Some of La La Land’s most recognizable movie props in film history are finally made public – but none of this is cheap … not far.
The famous Prop Store – which houses a treasure trove of Hollywood memorabilia on the set – is organizing a MONSTER auction at the end of August which will put iconic items on sale for the very first time.
And, get this … only 20 items are sold altogether, but they are expected to make over $ 6 million, depending on how the pros have assessed each piece individually beforehand.
Okay, let’s go to the spoils – Tom Cruisecurrent fighter pilot helmet from “Top Gun” (RIP, Goose), the 11 foot Nostromo spacecraft used in “Alien” and Robin Williams‘Peter Pan’s sword in “Hook”.
Tom’s helmet should be between $ 50,000 and $ 70,000, Nostromo will probably be in the range of $ 300,000 to $ 500,000 (DAMN !!!) and Peter Banning’s weapon could hang $ 12,000 to 16 $ 000.
But wait… there is more !!! Leo DiCaprioCadillac Coupe De Ville yellow and Brad PittThe Karmann Ghia sports car from “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is also up for grabs. These puppies are expected to make somewhere between $ 20,000 and $ 55,000 – Leo’s ride being at the top end, of course. It’s a caddy!
Some other neat items include Jennifer Lawrence“The Hunger Games” arena costume Sylvester Stallone“Rocky” boxing gloves and the camera Alfred Hitchcock used to film “Vertigo”.
