One of the best movie-related April Fools gags I can remember was from a few years ago: ThinkGeek’s Star Wars Tauntaun Sleeping Bag. It was a gross, hilarious idea that got so much attention, Lucasfilm actually allowed the company to make and sell the product.
This year, ThinkGeek is back with another batch of inspired movie related items that you’ll either really want because they’re so clever, or laugh at because they’re so mean. Items such as the Batman Family Car Decal above. Check out more below. Read More »

Any time artist Tyler Stout releases a print, it’s an event. When he has his own gallery show, it’s a happening. Friday night in Austin for SXSW, the artist behind such memorable Mondo posters as Akira, the Star Wars trilogy and Kill Bill was on hand for a two-man show with Australian artist Ken Taylor. Stout premiered brand new posters for Drive, Attack the Block and Un Prophete and more, which you can exclusively see below.
We also got to talk to the artist about the new work, what it’s like to exhibit at the gallery, the pressure of popularity and having hundreds of fans camp out on a sidewalk just for a shot to buy one of his posters. Check it all out below. Read More »
Movie stars, directors, producers and writers get the credit, but without concept artists they’d be nowhere. That goes double for an animated feature like The Croods, which is about an isolated family discovering a world of wonder and beauty they never thought imaginable.
The film, featuring the voices of Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke and Cloris Leachman, is out March 22 and it’ll be followed by The Art of the Croods, a hardcover book with over 400 pieces of concept art written by Noela Hueso.
/Film is proud to exclusively debut five piece of Croods concept art from the book, each showing a beautiful new facet of the DreamWorks film. Read More »
Mere hours after Martin Ansin’s Taxi Driver was announced and two days away from a huge gallery show, Mondo has revealed three brand new posters. Two are the third and fourth entries in their Game of Thrones series leading up to the March 31 premiere. The third is the first image from Friday’s Stout/Taylor show: Ken Taylor‘s Beetlejuice.
All the particulars, and full images, are below. Read More »
Destroying New York in movies has become so cliché. Many major disaster movies — from King Kong to The Avengers – features some kind of massive, cataclysmic event taking place in the city. For some people around the world, these big screen visions of the Big Apple are all they know about NYC. That cultural disconnect is the idea behind the latest pop culture art show at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY
The Popular Face of New York is a solo show by UK artist Chris Thornley aka Raid71. He’s created a wide range of screenprints inspired by New York movies, from the destructive (Independence Day, King Kong, Ghostbusters) to the romantic (Woody Allen) and the criminal (Martin Scorsese, The King of New York). It’s a though-provoking, and fun, glimpse at an outsiders perspective on one of the most filmed cites in the world.
The show opens March 15 and runs through March 29. Check out some images below. Read More »
