There’s a very fine line between making a poster that’s artistic and beautiful, but also recognizable as something from a movie. If you go too far one way, it might be obscure. The other way?

The poster goes on sale Thursday in three different editions. Read more about it below. Read More »

In 1980, Martin Scorsese set the bar for the best film of that decade with his black and white boxing masterpiece, Raging Bull. Starring Robert De Niro as legendary boxer Jake LaMotta, Scorsese’s technique was dwarfed only by the performances he got out of his cast in the tale of a boxer’s rise to the top and subsequent mental breakdown. In recent months, fans of the movie have been a bit up in arms as an unneeded, unauthorized sequel went into production putting the film’s legacy on the line.
