These three Star Wars posters are so beautiful, we figured they needed to be featured twice.
Eric Tan is one of our favorite artists here at /Film but, unlike others, he doesn’t release a lot of prints. That’s because his day job is a designer at Disney. That’s cool on its own, but in the past few years, it means he gets to play in the coolest sandbox of all: Star Wars. Over the past few months, Disney has been sporadically releasing Tan’s posters for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and this week, he revealed Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Unfortunately, Disney chose to only release these Eric Tan Star Wars posters framed and that makes them quite expensive. But you should check them out below and read more about the beautiful posters. Read More »

While we might have to wait a little while longer for a proper Guardians Of The Galaxy anime, Marvel is going to bring the galactic superhero group to Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers in Japan. According to IO9, the “ridiculous, Beyblade/Pokémon-esque anime series” is “designed solely to sell Marvel merch to young kids.” And next week our new favorite group of space misfits are set to appear on the anime series.
I should note that the art above is not from the anime episode but actually an amazing piece done by one of our favorite artists, Eric Tan, who created the anime-style art of Big Hero 6 which will be sold in Disney Stores at some point. Also note the piece is flipped sideways to fit our header image guidelines. Which brings us to the question: what will the real Guardians of the Galaxy anime designs look like? Hit the jump to see a photo and video.

This Friday, Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles is being turned into the private travel agency of artist Eric Tan. Tan, who works full time in creative at Disney Consumer Products, created posters based on his global travels, then organized them as a solo show called Fly. It opens June 28. The artist – who we’ve covered for years – has created 15 posters based on real places like New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego (as well as one fictional city) that showcase his love of pop culture as well as his unique, geometric styles. Below, we exclusively debut five of the 15 pieces in the show including the one fictional entry: Hill Valley 1985, based on Back to the Future Part II. Read More »
Monday, we exclusively premiered Mondo’s Tyler Stout posters for Captain America: The First Avenger. They were bold, brash, and exactly the kind of beautiful busy style we’ve come to expect from Stout. We also mentioned that, in addition to Stout’s Captain America posters, Mondo would be releasing additional Cap posters by /Film favorites, Eric Tan and Olly Moss. Besides being inspired by the same movie, the differences between Stout’s posters and these couldn’t be more significant. For one, Moss and Tan didn’t make movie posters. They each made a set of World War II propaganda posters, one for the Americans and one for Hydra. Which do you side with? Check out all the images and decide after the jump. 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?
