Are you plagued by specters, spooks or phantoms? Do you have a strange and penetrating belief in the paranormal? Do you own an old firehouse with a perfectly good garage, and nothing to put in it? Well, whip out a check or money order and remove the spending limits on your Paypal account, because one of the three original Ecto-1 Ghostbusters cars is up for auction on eBay Motors. Of course, this one never appeared on the big screen, and was instead made specifically for people to take their picture with at the Universal Studios theme park, but from a distance, who can tell? The bidding is already over $45,000 with three days left, and you'll have to pick it up yourself in Tennessee or pay somebody to deliver it, but isn't 60-70 grand a small price to pay for a piece of history? ...Well, you know, film history? ...Okay, theme park history?
Attention all Spider-Man fans: Start raiding your 401K and get thee to eBay. Sony Pictures, along with charity Stand Up to Cancer is auctioning off a trip to the Spider-Man 4 set on the auction website, even though the film has not yet had any talent attached, nor, I believe, is it yet written (though IMDb has James Vanderbilt credited with the screenplay). Regardless, Sony plans to release something in 2011, and if you're willing to drop enough scratch, you could be there to watch the movie magic happen.
Have you always wanted to walk the red carpet at a glitzy movie premiere? Have you dreamed of meeting movie stars?

Thanks to Stand Up To Cancer, if you're the winning bidder on its eBay auction, you not only get to walk the red carpet at the Iron Man sequel's premiere, you get to be in the movie! ...Oh, and benefit cancer research, too.
You hear about them all the time -- awesome Hollywood props going for big bucks and then getting locked away somewhere where no one will ever see them again. Isn't it time we took back these historical treasures? And by "take back," I mean shouldn't we buy them ourselves, and lock them away somewhere where only we and a handful of our friends will ever see them again? Well, now's our chance -- online site liveauctioneers.com is hosting a big Hollywood auction, with tons of film-used superhero costumes (Superman, X-Men, Daredevil, Batman, Captain America and both the movie and TV Spider-Men), as well as a ton of items from Terminator, Jurassic Park, Blade Runner, Highlander and Conan, and it ends August 1st, which means we have to move quick.
