There’s little argument that The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars film. Nevertheless, it’s always surprising it achieves so much with so little. The story is incredibly compact, following our heroes to only three primary locations. The film has a reputation as a sprawling sci-fi epic, but the fact that it is not actually that sprawling is part of what makes it so good.
Those locations – Hoth, Dagobah and Cloud City – have become some of the signature vistas in the Star Wars universe and it’s always nice to see how artists interpret them. One of the best artists at capturing those sprawling landscapes is JC Richard, and /Film is proud to exclusively reveal his latest print. It’s called The Impossible and goes on sale Friday April 10. See images and get more info on the JC Richard Empire Strikes Back poster below. Read More »

There’s no arguing Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws is a masterpiece. An infinitely rewatchable thriller that’s quotable, entertaining and influential. One of the many places you see that influence today is the pop culture art world. Jaws is regularly one of the most reimagined properties out there. There have been full art shows dedicated to the film as well as innumerable one off pieces here and there. And with each subsequent poster released, the artists seem to be inspired to top one another.
Which leads us to the latest Jaws print by Kevin M. Wilson aka Ape Meets Girl. He took the intense film and boiled it down into a serene landscape showing Amity Island in its before, and after, settings. See the full Ape Meets Girl Jaws posters below. Read More »
Max Dalton is an artist we’ve featured on /Film numerous times. He’s done incredible work based on the films of Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, The Coen Brothers and many others. His style is deceptively simple, but by somehow perfectly evokes a quirky tone that’s either perfectly in line with filmmakers like those, or delightfully polarized from others.
Dalton’s first solo show is called On A Mission From God and it opens at 6 p.m. April 4 at Spoke Art in San Francisco. It consists of a wide variety of pop culture influenced art from a small new series called “Greatest Moments in Film,” more traditions limited edition prints brimming with hilarious and unique detail, and even homemade toys and games. Have you ever wanted to play Where’s Waldo, but in the world of Breaking Bad? How about have a poster of your favorite Seinfeld quotes? What would a Groundhog Day board game be like? All of that and more is part of this exhibit.
Below, read more about the first Max Dalton solo show and see a bunch of art from it including several pieces exclusive to /Film. Read More »
