What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 29 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!

Mondo’s Star Wars poster series has come to an end with a finale fitting of George Lucas’s epic trilogy. Tyler Stout, the man whose work put movie prints and Mondo on the map, has done a series of six posters immortalizing the original trilogy in a way that only Stout can: big, bold and boisterous. UGO exclusively revealed his posters for Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, plus variants of all three (including a Revenge of the Jedi!), which will be on sale New Year’s Eve at a random time. Check out the posters and more after the jump. Read More »
A snowman version of Jabba the Hutt was spotted last week in Spokane, WA by FETTS.
Earlier today, we posted an Olly Moss poster that you can’t buy. Little did we know that mere hours later, he’d reveal three that you can at least attempt to buy. And they are exquisite.
The minimalist man behind some gorgeous Lost and Rolling Roadshow posters is the next artist in the Mondo Star Wars series and he’s not only created one, he’s created three 24 x 36 inch beauties for Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Each print has a pretty big edition size, 400 each, and cost $50 each. They’ll go on sale on Mondo’s site Monday December 20 at a random time. Follow @MondoNews on Twitter for the announcement. After the jump, look at the three images in all their glory. Read More »
Daniel Danger has one of the most distinctive styles of all the poster artists working today. Dark and detailed with a lot of shadow and light, when Danger tackles a pop culture subject, you’re in for something special. We first saw Danger’s work when he did an awesome set of Amelie prints, and he was one of the breakout artists from the Lost Underground Art Show with his gorgeous rendition of Jacob’s Cabin and the insta-sell out of The Black Rock. Universal commissioned him to make a poster for The Wolfman, and he even did a beautiful rendition of Fenway Park that currently graces my wall as well as bad-ass Scott Pilgrim concert poster that totally broke from his trademark approach.
So my eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw that he was the next artist in Mondo’s Star Wars series. The piece is called Sanctuary Moon and lends itself perfectly to Danger’s unique and beautiful style. Check it out and get on sale details below. Read More »

Justin Ishmael of Mondo Tees promised more and more famous characters in the second half of their sold out Star Wars poster series and he’s already delivered. The last print featured Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker (in a moment that might have been ruined years prior) and the latest print features everyone’s favorite Wookie co-pilot Chewbacca.
Attack Position by Rich Kelly goes on sale Friday November 12 and Kelly crushed this one. I particularly love the AT-ST in the corner and the flat Stormtroopers bowing at Chewie’s feet on the forest moon of Endor. There’s more information about the sale and the poster after the jump. Read More »
Han Solo in Carbonite is my favorite piece of movie memorabilia ever. There, I said it. In the Nineties, a company made a small number of authorized prop replicas of it and I believe they cost $3,000 each. Though I was probably 13 at the time, to this day I regret not buying it. Just think of all the non-at-all-awkward conversations I could have had bringing girls to my place. “Yeah, I’m a bounty hunter…and you’re my bounty.” Or maybe, “Behave or I’ll put you on the wall too.” You know, things like that. So, when I saw this amazing full size Lego recreation of Han Solo in Carbonite, I knew I had to share it….after wiping the drool from the side of my mouth. Check out the full photo and more the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There’s nothing quite like a bit of conflict between former creative partners to make a film’s backstory more interesting. George Lucas and Gary Kurtz famously split many years ago after The Empire Strikes Back, when the direction of the Star Wars movies took a turn that Kurtz didn’t like.
Some stories have been told of the split, and of what Kurtz saw as flaws of the Star Wars series. But now, in honor (might use that word lightly) of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration V, Kurtz has said quite a lot about what he thinks of the Star Wars saga. Read More »
