I am trying to identify a SciFi feature film I saw perhaps five to ten years ago. The setting was on another planet, there was a dark theme, and there was a large building with a giant metal statue which was articulated - it moved. The statue had an imposing appearance, like a warrior or deity.

What keeps bringing this to mind are the large metal statues (shown below) at the Macau Studio City Hotel and Casino. I believe the statue in the film looked quite similar, but that's all I've got.

  • Seems very similar to the statue of Victor Von Doom from Fantastic Four – Valorum Jan 14 '18 at 13:12
  • @Valorum I don't remember the statue being of any character in particular; I think it just appeared in the once to create a general mood or visual impression. Searching on that name I don't see anything that looks familliar either. – uhoh Jan 14 '18 at 13:15
  • @Paulie_D wow that may be it! I did see it when it came out, and those helmets look very reminiscent. Was there a giant, imposing statue? – uhoh Jan 14 '18 at 13:19

The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) has statuary and other objects (spacecraft and weaponry) that feature such imagery.
