You probably know Matt Ferguson‘s work. He did the popular Guardians of the Galaxy/Star Wars mashup. He did these beautiful Star Wars and Lord of the Rings prints. He’s got an great eye for pop culture but, more important, the space a pop culture character inhabits. That’ll be the focus of his first solo show, Distant Lands, which opens Friday March 27 at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
Ferguson has created 10 new screenprints and 24 original pieces all showing pop culture characters in various, vast environments. Some of these – like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings – you’ve probably already seen. However, /Film is happy to exclusively reveal the bulk of the show including pieces for The Fifth Element, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Superman, The Hobbit, The Neverending Story, Forbidden Planet and Silent Running.

One of the biggest films of the spring may be the latest sci-fi creator from Neill Blomkamp, Chappie. Starring Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Sigourney Weaver, the film tells the story of an artificially intelligent robot which finds a place in human society. Buzz has been pretty solid on the film, which promises to combine action, drama and intelligence in a way that could only come from the mind of the director of District 9.
When a movie features robots, explosions, rap stars and giant mechs, you can be sure the Poster Posse is going to take notice. The online art collective has been making cool representations for several recent blockbusters: Guardians of the Galaxy, Interstellar, Big Hero 6, etc. and now they’re tackling Chappie.

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.
That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »
DC almost beat Marvel to the punch. Years ago, DC and Warner Bros. had recruited a then cult writer named Joss Whedon to write a script for a Wonder Woman movie. Unfortunately, the film didn’t get made.
Years later, Joss Whedon went on to direct the biggest superhero movie of all time, The Avengers, and Warner Bros. is again developing a Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot and directed by Michelle MacLaren. But fans still like to imagine what Whedon’s Wonder Woman may have been and now, we have a small glimpse.
A promotional poster for the would-be movie was available at San Diego Comic-Con 2005 has now made it on eBay. It’s available along with artist Adam Hughes‘ original drawing, making the set a very exciting and rare thing. Below, check out both pieces of Joss Whedon Wonder Woman art work. Read More »

Until films like Doctor Strange go in front of cameras, we rarely get to see what the actors look like in costume. That’s where the fan community comes in. They’re always more than willing to grab an image of a famous actor, and others of their newly attention-getting role to put them together, giving us an idea what we might see on the big screen in the future. Two such recent instances are fan art of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Gal Gadot in some upgraded Wonder Woman armor. Check them out below. Read More »
When you break down the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, there are really only seven things in it. There’s John Boyega as a Stormtrooper, the ball droid, the new Stormtroopers, Daisy Ridley and her speeder, Oscar Isaac and the X-Wings, the hooded figure with the lightsaber and the Millennium Falcon. It’s not a lot if you think about it, but it’s enough that the imaginations of the Internet exploded. Not just with speculation either. Artists have begun creating beautiful works with those seven images and we’ve compiled just a few of them below. Check out a ton of Star Wars: The Force Awakens fan art below. Read More »

The Interstellar rumblings have began. Star John Lithgow saw the movie this weekend in New York and said the following about it: “Mind blown at 8AM, secret IMAX screening of #Interstellar in NY. So proud to be in it.” I’ve heard rumors of tears upon tears at other early screenings too. Basically, November 7 can’t get here fast enough to show us Christopher Nolan‘s take on space travel starring Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow, Wes Bentley and more.
As we get ready for the film, the Poster Posse has begun to pay tribute. Multiple artists have made fan posters for the highly anticipated sci-fi epic. Check out the Poster Posse Interstellar posters below. Read More »
