Jack Nicholson’s axe from “The Shining,” Russell Crowe’s armour from “Gladiator” and a lightsaber used by Samuel L. Jackson in “Star Wars” are among 900 items going under the hammer next month in a massive auction of movie props.
The impressive collection is expected to fetch a total of £6 million ($7.3 million) when it goes up for sale at London’s BFI IMAX, and the catalogue is sure to excite any film buff.
A Tantive IV Stormtrooper helmet from “Star Wars: A New Hope” is among the headline items, with an estimated sale price of between £120,000 and £180,000 ($145,000 and $218,000).
Jackson’s lightsaber from 2005 instalment “Revenge of the Sith” is tipped to haul in up to £100,000.
Meanwhile, James Bond’s pistol and silencer, used by Pierce Brosnan in “GoldenEye,” is expected to fetch around £60,000.
If you want a fully-immersive item from the set, Michael Keaton’s complete Batsuit from 1989’s “Batman” could be the choice for you — it’s expected to rake in up to £120,000.
So if you’re a movie head, it’s time to say goodbye to these beloved movie props that did so much!!
