Tyler Stout is one of the most popular poster artists out there today but, in 2014, he was relatively quiet. Kind of like space. Which leads us to his first poster of 2015, Ridley Scott‘s Alien.
The poster was revealed Wednesday night at a special screening of Alien at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas and the remaining posters will go on sale Friday January 30 at a random time. See the full images of the Tyler Stout Alien poster below. Read More »
Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.
That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »

Earlier today, we reported that Nicolas Cage had signed on for Army of One, about an American construction worker who took it upon himself to hunt down Osama bin Laden. The Larry Charles-directed satire is based on an extensive 2010 profile of Larry Faulkner from GQ, but Faulkner came to the attention of the media months before that piece ever ran.
The “Rocky Mountain Rambo” first made headlines in June 2010 when he was arrested in Pakistan. Armed with a sword, a dagger, and a pistol, he claimed to be searching for bin Laden in the mountains along the Afghan border. In the weeks and months that followed, he made the rounds on the publicity circuit — including a stop at Late Show With David Letterman. Watch the Larry Faulkner David Letterman interview after the jump. Read More »

DC almost beat Marvel to the punch. Years ago, DC and Warner Bros. had recruited a then cult writer named Joss Whedon to write a script for a Wonder Woman movie. Unfortunately, the film didn’t get made.
Years later, Joss Whedon went on to direct the biggest superhero movie of all time, The Avengers, and Warner Bros. is again developing a Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot and directed by Michelle MacLaren. But fans still like to imagine what Whedon’s Wonder Woman may have been and now, we have a small glimpse.
A promotional poster for the would-be movie was available at San Diego Comic-Con 2005 has now made it on eBay. It’s available along with artist Adam Hughes‘ original drawing, making the set a very exciting and rare thing. Below, check out both pieces of Joss Whedon Wonder Woman art work. Read More »

Ernie Cline is reportedly writing a Ready Player One sequel. Let that sink in while I give you some context.
A few weeks back, there were lots of rumors about Warner Bros. going out to top notch directors after reading the latest draft to Ready Player One. Cline’s book was released in 2011 but sold its movie rights even before that. Since then, several writers have been hired to crack the story – which involves a massive online world and a pop-culture infused race to win billions – but nothing quite stuck. Then Zak Penn took over and, suddenly, names like Christopher Nolan and Peter Jackson were being thrown around. It was a huge step.
Since then, we haven’t heard much about the Ready Player One movie. So, in the meantime, I went back and read the book for a second time. The first time I read it, I finished it in 24 hours because I couldn’t put it down. The second time, even though I’d already read it, it took me all of 4 days to finish. Cline’s huge imagination and pop culture vocabulary create a story that’s both wholly original yet totally composed of the tattered remnants of our childhoods. It’s just a wonderful, exciting, vibrant and awesome book.
Since releasing Ready Player One, Cline has been working on a mysterious new book called Armada, which is out later this year. Now, in a very surprising move, he’s apparently also working on a Ready Player One sequel. Read more about it below. Read More »
