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 »
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.

Fernando Meirelles‘ City of God is one of those movies you can constantly turn people onto. When it was released in 2002, it opened to incredible acclaim but many people missed it simply because it’s a foreign language film. Now, if ever asked for a movie recommendation, City of God is at the top of the list.
That interesting cultural niche between critical acclaim, mainstream success and cult classic is why the brand new company, FAMP Art, chose the film to kick off its new endeavor. They’re a New York based screen print company who plan to specialize in smaller films that rarely get attention, both from the mainstream and in the art world. Their first print is by UK artist Dan Norris, who took the visceral visuals of City of God and condensed them down into a single, striking image. Below, check out our exclusive debut of the first FAMP Art City of God poster. Read More »

It’s been well established by now that the whole “humans use only 10% of their brains” thing is a myth. People use 100% of their brains, no matter what Lucy and Limitless try to tell you.
But that only goes for real people. When it comes to fictional people, we can think of a few that probably aren’t running on full capacity. Like, for example, Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas. A new pair of Dumb and Dumber To posters give them the Lucy treatment, to ironically ingenious effect. Check ‘em out after the jump.
