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 22 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!

With all the 25th anniversary Back to the Future hoopla recently, one film that has been grossly overshadowed is The Goonies. The classic Richard Donner directed, Steven Spielberg produced adventure story is also celebrating its silver anniversary in 2010 with a brand new Blu-ray release on November 2. To commemorate the occasion, Warner Brothers held a special anniversary event on their lot in Burbank, CA and stars Corey Feldman, Jeff Cohen, Jonathan Ke Quan, Robert Davi, Lupe Ontiveros, Joe Pantoliano as well as casting director Mike Fenton and Donner were on hand to discuss the film. Of course, much of the talk centered on the possibility of a sequel and then Donner mentioned that not only might The Goonies become a musical, there’s actually already a treatment out there. We’re got more after the jump. Read More »

The United States of Movies Map

Subtonix decided to create a map of the United States by pinpointing the movies which best represent each of the 50 states. For example, New Jersey is Clerks and Kansas is The Wizard of Oz. There will likely be some debate over some of these choices (is Fast Times at Ridgemont High the ultimate representation of California?) but it is an interesting concept none the less. It’s also interesting to note that more Coen Brothers films appear on the map than any other filmmaker. Hit the jump to see the whole map, and click to enlarge.

How does the Los Angeles-based Gallery 1988 top their Crazy4Cult show? By announcing a team-up with The Autumn Society for something they are calling “The 3G Show”. A Pop-Culture art show in tribute to Ghostbusters, Goonies, and Gremlins. 3 movies that defined our generation. How cool is that? The show will have their grand opening on Friday September 3rd from 7-10pm, and will run until September 22nd 2010. Which means I’ll be at Telluride just in time to miss this awesome art exhibition, and will be in Toronto for the Toronto Film Festival and Austin for Fantastic Fest, before the show even concludes. But I can still admire from afar. The show features new art from /Film favorites like Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo.

You may recall that we posted a preview featuring over 25 images from the upcoming show. After the jump I have compiled an additional collection of over 20 awesome pieces created for this exhibition. We should have a third compilation later this week or early next week, so keep checking back.

If you’ve been reading /Film for a while, then you know that I love good movie-inspired art. And the superbowl of movie art is Crazy4Cult, an art show put on every year by Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. This year’s show will open on July 9th, and we have seen the first batch of artwork premiere online. For years I’ve been writing about the show, and posting and buying the art online. I’m super excited because this year I’ll be able to attend the event since I now live in Los Angeles.

Last week I posted the first compilation of the artwork from the show, including new pieces from Eric Tan, Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and more. Click here to see Part 1!

Today I’ve returned to bring you a collection of art pieces which have since come online. Believe me, if you like movie art, hit the jump!

It’s The 25th Anniversary of The Goonies

The Goonies

The Goonies was released on June 7th 1985, twenty five years ago today. The film was a huge part of my childhood, as I assume it must have been for many children of the 80′s. In fact, as I type this post, I’m staring at a huge French Goonies poster hung on my office wall. Please leave your thoughts on growing up with the movie in the comments below, and wish the movie a happy anniversary!
