Gremlins poster easter egg

The poster for Joe Dante‘s Gremlins is classic. I use to even have a gigantic french version of the one-sheet on my wall in my old /Film office.

Can you see it? Uncover the Gremlins poster easter egg now, after the jump.

Dennis Lehane has been behind some of the best mysteries and thrillers of the past several years, as the author of Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, and Shutter Island. But this fall’s The Drop marks his first time actually adapting his own work for the screen.

When the place is robbed, the pair find themselves at the center of events which spin out of their control. Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts also star.

Quidditch documentary

The FIFA World Cup isn’t without its charms, but any Harry Potter fan worth his weight in Galleons knows that Muggle soccer has nothing on Quidditch. Soon, the rest of the world may come to realize that as well, thanks to a new documentary.

Directed by Farzad Sangari, Mudbloods follows the UCLA Quidditch team on their journey to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City. I realize that sentence may sound completely absurd if you’re not familiar with the Harry Potter fandom, but trust me, it’s a real thing.

borgman poster art

We’ve loved the direction that Drafthouse Films has taken in bringing the film Borgman to audiences. The trailer was terrific, and the key poster art is also great. The poster gets right to some of the important ideas in the film in a way that is enticing and mysterious without being blatantly overt. A conversation with Drafthouse led to the idea of doing a breakdown of the design process for that key art, which was created by artist Brandon Schaefer.

Initially we were going to set up an interview with Schaefer. Before that happened, however, he wrote up a description of his own design process. And, frankly, it is a lot better than any interview might have been. So what follows is essentially a guest post by Schaefer, in which he gives a full account of the process of creating the Borgman poster art. Read More »
