Next week, New York gets a taste of Los Angeles as Gallery 1988 brings their signature event, Crazy 4 Cult, back to the Big Apple. The show opens December 13 and while we’ll have much more on the event in the upcoming days, two pieces in particular deserve to be called out.
They’re paintings by Jason Edmiston, who recently had a solo gallery show at Mondo in Austin, TX. Edmiston captured the climax of Steven Spielberg‘s Raiders of the Lost Ark with two paintings showing Colonel Dietrich and Major Arnold Toht in the horrific final moments. These works aren’t for the faint of heart, but they will find a place in the heart of any Indiana Jones fan. Check them out below. Read More »
Spinning movies in artistic, fun ways is what Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo are all about. In 2012, the Pennsylvania artists took art fans on a tour of their favorite ’80s film locations. In 2013, they’re presenting some of their favorite modern films in vintage styles.
The exhibit called Modern Vintage opens at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles on December 6. It’s the second show by the artists, who are best known for the stellar work they’ve done in the past for Mondo, Acme, Disney, Fox and so many more. This latest show is a little less specific than their 2012 Gallery 1988 show in that the pieces aren’t beholden to any 100% specific theme. Movies like Batman, Robocop, Army of Darkness and Blade Runner are simply reimagined in clever vintage styles. That might mean an advertisement, it might mean a public service announcement or maybe something else entirely. Either way, Whalen and Perillo’s signature, colorful art will delight fans who are in on the joke.
Check out an exclusive reveal of several images from the show below. Read More »
The first trailer for Peter Jackson‘s second Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, answered one of everyone’s biggest questions about the sequel. Would Jackson’s second film get us all the way into the Lonely Mountain and reveal Smaug, the malicious and greedy dragon at the end of the Dwarves quest? The title suggested it but the trailer confirmed it. Bilbo’s interactions with the dragon (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) responsible for forcing the dwarves out of their home are some of the most memorable and tense ones in the book. However, the first film didn’t give us much idea of what Smaug looked like and the trailer only showed us his head. Would audiences see Smaug for themselves before the film opened on December 13?
That answer has been revealed in the most unexpected of places. Smaug has been revealed on the side of some Air New Zealand planes, a company with a long history of collaboration with Jackson and the franchise. Check it out below. Read More »
There’s some potentially soul-crushing news for Disney theme park fans in the latest installment of the excellent insider column MiceAge. None of this is officially confirmed by Disney (then again, when is it?) but the latest column claims plans to turn Disneyland’s Tomorrowland in Anaheim into a more Star Wars centric world have been on hold. Similar plans in Orlando, FL have all but been cancelled.
Then there’s the rumored Monsters Inc. roller coaster that was discussed for Disney’s California Adventure. According to MiceAge, those plans have now been totally scrapped. Read some more details, and find out why, below. Read More »
