American Horror Story: Coven went off the rails somewhat, but the great thing about Ryan Murphy‘s FX anthology horror series is that each season is a fresh start. The next season, American Horror Story: Freak Show, will see many of the same cast and crew heading to 1950s Florida, where a “dark entity” emerges.
While Murphy isn’t as secretive as some of his fellow showrunners, he hasn’t said that much about where the new run of episodes might take us. So it’s exciting to get our first glimpse at the cast in costume, including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Michael Chiklis, and so many more. See the new American Horror Story Freak Show poster and teasers after the jump.

This Halloween, audiences are going to have a chance to see Daniel Radcliffe become the devil. The fall holiday is when Alexandre Aja‘s latest film, Horns, hits theaters. Based on a book by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King), Horns tells the story of Ignatius (Radcliffe), a man accused of murdering his girlfriend. In his despair, Ig sprouts horns from his forehead. As the horns continue to grow, everyone in town spills their darkest secrets to Ig as he tries to solve the mystery of what actually happened.
From what we saw at Comic-Con, the film looks like a delicate balance of horror, humor and romance. Now, a new international trailer is out that plays more on that fact. Check out the latest Horns trailer below. Read More »
Is Barry Allen drunk, or just a vigorous self-promoter? In this Flash poster for The CW’s new TV show, the hero is depicted running down a street in Central City. For some reason, he’s running in a zig-zag pattern that occasionally points him backwards. But whatever; the guy is so fast that he’ll still get where he’s going with time to spare.
And The Flash is meant to be fun, after all, so what’s a little time spent running just for fun? Speaking of, this poster is also decorated with a few little easter eggs. Some point to the series’ companion show, Arrow, while others hint at future developments for the series. You’ll need an even more high-res version to pick everything out, but get started via the one below. Read More »

Movie heaven comes to Austin, Texas during the third week of September. Not only is that when Fantastic Fest is happening (much more on that in the coming days) but the fine folks at Mondo are simultaneously hosting their first convention, MondoCon. But no, this isn’t going to be just a place to buy posters. As discussed a few months back, MondoCon will be a gathering for everything a movie fan or collector could desire.
Mondo has just released the full programming line-up, as well as a few small glimpses at the goodies. Among the highlights? A mini-gallery exhibition of work based on The Iron Giant, including that film’s score available on vinyl. The lost score to 2001: A Space Odyssey will be on sale along with a panel discussion. A never-made 1983 U.S. Godzilla film will be revealed through storyboards and concept images. Plus a screening of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with live score, the world premiere of a documentary on the 2000AD comic brand and much more.
And that’s just part of it. Will there be posters? You bet. Lots of surprise posters along with the first Alex Ross Mondo poster. Will there be guests? Tons, including newly annoucned names like Bryan Lee O’Malley, JC Richard and William Stout.
The event takes place September 20-21 in Austin and tickets are still on sale. Below, read the full programming press release. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In today’s Hollywood, the movie poster is an afterthought. Dozens of marketing and advertising executives justify their jobs by demanding everyone’s input be represented and, as a result, anything interesting or provocative is lost. We all remember this, right? And this?
The homogenous nature of modern movie posters is, of course, a generalization. There are some movie posters with artistic merit but the percentage has dropped significantly over the decades. What is definitely true, though, is the iconic posters of the past have all but gone away and, in one case, that’s quite literal.
According to Roger Kastel, the artist who made the unforgettable poster to Steven Spielberg‘s Jaws, his original 20 x 30 inch painting went missing around the time of the film’s release. Read more about the Jaws poster art below.
