Sneak Peak: Rare Underworld Props and Costumes up for Auction
On February 7, Premiere Props will host a live auction featuring costumes and props for the Underworld film franchise. The event, co-sponsored by Fangoria, Rue Morgue Magazine and several other horror-related outfits, will include items from all three films, the most recent of which, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, was released on January 23.
Selene's catsuit and corset
"Very few movies have this much detail," says Dan Levine, vice-president of marketing for Premiere Props, who regularly hosts auctions for film and television items.
Included in the auction is protagonist Selene's (Kate Beckinsale) latex catsuit and corset combo, complete with a bullet hole, and Andreas Tanis' (Steven Mackintosh) three-piece ensemble featuring fox trim on the coat and pants and hand-embroidered detailing. Also appearing is the distressed, bullet-riddled leather coat and 1907 medical book used by Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman). The Underworld arsenal also features serum injector and corresponding vial of blue liquid used by Corvin and Selene's throwing star.
The auction will also feature a Q&A session with Patrick Tatopoulos, director of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and creature designer for the first two films. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
Premiere Props is located at 128 Sierra Street, El Segundo, CA 90245. The preview begins at 9 a.m. and the auction at 11 a.m. Fans can bin online at icollector.com.
