Star Wars The Last Jedi 8-Bit Trailer

Fans are patiently waiting for a new trailer to satisfy their appetites for more footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Not only have we only see one teaser trailer so far, but we’re going to need something exciting to take our mind off the worrisome production of the Han Solo spin-off that is currently waiting to restart production with Ron Howard behind the camera, replacing the fired duo of Phil Lord & Chris Miller.

Helping to hold us over, we’ve gotten an 8-bit version of the quick trailer (or more accurately a 16-bit trailer) that debuted back in April at Star Wars Celebration, and now we have another interesting recreation of the teaser. New York City-based artist Wahyu Ichwandardi has used an Apple II computer from 1984 to create an 8-bit version of the trailer that is composed of 288 images that were transferred onto 48 individual floppy disks before being put into the video format you can watch below.

Craig Drake Terminator 2

Get ready to say “Hasta la vista, baby” to some of those dollars in your banking account if you’re a fan of artist Craig Drake and James Cameron‘s action-packed sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Hero Complex Gallery has unveiled two new Terminator 2 prints created by Craig Drake, and they’re even officially licensed by StudioCanal. One takes the more traditional approach by having a title and credits while the other just lets the image speak for itself. Unlike most Terminator 2 posters, this one also lets Linda Hamilton shine front and center like the badass she is while Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 character looms behind her.

Check out the Craig Drake Terminator 2 prints below and find out when and where to buy them today.

1966 Batman Batcave Sculpture

Next month, the /Film crew will be making their annual trip to San Diego Comic-Con. Even though we’ll be waiting in long lines to make sure we can cover the biggest panels at the convention and get all the latest news about upcoming movies and all our favorite TV shows, we also like to wander the show floor to see what kind of cool stuff we can get our hands on. There are plenty of exclusives only available at SDCC, but thankfully, there are some you can get online from the comfort of your own home.

Factory Entertainment has revealed one of their own 2017 San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, and it’s pretty damn impressive. The collectible company has a desktop sculpture of the Batcave from the classic Batman TV series from 1966, and it even rotates from the incognito mountainside where the Batmobile enters to reveal the inside of the Caped Crusader’s secret lair.

The Big Sick Alamo Drafthouse

Starting this weekend, the acclaimed Sundance hit The Big Sick is opening in theaters in New York and Los Angeles. That might be frustrating for people who live in the rest of the country, but sadly, that’s how the indie release pattern works, even when the studio who picked up the movie is Amazon and they can send you pretty much any movie you want in two days. But that’s not important right now.

What’s important is that people in those two major cities go see The Big Sick, because that helps determine how big of a wide  release the movie gets when it expands into more theaters in the coming weeks. One place you should seek out The Big Sick, if you’re lucky enough to have one near you, is at the Alamo Drafthouse. The theater chain has unveiled a special Pakistani menu inspired by the relationship between comedian Kumail Nanjiani and his real life wife Emily V. Gordon, marking the first time they’ve ever worked with the movie’s creators to plan a themed menu.

Batman Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray

Following the release of Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989 and the sequel Batman Returns in 1992, Warner Bros. Pictures tried their hand at bringing the animated version of The Dark Knight to theaters with Batman: Mask of the Phantasm on Christmas Day in 1993.

As a continuation of Batman: The Animated Series, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year like Batman Returns, the animated film didn’t spark much interest at the box office, pulling in only $5.6 million in its entire domestic run. Still, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has become a favorite among Batman fans, especially with all the love that they have for the animated series that inspired it.

For years, fans have wanted to get their hands on Batman: Mask of the Phantasm in high definition, but it hadn’t been made available. That will change later this year though as Warner Archive has just announced the animated movie will be releases on Blu-ray this summer.

Sphero Spider-Man

Ever since Sphero made a splash with the interactive BB-8 droid toy that arrived before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, they’ve become a household name in cool, albeit pricey, electronic toys. Just recently they unveiled their interactive Lightning McQueen remote controlled car, and now they have a Spider-Man: Homecoming inspired gizmo too.

The Sphero Spider-Man toy is an interactive little gadget that talks to you and reacts to your voice commands. You can ask Spidey to tell you a joke, ask trivia questions, give you the time, guard your room, wake you up and more. Beyond those basic capabilities, Spidey will also go on missions, play games, tell stories and do other things that will change how he interacts with you as time goes on.

Stranger Things action figures

Funko may be best known for their Pop! Vinyl toy line, but now the company has created a batch of Stranger Things action figures based on popular characters from the supernatural Netflix series. After taking a look at these figures, I’m guessing collectors who love the show would be willing to dive into the Upside Down in order to get their hands on these things.

Shaun of the Dead Print

With the release of Baby Driver just over a couple weeks away, Mondo wanted to pay tribute to Edgar Wright‘s breakthrough feature film Shaun of the Dead.

The horror comedy is a near-perfect film that is expertly shot, meticulously written, and absolutely hilarious. The film marks Edgar Wright’s first feature collaboration with Simon Pegg, who takes the spotlight in Mondo’s outstanding new print by artist Rich Kelly which has a sparing but stylish use of red.

Mondo Edge of Tomorrow Vinyl

Mondo previously gave the Tom Cruise led sci-fi flick Oblivion a special vinyl soundtrack, because M83’s score for the film was one of the best of the past decade, along with Daft Punk’s score for TRON Legacy. Now they’re giving the same treatment to Tom Cruise’s superior sci-fi action flick directed by Doug Liman the year after.

Edge of Tomorrow, or Live. Die. Repeat. as it came to be known on home video, is getting a collectible vinyl soundtrack release today, and it’ll make a great addition to your vinyl collection, especially if you love colored vinyl. Read More »
