BLASTERMIND Art Attack

NOW WITH ANSWERS A sci-fi art challenge for you

Instead, we’re celebrating that under-appreciated film and cinematic art (literally) – concept art. Below are 16 pieces of preproduction artwork, and all you have to do is work out which films or TV shows they come from. But we’ll give you a tip – one is from a very famous abandoned version of a film that was later made by somebody else.

Usual request: Please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but the folks on this thread are quite happy for you to post and discuss answers if you follow the golden rule of only posting answers in invisible text (if you don’t know how ask somebody there – they’re very friendly).
