Plenty of blockbusters and classic sci-fi movies have gotten the collectible artwork treatment from Mondo, Gallery 1988 and more, but the modern classic Silence of the Lambs has rarely been afforded such a tribute. Previously, Mondo had Caesar Moreno create a couple of pieces, and Ken Taylor crafted one a little while back as well. But now it’s Grey Matter Art showing some love for the Best Picture winner from 1991 with a gorgeous new print (and variant) from artist Florian Bertmer.

If you’re one of those people who has always wanted your own lightsaber, and you’re not scared of potentially blinding yourself with science, then you might want to pay attention. Allen Pan, the engineering whiz who built a version of Thor’s hammer that only he could lift, has constructed himself a real lightsaber. He shows off the power of this custom creation by first lighting a cigarette with it, and then setting one of his friends on fire. See the real lightsaber in action below. Read More »
The Ghostbusters reboot/remake, or whatever you want to call it, is coming this summer. We already know there’s plenty of merchandising coming for the new movie because director Paul Feig already showed off some Ghostbusters action figures of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. But I don’t think anyone was expecting this yet.
Ghostbusters fans were rather pleased to get a LEGO set commemorating the titular paranormal exterminators and their iconic car, the revamped classic ambulance known as the Ecto-1. The vehicle got a pretty sweet companion set in the form of the Ghostbsuters’ firehouse this year, and now they’ll both have some company in the form of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters.
The first photos of the set featuring the team’s new vehicle and some awesome minifigures have been revealed and you can see them below. But beware, because one piece of the set gives away a bit of a spoiler. Read More »
Virtual reality is about to take off in a big way. Just recently we learned that Disney and Lucasfilm are developing new Star Wars stories, directed and written by big name filmmakers and screenwriters, for virtual reality, to connect with the upcoming films. Plus, VR showcases such as The Martian VR Experience from Ridley Scott have been getting quite the buzz and we’re a bit bummed we couldn’t check it out while it was at Sundance last month. Now another heavy-hitting filmmaker looks to be making the journey to VR as well.
Steven Spielberg previously signed on to be an advisor to Virtual Reality Company (VRC), and now he’s reportedly working with them on a project that is solely for VR. Find out more about the Steven Spielberg VR collaboration below. Read More »
