Many times, the international version of a movie poster is much better than the domestic one. International marketing teams seem more willing to take visual risks, and therefore, we’re given more interesting and evocative artwork.
So what if your favorite limited, pop culture art was given a foreign spin? That’s the general idea behind Native Tongue, a three person show that opens November 9 at the Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach, CA. Jay Shaw, Jason Liwag and Rico Cabina have each made new posters that look like they’re from overseas for some of their favorite films. Shaw did Polish-inspired works, Cabina simulated Mexican designs, and Liwag did Japanese. The result is a simultaneously familiar and unfamiliar collection of movie posters for films like Dick Tracy, Eyes Wide Shut, Big Trouble In Little China, and The Rocketeer. Check out a small sampling below. Read More »
Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity has quickly become one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. At $219 million and counting, with a full awards season run likely, the 3D space thriller has firmly planted itself in popular culture both for this year and years to come. It makes sense, then, that the evil geniuses at Mondo have created an officially licensed poster for the film. And for art fans, the fact it was done by technical master Kevin Tong is even less of a surprise. Check out the full poster below along with a process video. Read More »
As attention spans shrink and the written word becomes more obsolete, the modern novel is facing a problem similar to movie theaters. How can we make reading a physical book essential? One possible suggestion is provide content that needs to be touched, and J.J. Abrams‘ latest idea is just that.
After a few teases we finally have our look at S, a novel conceived by Abrams and written by Doug Porst. Much like Mark Z. Danielewski’s amazing House of Leaves and a number of other books that have gone before, S is a novel with a secondary story happening in between the lines, as multiple previous readers interact at the same time.
Confused? Boing Boing has an unboxing video which takes us through the pages of the beautiful package. Check it out below. Read More »
Pumpkins, costumes, candy and horror movies have long been Halloween traditions. One of the newer traditions, over the past few decades at least, is The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror.

To commemorate these incredible episodes, which now have 24th reincarnations, Acme Archives and artist Dave Perillo have collaborated on a poster. It’ll be release November 13 and you can see it below. Read More »
