This costume and instrument prop exhibit for the movie was photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema on December 21, 2012. Unfortunately the display didn't have it's own light source which made photography difficult in the evening.

One of many identical cars used in the filming of the movie, apparently this turquoise Thunderbird was used primarily for close-up shots and was obviously not the car that went over the Arizona desert cliff at the end of the movie.

This picture car was photographed on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum on December 16, 2012.
