LONDON: From Marty McFly’s hoverboard in ‘Back to the Future Part II’ to a Stormtrooper Helmet worn in ‘Return of the Jedi’, a huge selection of movie memorabilia worth $7.5 million will be auctioned in London in November. More than 1,000 lots, made up of costumes, props and other items are expected to fetch more than 5.5 million pounds ($7.52 million) at the Nov 9-11 auction by film and television memorabilia company Prop Store. They include a full-size T-800 Endoskeleton from ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’, estimated at 60,000 – 80,000 pounds, Sean Connery’s James Bond suit from ‘You Only Live Twice’, with a price tag of 50,000 – 70,000 pounds, and Brad Pitt’s 8,000 – 12,000 Achilles’ sword from ‘Troy’.

Leading the lots is a light-up ILM X-wing filming miniature from ‘Star Wars: Return of the Jedi’, with a price estimate of 200,000 – 300,000 pounds. A Stormtrooper helmet from the same movie has a 100,000 – 150,000 pounds price tag. “People buy this stuff to preserve it,” Tim Lawes, head of consignments at Prop Store, told Reuters. “Basically what we’re about is the preservation of movie history and (for) most of the people that buy from us, these things will go into display cabinets, be it in somebody’s house, in a boardroom or in a museum. So these things are very much cherished and looked after.” Movie fans can also buy a 60,000 – 80,000 pounds lenticular Mattel hoverboard signed by “Back to the Future” star Michael J. Fox as well as a screenmatched ‘Wilson’, the ball serving as Chuck Noland’s personified companion in the Tom Hanks film “Cast Away”. It has a price tag of 40,000 – 60,000 pounds. There are also costumes from “Elf”, “Spider-Man”, “Blade Runner” and “Shakespeare in Love”. “I think for most people (the appeal is) probably nostalgia. The higher value items tend to be films from the 70s and 80s and these are being purchased by people who now have a bit of money,” Lawes said. “They’re recapturing that little moment of their childhood – perhaps watching a film for the first time on VHS or DVD or watching it around Christmas on television with their family … That’s really the majority of the marketplace.”

Bond Returns To A Royal Welcome!

It was a star-studded London premiere that announced the arrival of the 25th film in the Bond franchise – ‘No Time To Die’. The almost-3hr-long film, that hits the theatres in the UK and India on October 1, got a royal welcome, literally and more, to compensate for its-much delayed screening that had to be staggered due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Oscar winners, celebrities and of course key members of the Windsor Palace, braved rain and inclement weather to turn up in solidarity for 007. After all, this is also Daniel Craig’s last act as James Bond as the 53-year-old has decided to sign off from the hugely-successful film franchise that have spawned an enterprise over five 5 decades.

Here are a few moments from London’s Royal Albert Hall that saw the most high-profile red carpet since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bond Goes Pink At Red Carpet

Daniel Craig was a figure of swag and style as he arrived for his swan song at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday. The 53-year-old, dressed in an eye-catching pink velvet dinner jacket, was of course the centre of attention. And rightfully so! Over a span of 15 years, Craig as 007 has entertained the movie world with 5 cinematic adaptations of Ian Flemings’s works. He remains a hugely successful supersleuth, and the only blonde Bond in the history of the franchise.

Bond-ing On Facebook!

For those who couldn’t make it to London’s Royal Albert Hall, there was some virtual comfort. The world is now on Facebook, and so was James Bond! Even as royalty turned up to show Craig some Brit solidarity in person, the world premiere of ‘No Time to Die’ was streamed exclusively on Facebook. The social media giant broadcast it through Oculus Venues, an experiential space for the Facebook-backed Oculus VR headset. It was hosted by presenter Clara Amfo with ample Facebook-type live commenting, captioning and Q&As.

Killing Eve … Eh, Bond!

Ah, well! By now everyone knows that there is a ‘Fleabag’ link to the latest Bond flick. In April 2019, ‘Fleabag’ creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge (right in pic) was brought in to add spunk to the script. Daniel Craig specifically requested for Waller-Bridge, and wanted her to add a ‘touch of her wit and quirkiness’ to the screenplay.

Three’s Company

Ana de Armas made heads turn as she arrived on the red carpet of the ‘No Time To Die’ premiere on Tuesday in London. The Cuban actress, who makes her Bond debut opposite Daniel Craig, turned out in a thigh-slit, Louis Vitton black gown, featuring a plunging neckline and silver straps. The 33-year-old had her hair styled in fringe. The British media also reported that De Armas had a bit of an awkard moment at the after-party at Annabel’s when she suffered an awkward wardrobe malfunction.
