I know: you’re still high on Star Wars and you will probably continue to be high on it until Star Wars: The Force Awakens slowly trudges out of theaters in a few months. But can we all pause for about 10 minutes and shift gears to Star Trek? Okay, five minutes. Deal. Let’s do this.
2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the greatest (well, most consistent) science fiction series of all time and everyone involved is pulling out all the stops. Paramount is releasing Star Trek Beyond, which will hopefully be a necessary course correction after the bummer that was Star Trek Into Darkness. CBS is planning a new television series that will premiere in January 2017. And now, Roddenberry Entertainment, the namesake company of Trek’s original creator, Gene Roddenberry, is getting in on the celebration. They will release a never-before-seen image from Star Trek history every single day throughout 2016…and they’ve already revealed three bonus images, just to whet your appetite.

We’re on the verge of having an entire generation never know the exquisite joy of shuffling through a video rental store to pick out the movie you want to take home for the weekend. Sure, compared to DVD and eventually Blu-ray, the quality of VHS was abysmal.

Now one cinephile has decided to resurrect a small part of that joy by giving modern movies like Mad Max: Fury Road, Ex Machina and The Revenant their own retro-style VHS covers that you might have seen on shelves at your local video store. Check them out! Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
One of our favorite artists is Olly Moss. He’s the one who made those incredible silhouette posters for the original Star Wars trilogy, which were recently perfectly parodied for a series of Spaceballs posters by Joshua Budich, on sale now. And at one point, he created a cool little piece for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I for Empire Magazine.
Now Moss has delivered some even more impressive Harry Potter artwork, for all seven of the books in J.K. Rowling‘s fantasy series. And you’ll be able to get your hands on them pretty easily, because they’re the new covers for the Harry Potter eBooks that are available right now. Check them all out below! Read More »
