Heavy Metal teaser poster

This new poster for Heavy Metal, designed by Swedish artist Killian Eng and set for release at Comic Con, doesn’t seem to have much relation to the 1981 film of the same name. The poster is fantastic (and would pair well with Eng’s great poster for Jodorowsky’s Dune) but doesn’t feature any elements of the animated anthology film. In fact, it looks a lot more like it could be a cover for an issue of the magazine from which the film drew stories, artists, and inspiration.

In truth, the current owners of Heavy Metal are looking to make a bit of a scene at Comic Con this year. This poster by Eng and Mondo is billed as the teaser for a new Heavy Metal film. And while we don’t have any details on the movie, we’ve got the Heavy Metal teaser poster below. Read More »

Marvel Studios often drops concept art for its movies as posters at Comic Con, and this year is no different.

We’ll update with additional posters in the Avengers 2 concept art collection as they become available. Read More »

John Boyega in Attack the Block

As we’ve previously discussed, John Boyega‘s Twitter account, @jboyega, is awesome. The Attack the Block turned Star Wars Episode VII star has been tweeting daily about his excitement being part of a galaxy far, far away including cool pics and intriguing teases. Earlier this week though, the actor started some gossip when he put up a series of tweets appearing to angle for a Marvel movie. On their own, it looked like Boyega might have signed up to play Black Panther or Nova. But, in context, it was probably just a nerd geeking out. Read the John Boyega Marvel tweets below.
