Pictured above is the John Wick (Keanu Reeves) “Distressed” – “Running Through Time Square Costume”. This screen worn costume can be seen in the opening of Chapter 3 where we see John running in the rain. A bit of effects blood is featured on the costume that adds to its overall aesthetic. The blood comes from John fighting off an assassin in the New York Public Library. The two piece suit is comes with a wardrobe tag marking it “Hero Size,” indicating it was made for use by the film’s lead actor.
There will be a quite a few lots featuring Continental Currency Coins (pictured below) in the auction. In the John Wick movie series Continental Currency Coins are a signal token to the underworld all around us that the barer is in the know, and a part of the same life. A coin can book you a stay at The Continental, buy your “evening wear” and equipment, gain you access to the hidden parts of the world.
Each coin in the auction is stamped with a lion emblem on one side and figure with a shield on the other, and feature the latin phrases “ENS CAUSA SUI” (You are your own causes) and “EX UNITAE VIRES” (“Out of unity comes strength) and “MMI”, inferring the coins were “minted” in 2001.
