21 hours ago
“In every generation, there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the Vampires, the Demons, and the Forces of Darkness. She is the Slayer.”

18 September 2017 4:31 AM, PDT
I visited the Prop Store exhibition at London’s BFI IMAX to ogle over the many props and costumes on display. The exhibition is currently running until the 26th September 2017 when everything will be sold at auction. So if you have a substantial amount of cash burning a hole in your pocket, hold out until then before you spend it.
Some of the items you’ll see include; Star-Lord’s helmet from Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Thor’s Mjolnir hammer from Thor (2011), Maverick’s flight suit from Top Gun (1986), The Joker’s costume from Batman (1989) and Marty McFly’s Nike Air Mags from Back to the Future: Part II (1989). It’s an exhibition to make any film fanatic drool.
Check out my video above of the exhibition. »
