Props/Costumes From Don’t Breathe, Blair Witch and Deadpool Will Headline Premiere Props Oct 15 Auction
Movie props and costumes from the current smash films Don’t Breathe, Blair Witch and Deadpool, dresses owned and worn by Princess Diana and Whitney Houston, and marquettes (pre-production study models) for Freddy vs. Jason and Gremlins 2 are just a few of the more than 700 lots up for bid in Premiere Props’ Hollywood Auction Extravaganza XLIII.
The auction will get underway promptly at 11 am Pacific Coast time on Saturday, October 15th in Premiere Props’ gallery, located at 128 Sierra Street in El Segundo (zip: 90255). Worldwide online bidding will be available through the Premiere Props website (www.PremiereProps.com) as well as the online bidding platforms LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and iCollector.com.
As in past auctions held around this time of year, Premiere Props is partnering with Fangoria Magazine, a publication for fans of horror movies.
Eager bidders will be vying for a complete costume worn on-screen by Stephen Lang, the actor who plays the blind man in the blockbuster film Don’t Breathe. The outfit includes an Outback Trading Company jacket, Cottonfeld pants and Wolverine boots. Also sold will be the silver and black rubber handgun and thin metal folding white cane walking stick Lang uses in the movie.
From another huge hit film of 2016, Deadpool, offered will be actor Ryan Reynolds’ screen-used sword, seen in the opening sequences of the movie and consisting of a sword with foam handled knife on one end; plus the bloody white long-sleeved sweater with hood worn by Reynolds; and a tank-top shirt worn by Reynolds. All were acquired directly from the production of the movie.
The exquisite full-length beaded dress custom-made for Princess Diana by American icon Andre Van Piercomes complete with provenance, including a letter from Van Pier, whose first client was former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy. The Lady Di dress is adorned with colors of blue, pink and white, with custom beads throughout. It’s an historical artifact, in very good condition.
Whitney Houston’s owned and worn cream silk dress with elaborate bold beading is originally from the late singer’s bankruptcy auction. Another garment sure to attract attention is a screen-worn pink and silver detailed jacket from the 1968 movie Funny Girl, starring Barbra Streisand. The very elaborate jacket comes with a United Costumes tag and a studio tag that reads “Cooke.”
The paint test marquette created by the legendary make-up artist Dave Miller for the 2003 chiller Freddy vs. Jason was used during production to create the coloring of the make-up to apply to the face of Robert Englund (who played Freddy Kreuger). It measures 21 inches by 16 ½ inches.
Direct from the award-winning studio of make-up effects artist Rick Baker is the study marquette used for the feature film Gremlins 2. Baker, along with Chris Walas, designed and created the infamous Gremlins creatures and the study marquette being sold was used as a reference point.
