There’s a very fine line between making a poster that’s artistic and beautiful, but also recognizable as something from a movie. If you go too far one way, it might be obscure. The other way? A lazy, photoshop mashup. It’s a true talent to be able to ride that line, and the latest piece by Grey Matter Art shows that talent.
The company has been releasing posters for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and the latest one is by Grzegorz Domaradzki, aka Gabz. He goes the untraditional route of doing something kind of traditional – a huge title logo – but gives it his own spin with amazing detail within that space. The poster goes on sale Thursday in three different editions. Read more about it below. Read More »
Just when everyone was busy talking or bitching about Kylo Ren’s lightsaber in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Star Wars Rebels team jumped on board with a strange design of their own. They introduced Ezra’s lightsaber, which looks like a staple gun and combines a blaster with a lightsaber. Because it wasn’t in theaters, this unique new Star Wars weapon didn’t creator the fervor of its cross-guarded counterpart, but it was still a radical departure from what Star Wars fans expect from the series’ elegant weapons.
At Star Wars Celebration, we spoke with Rebels producer Dave Filoni and since he wasn’t giving up many details on season 2, we asked about Ezra’s saber. Where did the idea come from? How was it designed? What was the purpose and was it hard getting it approved by the Lucasfilm Story Group? Read everything Filoni had to say about the Ezra lightsaber below. Read More »
If you’ve been to a convention, odds are you spent some time drooling at a Sideshow Collectibles booth. Their large convention space consists of glass cases filled with the kind of high-end collectibles and figures most of us only dream of owning. Last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration was no different. Sideshow had a beautiful booth filled with goregeous merchandise. However, one big different this time was a huge selection of R2-D2’s that had been customized by various artists.
The exhibit was called R2-Me2 and consisted of efforts from almost 100 different artists – including composer Michael Giacchino – each using R2-D2 as a canvas for various interpretation of the character. Below, see a few our of favorite R2-Me2 images. Read More »

Some pretty big names attended Star Wars Celebration this weekend — including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and J.J. Abrams — but the real belle of the ball (no pun intended) was BB-8. The droid’s surprise appearance at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel was all the more surprising because up until this point, many fans had assumed he was a CG creation.
But BB-8 is real, at least in the sense that he is a practical effect rather than a CG one. And better yet, he’s one you can (mostly) replicate at home. Find out how to make your own BB-8 after the jump. Read More »

Walt Disney and his theme parks exist in the world of Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland. That’s a secret the cast and crew kept for a long time but in the past few videos and trailers, it’s become abundantly clear. The question then becomes, how much of an influence was Walt on this movie, which is named after something he first created in the 1950? A few new featurettes give some tantalizing teases at these connections alongside glimpses of a few other things from the film.
Plus, a new novel serves as a prequel to Tomorrowland and offers even more context. Find out more about the Tomorrowland Walt Disney connections below. Read More »
