In case you didn’t realize this year marks the 35th anniversary of Escape from New York, the classic sci-fi action flick from that was released all the way back in 1981. Even though the exact anniversary came and went last month on July 10th, a celebration seems appropriate since director John Carpenter just won a lawsuit against writer Luc Besson for plagiarizing the film while writing an eerily similar sci-fi acion movie called Lockout. And what better way to celebrate than with a new collectible print.
Grey Matter Art has teamed with artist Matt Ferguson for a new, officially licensed Escape from New York print that would be the perfect way to honor the film’s 35th anniversary. The artwork features Kurt Russell looking like a badass as Snake Plissken, and the style of the print is very much in the vein of movie posters from the 1980s. Check it out! Read More »

Next month, June 12 will mark the 29th anniversary of the release of the action classic Predator. There probably won’t be any celebration along the lines of Alien Day back in April, but there is one way that fans of the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie from Die Hard director John McTiernan. A new print from Matt Ferguson has been unveiled by Bottleneck Gallery, and you’ll be able to buy it today.

You probably know Matt Ferguson‘s work. He did the popular Guardians of the Galaxy/Star Wars mashup. He did these beautiful Star Wars and Lord of the Rings prints. He’s got an great eye for pop culture but, more important, the space a pop culture character inhabits. That’ll be the focus of his first solo show, Distant Lands, which opens Friday March 27 at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
Ferguson has created 10 new screenprints and 24 original pieces all showing pop culture characters in various, vast environments. Some of these – like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings – you’ve probably already seen. However, /Film is happy to exclusively reveal the bulk of the show including pieces for The Fifth Element, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Superman, The Hobbit, The Neverending Story, Forbidden Planet and Silent Running.

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.
That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »

You can see a brief glimpse of them above but get a better look, along with all the information, below. Read More »
