School of Rock NE header

Richard Linklater gets lots of love for his smaller movies like Dazed and Confused, Before Midnight, Bernie and Waking Life. Rightfully so. But one of his films that is sometimes overlooked is also, by far, the biggest grossing film of his career. That would be 2003′s School of Rock.

Written by Mike White and starring Jack Black, the film follows a slacker who poses as a substitute teacher, then turns his class into a world-class rock band. It’s one of those crowd-pleasing films that don’t really exist anymore; I dare you to turn it off if it’s ever on cable. The film’s 10 year anniversary is coming up in October and, to celebrate, Odd City Entertainment has commissioned artist NE to immortalize the film in screenprint. It’ll be exclusively available at an Austin-based anniversary screening of the film.

Vania Zouravliov - Pacific Rim

We’ve already seen some very cool collectible art based on Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim and it just keeps rolling in. Odd City Entertainment just revealed a few more posters; there’s a full Guillermo Del Toro art show opening in Los Angeles this weekend; and that mysterious Kaiju Remedies box included two images that look very much like Mondo posters.

For the third straight year, the films of Wes Anderson have been framed. Spoke Art, San Francisco’s pre-eminent pop art gallery, has just opened their third annual Bad Dads show featuring works of art inspired by the films of the fantastic filmmaker. It’s a show Anderson himself is aware of and a fan of. In our interview earlier this year on the occasion of Moonrise Kingdom, he said the following about the show:

I have seen some [of the art] on the Internet and seeing somebody make artwork inspired by things in my movies is one of the most exciting things to me.

Moonrise Kingdom was exciting for lots of artists this year too as Anderson’s latest film was one of the most popular subjects chosen. But that doesn’t mean classics like Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and others weren’t well-represented.

After the jump, check out just a small sampling of the art now available from the show, which is open through November 24. Read More »

When it comes to San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, everyone has their poison. Maybe you’re looking for the Mattel and Hasbro toys. Maybe it’s limited edition comic books, or freebies. It’s no secret I’ll be looking for posters and while we have yet to hear what Mondo has in store (though it’s probably going to be huge and you’ll be able to read all about it here very soon) we saw some very cool Con exclusive posters based on TV shows.

Now even Los Angeles pop culture gallery Gallery 1988 is getting in the mix. They’ll have at least three gorgeous exclusives: one based on The Last Starfighter, one based on Alien and the latest Breaking Bad piece. They all rule. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
