Guardians of the Galaxy fans were thrilled when Marvel finally announced in October that a dancing baby Groot toy would be out in time for Christmas. At the same time, though, it was hard not to wonder why it had taken Marvel/Disney so damn long. Wouldn’t the obvious move have been to have the merch ready so audiences could fork over their money the minute they walked out of the theater? Was it really possible they had no idea the film would inspire such demand?
According to director James Gunn, there’s actually a very good reason why a dancing baby Groot toy wasn’t ready earlier. Read his explanation after the jump, and then decide for yourself whether it justifies all the long, lonely weeks we’ve spent without a dancing baby Groot toy to cheer us up.

There are few things cooler than people turning Back to the Future in reality. Be it a Hoverboard, pair of Nikes or Lego creation, fans of the trilogy love to get inspired to own a piece of the film.
In 2011, a video hit YouTube of a fan who had created an actual flying DeLorean from Back to the Future. Now, it’s on a much smaller scale, and they’re using four fans, but it’s a pretty excellent creation anyway. Check out the video below. Read More »

Over the years, Lego has released sets built around all sorts of beloved geek properties, including Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and the Marvel and DC universes. But their latest may prove a bit more divisive.
Lego has just announced they’ll release a set based on The Big Bang Theory, a CBS sitcom centered around six nerdy scientists and their one non-nerdy, non-scientist friend. Well, at least Leonard and Sheldon are bound to be happy, or would be if they were real. Hit the jump for more on the Big Bang Theory Lego set.

Hard to believe it’s been five years since Spoke Art kicked off their Wes Anderson inspired art show Bad Dads. In that time, Anderson has made two new films, Moonrise Kingdom in 2012 and The Grand Budapest Hotel earlier this year. That means that more than 80 artists tasked with making art based on any Wes Anderson film had a new option to draw from this year.
So yes, you’ll see a good amount of Grand Budapest Hotel art at the exhibit, which is now on display in San Francisco as well as online. But you’ll get all of Anderson’s other movies too. As always, it’s an eclectic and awesome collection of art that Anderson himself will surely approve of. In fact, he already has.
Below, see just a small sampling of the work in the fifth annual Bad Dads Wes Anderson art show. Read More »
We’ve featured artist Joshua Budich many times in the past few years on /Film. I even own Budich’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off poster from Gallery 1988. To celebrate the DVD/iTunes release of Wish I Was Here, filmmaker/actor Zach Braff (who seems to follow the pop culture print scene) commissioned Budich to create a limited edition poster print for the film. Joshua Budich’s Wish I Was Here poster print is now available, find out more after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Tyler Stout’s Star Wars Trilogy is one of the most highly collectible poster sets on the market. Each of the three posters in the set is classic Stout, combining almost every single character, setting and piece of iconic imagery from the film in one single image.
Artist Jacob Bills is obviously a fan, but he’s also a fan of Family Guy. Over the past few years, Family Guy parodied Star Wars with their specials Blue Harvest, Something Something Something Dark Side and It’s a Trap. Bills put all those pieces together and parodied the Tyler Stout posters by filling them in with images from the Family Guy episodes. The result has to be seen to be believed. Check out the Family Guy Star Wars posters below. Read More »
