For us in the audience, Mad Max: Fury Road felt thrillingly new when it raced into theaters this summer. But for director George Miller, it was the culmination of an idea that had been kicking around in his head for nearly two decades. A new book, The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road, shows us Miller’s original handwritten outline for the movie, dating all the way back to 1997.
Of course, now that Mad Max: Fury Road is actually out, it’s inspired its own wave of creativity, this time from the fans who fell for it in cinemas. One of the most stunning pieces of fan art we’ve seen retells Miller’s saga in — of all things — ancient Egyptian style. After the jump, see Miller’s original Fury Road outline and an Egyptian-style Fury Road reinterpretation. Read More »

Earlier this summer, we highlighted a video that showed you how to make a Back to the Future Part II hoverboard for just $33, which would be the perfect thing to take with you when you head to Los Angeles for the big 30th anniversary celebration happening in October (at least if you’ve got $800 lying around for a ticket).
But for those who don’t have a need for such a big homemade prop, maybe you’d like to make a nice little creation to set upon your desk that still shows how much you love Back to the Future. YouTube user DaveHax has created a video that shows you how to create a miniature Pepsi can DeLorean time machine model. Looks like a nice little arts and crafts project to pass the time. Read More »
When Comic-Con comes around each year, not only is there an overwhelming rush of blockbuster news, but there’s also a huge drain on our wallets. The convention has a slew of collectibles, toys, art, comics and plenty of other nerdy goods that would look great on our walls and shelves, and we’ve got another round of good stuff to spend your money on.
Gallery 1988, who has been responsible for some fantastic pop culture art exhibitions (like their recent tribute to Clue on its 30th anniversary), will be at Comic-Con next week, and they’ve just unveiled some of the exclusives that they’ll have on sale. Some of the pieces pay tribute to Star Wars, Mad Max, Marvel, Aliens and more. Check out the Gallery 1988 Comic-Con 2015 exclusives below! Read More »
This year marks the anniversary of several movies, including the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the 40th anniversary of Jaws and the 25th anniversary of Gremlins 2: The New Batch. But there’s another film that may not be quite as celebrated, but deserves to be honored for its 30th anniversary this year: the murder mystery comedy Clue.
Based on the classic board game of the same name, the film brings to life the strange and perplexing murder mystery that keeps getting worse as the stormy night carries on. If there’s one piece of evidence to show that adapting a board game into a movie can work, it’s Clue. And Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the movie with a collection of fantastic, original artwork. Check out the Gallery 1988 Clue artwork after the jump! Read More »
Last weekend, Pixar’s Inside Out took audiences inside the mind of a young girl named Riley, and if you haven’t had the chance to see it yet, just know that the film will certainly pull at your heartstrings in the best way possible.
Pixar’s visualization of the voices in our head is full of charm, wit and tenderness, and Poster Posse has brought them to life in another way with a gallery of artwork honoring Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Anger (Lewis Black). They all get their own individual pieces while a couple puts them all in a single image.
