If you aren’t totally caught up with AMC’s Breaking Bad, I urge you not to check out the latest piece of art from the Breaking Bad Art Project. It’s of a major, major spoiler concerning that happens in the latest season’s finale. However, if you are caught up, I’m sure you have an idea exactly what awaits you below if I say it concerns Gus (Giancarlo Esposito). The above image is just a small, non-spoiler, sliver.
The Breaking Bad Art Project is a viral campaign that’s revealing one piece of art per week leading up to this summer’s final season premiere of Breaking Bad. This third poster is by relative newcomer Anthony Petrie, who just so happened to do my favorite piece in the recent Avengers Assemble art show as well. He’s one to watch, as is this show. Check out the poster below. Read More »

Ding. Ding. Ding. The ominous sound of Hector Salamanca’s bell is one of the most frightening and iconic things in AMC’s hit show Breaking Bad. The bell is also the subject of the second poster in the Breaking Bad Art Project. Created by Tom Whalen, the slightly abstract poster takes a second to sink in but, once it does, all you’ll hear is that terrifyingly simple sound.

Monday we exclusively revealed something extremely exciting for Breaking Bad fans. An online, viral marketing campaign (or ARG, alternate reality game) was launched over at BreakingGifs.com that will eventually reveal 16 pieces of high end, limited edition art by some of today’s most well-known artists leading up to the premiere of the final season of the show this summer.
The event began Wednesday night in New York City as Hood Internet took the stage, only to be joined by Gus (Giancarlo Esposito) who helped reveal a URL. At that URL lay the first piece of art in the series, a scene from the pilot episode by Daniel Danger. This 12 x 36 inch beauty called My Name Is Walter Hartwell White will be up for sale today, Thursday and only 300 will ever be made. Check it out below as well as a video from the event. Read More »
Fans of AMC’s incredible show Breaking Bad may not know that, a few months back, comedian Paul Scheer created a site called Breaking Gifs where he would post funny and weird GIF files related to the show. The idea seemed out there, fun but also incredibly suspicious. In 2009, Scheer did something similar for Lost when he started a site called Damon, Carlton and a Polar Bear. At first, the site was just a weird internet thing but it soon evolved into a full blown phenomenon with exclusive pieces of art by Olly Moss, Eric Tan, Tyler Stout, Daniel Danger, Kevin Tong and more. The event is widely thought to have kicked off the current pop culture art craze.
And it’s happening again.
BreakingGifs.com has now officially changed formats and we can exclusively reveal it’s the start of a viral campaign to promote the upcoming final season of Breaking Bad on AMC. Curated and run by Tyson Givens and Gallery 1988, each week the site will link to a new piece of Breaking Bad themed art by well-known and up and coming artists, all leading up to the show’s premiere this Summer.

Over the past year we’ve heard a bit here and there about the development of Goodfellas as a television series. The classic Martin Scorsese gangster film was scripted by Nicholas Pileggi based on his own non-fiction book Wiseguy, and Pileggi has been involved in developing the new show.
As we’ve reported on the potential for a Goodfellas show, we’ve seen quite a few different responses to the idea. Now we know that the show has landed with a development deal at AMC, home of Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. Read More »
If you’re anything like me, you read the headline “Frank Darabont Will Helm New TNT Show L.A. Noir” and immediately thought of the Rockstar Video game, L.A. Noire. Unfortunately, this show has nothing to do with the game but fans will find similarities.
Darabont has just signed to write and direct the pilot episode of a drama set in 1940s and 1950s Los Angeles about the conflicts between the LAPD and organized crime. After that he’ll slide into a producer role, much like he did for the first season of The Walking Dead, helping catapult that show into one of the biggest on cable TV.
Of course, Darabont no longer works on The Walking Dead after a very public departure from AMC’s zombie hit this summer, but he’s recently come out and explained about how he wanted to start the second season. Read about L.A. Noir and Darabont’s scrapped Walking Dead opening after the jump. Read More »
The initial news that Kevin Smith would be producing a reality show set in his New Jersey comic book shop almost seemed like a joke. Would people really be interested in the inner workings of a comic book shop? The channel behind Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead thinks so. AMC picked up the show, they’ve given it a new title, and plan on premiering it February 12 after The Walking Dead. It’s now officially called Comic Book Men, which gives a hint as to the grown-up-nerd slant the show will likely take. Check out two promos after the jump.
