To have the chance to see some of your favourite memorabilia and props from some of your most beloved films, really is something quite special and unique. It’s a very rare opportunity so when you have the chance to see these random items and be up close and personal close to any of these objects, take it! I was lucky enough to have an exhibition in London so I went down to the BFI IMAX in Waterloo, London as Prop Store were holding a special event before their live auction, which took place on September 27.
What I saw made me have a huge geekgasm, it was very exciting and the perfect place for me! There were signed scripts and books, props from Die Hard, The Dark Knight, Terminator 2, Star Trek, The Martian, 24, Gladiator and too many more to name. The auction has gone live and people are currently bidding thousands on items such as the Bat Pod, costumes from Star Trek, original storyboards from Star Wars, FBI badges from The X Files, clapperboards from countless films and a signed copy of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.
So if you’ve got a bottomless pit of cash, chances are you’ll be bidding on these items already! I know what I’d get first, the Batpod! Take a look and see what I saw the other day. What would you bid on?
Lucky me! 😉
2 x Batman costumes and Bane
This is what Episode VI: A New Hope was going to be called, apparently
Star Trek costume
This is something nearly made me smash the glass it’s behind so I could steal it
For those of you who were fans of The X-Files when it was first on our TV screens, I’m sure you are very excited to hear all about the upcoming resurrection of said show for a mini-series. Let’s be honest, the first film was pretty good but the sequel was incredibly poor. If you didn’t think so, stop lying to yourself! Believe that it was shit! So by now you want something good, something you can rely on as much as the original show.
We’ve had little bits of information come out, images and a few very short trailers. Well it seems as if they are going to carry on their (sort of) relentless campaign of telling us pretty much nothing by throwing a few new posters at us. I have to say these are nice, I like these!
I’m looking forward to this starting up again, although I will have to brush up on my X-Files knowledge (it’s been a while since I was in the company of Mulder and Scully). I’ve thrown in the three video promos for good measure in case you haven’t seen the 138 seconds we have so far. Not long to go now.
