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. But there was still something special about going to the local video store and just walking the aisles and finding something for your viewing pleasure.
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 »

Mondo, the purveyor of the coolest geek-centric art, toys and apparel to ever sell out in seconds, have gone and put together a Marvel Comics gallery show. Located at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas, Snikt. Bamf. Thwip: A Celebration of Marvel Comics is an art show for comic book fans of all tastes.

And we are pleased to present an exclusive look at every single poster premiering at the show’s opening tonight. Check out the new Marvel Mondo Gallery after the jump.

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 »
One of the best unconventional Christmas movies to rewatch around this time of the year is undoubtedly Joe Dante‘s cult horror comedy Gremlins. With outstanding creature effects, the right blend of dark humor and horror, and that adorable Gizmo, it’s just a nice change of pace from the usual holiday fare.
And if you’re a big fan of the Steven Spielberg presented film, then you might want to pay close attention to Mondo tomorrow for their new Gremlins print by Jessica Seamans, commemorating the wild movie theater experience the gremlins have while watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Read More »

Kevin Dart is one of my favorite artists, yet we haven’t had too much of a chance to feature him on /Film as he doesn’t do a ton of pop culture artwork. You might remember he did that awesome triptych set of posters for Inception which were available at IMAX screenings of the film, and also some of his beautiful early concept art paintings for Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6.
Dart has an art show at Gallery 1988 East which opens up this Friday night that I wanted to feature on the site even though it doesn’t have any direct connections to movies or television (but if you’ve watched movies like Apollo 13, The Martian or Gravity or any other space film, these are related indirectly). Kevin Dart’s Science & Nature art show will feature prints that focus “on the wonder that is space and our surroundings.” Because we’re all geeks here (right?), I thought I’d post a preview of the space and NASA inspired prints that will be available at the show. Hit the jump to see them now.

We’ve featured plenty of work from artist Matt Ferguson, from his Lord of the Rings poster set to his Star Wars trilogy collection and his art show in Brooklyn this past spring. Now we have one more cool piece to add to his impressive line-up, and it pays tribute to Paul Verhoeven’s contemporary action classic, RoboCop.
See the full Robocop print and find out where you can get one after the jump! Read More »
