Movies are the lifeblood of the entertainment industry. Movie fans get obsessed over their favorite films and film series. What better combination than to offer fans a bit of film memorabilia they can take with them wherever they go. Here are five movie replicas that true movie fans adore.
The Ring – From the Lord of the Rings, the one ring binds them all… All the fans of this series, that is. A simple
ring on a chain can bring back fond memories of this epic series, but to have the One Ring, well, that’s every Hobbit-lover’s dream.
The Scarf – From Harry Potter, a Hogwarts’ house scarf is something that all die-hard fans must have. What should be a simple piece of cloth has taken on mythic qualities. From kids to adults, Potter fans come in a wide span of ages but all of them love the famous kid wizard and his Gryffindor scarf.
The Lightsaber – From Star Wars, the lightsaber is the weapon of choice for the Jedi, good or evil. From the smallest tot to the biggest sci-fi nerd, there are lightsabers of all shapes, sizes and qualities. The Force is most definitely with this franchise.
The Bracelet – From Twilight, the charm bracelet that Bella wears with both the carved wooden wolf from Jacob and the diamond heart from Edward is a huge replica hit. Teenage girls and their moms love this series and anything that goes with it.
The Pin – From Hunger Games, the mockingjay brooch that Katniss wears is both a tribute and a symbol of rebellion. This pin was a slap in the face to the Capitol, since mockingjays were created after their disastrous experiment with jabberjays. Fans of this new hit series wear it proudly.

Synopsis There are over 300 bank robberies in Boston every year. And a one-square-mile neighborhood in Boston, called Charlestown, has produced more bank and armored car robbers than anywhere in the U.S.
One of them is Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck), but he is not cut from the same cloth as his fellow thieves. Unlike them, Doug had a chance at success, a chance to escape following in his father’s criminal footsteps. Instead he became the leader of a crew of ruthless bank robbers, who pride themselves on taking what they want and getting out clean. The only family Doug has are his partners in crime, especially Jem (Jeremy Renner), who, despite his dangerous, hair-trigger temper, is the closest thing Doug ever had to a brother.
However, everything changed on the gang’s last job when Jem briefly took a hostage: bank manager Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). When they discover she lives in Charlestown, Jem gets nervous and wants to check out what she might have seen. Knowing what Jem is capable of, Doug takes charge. He seeks out Claire, who has no idea that their encounter is not by chance or that this charming stranger is one of the men who terrorized her only days before.
As his relationship with Claire deepens into a passionate romance, Doug wants out of this life and the town. But with the Feds, led by Agent Frawley (Jon Hamm), closing in and Jem questioning his loyalty, Doug realizes that getting out will not be easy and, worse, may put Claire in the line of fire. Any choices he once had have boiled down to one: betray his friends or lose the woman he loves.
