Julien’s Auctions, in partnership with Turner Classic Movies, is auctioning more than 1,400 items from sets of Hollywood movies, including “Saturday Night Fever,” “Back to the Future II” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” The “Hollywood: Classic & Contemporary” auction will also include a famous pair of shoes.
The sneakers worn by Tom Hanks while he was stuck on an island as Chuck Noland in “Cast Away” are part of this collection. The running sneakers are in the same condition as they were seen in the Oscar-nominated film and have an estimated value of $5,000-$7,000.

“Cast Away” originally premiered in theaters in 2000 and racked up 29 nominations in the two years following its release. The adventure movie follows FedEx executive Chuck Noland as he washes ashore on a deserted island after his plane crashes over the Pacific Ocean during a storm.
Julien’s Auctions is known for their high profile auctions. They have bid on and sold items owned by stars like Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, Cher and Michael Jackson. The “Hollywood: Classic & Contemporary” auction will also include Christian Bale’s Batman Cowl from “Batman Begins” and John Travolta’s infamous Tony Manero all-white suit from “Saturday Night Fever.”
The two-day auction will take place live on April 22 and April 23, shortly after the 14th annual TCM Classic Film Festival, which will be held in Hollywood from April 13 to 16. Viewers can attend the auction live in Beverly Hills or cast their bids online at Julienslive.com.
