If you haven’t decorated your Christmas tree just yet, then you’re a little behind. But that also gives you the opportunity to pick up a couple more ornaments to make your tree the nerdiest one on the block.
Every year Hallmark comes out with some really cool keepsake ornaments that are very well crafted and detailed, especially when it comes to paying tribute to some of your favorite movies and TV shows. And next year there will be three more ornaments with two characters and one ship from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Check them out! Read More »

Kevin Dart is one of my favorite artists, yet we haven’t had too much of a chance to feature him on /Film as he doesn’t do a ton of pop culture artwork. You might remember he did that awesome triptych set of posters for Inception which were available at IMAX screenings of the film, and also some of his beautiful early concept art paintings for Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6.
Dart has an art show at Gallery 1988 East which opens up this Friday night that I wanted to feature on the site even though it doesn’t have any direct connections to movies or television (but if you’ve watched movies like Apollo 13, The Martian or Gravity or any other space film, these are related indirectly). Kevin Dart’s Science & Nature art show will feature prints that focus “on the wonder that is space and our surroundings.” Because we’re all geeks here (right?), I thought I’d post a preview of the space and NASA inspired prints that will be available at the show. Hit the jump to see them now.

We’ve made no secret of our love for Mondo here at /Film, nor of our obsession with Marvel superheroes. So what happens when you put the two of them together? A must-see gallery show called Snikt. Bamf. Thwip: A Celebration of Marvel Comics, that’s what.
As announced last week, the exhibition brings together artists like Tom Whalen, Becky Cloonan, Matt Taylor, and Matthew Woodson, all united by their love of Marvel’s uncanny, mighty, amazing, incredible superheroes. Today, we’ve got a little preview of what’ll be on display. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
We’ve featured plenty of work from artist Matt Ferguson, from his Lord of the Rings poster set to his Star Wars trilogy collection and his art show in Brooklyn this past spring. Now we have one more cool piece to add to his impressive line-up, and it pays tribute to Paul Verhoeven’s contemporary action classic, RoboCop.
See the full Robocop print and find out where you can get one after the jump! Read More »

Up until today, you probably had no reason to go to Omaha, Nebraska. But that will change once you see the new theater the Alamo Drafthouse has just opened in the city of this Great Plains state.
The hip cineplex chain has just opened up a Star Wars movie theater unlike any you’ve seen before, complete with a 10-foot Death Star in the lobby. And yes, that thing’s operational. But that’s just one of the cool design features that makes this theater strong with the Force. See more photos below! Read More »

With the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just two and a half weeks away (!!!), now seems like as good a time as any to look back at the films that got us here.

With Star Wars Battlefront on the shelves as another way of fueling the hype train on track to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans have been doing their fair share of blasting both Rebels and Imperials in the video game world. But one fan wanted to do some blasting with the weight of LEGO in his hands.
Flickr user and Star Wars fan Nick Jensen has recreated a life-size version of the E-11 blaster rifle, which fans will know as the blaster carried by Stormtroopers in the original Star Wars trilogy. They occasionally use the gun to hit their targets, but mostly it’s just to make a lot of noise and flashing red lights. But this looks like quite the deadly piece of LEGO weaponry. Read More »
