Say what you want about Star Trek Into Darkness, but it’s had a lot of posters. Teaser posters, IMAX posters, character posters, the print campaign for the J.J. Abrams sequel has been incredibly extensive and diverse. Star Trek is such a vivid property, however, that there’s always room to go further.
One website brought together several up and coming pop artists to reinterpret the film with their own unique style. The results range from minimalistic and eye catching, to exaggerated and exciting. Others are realistic and lyrical. It’s a cornucopia of Trekkie goodness. Check them out below. Read More »
There’s just something exciting about seeing a giant robot kick ass. Growing up in the ’80s, cartoons like Transformers and Voltron were fan favorites because of that very idea. Long before that, Godzilla and the Toho crew fought plenty of giant mechs, and the formula has been exploited in anime, live action television and some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters. In projects like Evangelion, Power Rangers, and Pacific Rim, big robots kicking ass is a long-standing tradition.
The Acid Free Gallery in Philadelphia, PA is putting that fact to good use at the upcoming Wizard World ComiCon Philadelphia taking place May 30th through June 2nd. They’ve employed four of the top posters artists working today: Laurent Durieux, Tom Whalen, Kevin Tong and Jesse Philips to make exclusive, robot themed, posters for the event. There’s Voltron, Starscream, Soundwave and the Dinobots. Check them out below. Read More »
This month, Paul Thomas Anderson is set to start filming his seventh feature film, Inherent Vice. For fans of the generally shy director, that’s reason enough to celebrate.

Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love and There Will Be Blood all are getting brand new posters this week, from a variety of artists, and you can check them out below. Read More »
Monster fans, comic fans and art fans are likely familar with the name Bernie Wrightson. If you aren’t, here’s the skinny. Wrightson is an award-winning illustrator well-known for his work on comics like House of Secrets and Swamp Thing. Yet the thing for which he’s best known may be Frankenstein. In the Eighties, Wrightson created Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein, a seminal work in monster pop culture retelling Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in comic book form. Since then, it’s been printed and reprinted by various companies. Recently, Wrightson began to turn the images into limited edition screen prints.
The first two of those screenprints sold out fairly quickly. To try and keep fans happy (and stress-free) Nakatomi Inc. will be providing 175 subscriptions to the next five prints in Wrightson’s series. This will also include some exclusives, which you can exclusively see below. Read More »
Describing the style of artist Laurent Durieux is challenging. It’s mechanical, but lyrical. Rigid, but whimsical, and still realistic. This interesting cross-section of visual cues makes his work perfect for so many different properties, from The Wizard of Oz or Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, to Buck Rodgers and Jaws.
We’re proud to exclusively debut Durieux’s latest piece, based on the classic J.M. Barrie book Peter and Wendy. You probably know it better as Peter Pan. The Hero Complex Gallery has collaborated with the artist for their next exhibit, Arch Enemies on May 24 and have decided to release this print on a timed basis ahead of the show.
The print is on sale now for a limited time. Find out more about it below. Read More »
From black lights to best friends, Brooklyn’s Bottleneck Gallery is getting sentimental for their next pop culture art exhibit. It’s called I Love You, Man and is focused on friendships that are prevalent in film or television. Some examples: The Channel 4 News Team in Anchorman, the Ghostbusters, Ferris and Cameron in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Bill and Ted, The Boondock Saints, The Three Amigos, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid or Donnie and the Rabbit in Donnie Darko. Obviously, it’s a theme the gallery allowed to be twisted ever so slightly, but if you’ve ever dreamt of an Encino Man print, this is the show for you.
“I Love You, Man” opens at 7 p.m. Friday May 10 and will remain on display through May 26 at the gallery, which is in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. Check out a nice, big sampling from the show below. Read More »
