Chris Hemsworth’s Thor hammer to go on sale


The hammer used by Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the 2011 superhero movie is to go on sale at an auction in London.

The tool is one of 600 movie props and costumes which will go up for sale next month (Sep17).
Bosses at movie memorabilia dealer Prop Store are conducting the auction, which takes place at the British Film Institute (BFI) IMAX cinema in London on 26 September.

Chris‘ hammer is expected to sell for between $25,900 and $38,900, a similar amount to the sum a costume worn by Jack Nicholson in 1989’s Batman is expected to fetch.

“We all love a good superhero, and we’re thrilled to be featuring such ‘super’ props and costumes in our upcoming auction,” Prop Store chief executive officer Stephen Lane said in a press release.

Other lots include Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord helmet from 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is expected to sell for between $38,900 and $64,900, Ian McKellen’s Magneto headgear from the 2000 film X-Men, and a Superman costume worn by Christopher Reeve in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

Costumes from the 1960s Batman series are also up for sale.

The public will be able to view the movie memorabilia as part of an exhibition at the BFI IMAX from 7 to 26 September.
