Set in an alternate version of the late 19th Century, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is a unique story featuring an odd assortment of legendary fictional Victorian characters who join up to foil “The Fantom” who is trying to start a World War. The League consists of Allan Quatermaine (Sean Connery), Captain Nemo (Maseeruddin Shah), Mina Harker (Peta Wilson), Dorian Gray (Stuart Townsend), Tom Sawyer (Shane West), Dr Jekyll (Jason Flemyng) and Rodney Skinner AKA The Invisible Man (Tony Curran). This amazing adventure came from the creative mind of Alan Moore who is responsible for some of the renowned graphic novels of recent years including V For Vendetta, Watchmen and From Hell.
Although the movie is star studded and was made on a very high budget, it seems to be Captain Nemo’s immense car which captured the imagination of the cinema going public. The striking vehicle was used for a number of scenes and even featured on the poster.
