Chris Pratt Jurassic World

In all his interviews discussing Jurassic World, star Chris Pratt has said over and over again how much he loves the franchise. He’s called it his generation’s Star Wars and seems genuinely stoked to be part of the fourth installment in the franchise.

What Pratt may or may not remember is on the Parks and Recreation Season 2 DVD Box Set, he filmed a little behind the scenes video in which he joked about Steven Spielberg casting him in the fourth Jurassic Park. That was in 2009 or 2010, long before anyone was cast or a full script was in existence. It eventually came true. Check out the Chris Pratt Jurassic World prediction video below. Read More »

guardians of the galaxy mistake

As Big Two superheroes go, the Guardians of the Galaxy are a pretty obscure bunch. So much so, even the trailers for the movie poke fun at that fact. Still, you’d think they’d be pretty well known now, what with a $100+ million budget and the power of the Marvel Studios marketing machine to back them up.

And yet, that didn’t stop a few cinemas from getting these Guardians mixed up with a different ragtag group of world-saving Guardians. According to reports, some theatergoers bought tickets to Guardians of the Galaxy last night… only to be treated to a screening of Rise of the Guardians instead. Hit the jump to learn how it all went down.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Poster header 2

Rob Jones Grief header

While you might not know the name Rob Jones you know his work. I guarantee it. Jones is a creative director for Mondo, which means he works with each and every artist who releases a poster and helps them achieve the best vision imaginable. While a piece by Tyler Stout or Olly Moss was done by them, Jones helped steer them in a specific direction from a very early stage. You could say every Mondo poster is born of Jones’ DNA.

In addition to that, Jones is quite the accomplished artist himself. He’s done dozens of famous album covers, gig posters, movie posters and in 2011 won an Grammy for designing a box set for The White Stripes. Later this week, he’s presenting an ambitious new solo show called “Grief,” comprised of 100 self portraits offering different takes on Charlie Brown. Yes, from the Peanuts Charlie Brown. It open July 17 at Galerie F in Chicago, Illinois.

Below, we’ve got several exclusive, pop culture inspired pieces from the show including detailed descriptions of the personal interpretations behind each from Jones himself. It’s a funny, but sometimes frightening, window into one of the most influential eyes in pop culture art today. Read More »

720-Hour Long Movie

Three years ago Danish artist collective Superflex created Modern Times Forever, a 240-hour film which broke the record for the longest movie of all time. Well if a 10-day long movie wasn’t enough, Swedish artist Anders Weberg is hoping to break that record with his 720-hour long movie, Ambiancé. That’s right, a movie with a running time of 30 straight days — and you thought Transformers: Age of Extinction felt long? Here is hoe Weberg describes the film:

In the piece Ambiancé space and time is intertwined into a surreal dream-like journey beyond places and is an abstract nonlinear narrative summary of the artist’s time spent with the moving image. A sort of memoir movie . (Film memoir ) . This in the visual expression that is constantly characterized the work throughout the artists career.

Weberg says this teaser trailer “is supposed to convey the mood from the full film.” You can watch the first “short teaser trailer” embedded after the jump.
