The original poster artwork for James Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever has sold at a London auction for more than $125,000.

The hand-painted piece made more than three times the original estimate of $38,000 after a collector bid $126,800 at the Christie's sale on Wednesday.
The rare poster features a miss-spelling of actress Lana Wood's name and depicts 007 star Sean Connery holding a gun with two Bond girls at his side.
A poster for the 1942 Humphrey Bogart classic Casablanca also went under the hammer, fetching a staggering $48,000.
