If you live in Los Angeles and love pop culture themed art, this weekend is Christmas, Hanukkah, Spring Break and the Super Bowl rolled into one. Saturday, 24-year-old U.K. artist Olly Moss is having his first solo art show at Gallery 1988 Melrose. You may know Moss as the guy who did Locke’s Secret, last year’s Rolling Roadshow posters, some incredible Star Wars posters, the Thor cast and crew poster and a ton of classic t-shirts. Yeah, the guy is amazing (I own seven of his prints myself) and this show will feature almost 200 new pieces inspired by the world of movies, comics, music and more.
However, Moss’s show is top secret so we don’t have anything to show from that…yet. Luckily, Gallery 1988 now has two locations and their second show is equally as awesome. Thursday in Venice they’ll be opening The 3B Show, the sequel to last year’s epic 3G Show (which we then highlighted in four parts), featuring art by The Autumn Society. This year, the show features art from Back to the Future, Beetlejuice and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (and probably Bogus Journey too). Unlike the Moss show, there are a ton of images available from The 3B Show and you can check them out after the jump. Read More »

See that large blank spot on your wall? This week is a great time to fill it with a limited edition movie themed print. Mondo has a few posters for movies that haven’t been interpreted much like Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice and Chris Morris’ Four Lions (which we exclusively premiered here). Then, several of the prints we highlighted from the Wes Anderson themed Bad Dads show at the Lopo Gallery in San Francisco are either on sale now or going on sale later this week, including full sets by Kevin Tong and Tim Doyle. More details after the jump. Read More »
Warner Bros has announced the release of the Danny Elfman & Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box, a limited edition set which celebrates 25 years of creative collaboration between the duo. The box set features more than 19 hours of music, including fan-requested expansions of 13 film scores (in CD cases featuring artwork created by Burton), plus seven hours of previously unreleased music, a Tim Burton-designed USB skeleton Flash Drive containing MP3s of the whole collection, and a bonus DVD featuring an exclusive conversation between Elfman and Burton.
Not only that, but the set which is limited to only 1000 copies, includes Danse Macabre: 25 Years of Danny Elfman and Tim Burton, a “meticulously researched, lavishly illustrated 250+ page fine linen-wrapped hardbound book, entitled with gold foil stamping, and featuring a foreword by Johnny Depp. The book also includes rare photos, stories, and interviews from the cast and crew behind the scenes of this classic music”. The set is boxed in something that is “designed to evoke a treasure chest found in a mysterious attic” — a large scale, tin-covered music box complete with an embedded music chip playing “The Music Box Suite” arranged and performed by Elfman specifically for this historic collection. And to literally top it all off, with a flip of the lid, a delightful working zoetrope is revealed featuring strips of art and photos by Burton and Elfman that come to animated life with a spin.
The set will be released in December 2010 and is available for preorder on www.elfmanburton.com for $499.99 (plus shipping). Looks amazing, but I can’t justify that high of a price. And at that price it should come signed by both Elfman and Burton (the set is hand numbered but not signed). Check out photos and more information after the jump.

We’ve featured many of the Alamo Drafthouse commissioned movie posters in past editions of cool stuff. Today Mondo has released three posters for the Drafthouse’s Halloween series of films: Beetlejuice, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and John Carpenter’s Halloween. Unfortunately, the posters were very popular and sold out minutes after going on sale. But you can still check out the digital images after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Lester “Beetlejuice” Green has supposedly been spotted on the Princeton set of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Many people know the little man with the even smaller head as one of the members of the Wack Pack on the Howard Stern Show. And anyone who reads the site knows I’m a huge Stern fan from wayyyy back (he gets me through my blogging day). There was a casting call for “a male little person, any ethnicity, age between 30 and 65.” Green (seen behind Michael Bay in the photo above) has appeared on the big screen before, in 2001’s Scary Movie 2 and Bubble Boy. Could he be making a cameo in Transformers 2, or is he just visiting the set?
PhillyFilmGirl also captured video of Frenzy attacking a car. Check it out after the jump.
