Here's another feast of delights from my favourite cinema, the ArcLight Hollywood, where you'll always find an interesting selection of exclusive movie memorabilia and original film props and costumes.
This time it's a treat for Star Trek fans, to publicise the forthcoming J.J.Abrams film opening here on the 8th May 2009, which were on display in the foyer the same day I photographed the Watchmen movie costumes.
Apparently these 34-inch replicas of the USS Enterprise were cast from the actual 3D digital models created for the movie by Industrial Light & Magic.
The three different Enterprise models have been re-interpreted by artists and a model effects shop.
ENTERPRISE MODEL #1 - The FX Company/Quantum Mechanix
ENTERPRISE MODEL #2 - Mr. Brainwash
ENTERPRISE MODEL #3 - Duncan Lemon
I'm quite excited to see what the new film looks like, as the trailers look action-packed, but still faithful to the established Star Trek universe.
Obviously it helps they've cast a looker like Chris Pine to play Kirk, too.
It looks like May is going to be a blockbuster movie month for sci-fi, with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek and Terminator: Salvation all to look forward to.
Hmm, I wonder what I'll be doing in May...
