger.

The IMDB trivia page confirms at least one scene took place in a boardgame store.
