Unused Jurassic Park Posters Designed By John Alvin

Most people know and cite Drew Struzan as the greatest movie poster illustrator of all time, but if there were a list of the top few guys, John Alvin would also be up there. Alvin is responsible for over 100 movie posters, some of which have become iconic imagery that we imagine when we think of the classic movies of the last 4 decades. His career began with Mel Brooks’ 1974 film Blazing Saddles. His posters include E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Blade Runner, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, The Color Purple, Gremlins and the anniversary posters for Star Wars. Alvin’s last work was on Disney’s Enchanted, released a year before his death after suffering a bout of myocardial infarction.

The Art of John Alvin will be released on August 26th 2014, a retrospective collection of his finest movie poster work, along with previously unseen comprehensives and in progress sketches and commentary from Alvin’s widow. To promote the book, the publisher has released online Alvin’s unused Jurassic Park posters designed for the original Steven Spielberg film. After the jump we’ve collected the best of over two dozen new images released of unused Jurassic Park posters concepts.

The Hunger Games Catching Fire - Jeffrey Wright as Beetee

HBO is quickly filling slots on its upcoming sci-fi show Westworld with some top end talent. The show, produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, Bryan Burk and writers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, is based on the 1973 film written and directed by Michael Crichton. It’s about robots at a theme park that run amok, an idea the author evolved two decades later for Jurassic Park.

Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood were already cast as two of the show’s leads and now six more actors have joined. Best known among them are Jeffrey Wright (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Rodrigo Santoro (300) along with Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.

Hot on the heels of the first trailer, the viral marketing for the Fall’s biggest film is in full swing. That film, of course, is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. The first spoils of the viral hunt are a slew of new characters posters. These posters show several of the main characters in garb from District 13. That’ the hidden, run-down headquarters of the rebellion against the Capitol. In this batch, actors such as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin and Woody Harrelson get their own posters. Check out new Hunger Games Mockingjay posters below. Read More »

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Buckbeak and Harry - fantastic beasts movies
Today, Warner Bros. took a machine gun to the movie release calendar and shot flags into 11 dates spread over the next six and a half years. Germain has written about the majority of those dates, which are for big DC Comic book superhero movies. I thought it was important to focus on the other two dates, which are both marked as “Untitled WB Event Film”. But we think we know what these dates might be — more Harry Potter movies. Lets look closer at the possible Fantastic Beasts movies after the jump.

Left Behind trailer

If you’ve been thinking that HBO’s The Leftovers could do with a little more Nicolas Cage, boy are you in luck. Left Behind stars Cage as pilot Rayford Steele, who fails to make the cut when the Rapture hits the Earth. Cue the Apocalypse.

This actually the second cinematic adaptation of the book by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The last one was released in 2000 as a straight-to-DVD film starring Kirk Cameron. At least Cage is a step up from that. Hit the jump for more details.
