If you ask someone to name every character who survived the events of Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece Alien, they’d surely mention Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley blasting that Xenomorph into space and putting herself in suspended animation for the long, ill-fated trip home. But will they mention Jonesy, the incredibly lucky ginger cat who somehow manages to avoid death at the claws and jaws of the galaxy’s most dangerous predator and the Nostromo’s self-destruction? As an animal fan, watching Ripley struggle to get to the escape shuttle while toting a clunky animal kennel while a vicious alien pursues her is high on my list of nightmares.
The incredible Bottleneck Gallery has revealed the first in new series of Alien posters and the focus is squarely on the film’s two non-human characters: the alien itself and Jonsey the cat. Sure, the rest of the crew is present as well, but they’re, well, more than a little dead.

Paramount Pictures and IMAX have given us the opportunity to debut the IMAX illustrated poster for 10 Cloverfield Lane created by a UK artist Kevin M Wilson, who goes by the pseudonym Ape Meets Girl. We’ve featured his work many times in the past on /Film; you might remember his Jaws, Back to the Future, WALL-E, Peter Pan or Incredibles posters. His latest is for the J.J. Abrams-produced, Dan Trachtenberg-directed thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, which hits theaters nationwide on March 11th, 2016. Hit the jump to see the Ape Meets Girl 10 Cloverfield Lane poster and read my brief chat with the artist. How many hidden Easter eggs can you spot in the art?

Even though we’re big fans of all the collectible artwork that Mondo throws out there for us to plaster our walls with, we also love what comes out of Gallery 1988. Personally, I have several pieces from their Ghostbusters 30th anniversary exhibition on my wayy, and I’m always on the lookout for their next great print series. And a very interesting new one has just been revealed.
Gallery 1988 has announced a new series called Friends of the Gallery, pairing up what they call some of their “most creative gallery buyers” with some of their favorite gallery artists to collaborate on a special limited edition piece of work. The first in this series comes by way of Robot Chicken creator and actor Seth Green teaming up with artist Joshua Budich, and they’ve decided to bring a Raising Arizona print to the table. Check it out! Read More »

Director Richard Linklater is one of Austin, Texas’ favorite sons, so it was not surprising in the slightest when his newest movie, Everybody Wants Some, was selected to open this year’s SXSW Film Festival. Linklater’s work has screened at the fest on several occasions and Linklater himself has put in more than a few memorable appearances. He interviewed fellow Texan Wes Anderson after a screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel a few years ago and it was magnificent.
And that brings us to the news of the moment: Mondo, the Austin-based purveyor of terrific film and pop culture-related posters that sell out way too fast, is dedicating its next gallery show to Linklater and his work.
