Sylvester Stallone’s cryogenically-preserved body has been found in an Australian antique shop. Sort of.
The 1993 blockbuster Demolition Man featured Stallone as a 20th Century super cop preserved in ice until 2032, when he’s unfrozen to help capture Wesley Snipes’s master criminal Simon Phoenix.
The two freshly-thawed adversaries duke it out in the politically-correct utopia of San Angeles, causing the epic amounts of property damage that earned Stallone’s character – LAPD Sergeant John Spartan – the nickname “Demolition Man”.

Rather than freeze the real Hollywood superstar, director Marco Brambila commissioned a life-sized replica of Stallone which is used in the movie’s critical cryo-freeze sequences.
And now, almost 30 years after the film was made, the freeze-dried Stallone has resurfaced in an unlikely spot.

Instagrammer Bea Bellingham discovered the replica movie star for sale last week in a small town called Katoomba on the outskirts of Sydney.
An antiques store called Katoomba Vintage Emporium has somehow acquired the one-of-a-kind prop and is selling it for six thousand Australian Dollars (around £3,500).
Movie fanatic Adam Howes, who posted Bea’s photos of the naked dummy to Twitter, told the Daily Star that he’s fairly sure the prop is the same one that was featured in the Sydney branch of Planet Hollywood

“The thing is, it wasn't movie-used,” Adam added. “The story goes that Stallone was so impressed with the version that was made for the film, he wanted them in the restaurants.
While there was also a rubber Wesley Snipes created for the film, its location is currently unknown.
“Never sighted a Snipes one,” says Adam. I doubt Sly would have wanted his naked nemesis showing him up above the diners’ heads!”

Demolition Man was a huge success for Stallone, and the crazy-colour hairstyle that Snipes wears as Phoenix inspired Dennis Rodman’s look for years afterwards.
While there have been numerous rumours of a potential sequel over the years it seems unlikely now that we will see a return to San Angeles.
Your best bet to recreate the epic mayhem of Demolition Man is to buy yourself a replica John Spartan, which last time we checked it still for sale in Katoomba.
