We’ve got a bunch of cool movie art for you today. The Academy and Gallery1988 commissioned a small group of artists to create original screen prints inspired by this year’s nine Best Picture nominees. After the jump you can see some of them, including:

Thursday marks the end of Jason Reitman‘s series of live readings at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and, for most of us, that’s a relief. It’s a relief because we can finally stop being insanely jealous of the small group of people who’ve gotten to experience these incredible events which will never be released to the public. There’s still one to go, though, and it really ties the room together.

Of course, the final live reading is Joel and Ethan Coen‘s The Big Lebowski, one of the most beloved films in recent memory. And while no one could match the perfection the Coens achieved with their casting, Reitman will bring his own unique and fun actors to the material. At the top of the list, Seth Rogen as The Dude, originated by Jeff Bridges. Who’s playing Walter, Donnie, Maude, The Jesus, Bunny, Brandt, Jackie Treehorn and more? Find out after the jump.

Paramount Pictures is running unannounced pop-up screenings of Jason Reitman‘s new film Young Adult in cities around North America. As a special bonus, Reitman and Paramount enlisted the curatorial services of Los Angeles’ famous pop culture art gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for the surprise screenings.

There have been pop-up screenings in Toronto, Minneapolis, Chicago, Austin, and San Francisco, each with an accompanying poster. Tonight’s screening is in Los Angeles at the New Beverly Cinema, and once again attendees get a unique piece of limited edition artwork. For the Hollywood show, Matt Owen designed the poster. Check it out in full after the break. Read More »

Cool Stuff: Crazy 4 Cult 5 Preview #3


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. The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site. We posted part one here and part two here.

After the jump you will find part two of our preview, which includes JoeBot’s follow-up to the popular Fireflies record album — a record design for Dr. Horrible, Casey Weldon’s Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure poster, /Film favorite Scott C’s tribute to Easy Rider, and more. So what are you waiting for?

Cool Stuff: Crazy 4 Cult 5 Preview #1

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?
