5 life-like props from the movies on display...

I always love seeing the screen-used costumes and props on display as it gives you a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes Hollywood magic that goes into creating movies, especially where sci-fi, comic book and fantasy films are involved. That being said, here are five life-like props that resemble their actor counterparts for you to enjoy.

Sylvester Stallone's cryogenically frozen Sergeant John Spartan prop 
from Demolition Man

First up is this life-size naked replica of Sylvester Stallone used in the 1993 sci-fi movie, Demolition Man.

In the film he plays LAPD Sergeant 'John Spartan' who is sentenced to the city's new California Cryo Penitentiary when a hostage situation goes bad. When another prisoner escapes from cryo-prison he's awakened in the future to help capture him.

This prop copy of the action hero was photographed on display at Planet Hollywood Cafe in Las Vegas in April 2011.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr. Freeze head
from Batman & Robin

Another of the Planet Hollywood Cafe founders also had a replica of his head on display at the same time, with this silvery 'Mr. Freeze' bust of Arnold Schwarzenegger from 1997's comic book crime-fighting caper, Batman & Robin.

Fans of the DC supervillain can also check out his Mr. Freeze movie costume on display too.
