Aronofsky's Arc and the 8 Most Massive Set-Pieces of All Time

Disney's Hyperion Airship

Disney's dirigible served as an important plot point in the 1974 film, The Island at the Top of the World, but it was the full-size model built for Paris' Disneyland Park that broke records. The 2,200-square-meter model currently protrudes from the Videopolis Theatre complex, and at the time of its installation earned the title of largest prop ever constructed for a theme park. Sadly, it is made of glass fabric and has never been hijacked by a crazy steampunk robber baron.
