I’m not a gun nut or even a gun guy, but this looks cool. Cathryn Lavery of Calm The Ham has created an amazing art print titled “The Filmography of Guns”. The 24 x 36 screen print features a visual history of “iconic guns from film and television in 115 intricately detailed hand-illustrations.” But even cooler than the print is a full-color 120+ page reference guide containing all 115+ gun illustrations in larger sizes alongside images of the original sketches and additional information like the background history of each gun model, as well as other films they played a key role in. Hit the jump to see more images of The Filmography of Guns print and the book.

When discussing the films of Wes Anderson, many people seem to choose 2009′s Fantastic Mr. Fox as their least favorite of his movies. I find that fact to be crazy because, in 2009, Fantastic Mr. Fox was my favorite film of the year.
Sure it looked different from rest of Anderson’s films, but at its heart, it really wasn’t. Anderson’s musical choices, parental themes, locked-off camera angles and long takes were all there, just seen through the eyes of stop-motion animation. Watch it again and it’s as timeless, if not more so, than most of the directors other films.
And now, it’s the first Anderson film to get its own toy line. Funko will release four beautiful Fantastic Mr Fox toys from the animated film in November. Check them out below. Read More »
Edgar Wright had one, J.J. Abrams had one, and now Joss Whedon is having one. Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles is hosing a Joss Whedon art show starting opening from 7-10 p.m. September 5 and on display through September 27.
Artists from around the world were given carte blanche to make all kinds of art based on the world of Whedon with the exception of The Avengers, because Gallery 1988 already hosted an Avengers exhibit a few years back. That means Buffy, Angel, Firefly, The Cabin in the Woods, Dr. Horrible, Dollhouse and more are all on the table. And the artists delivered in spades.
Below, we’ve got a huge sample of work from the Joss Whedon art show. Check it out. Read More »
In July, Hot Toys announced they would be producing a Back to the Future 1/6th scale Marty McFly Figure as part of their Movie Masterpiece line. The first photos of the Michael J Fox-replica Marty McFly figure was very impressive, but what was in the background of the photos got even more buzz: a 1/6th Scale DeLorean Time Machine replica. From what I hear, Hot Toys only created the vehicle as set dressing for the Marty figure, but the response at Comic Con 2014 (where the figure was on display with the car) convinced them to make it a reality.
And today they have released new photos of the prototype, along with information about the features of the collectible, price and more. Since I was a child, I always wanted top own a DeLorean time machine — this might be my only (reasonably affordable) chance. Hit the jump to learn more about the Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine.

Since last year’s D23 Expo, director Brad Bird has been very quiet about his sci-fi Disney fantasy, Tomorrowland. The film stars George Clooney, was co-written by Damon Lindelof, and has been as secretive about its production as that other Disney sci-fi movie. Those flood gates are ready to open though as Tomorrowland will have presentations in the coming months at New York Comic-Con and Destination D.
But that’s not all. Leading up to Tomorrowland‘s May 2015 release date, a prequel book called Before Tomorrowland is in the works and one website believes they’ve found an early look at it. What do the images show? An epic meeting of the minds that could explain the alternate dimensions in Tomorrowland, as well as a tie into Walt Disney. Check out your possible first look at the Tomorrowland movie history below. Read More »
Over the course of 45 years, Stanley Kubrick made only 13 films. It’s a staggering number because his work is so influential, so revered and still so incredibly powerful, each one might as well count for 100. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and his films continue to inspire artists young and old.
Many of those artists are part of a new exhibit at Spoke Art in San Francisco. Simply titled “Kubrick,” the show consists of over 60 artists making art based on the films of the director in all kind of mediums. Everything from limited edition screenprints all the way up to one of a kind sculptures, there’s a huge array of beautiful work paying homage to films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, Lolita, Paths of Glory and others. Below see just a few of the pieces in the Stanley Kubrick art show, which opens Friday September 6 through 27. Read More »
