Book of Life

Concept art can be a huge tease — too often we see art that is a lot more visually striking than whatever ends up on screen for a given film. Even in animation, where the concept art and final product theoretically can be close, the difference can be huge.

Director Jorge Gutierrez is irritated when that happens, and promises that his upcoming Fox film The Book of Life, based around the Mexican Day of the Dead and produced by Guillermo del Toro, will look just like the film’s concept art. Read More »

True Romance header

When people talk about their favorite Quentin Tarantino movies, some ask “Does True Romance count?” Directed by Tony Scott, True Romance was one of Tarantino’s earliest screenplays and though he didn’t direct it, it totally feels like him. The tale of a slacker named Clarence (Christian Slater) and the love of his life Alabama (Patricia Arquette), is exciting, surprising, violent and hilarious. It’s filled with passion, pop culture, realism and an almost unbelievable cast of supporting characters.

There’s a huge celebration happening in Los Angeles and Odd City Entertainment has an officially licensed poster coming online Friday. Check it out below. Read More »
