While AMC’s The Walking Dead continues to grab headlines left and right as it casts strong actors as frightening villains and riles fans up with wacky plot twists and big developments, Fear the Walking Dead has just been kind of sitting there. The first season of the spin-off, which turns back to the clock to the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse and takes place on a separate coast entirely, received mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. Every joy came coupled with a frustration, which really is the Walking Dead experience in a nutshell.
With Fear the Walking Dead returning next month, AMC has released new key art that seemingly teases the focus of the new season. Yep, it’s time explore the zombie apocalypse from a boat.

Not only are Alamo Drafthouse theaters known for being spectacular places to see all sorts of great films from today and years past, but they also allow you to toss back a cold one while watching them. And when Richard Linklater‘s latest film, Everybody Wants Some, debuts at SXSW next week, it will be followed in a few weeks by the movie’s own official beer fro Austin Beerworks.
If there’s one movie that deserves to have its own beer, it’s the spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, which brings us a story about college life in 1980. But if you’re not of age to drink, or you just hate beer, there’s also a cool new Mondo poster for the movie that has just been unveiled in conjunction with the forthcoming Richard Linklater gallery show.
Find out where and when you can get the Everybody Wants Some beer and see the Mondo poster for the movie below. Read More »
Paramount Pictures and IMAX have given us the opportunity to debut the IMAX illustrated poster for 10 Cloverfield Lane created by a UK artist Kevin M Wilson, who goes by the pseudonym Ape Meets Girl. We’ve featured his work many times in the past on /Film; you might remember his Jaws, Back to the Future, WALL-E, Peter Pan or Incredibles posters. His latest is for the J.J. Abrams-produced, Dan Trachtenberg-directed thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, which hits theaters nationwide on March 11th, 2016. Hit the jump to see the Ape Meets Girl 10 Cloverfield Lane poster and read my brief chat with the artist. How many hidden Easter eggs can you spot in the art?

I haven’t been shy about lavishing praise on High-Rise, the latest piece of deranged and extraordinary madness from director Ben Wheatley, but I also haven’t spared the caution. This film isn’t going to be for everyone, but for a select group of adventurous movie fans, it’s going to be one of the best absolute best films you experience in 2016.
Because the film itself has proven so divisive, much of the marketing has focused on the one thing everyone can agree on: the stellar cast. A new batch of posters have arrived, showing off stars Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Jeremy Irons. But since this is High-Rise, these character posters are just a little skewed.

The Lonely Island movie was originally titled Top Secret Untitled Lonely Island Movie, but unfortunately, that title for this summer’s comedy is no more.

The early buzz on Zootopia is that in addition to some fine family comedy, it also packs some surprisingly poignant social commentary and a powerful message that everyone can probably take something away from when the credits roll. And of course, there will also be endless animal puns in Disney’s comedy that imagines a world where animals live like humans.
Now the puns are in full swing again with the latest marketing push from Disney, using the Academy Awards this weekend as inspiration to make some new parody posters of the nominees, along with a new TV spot. Check out the new Zootopia posters and TV spot below. Read More »
Last year, Mel Brooks got everyone excited at the mere mention of just the possibility of making Spaceballs 2 a reality. Talk of a sequel was used as a joke in the original spoof of Star Wars from 1987, and Brooks imagined what it might be like if he did follow-up with a sequel to go along with Star Wars: The Force Awakens:
“If I did a movie that came out right after Star Wars comes out — maybe a couple of months later — I’d have a big weekend, you know? No matter what, even if it fell on its ass and didn’t get its money back…but that first weekend, the anticipation of seeing Spaceballs 2, would…I still have Daphne Zuniga and I still have Rick Moranis if he’d do it, and I’ve still got me.”
Now we have something else to tease our desire for Spaceballs 2 as some teaser posters have appeared in a New York City subway, donning the title that was teased in the first film. However, since this is an isolated appearance of the posters, we’re not going to hold our breath that they’re real. Still, you can see them below! Read More »

Game of Thrones season 5 may have been the weakest outing yet for HBO‘s flagship series, but it was still must-see TV. Even at its most inconsistent, there is nothing like this black-hearted fantasy series, which continues to pull no punches, take no prisoners, and inspire enraged think pieces on a weekly basis. Game of Thrones is just the best at being Game of Thrones, which means it is the only show doing what it is doing. And it does it well.
With the new season only two months away, the marketing has officially begun in earnest. We’ve already seen a teaser poster hinting at the resurrection of a certain dead Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and a creepy teaser trailer that brought us back to the macabre archives underneath the House of Black and White. Now, a new batch of character posters have arrived to remind us that no one on this show is safe, everyone is going to die, and even your favorite characters face certain doom at every turn.

Rejoice, children of the world! The real stars of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice finally have their posters. Cancel your letter-writing campaigns! Stop protesting in the streets! Tear down your Batman and Superman posters! Because now, we finally have one-sheets for Alfred Pennyworth, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor.
I kid. In fact, I kid because I love. I love waking up to the sight of three character posters for a massive superhero movie featuring actors like Jeremy Irons, Jesse Eisenberg, and Amy Adams. Like the rest of the marketing for Batman v Superman, these are more than a little silly, but you’ve got to love how a butler, a reporter, and an evil corporate genius get their own entires in a poster series that also includes a masked vigilante, a powerful alien, and an Amazon warrior.
