Every great hero has a great villain, a nemesis that completes their existence. It’s a theme explored in films like Unbreakable and The Dark Knight, and later this weekend will be the centerpiece at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles, CA.
Their latest show is called Arch Nemesis, and is comprised of works depicting that topic. Some of the work is just of the bad guys, others show both sides, but each takes into account that core idea: “Without evil there can be no good, so it must be good to be evil sometimes.”
The show opens May 24 and remains on display through June 15. Check out a selection of work below, including the exclusive reveal of the variant editions of Laurent Durieux’s Peter and Wendy poster. Read More »

Say what you want about Star Trek Into Darkness, but it’s had a lot of posters. Teaser posters, IMAX posters, character posters, the print campaign for the J.J. Abrams sequel has been incredibly extensive and diverse. Star Trek is such a vivid property, however, that there’s always room to go further.
One website brought together several up and coming pop artists to reinterpret the film with their own unique style. The results range from minimalistic and eye catching, to exaggerated and exciting. Others are realistic and lyrical. It’s a cornucopia of Trekkie goodness. Check them out below. Read More »

Jim Henson‘s Labyrinth, starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie, is one of those movies many of us loved as kids, but now tends to get lost in the shuffle. Connelly went on to win an Oscar, Bowie was already a musical legend and Henson had one or two other things going on as well. Not to mention, 1986 also saw the release of Aliens, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Transformers The Movie, Top Gun and more. Labyrinth has tons of competition for our nostalgic feelings. Still, the film remains an incredibly beautiful fantasy and it’s nice to see it finally getting some love in the pop art world.
After the jump, check out several differerent posters for Labyrinth by Paul Shipper, Criterion Collection regular Sam Smith and distinctive fan favorite Max Dalton. And we’ll throw in a Kill Bill poster too. Read More »
