Items going under the hammer will include Leonard Nimoy’s Spock costume from Star Trek, a Stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Christopher Reeve’s underwater tunic from Superman.

In total, more than 450 lots will be sold at the BFI Imax in London’s Waterloo. The auction will also be live-streamed online and a free preview exhibition will be open to the public at the venue from 9 September.

The items are expected to fetch in excess of £1m. Alongside the high profile items, props such as a helmet worn by Monty Python and the Holy Grail’s Knights of the Round Table will be auctioned at a cheaper price of £200-300.

Andy Edge, commercial director at Odeon UK & Ireland, said: "It's very exciting to present these film mementos to the public, giving film fans the chance to pick up their own piece of Hollywood history. With this year's film slate full of huge blockbusters, including; Mission Impossible: Rogue NationEverest, The Walk, Spectre and Star Wars: The Force Awakens - who knows what props will be sought after in the years to come." 

Stephen Lane, chief executive at Prop Store added: "We're incredibly proud to announce our second live auction in London and are delighted to be working in partnership with the Europe's leading cinema chain, Odeon. The wonderful venue they are providing for the auction will make it a truly great event for film fans and collectors alike.

"This year sees some fantastic material come to market and we are really looking forward to giving people the chance to take home their own pieces of movie and television history."

Mischief PR is working with Odeon and Prop Store to deliver the live campaign.
