Clive Owen's costume and film props from Children of Men...

Before the Oscar-winning outer space thrills of Gravity, Alfonso Cuarón made his name with such sci-fi delights as 2006's dystopian futuristic tale, Children of Men.

The film, set in a chaotic 2027 Britain, starred Clive Owen as a former activist who agrees to transport a very important pregnant woman to a sanctuary at sea, in a world where women are thought infertile.

Jany Temime was Costume Designer on this futuristic movie and you can also see her costumes in the Harry Potter movies from the third installment onwards, plus more recently in 007's SkyFall and Gravity.

The London Olympics 2012 logo featured on Clive Owen's sweater is far nicer than the actual ugly design they chose for the real games.

In addition to one of Clive Owen's outfits from the film, the exhibit at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 15, 2014, also included a selection of screen-used props from the movie from a world where fuel was rationed, amongst other things, in a militarized police state.

The display also includes the ping pong ball that Clive Owen and Julianne Moore (as his estranged American wife 'Julian') pass from mouth to mouth in a game to entertain themselves in their car.

If you like these props, be sure to also take a look at this really cool animatronic baby featured in Children of Men.
