scoreless punch-drunk love

Although Paul Thomas Anderson mainly works with Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood nowadays, the director collaborated many times with Jon Brion in the first half of his career. Arguably their finest work together is the bittersweet music found in Anderson’s fourth film, Punch-Drunk Love — one of the finest love stories of the 21st century. A slightly new version of the film has been made, which, depending on your location, you can see in March of next year.

Star Wars Marathon Contest

We’re just 10 days from the first showings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and our patience is growing thin. But as Master Yoda says, “Control, control, you must learn control.” And some Star Wars fans are going to really have to be one with the Force if they’re going to survive a crazy new Star Wars marathon contest that the Alamo Drafthouse is putting on later this month.

You might think that a Star Wars marathon sounds easy, but this one is likely going to get exhausting after awhile. Get the details on the Star Wars marathon contest after the jump! Read More »

Wolverine by Tom Whalen (variant)

We’ve made no secret of our love for Mondo here at /Film, nor of our obsession with Marvel superheroes. So what happens when you put the two of them together? A must-see gallery show called Snikt. Bamf. Thwip: A Celebration of Marvel Comics, that’s what.

As announced last week, the exhibition brings together artists like Tom Whalen, Becky Cloonan, Matt Taylor, and Matthew Woodson, all united by their love of Marvel’s uncanny, mighty, amazing, incredible superheroes. Today, we’ve got a little preview of what’ll be on display. Check it out after the jump.  Read More »

Star Wars The Art Awakens

We’re heading into the home stretch of waiting for Star Wars: The Force Awakens with just over a month left until the film hits theaters on December 17th. And along with the onslaught of TV spots that will be arriving to help promote the film, there will be plenty of other Star Wars events and promotions, like Gallery 1988’s The Art Awakens show.

The exhibition opened last night with a slew of new artwork from over 60 artists, paying tribute to the original Star Wars trilogy (with some influence from the prequels) and The Force Awakens. J.J. Abrams (seen above in a photo from our own Peter Sciretta) and Lawrence Kasdan even attended the event last night.

And for those interested, there are a couple of pieces that may provide some insight into the forthcoming sequel. Read More »

Back to the Future Celebration

While fans were clamoring to get their hands on Pepsi Perfect and witnessing history being made with the first pair of power-lace shoes from Nike, the more hardcore Back to the Future fans were in California at the five-day 30th anniversary celebration We’re Going Back. With screenings, reenactments, location visits and more, this was the place to be.

But tickets were also expensive as hell, and if you’re like me, you just couldn’t afford to fly over to California to enjoy the festivities (though I did get to experience Back to the Future live in concert on October 21st). However, you can now kinda pretend that you attended We’re Going Back with some quick video recaps of the best stuff from each day of the Back to the Future celebration. Read More »

Enjoy a Shia LaBeouf Movie Marathon with Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf as Mutt Williams

Shia LaBeouf has become quite the performance artist over the past few years. People possibly talk more about his live-performances — the “I am not famous anymore” bag on his head, for example, or him sitting in a room all day as strangers come in and say what they please — than his actual big-screen performances. The guy’s doing something right, because he has our attention. Now, for the next few days, you can watch a live-stream of his latest project.

Hans Zimmer is going on tour. When I heard this fantastic news, I quickly dropped what I was doing to look up the tour dates. To my great disappointment, none of the concerts are in the States. If you live in Europe, though, you’re in luck, because that’s where the composer behind InceptionTrue RomanceThe Thin Red LineCrimson TideRain Man, and Megamind will be conducing live-performances.
