Richard Linklater gets lots of love for his smaller movies like Dazed and Confused, Before Midnight, Bernie and Waking Life. Rightfully so. But one of his films that is sometimes overlooked is also, by far, the biggest grossing film of his career. That would be 2003′s School of Rock.
Written by Mike White and starring Jack Black, the film follows a slacker who poses as a substitute teacher, then turns his class into a world-class rock band. It’s one of those crowd-pleasing films that don’t really exist anymore; I dare you to turn it off if it’s ever on cable. The film’s 10 year anniversary is coming up in October and, to celebrate, Odd City Entertainment has commissioned artist NE to immortalize the film in screenprint. It’ll be exclusively available at an Austin-based anniversary screening of the film.
Check out the poster, and how to get tickets, below. Read More »
Marvel is creating its very own circus, and touring it across the United States. Dubbed The Marvel Experience, the project is a blend of theme park and museum elements housed under a 50,000 square feet dome (about the size of two football fields) that’ll travel to roughly 20 cities in 2014. Fans will be able to ride a 4D motion ride, watch 3D movies, interact with holograms, read motion comic books and more, all in one place. The whole thing is designed to make the customer feel like a superhero in the Marvel universe. Read More »
Every time you see a piece of art by Jason Edmiston, it takes a second to process. You have to look closely and ask, “Am I looking at a photo or is this a painting?” The next question is whether or not you have enough money to buy it.
Edmiston is the man behind the next solo show at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas. It’s called A Rogues Gallery. The Toronto-based artist has done several brand new acrylic paintings immortalizing some of the biggest and baddest villains in cinema history. Characters from films like Ghostbusters, RoboCop, Predator, Terminator, Aliens, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and they’ll all be on display starting Friday August 23. Check out a sampling below.

In just over one week, Edgar Wright‘s fourth feature film, The World’s End, hits theaters in the US. That’s as good an excuse as any to look back at Wright’s previous films and celebrate our shared love of them. Those films, of course, are Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. There’s also the amazing TV show Spaced that acted as a precursor to those films.
Wright’s work has been immortalized in various media (such as Mondo posters, original paintings, and gig posters) and Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles is doing all that and then some. On Tuesday August 20, they’re hosting The Official Edgar Wright Art Show and we’re happy to share a pretty healthy sampling of works that’ll be on display including a few exclusive debuts.

It’s been six years since the last Harry Potter book came out, and two years since the last Harry Potter movie hit theaters. But the Harry Potter fandom remains as devoted as ever, and Warner Bros. and Universal Orlando Resort want to do their part to keep it that way.
The studio will host A Celebration of Harry Potter at the theme park next year, a three-day convention similar to the Star Wars Celebration that Star Wars enthusiasts have been enjoying for years. Hit the jump to get all the details.

Both Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were born out of a basin of movie history. Each film is drenched in movie reference, be it visual or a line of dialogue, which adds a whole other layer of enjoyment on top of the individual stories. For the third film in The Cornetto Trilogy, writer/director Edgar Wright gets away from that. The World’s End is a movie obviously influenced by the history of film, but in a much less overt way. If anything, it’s overtly referencing Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, making it a great end to the trilogy.
The World’s End has plenty of influence though and, for his third screening series at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, CA, Wright has picked 14 films, on seven double features, that all had some inspiration in his latest work. The screening series is called The World’s End Is Nigh and it takes place August 9 through August 22, the eve of The World’s End. Check out the full line up below. Read More »
