These days, animation isn’t as defined by age as it once was. Once upon a time, a Disney movie was only thought to be for kids. But recently, Pixar has tackled mature themes, the humor of South Park has become a cultural institution, Star Wars is an animated TV series, comic book characters have cartoons and thanks to genres like anime, R-rated animation isn’t an oxymoron.
Enter Justin White, an up and coming artist made popular through sites like Threadless. He’s decided to take that thought one step further and turn some of your favorite live action movies and TV shows in to animation. His first solo show is called Rated G and opens at Gallery 1988 Melrose, in Los Angeles on Friday. We’re proud to exclusively the entire show.
White’s familiar yet flithy animated style has reimagined scenes from 30 films and shows never meant for animation. Films like Fight Club, Fargo, Casablanca, The Breakfast Club, Oldboy, Kindergarden Cop, Alien, Reservoir Dogs, There Will Be Blood and a whole lot more have been reimagined as high quality animation cels. He even tackled TV shows like Community, The Office, Breaking Bad and more.

Rather awesomely, it includes “a coffin, rigged with speakers and hydraulics, to experience a ride to a cemetery and burial” that can be experienced for a decaying three bucks U.S. Progress. The video contains a chat with the museum’s curator, as well as lots of decaying mall goers, and is posted below…

Now this was a remake I didn’t see coming. THR’s Heat Vision blog is reporting that George Romero’s zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead, is going to be remade into a 3D CGI film by first-time director Zebediah de Soto. The project, titled Night of the Living Dead: Origins, will have no involvement from Romero (though that may not be a bad thing these days). De Soto mentioned that he wants to focus on the character’s backstories, and aim for it to look like an “American-styled anime”. Origins is being produced by Simon West (Con Air, Tomb Raider)—which probably isn’t the most heartening bit of news.

The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode of the /Filmcast: After Dark, Dave, Devindra, Adam, and Mike continue their meandering discussion about whether Fight Club makes sense, and spend 8 minutes mining the depths of the Marley & Me trailer. Also Dave gets unnecessarily uptight about the Tucker Max movie. Special guests Andy Sorcini joins us from The Drill Down and Sean Dwyer joins us from Filmjunk.
