This December will mark the official 25th anniversary of Edward Scissorhands, easily one of the best films director Tim Burton has ever made. It represents a fond memory of a time when the filmmaker was still cooking up original stories for the big screen.
To honor this milestone anniversary, Fox Home Entertainment has a restored, special edition Blu-Ray hitting shelves in October. That’s a few months away, but it will be available for pre-order at Comic-Con this week, along with a limited edition lithograph created by Gallery 1988 artist Mark Englert. It’s a pretty wonderfil piece of work that you can see in full after the jump along with details on the Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary Blu-Ray. Read More »

Each year the Telluride Film Festival commissions an artist to create a poster for the event. We usually don’t feature the posters on the site because often they are more on the experimental side of things (although, Pixar’s Ralph Eggleston created the fantastic 2010 poster).
But we are featuring the 2015 Telluride Film Festival poster because its beautiful, and it was created by Belgian artist Laurent Durieux, an artist we’ve featured many times over the years on /Film. I personally have Durieux’s Back to the Future 2, Metropolis and Peter Pan posters on my walls. Check out Durieux’s Telluride Film Festival poster in full, after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Since Jurassic World got everybody talking about Jurassic Park all over again, we’ve seen some pretty cool custom LEGO creations hit the web, hoping to one day become real sets. There’s an awesome LEGO version of the visitor center from the first movie we featured, and sets for the iconic Ford Explorer and new Indominus Rex from Jurassic World too.
But since these sets aren’t always easy to get approved, sometimes because of their lack of wide appeal to a variety of LEGO consumers, other times because of licensing or potential pricing, one LEGO builder has created a microscale Jurassic Park LEGO set that could be affordable and appealing. Check out the mini Jurassic Park LEGO set below! Read More »

When Comic-Con comes around each year, not only is there an overwhelming rush of blockbuster news, but there’s also a huge drain on our wallets. The convention has a slew of collectibles, toys, art, comics and plenty of other nerdy goods that would look great on our walls and shelves, and we’ve got another round of good stuff to spend your money on.
Gallery 1988, who has been responsible for some fantastic pop culture art exhibitions (like their recent tribute to Clue on its 30th anniversary), will be at Comic-Con next week, and they’ve just unveiled some of the exclusives that they’ll have on sale. Some of the pieces pay tribute to Star Wars, Mad Max, Marvel, Aliens and more. Check out the Gallery 1988 Comic-Con 2015 exclusives below! Read More »

Just about everyone in the known world loves Back to the Future, but one town in Kansas may have even the most fervent fans beat. The City of Augusta has decided to officially rename itself “Hill Valley” in honor of the film’s 30th anniversary.
Granted, it’s a temporary switch. Hill Valley will revert to its original name of Augusta after 24 hours. Still, how many Back to the Future fans do you know who would be willing to legally change their names to show their love? More about the Back to the Future Hill Valley name change after the jump.
