matt ferguson infinity war posters

We’ve been covering the pop culture artwork of UK-based artist Matt Ferguson for more than half a decade at this point and are always impressed, but this might be his best piece yet.

A pentaptych of five interconnected posters for Avengers: Infinity War which will be released exclusively through Odeon Cinemas. So if you’re seeing this event film at Odeon, you might walk home with one of these posters. But what does one poster do for you? You need to collect all five to make for the best possible display. So I guess you’ll just have to see Infinity War five times in the movie theater! And thus Odeon’s evil plan has worked.

Below, check out the Matt Ferguson Infinity War poster in full and also check out some detailed close-ups.

Thanos origin

Update: Turns out io9 was misinformed on this one. The publisher of this novel originally told them the novel was part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon, but they’ve since reached out to reveal that it’s not actually canonical. Our original story follows.

Every studio in Hollywood has spent years chasing Marvel Studios’ success with shared universes, but now the people running the Marvel Cinematic Universe are looking elsewhere for some inspiration of their own. The MCU is taking a page from the Star Wars playbook and branching out into canonical novels, and a new report says that the first will be a Thanos origin story that details the rise of The Avengers’ most dangerous foe.

Jurassic Park LEGO Set

Since the Jurassic Park franchise was reinvigorated with the legacy-quel Jurassic World in 2015, the merchandise for the action adventure film series featuring hungry dinosaurs has been ramped up to its full potential. There are plenty of action figures, t-shirts, stuffed dinosaurs, video games and much more to cash in on the Jurassic Park name. However, not much attention has been paid to bringing the original Jurassic Park to life in merchandise form again, but LEGO is about to change that.

A new Jurassic Park LEGO set will be available for purchase next week, and it allows fans to recreate several iconic scenes fro Steven Spielberg’s original movie. More specifically, it brings to life the third act chase sequence with a pack of velociraptors chasing down Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and John Hammond’s grandchildren Lex (Ariana Richards) and Tim (Joseph Mazzello).

Gallery 1988 30 Years Later

Every year, Gallery 1988 takes an opportunity to look back 30 years by featuring pop culture artwork inspired by the movies that came out three decades previously. This year it just so happens that the flashback is the same year of their namesake: 1988.

The entire gallery of pieces from the Gallery 1988 30 Years Later art show is available, and it features artwork from movies such as Beetlejuice, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Child’s Play, Die Hard, The Land Before Time, Twins, Bloodsport, Big, Coming to America, The Naked Gun and more.

Gallery 1988 30 Years Later Art Gallery

As you can see, there’s far more representation for Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Beetlejuice, two of the most popular movies of the year. But there’s plenty of love for some of the other hits of the year as well. Personally, I wish that the Best Picture winning Rain Man was featured in this collection, but maybe that’s just me.

Featured artists for this show include Xander Lee, Shian Ng, Simon Delart, Nicholas Moegly, Matthew Lineham, Josh Eckert, John Barry Ballaran, Jason Yang, James Loram, Hans Woody, Fiona McCall, Erin Hunting, Danny Haas, Daniel Clark, Dan Nash, Chris McGuire, Catherine Moor, Bruce White and many more.

This is just a sample of our favorite pieces from the new art show. You can check out a bunch more pieces available, including some sculptures and originals, over at the Gallery 1988 shop. Some of the prints are already sold out, but there are plenty of others with larger edition sizes for you to pick up.
