Gallery 1988 - Dan Mumford - Close Encounters of the Third Kind

With the plethora of prints out there paying tribute to our favorite movies and TV shows, it’s always nice to have an artist whose style is uniquely their own. That’s why we love Dan Mumford so much.

We’ve featured plenty of Dan Mumford’s work before, but now he has a solo show coming to Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles this weekend with a whole new slate of pieces paying tribute to the likes of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Gremlins, Dune, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and more. Check out some of the Dan Mumford artwork below. Read More »

Say it with me: dance, magic, dance, the Goblin King is returning to our lives! This time, Jareth — the original Babe with the power of voodoo (over my heart) — will be casting his spell over readers of a new Labyrinth comic book from writer Simon Spurrier and artist Daniel Bayliss. The comic book series, titled Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, will explore the origin story of Jareth the Goblin King and how he came to reside over the titular mystical labyrinth.

It’s no secret that we here at /Film are big fans of Mondo and their very cool output of posters and collectibles. So we’re pleased to exclusively reveal six prints that the Austin-based company is bringing to San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Fans of Star Wars, Attack on Titan, Samurai Jack, Labyrinth, Beauty and the Beast, and 2001: A Space Odyssey who will be attending this year’s con will want to bring some extra cash (and probably a poster tube). Everyone else can still admire these beauties from afar.

Asking me to name my favorite artist regularly working for Mondo would be like asking me which one of my pets I’d rescue from a burning building first, but I do think Laurent Durieux is one of the most talented people working with them on a regular basis. Heck, I think he may be one the best pop culture artists working right now, period. After all, I did just buy his Bambi print from that big Disney art show.

And now, Durieux has made a poster for Labyrinth, one of the most beloved movies of the ’80s, and you can buy it tomorrow.

Johnny Depp in Mortdecai

Johnny Depp‘s career has been in a bit of rut over the past couple of years. The actor’s now ex-wife Amber Heard recently came forward with abuse allegations, which followed a string of box-office and critical disappointments. Some were hopeful Black Mass would be a comeback of sorts for Depp, a return to the real world for an actor who has a history of playing characters like, let’s say, Mortdecai and The Mad Hatter. Black Mass was another disappointment starring the actor, but he’s lined up another biopic to headline. In Labyrinth, Depp will play the L.A. Detective who investigated the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.

Below, learn more about the new Johnny Depp project.

There just aren’t enough new board games commemorating hits movies from the 1980s. In an effort to help rectify that situation, a company called River Horse has partnered up with The Jim Henson Company to create a Labyrinth board game, based on the 1986 fantasy film starring the late David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly.

The Labyrinth board game is scheduled to get released this summer and features some pretty impressive sculpts for the five collectible game pieces that players will use to navigate the board. Get more details on the Labyrinth board game after the jump. Read More »
