Chappie Poster Revealed at San Diego Comic-Con

Chappie Poster Close up

The first posters for Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie have popped up around Comic-Con, and the film continues to intrigue with a cryptic mix of humor, science fiction, gritty realism and children’s narrative. Neill Blomkamp has quickly established himself as the wunderkind for gritty, realistic science fiction. The director himself has compared Chappie as a mix of RoboCop and E.T., which makes for a very intriguing mixture.

Sharlito Copley will be the voice of the robot Chappie and is accompanied by a well-rounded assortment of international names, for instance Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Dev Patel. Though the film didn’t have any official presence at the SDCC, expect it to hit theaters on March 6th, 2015.

THE BIG HURT

Few weapons will inflict as much damage as a giant club – with teeth. When said club (pictured above) is brandished by Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules, its impact can be particularly vicious. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering fans of the son of Zeus the toothed club that Hercules uses on-screen in the epic film currently in theaters. Created by the Hercules props department, the club is inscribed with a lion carving on each side. Its handle is wrapped in leather cord, and the weapon is 43 inches long. For more information and additional photos of this gnarly implement of destruction, click here and get in on the bidding today!

 

LIVING LEGEND, RECORD HOLDER

cloris

Cloris Leachman is a living legend and television icon. In addition to her wickedly funny role as Maw Maw in Raising Hope, Leachman has won a record eight prime-time Emmy awards (and 20 total nominations) for roles ranging from her classic Phyllis (in Phyllis and The Mary Tyler Moore Show) to Grandma Ida in Malcolm in the Middle. She also has a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her work in the 1971 film The Last Picture Show. Now VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of this phenomenal talent a chance to claim a piece of her wardrobe from Raising Hope. The coat and hat she wore (pictured above) in the first-season episode “Toy Story” is now available to the fan who casts the winning bid. Click here to see additional photos, information and to place your bid today.

 

LION HEART

HERCULES

Half god, half mortal, the legendary Hercules (played by Dwayne Johnson) returns to the big screen re-imagined as an ancient mercenary who trades on his legend as a sword-for-hire. When duty calls on him to live up to his truly heroic roots, however, the son of Zeus shows his power. Fans of the mythic character now have an opportunity to claim a piece of Zeus’ son by placing the winning bid on the lion head (see photo above, is it the fabled Neamean Lion?) that Hercules wore as a headdress on-screen during the film. Do not miss your chance to own this unique piece of wardrobe worn by one of the planet’s greatest heroes and top action stars! Click here for additional photos and more information – and place your bid at VIP Fan Auctions today! No actual lions or humans were harmed in the construction of Hercules’ headdress.

 

CLAIM THE SWORD OF HERCULES

Do you smell what The Rock is wielding? (For you high-brow action movie fans, that’s a wrestling reference.) The wooden long-sword used on-screen by Dwayne Johnson in the epic film Hercules is available to the winning bidder at VIP Fan Auctions. Constructed from bamboo and designed by the film’s prop-masters to look like a metal blade, the sword is 55-inches long and used by the son of Zeus to battle the evil warlord. Click here for more information and photos of this amazing piece of film history – and mythology – and to place your bid today!

Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules Movie is finally here. MGM and VIP Fan Auctions are offering fans a chance to own a part of the movie at the Hercules Online Auction at www.herculesauction.com.

All of the items were created for the production of the movie and you can get a glimpse of many of the items in the movie trailer. Auction items include Hercules’ (Dwayne Johnson) club, shield, lions head, swords, Lord Coty’s (John Hurt) Chariot, Atalanta’s (Ingrid Bolso Berdal) Metal Dagger and Zeus’ Sceptre.

The weekly auctions are scheduled to run over a twelve week period and will have new items every week. Here is a preview of the amazing costumes and prop pieces created by the Hercules movie team.

All auction items come directly from productions and include a studio Certificate of Authenticity. Be sure to check out the auctions and enjoy the movie!

 

PURPLE REIGNS

GOO

The purple stuff, a.k.a. neutralizer, is often the only substance keeping overly active artifacts from reaping total chaos. To keep tabs on the purple ooze in Warehouse 13, the facility is equipped with Neutralizer Level Monitors – one of which is available to the fan who casts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. The unique prop has been distressed by the Warehouse 13 props department to reflect some of the messy action its seen, but any toxins have likely been, well… neutralized. Whether you’re a Warehouse 13 fan who wants to pay subtle homage to the Syfy series by bringing a piece of the Warehouse home – or, if you have possession of neutralized artifacts and buckets of purple stuff in your home gooery – get in on the bidding today. Click here to see photos of the monitor and for more information about it. But don’t wait too long – this auction is ending soon!

Tommy Chong is a Canadian-born American treasure.
