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 24 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!

One of my favorite pop culture artists in a cartoonist named Dave Perillo. You’ve seen his work featured in many past editions of Cool Stuff and all those Crazy4Cult art show pieces. I just love his retro style, and have at least ten of his prints hanging on the walls of /Film HQ (well, actually, I havent hung most of them, but when I start hanging my framed prints, this will be literally true). His latest creation is titled “Expendable”, but isn’t actually for the movie Expendables but instead old school Star Trek and the always expendable Red Shirt Starfleet Officer. See the whole piece of art after the jump.
Teefury is selling the design on a t-shirt today for only $9 plus shipping. The tee will only be on sale today only so get it while you can.

If you’ve been reading /Film for a while, then you know that I love good movie-inspired art. And the superbowl of movie art is Crazy4Cult, an art show put on every year by Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. This year’s show will open on July 9th, and we have seen the first batch of artwork premiere online. For years I’ve been writing about the show, and posting and buying the art online. I’m super excited because this year I’ll be able to attend the event since I now live in Los Angeles. After the jump you will see a compilation of the artwork I have found thus far. New pieces from Eric Tan, Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and more. We should have another preview closer to the show. Believe me, if you like movie art, hit the jump!

As you probably know by now, Gallery1988 will be holding their third annual pop culture art show Crazy4Cult 3D from July 16th to August 8th in Los Angeles. Over the past couple weeks we’ve featured a couple of the fantastic art that will be on display at the show, including Jeff Boyes’ take on Luc Besson’s 1994 film The Professional, and Jim Horwat’s Back to the Future Tribute. We should have a couple more exclusive looks in the coming weeks, but lets first take a look at some of the other fantastic art which has begun to appear around the interwebs.
We’ve featured some of Tom Whalen’s art in past editions of Cool Stuff (posters, Dark Knight magazine cover, Watchmen art, The Shining and The Warriors, Predator, 80′s super villains). Whalen has created two pieces for the Crazy4Cult 3D show, the first of which is this poster for Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness. Apparently a limited edition run of 70 prints will be available at the show, or by contacting the gallery afterwards. We’ll keep you updated when and if these become available outside the show. You can see more of Tom’s wonderful artwork on deviantart.
You have also seen some of Dave Perillo‘s art in past editions of Cool Stuff (Random art, Watchmen, The Joker, Ghostbusters). For Crazy4Cult 3D he has created a 70′s or 80′s style board game based on The Goonies. Like Whalen, this is just the first of two pieces he will have on display at the show. They will also be making a limited edition run of 50 16″ x 20″ giclee prints signed and numbered. Check out more of Perillo’s art on deviant art. Gallery1988 is using the image on post cards to promote the show. Click on the image in the header of this post to get a better look.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of UHF, Keith Noordzy has created “Al of the Dead”.
Daniel Rizzolo created this awesome oil on board Pee-Wee Herman’s Big Adventure-inspired piece “I’m a Loner, a Rebel”.

The Philadelphia Cartoonist Society held a Watchmen tribute art show called “Children of the Watchmen” last week at Brave New World Comics in Philadelphia, PA. The show featured Watchmen-inspired art from some of the artists we’ve featured in past editions of Cool Stuff, like Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo.
Dave Perillo created retro propaganda posters featuring Night Owl and Dr. Manhattan.
