Famke Janssen's Muriel witch costume from Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters on display...

In 2013's fresh take on the Hansel & Gretel fable, where the grownup brother and sister duo escaped their encounter in the gingerbread house and become notorious witch hunters, Famke Janssen plays the evil grand witch 'Muriel'.

She looks resplendent in black feathers and leather in the movie (even when she's in full hideous witch makeup) and her beautiful dark gown was photographed alongside the other witches outfits from the fantasy movie at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema on January 29, 2013.

If you like her look, be sure to also check out Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton's costumes from Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (plus an additional witch outfit), which were designed by Marlene Stewart and were photographed on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema.

I think you'll agree that her outfit looks suitably dramatic and regal for the leader of the witches coven in the film.

Be sure to stay tuned in the days to come for a closer look at the two other witch costumes from Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters on display.

Plus for another take on witch costumes, have a look at these original witch costumes from Hocus Pocus.

The first witch we see the adult Hansel and Gretel fighting, described as 'Tall Witch', is played by Zoe Bell and this is the fantastical costume she sports in the movie.

I love the ram's horn collar detail on this woodland witch costume which helps emphasize witchcraft's connection with nature and it's nice that this mannequin isn't sporting a wig with long black hair (like in the movie), so you can see the intricate detail of the outfit.

Be sure to also check out this short video of the original costumes on display.
Stay tuned in the days to come for even more costumes worn by the witches in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Original spacesuit and helmet from 2001: A Space Odyssey on display...

Stanley Kubrick's 1968 epic sci-fi movie 2001: A Space Odyssey was inspired by Arthur C. Clarke's short story The Sentinel and chronicled a series of encounters between humanity and mysterious black monoliths and their apparent involvement in human evolution. Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood star as astronauts who undertake a fantastic voyage with the sentient computer HAL 9000 after discovering such a monolith on the Moon emitting a signal into space.

Also on display with the spacesuit was this red helmet from a different spacesuit worn by Keir Dullea as 'Dr. David Bowman' in the movie.

For the exhibit they cleverly projected the actor's likeness onto the visor of the helmet to recreate the feel of the movie.
