Past examples include Godzilla, Interstellar, Guardians of the Galaxy, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Pacific Rim and Big Hero 6.

Mondo has just announced they’re doing a series of posters based on the films of Terrence Malick. It’ll take place over the course of the year but it’s starting in the same place Malick did, the 1973 film Badlands. Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek starred in the story of a young girl who takes taken on a killing spree by her boyfriend. Artist Tomer Hanuka did the poster and it goes on sale March 19. Below, see the full image of the Mondo Badlands poster. Read More »
The essence of every character is the eyes and nowhere is that better seen than right this moment at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas. Their latest exhibit is called Eyes Without A Face by Jason Edmiston. Edmiston is an unfathomably talented painter who can capture the likeness and emotion of a character in ways you didn’t think were possible. He takes that ability to the next level with this show, where he painted the eyes of over 150 different pop culture characters. It’s a unique and fascinating exercise to prove you can almost instantly pick out any character, just by seeing a few inches of their face.
And, just to make things interesting, he did each painting in actual size. So King Kong is several feet long while characters from The Lego Movie are less than an inch. Below, find out more about the show, see images from inside and just a fraction of the amazing art in Eyes Without a Face at the Mondo Gallery. Read More »
Admittedly, French filmmaker Jacques Tati doesn’t get a lot of love on this site. We’re always so focused on the future, there’s not a lot of time to look into the past. But every once in a while there’s a big, bright, beautiful reason to celebrate the history of film and today is one of those days. (If you don’t know Tati’s work, check out this great Playtime trailer.)
Popular and talented artist Laurent Durieux has teamed up with Nautilus to do a series of prints based on the small but tremendously impactful career of Tati. The first is, predictably, for Tati’s first film, Jour de fête. The poster is called François à l’Américaine, it’s officially licensed and goes on sale Friday March 13 as a timed edition. See the full image below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re currently in the third month of 2015. That puts us three months after all those bad Back to the Future Part II jokes and seven months away from the actual date Marty and Doc arrive in the futuristic year. It’s also only four months from the actual 30-year anniversary of the release of the original Back to the Future, which makes it a great time to remind everyone how amazing that trilogy of films is with a full fledged, Back to the Future art show. It will open March 6 at Meltdown Comics on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles and features 88 artists paying homage to the fantastic series.
Below, see a dozen images from the show and find out all the pertinent information. Read More »
As a film fan, one of the eternal debates is The Godfather vs. The Godfather Part II. Both films won Best Picture and both films are all time classics. No one is disputing that. But forced to choose one, do you choose the rise of Michael Corleone as his father, Don Vito Corleone, passes on? Or do you choose the epic dual story of the Corleone family’s beginning, with Vito’s rise to power, alongside its expansion, as Michael broadens and splits the family? It’s a Catch 22, Sophie’s Choice if ever there was one and a debate that’s sure to go on forever.
On the poster side, though, this debate has been closed.
Last year, Odd City Entertainment debuted their official Godfather license with a beautiful piece by Laurent Durieux. Today, they’ve revealed part two of the poster trilogy, also by Durieux. And no knock on the artist himself, but his version of The Godfather Part II blows the original away. See the full Laurent Durieux Godfather Part II poster, and get all the details, below.

Movie quotes are the currency by which we pay respect to our favorite films. Buy all the tickets you want, but the moment you truly prove your love of a movie is when you quote it in regular conversation. By that rationale, the new show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles is an unabashed love fest.
The show is called Quotes, Lines & Lyrics and it’s comprised of the work of over 70 artists all who have created work based around famous lines of dialogue from a movie, TV show or song. It opens February 27 and remains on display through March 15. Online sales start February 28. Below, see just a few of our favorite pop culture quotes turned into art. Read More »
