There’s no arguing Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws is a masterpiece. An infinitely rewatchable thriller that’s quotable, entertaining and influential. One of the many places you see that influence today is the pop culture art world. Jaws is regularly one of the most reimagined properties out there. There have been full art shows dedicated to the film as well as innumerable one off pieces here and there. And with each subsequent poster released, the artists seem to be inspired to top one another.
Which leads us to the latest Jaws print by Kevin M. Wilson aka Ape Meets Girl. He took the intense film and boiled it down into a serene landscape showing Amity Island in its before, and after, settings. See the full Ape Meets Girl Jaws posters below. Read More »
Furious 7 isn’t even in theaters yet but its star has begun teasing the follow up. Vin Diesel popped up on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and said that Kurt Russell wasn’t cast in Furious 7 for Furious 7. He was cast for a story that happens afterward in New York, which is an obvious tease about Fast and Furious 8. Watch the video and read more about the Fast and Furious 8 setting below. Read More »
A Presidential conversation with a TV creator admittedly is on the borderline of this site’s focus. But when that TV creator is David Simon, the man primarily responsible for arguably the best TV show ever, The Wire, and he’s talking about issues in that show with the sitting President of the United States, that’s something more. That’s historic and something anyone who is a fan of The Wire would be interested in seeing. Watch the President Obama The Wire video below. Read More »
Max Dalton is an artist we’ve featured on /Film numerous times. He’s done incredible work based on the films of Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers and many others. His style is deceptively simple, but by somehow perfectly evokes a quirky tone that’s either perfectly in line with filmmakers like those, or delightfully polarized from others.
Dalton’s first solo show is called On A Mission From God and it opens at 6 p.m. April 4 at Spoke Art in San Francisco. It consists of a wide variety of pop culture influenced art from a small new series called “Greatest Moments in Film,” more traditions limited edition prints brimming with hilarious and unique detail, and even homemade toys and games. Have you ever wanted to play Where’s Waldo, but in the world of Breaking Bad? How about have a poster of your favorite Seinfeld quotes? What would a Groundhog Day board game be like? All of that and more is part of this exhibit.
Below, read more about the first Max Dalton solo show and see a bunch of art from it including several pieces exclusive to /Film. Read More »

When Furious 7 opens this weekend, one big question fans will be asking is “How can the franchise possibly top the action in that?” Looking backwards, one of the ways Furious 7 ups the ante from Fast and Furious 6 is by casting bigger actors and better fighters. Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Ronda Rousey and Tony Jaa are just a few of the new famous faces that join the cast for this latest installment in the mega action franchise. Adding marquee names is one way the Fast and Furious franchise can raise the bar again if and when an eighth film happens.
If that’s the case, the talent is already lining up. Oscar-winner Helen Mirren has said she’d love to be in Fast and Furious 8. Read the Helen Mirren Fast and Furious quotes below. Read More »

In June 2014, I visited the London set of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Over the last couple months we have posted our on set interviews with Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr, director Joss Whedon, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans. This morning we are posting our interview with Whiplash and Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Here is a short snippet from Olsen explains her super abilities:
Yeah. So, I am able to go into someone’s head and make them see their almost like –I can feel and see what they feel and see, so it’s not just manipulating them. But what I love about her is that in so many superhero films emotions are kind of negated a bit but for her everything that someone else could feel, like their weakest moment, she physically goes through that same experience with them, which is pretty cool. So if they have a biggest darkest fear, I could see that. … I can control energy. I can manipulate energy. So that’s what the red stuff is that we’re playing with.
