EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Costume dresses worn by Julia Roberts as the evil queen in the movie Mirror Mirror Evil Queen, a screen outfit worn by the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman in his Oscar-winning-performance as Capote, and the Hawaiian print shirt and shorts worn by Justin Timberlake in the film Alpha Dog will all be part of Premiere Props’ upcoming auction, Dec. 17.
More than 500 lots, featuring a collection of props and costumes from some of the most classic and blockbuster movies and TV shows ever filmed, will be held live, in Premiere Props’ gallery, located at 128 Sierra Street in El Segundo (zip: 90255), as well as online, via iCollector.com, LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. The auction will get underway at 11 am Pacific time.
The event is being called a Hollywood VIP Auction. Worldwide online bidding is available via the Premiere Props website (at www.PremiereProps.com) as well as on the three online bidding platforms. A live broadcast show will be hosted and aired across 250 affiliate internet sites, to include HollywoodLiveAuctions.com. Fans can learn about their favorite props and costumes.
Both of the evil queen dresses worn by Julia Roberts in Mirror Mirror Evil Queen were designed by the late Oscar-winning costume designer Eiko Ishioka and made by Eric Winterling. The signature dress – gold with a white lace design, long sleeves, rhinestone detailing and shoes – is expected to bring $10,000-$15,000. The other dress is salmon with gold leaf in a plastic crystal design, long sleeved, with a matching long skirt and even a wardrobe tag (est. $5,000-$10,000).
The SS Sage Hawaiian print button-front shirt that the singer-actor Justin Timberlake wore as “Frankie” in Alpha Dog carries an estimate of $800-$1,200. The shirt depicts surfers and palm trees. The lot also includes the turquoise and olive Mossimo board shorts the actor wore with the shirt. Timberlake was in the film Trolls and will appear in a still-untitled Woody Allen movie.
The screen-worn, charcoal grey Brooks Brothers cable-knit cardigan wool sweater, along with a burgundy polka-dot silk scarf worn by the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman in the 2005 movie Capote, in which Hoffman portrayed with uncanny accuracy writer Truman Capote, is expected to fetch $500-$700. The cardigan has five buttons in the front, two hip pockets and a large collar.
The purple and green long lace-up dress worn by actor Milla Jovovich as “Milady” in The Three Musketeers is estimated to bring $8,000-$10,000. The dress has a gold leaf design on the sleeves and faux jewels around the bodice. Jovovich will appear in the final Resident Evil movie when it opens Jan. 27. Also, the grey, ribbed Forever 21 tank-top shirt (size small), neck scarf and blue denim Levi jeans worn by Halle Berry as “Jordan” in the movie The Call should hit $500-$700.
Items from the movie Immortals and the actor Henry Cavill (“Theseus”) will include a bloody-appearing costume with silver plastic chest plate with leather ties, samurai shoulders, a leather belt, burgundy tunic and skirt, with wardrobe tag (est. $1,500-$2,000); and a screen-used sword, silver with gold metal handle and brown leather sheath, 25 ½ inches long (est. $2,000-$4,000).
An exceedingly rare original test exposure proof photograph from the 1955 hit movie The Ten Commandments, showing the actors Yul Brenner and Anne Baxter (who played Rameses and Nefertari, respectively, in their Egyptian costumes) has an estimate of $2,000-$4,000. The 7 ½ inch by 9 ½ inch photo is dated June 8, 1955 and was once owned by director Cecil B. DeMille.
Props from the Underworld movies will feature a screen-used brown wood Lycan crossbow with three bows and three arrows, approximately 26 ½ inches long, from Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (est. $2,000-$4,000); and a screen used Death Dealer crossbow, all wood and foam construction, from Underworld: Evolution Death Dealer, 47 inches in length (est. $600-$800).
Two costumes are each expected to realize around $1,000-$1,500 each. One is the outfit worn by Kate Beckinsale as “Amy” in the movie Vacancy (tank-top shirt, cardigan sweater, coat, denim jeans, with wardrobe tag). The other is the very distressed (with holes) hooded sweatshirt, crew-neck T-shirt and denim Levi jeans worn on screen by Nicholas Hoult in the movie Warm Bodies.
Just consigned for the auction is a script from an episode of the iconic TV show M*A*S*H, signed by many members of the cast, including the show’s stars, Alan Alda and Mike Farrell.
