Mad Props

In the past, we’ve shown you options on how you can decorate your home theater with movie-prop replicas from some of your favorite blockbusters. But how about we take that a step further with props that were actually used on set? Hold the knife that Arnold Schwarzenegger wielded in Terminator 2, sport a helmet used in a battle scene in Gladiator, or try on one of Jet Li’s costumes from The One. Then show them off to your friends when they come by for a weekend double feature.

Screen Captured is a Georgia-based company that specializes in the sale of high-end movie props—primarily from action flicks—that have been used by the actors on screen. Items are available from titles such as 300, Batman Begins, Hancock, Kill Bill, and more. “We acquire the props through working in the film and television industry,” says owner Eric Anthony. “We’re a direct link to both studios and sometimes even actors themselves.”

Prices range from $15 for a costume swatch all the way up to $150,000 for highly in-demand items. All props purchased from Screen Captured come certified. Check out for the full inventory.
