Legendary poster artist Drew Struzan is the best kind of retired. He’s retired, unless he feels like working. So though the artist is officially off the books, he’s released a few posters for Mondo in the past few years. He did a poster for How to Train Your Dragon 2, and if rumors are correct he might be doing something for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. His latest poster is for an upcoming documentary called Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World, which will premiere later this month at the Slamdance Film Festival. It’s the tale behind the Make-A-Wish story that captured the world.
Below, check out the full poster and watch a new behind the scenes video about Batkid Begins. Read More »

Inherent Vice is a big movie with a lot of moving parts. Even though it cuts out a lot of material from the novel by Thomas Pynchon, the film still has a wealth of characters with odd names, many of whom are given pretty breezy introductions. But a set of Inherent Vice character posters and brief video introductions for many of the major characters might help you sort people out ahead of time.
The downside is that these video intros give up a few of the film’s good jokes (but not all of them by any means). The upside is that these videos feature a bunch of footage that isn’t in the film, not that most people will have a chance to know which is which until after this Friday. Read More »

The first trailer for Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man is out Tuesday evening. Just as a reminder, Marvel has released the first poster. The Ant-Man poster goes with the “ant” angle: it’s an empty white field, with a teeny-tiny image of the character at the center. While the poster doesn’t exactly work online, I can’t imagine seeing this poster in a movie theater and not stopping to take notice. It’s a smart piece of marketing. See the first Ant-Man poster below. Read More »
Raiders of the Lost Art, Jaws, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters, Die Hard – these are some of the most popular films ever made. They also have some of the most recognizable posters of all time. So, as an artist, attempting to make a poster for one is no easy feat. Do you just put everyone’s face in the frame? Maybe you try to sum up the story with one image? The options are endless, and sometimes not that appealing.
Artist Anthony Petrie has quietly been perfecting a unique, very cool way to approach well-known films. Over the past year or so, he’s been making posters for iconic movies that look like charts or maps of each movie. So, for example, he did Ghostbusters as a New York City subway map, filled with references. Die Hard became a set of Nakatomi Tower blueprints and Aliens became a readout on a motion tracker. Each poster represent these amazing movies in subtle ways, specific to the movie, without going overboard on character likenesses. They showed something more artistic and fun.
January 9 at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles, Petrie is presenting a whole new exhibit of new work in that mode. It’s called Charts, and he’s doing maps for some of the movies mentioned above and many more. Below, check out just a few of the Anthony Petrie Gallery 1988 Charts including an exclusive from a galaxy far, far away. Read More »
