Breaking Dawn star Dakota Fanning, Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka, Malin Akerman and Evan Rachel Wood are featured in “The Spielberg Connection,” a recreation of some of Spielberg’s most famous scenes and characters.
In her recreation of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Fanning is Jillian Guiler (originally played by Melinda Dillon in 1977). And yes, the spaceship and Guiler’s son Barry are also in the frame.
Shipka, the young star who has been stealing the show on Mad Men since the series’ beginning, bears an uncanny resemblance to a young Drew Barrymore, who of course starred in E.T. the Extra Terrestrial as the adorable Gertie, opposite the adorable alien.
Photographed by Simon Procter, the feature also includes Akerman and Wood in equally iconic scenes from Jaws and Jurassic Park, respectively.
Spielberg’s latest film Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as the nation’s 16th president, has grossed some $7 million at the U.S. box office after a limited release. The film opens in wide release this weekend.
In honor of the release of Lincoln, check out some of Spielberg’s most iconic scenes, recreated by Harper’s Bazaar and four of Tinseltown’s most talented.
