UPDATE: We’ve added a bunch of new artwork from the show!
Just last month we learned that Mondo was having another gallery show this month, this time paying tribute to the modern action adventure classic Jurassic Park. The gallery won’t open up in Austin, Texas until June 12th, when Jurassic World hits theaters, but in the meantime, some new artwork from the show has just been unveiled.
The show is appropriate called “When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth,” and it’s chock full of phenomenal, original artwork with plenty of references to everyone’s favorite dinosaur flick.

Paul Verhoven’s Robocop is one of those pop culture properties that is represented by a lot of posters. But, frankly, I think we’re probably okay with that. The film is awesome, a classic that is entertaining, subversive and worth revisiting again and again. Plus, it’s a franchise that proves if the original works, celebrate it, don’t try to do it over.
The latest poster for Robocop is by artist James White, aka Signal Noise, whose colorful, almost electric work you’ve probably seen on the site before. His take on this film is simple and iconic, and very of the ’80s era. Even with that, it still takes 10 different colors in the screenprinting process to make it pop.
Below, check out our exclusive reveal of James White’s Skuzzles Robocop poster, which will be released on May 29. Read More »
Craig Drake‘s work can stop you in your tracks. Drake uses what feels like a bare minimum of elements to perfectly represent his subject in a striking and distinctive way. You might call it “minimalist,” but that would be a discredit to the energy contained in each piece.
In 2014, Drake had a very-well received solo show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. A few of the pieces even made my best of the year list. This year, the did a follow up show that contained even more beautiful work based on properties we all know and love. Stuff like Star Wars, Tron, Kill Bill, Akira, Pulp Fiction and more. Below, check out images from the latest Craig Drake Solo Show. Read More »
We’re going to do something a little different with this poster post. There’s an awesome poster available right now called The Defender, by artist Ian Glaubinger. It’s a Voltron poster. But instead of just telling you about it, we talked to Glaubinger about the making of the poster, and the vision behind it. He also provided us with multiple different process shots. Hopefully, you’ll get an idea how one of these limited edition screenprints gets made.
Below, find out all about the making of Ian Glaubinger’s Voltron print, The Defender. Read More »

Growing up, The Goonies was one of those movies I could watch over and over. The sense of adventure that permeated the film satisfied my childhood craving to go out into the world and find something. To become something greater. Lots of other people felt that too, and it’s since become a film revered by many, and one people talk about when they talk about the Eighties.
The Goonies opened on June 7, 1985, almost exactly thirty years ago. To celebrate, Gallery Nucleus outside Los Angeles, CA is presenting a Goonies 30th anniversary art show opening May 23 and running through the official anniversary on June 7. Below, you can see some exclusive images from the show. Read More »
Friday May 22 is one of those great days to be a pop culture art collector. In Los Angeles, Gallery 1988 has Joshua Budich’s Fictional Food as well as Hero Complex’s Craig Drake Solo Show II.

Whether you’re a human, animal, alien, cartoon, hobbit, robot or something else, one thing links almost every single character in pop culture: food. We all need something to keep us going, give us energy and maybe be the object of a joke. Some of these pop culture food items can even be as popular as the characters themselves, like the Wonka chocolate Bar, pink Simpsons donut or Pac Man cherries. Fictional Food is everywhere, and it is also the name and subject of Joshua Budich‘s solo exhibit opening Friday May 22 at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, CA.
It’ll consist of 36 small screenprints of fictional food from stories such as Lost, The Simpsons, The Legend of Zelda, and Toy Story, as well as six larger pieces. Below, check out just a hint of the show as well as an exclusive Star Wars piece you’ll only find previewed here on /Film. Read More »
This week finally brings Brad Bird‘s original Disney sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland to theaters. Just yesterday brought some early buzz on the film, and it doesn’t sound overwhelmingly good. Our own Peter Sciretta has seen it a couple times, and was a little disappointed, but has warmed up to it after revisiting. Everyone else can judge for themselves this weekend.
In the meantime, Poster Posse has decided to put together a small tribute to the film with a few wonderful pieces of artwork. Check out the Poster Posse Tomorrowland artwork below! Read More »
