Props by the Scottish company Star alongside Redmayne in the film Fantastic Beasts

A Scottish company celebrates success on screen as its antique and vintage padlocks star in a major film alongside Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law and Mads Mikkelsen.

e 33 of the props were purchased by Scaramanga for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which is released on Friday, making it the third major Hollywood or British film in as many months to use the Cupar company.

Carl Morenikeji, company founder and CEO, said seeing the products in the film was “far beyond anything I could have imagined” when one of the company’s products appeared as a prop a decade ago.

The JK Rowling film is the 17th film to feature one of his products.

Sir Ridley Scott’s Agatha Christie remake of Death on the Nile, which premiered on February 11 and starred Sir Kenneth Branagh and Gal Gadot, also featured padlocks from the company.

Starring Robert Pattinson as a caped crusader, The Batman hit the big screen on March 4 and featured six different vintage Scaramanga padlocks.

Mr. Morenikeji said: “Seeing our products used in film and television productions is always a special moment, but to have built our reputation for vintage and antique lifestyle products to the point where we have featured them in Hollywood films Having released three and six consecutive months in a year is far more than I could have imagined when our antique trunks and chests appeared in our first film Dark Shadows 10 years ago.”

Scotland has a growing film and television industry which brought in £42million to Glasgow alone last year.

The company hopes 2023 will be another record-breaking year, with five films it has delivered for box office release next year, with the possibility of two TV shows to follow.
