We’ve seen art immortalizing music icons and we’ve seen art immortalizing movie icons. But rarely do we get to see one having sex with the other. That’s exactly what’s currently on display at Gallery 1988 Melrose in Los Angeles, a super twisted art exhibit by a group calling themselves The Butcher Kings.
The Butcher Kings consist of Alex Pardee (who has been on this site numerous times) and Skinner. Together they’ve taken all the properties we love in pop culture: Star Wars, Alien, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, He-Man, you name it, and either combined them with something completely different and subversive or just made them totally gross and hilarious. For example, in reference to the second sentence, there’s a piece called “F*** The Police” featuring Easy-E from NWA having doggie-style sex with a T-1000 from Terminator 2. It’s that kind of show.
Check out a bunch of the images after the jump. Be warned, though. Some are NSFW. Read More »

Sometimes there are posters so cool, people get mad when we post them. Posting them alerts more people to their awesomeness and, hypothetically, gives everyone less of a chance to buy one themselves. To those people, I apologize in advance.
Alex Pardee, whose work you might be familiar with from Sucker Punch or a new Attack the Block piece, has designed a “literally mind-blowing” poster for an upcoming Edgar Wright triple feature at the Castro Theater in San Francisco: Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. After the jump we’ll show you the full image and tell you where you can buy tickets to attend the event and pick up one of these beauties. Read More »
We’ve showcased the work of poster artist Alex Pardee before, and sadly the intent of this post is not to announce that he has produced, with commercial intent, art based on the great Joe Cornish film Attack the Block. This is, however, a post with the intent to announce that Alex Pardee has produced, with pure fan interest, art based on Attack the Block. It’s good stuff; you can see both pieces in the gallery below. Read More »
This Friday, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will hold the fifth Crazy 4 Cult art show, an annual exhibition which I’ve called the super bowl of pop culture art. I am so jealous of all my fellow Los Angelans who are able to attend this week. I’ll be away in Texas, but I can’t complain as I’ll be bringing back my girlfriend with me (the big move, exciting). The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site.
After the jump you will find part one of our preview, which includes a new Back to the Future-inspired piece by the great Eric Tan, Monster Squad and Better Off Dead pieces by /Film favorite Dave Perillo, an incredibly multi-level Scott Pilgrim vs. The World piece by Jim Horwat, Alex Pardee‘s tribute to a new cult classic, Rubber, and more. So what are you waiting for?

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 20 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!

Come this March, there’s going to be a lot of Alex Pardee on screen during Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch. The artist not only contributed artwork for the genre bending trip through a mental institution, but his drawings are the basis for much of the marketing campaign. We’ve already seen the finished posters that Pardee did of all the characters from the film and now we’ve got images of his original, hand-drawn sketches of those posters. Check them out, and find out how you can see Pardee’s work up close and personal in Los Angeles this month, after the break. Read More »
Artist Alex Pardee has been working with Zack Snyder on his latest film Sucker Punch. You might have noticed Pardee’s stylized bunny on the face of Amber’s mech. Some of his other designs also appear in the film. For Comic-Con, Pardee created a bunch of exclusive character posters. We didn’t see them during the con, but they have since shown up on io9. If you missed them in San Diego, you can check them out now after the jump.

It’s a crazy, mixed up world and we are thankful for movies, sans New Moon, that offer proof. Weekend Weirdness cocks its disoriented, nappy head to examine such flicks, whether in the form of a new trailer for a provocative indie, a review, or news of an excavated cult classic. The works discussed herein tend to make cinema a little more interesting, and in the best and worst cases do the same for life. In this installment: a doc on Norwegian black metal; a doc on the first Asian member of the Black Panthers; a forgotten Dennis Hopper outlaw flick from Down Under; and a dumb-catchy rap song from the Sudan about movies, birds and popcorn.
With the possible exception of Forever21-styled country music a la Taylor Swift, no other music genre is as stigmatized and sensationalized by acts of church burning and murda as Norwegian black metal. The documentary, Until the Light Takes Us, is a dedicated and almost clinical look at how Norway’s black metal scene was permanently transformed—and magnified—in the early ’90s by what are now infamous acts of violence and rebellion.
