To celebrate it’s 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, Bottleneck Gallery has released Andy Fairhurst‘s 88MPH, part of his “Nerd’s Eye View” series, as a set of poster prints. The Back to the Future trilogy is brought to life on three 12 x 24 inch giclee prints on velvet fine art paper in a limited edition of only 125. Available now for $35 each or $95 for the complete set — get them before they sell out. I personally love the Back to the Future Part 2 art but not the other two as much.

Raiders of the Lost Art, Jaws, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, Die Hard – these are some of the most popular films ever made. They also have some of the most recognizable posters of all time. So, as an artist, attempting to make a poster for one is no easy feat. Do you just put everyone’s face in the frame? Maybe you try to sum up the story with one image? The options are endless, and sometimes not that appealing.
Artist Anthony Petrie has quietly been perfecting a unique, very cool way to approach well-known films. Over the past year or so, he’s been making posters for iconic movies that look like charts or maps of each movie. So, for example, he did Ghostbusters as a New York City subway map, filled with references. Die Hard became a set of Nakatomi Tower blueprints and Aliens became a readout on a motion tracker. Each poster represent these amazing movies in subtle ways, specific to the movie, without going overboard on character likenesses. They showed something more artistic and fun.
January 9 at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, Petrie is presenting a whole new exhibit of new work in that mode. It’s called Charts, and he’s doing maps for some of the movies mentioned above and many more. Below, check out just a few of the Anthony Petrie Gallery 1988 Charts including an exclusive from a galaxy far, far away. Read More »
There’s little debate that the first Rocky is the best Rocky. To this day, Sylvester Stallone‘s Oscar-winning underdog story holds up because of its unpredictable nature and great, unique characters.
The bigger question is, what’s the most beloved film of the franchise? The one fans will watch time and time again no matter what else is on. For my money, that’s Rocky IV, the montage-mad 1985 film that pitted the Italian Stallion against the unstoppable Ivan Drago, played by Dolph Lundgren in his prime. Rocky IV is by far the cheesiest of the series (squeaking out a win over Rocky III by a close margin) but it’s so unabashedly ’80s, from the music to the Cold War narrative, that’s it’s hard not to enjoy.
Rocky IV has gotten some poster love in the past but Jason Edmiston‘s newest gem takes the cake. It perfectly represents the film’s over-the-top tone while also being just a damn good looking poster. Skuzzles will release the poster on Boxing Day, December 26, and /Film is proud to exclusively give you a glimpse at the gorgeous Rocky IV poster by Jason Edmiston. Read More »
As the holiday season continues, one property that’s sure to be at the top of many lists is Guardians of the Galaxy. The Marvel Studios movie remains the highest grossing domestic film of the year, spawning a whole new legion of fans for the previously obscure characters. Some may get the Blu-ray, others a poster or action figure, but when you’re the director of the film, your level of gift gets significantly better.
In the last few days, co-writer and director James Gunn has gotten some absolutely amazing Guardians of the Galaxy gifts. A few are from Marvel, others from friends, but it’s proof that several years of non-stop, incredibly hard work does beget some really cool gifts. Check out James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy gifts below. Read More »
Audiences probably didn’t realize at the time, but Sergio Leone‘s 1966 western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was a landmark. It would become one of, if not the, iconic films in the careers of Leone, its stars Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef, composer Ennio Morricone as well as one of the most recognizable and imitated films in the Western genre.
All that makes it the perfect piece for a beautiful, limited edition poster, and Skuzzles is happy to oblige. The Canadian company has hired meticulous and lyrical artist JC Richard to do a beautiful screenprint of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which goes on sale December 23. We’re proud to exclusively debut The Good The Bad and The Ugly poster below. Read More »

2014 is coming to a close, which means there are only a few more days left in the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott‘s Alien. We recently pronounced the sci-fi masterpiece the director’s best film and there weren’t many arguments about that. Not only did the film create a star and a franchise, it set the standard for what sci-fi horror could be. The film’s designs and environments set a standard for what fans could expect from other films. Visually, Alien is just about as iconic as a movie can be.
Visuals are where the Poster Posse lives. The online poster collective has been making posters for all kinds of releases over the past year or so. To wrap up 2014, they’ve made at set of 35th anniversary Alien posters. Check out a few of our favorites below. Read More »
