Star Wars: The Force Awakens might be at the top of everyone’s mind today, but Sony would really appreciate it if you tried to remember it’s not the only new installment of a long-running action franchise coming this fall. There’s also Spectre — the 24th Bond film, the fourth one starring Daniel Craig, and the second one directed by Sam Mendes.
To help remind you of that fact, the studio has just released a whole bunch of new odds and ends from the film. Maybe the most intriguing piece is an in-depth featurette on the music of Spectre, with theme song singer Sam Smith, but there’s also a new TV spot and a new clip for your enjoyment. See it all after the jump. Read More »
Just last week, the final trailer for James Bond next’s mission, Spectre, arrived with a lot of action. It arrived not long after the film’s new theme song, “Writing’s on the Wall” by Sam Smith, debuted online. And now the film and the theme song meet in the Spectre theme music video.
While there are a lot of shots of Sam Smith singing while looking very sad and introspective, there’s some new footage from Spectre in the video as well, including some shots of James Bond (Daniel Craig) getting frisky with Monica Bellucci and also sharing a tender moment with Léa Seydoux.

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 »

If a bright orange screaming cat has crossed your path in the past few months, you can thank Sam Smith. The Nashville-based artist (who makes art under the pseudonym Sam’s Myth when he’s not playing drums for Ben Folds) came up with the above image that Janus Films used in their theatrical re-release campaign for Nobuhiko Ôbayashi’s 1977 cult film House. In addition to the famous image (which also adorns t-shirts, stickers and more), Smith has been designing posters for IFC Films releases like Carlos and Shoah and did the recent Criterion artwork for House as well as Everlasting Moments and Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times, with more on the way.
His home base, however, is the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, Tennessee and that’s where Smith will have his first art exhibit starting Thursday. Sam’s Myth – Film Posters is the name of the show which opens from 5-8 p.m. December 2 and remains on display through the end of the month during regular theater hours. Over 20 pieces of art are part of the exhibit, most of which were designed specifically for screenings at the Belcourt, much like Mondo does with the Alamo Drafthouse or Tommy Good does with the Astor Theatre. See a big gallery of images after the jump as well as details on where you can buy some and more. Read More »
