According to writer/director James Gunn, Thursday night’s NBA Finals game will include both 30- and 60-second commercials for his upcoming Marvel adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy. No need to wait for Lebron James and Tony Parker to suit up, though, as the first spot has already appeared online. It has a few awesome new shots including a few of Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser (he’s the hooded guy at the beginning) and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) affirming the badassness of the Guardians. It’s super cool.
And if that’s not exciting enough, the Poster Posse – an international group of artists who do art based on the same upcoming movies – have released the first batch of art for Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s some truly beautiful and interesting stuff to be seen, including an already iconic mash-up of the 1977 one sheet for Star Wars by Matt Ferguson. Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy fan art and TV spot below. Read More »

Most of the time, art galleries do either group shows with a single theme or one artist’s complete vision. The latest exhibit at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles is a bit of both. The Young Guns of Print features the work of 18 individual up and coming artists, each of whom did two to fifteen pieces on a specific theme. That means instead of one cool piece for a film or filmmaker you like, you get multiple takes by artists who are still being established. Some examples of theme are superheroes, Tim Burton; the guns of Harrison Ford; Los Angeles; Harry Potter; and Lord of the Rings.
The exhibit opens Friday September 20 in Los Angeles and will go online Saturday September 21. Below, check out a sampling of work including an amazing series of Cloud Atlas posters by Paul Shipper. Read More »

Others are realistic and lyrical. It’s a cornucopia of Trekkie goodness. Check them out below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Part of the genius in the latest Star Trek films is how the screenwriters were able to reboot a franchise that already had ten movies, but keep the story in the same timeline. They did this, of course, by bringing back Leonard Nimoy through a time-travelling worm hole.
So though most people are referring to this month’s Star Trek Into Darkness as merely a sequel, in a way it’s also a prequel to Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
Those original films are the ones talented artist Matt Ferguson has tackled in a gorgeous series of posters. Check them out below. Read More »
