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!

Two recently revealed news bit on upcoming Blu-ray releases seem to have particular interest to the /Film readership, I would guess. First of all, DVD Town have run a list of the Warner Bros. 2010 slate and, besides some of my own must-buys like Three Kings, Mars Attacks and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, there was also a listing for The Goonies: 25th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The film has already been given a basic (and region free, thus importable) release in Europe, but so far has yet to hit US shelves. According to the site, there will also be a DVD release, which suggests new special features and not just a HD upgrade.

Meanwhile, there’s also a rumoured release for Jurassic Park on Blu-ray later this year. There’s no info on any special features, but I’d imagine Universal will peg this as a flagship title and push the boat out a little. Interestingly, Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World is also rumoured, but not chapter 3. The story originates on Planete HD, found via Blu-ray.com.

Fan Created Goonies Musical

Goonies Cast Reunion Empire Magazine

While a sequel to The Goonies might not be happening (or is it?), director Richard Donner has been trying to turn the property into a Broadway Musical.Who knows if that will ever happen, but we might have a preview of what a Goonies musical might sound like. /Film reader Rob Dean has been writing songs for a Goonies musical with his friend Keith Doughty, way before it ever became a thought in Donner’s mind. They have sent over a couple music videos based on the sample compositions they have created. Again, these songs/videos are completely fan created, and not in anyway connected with Donner or the actual Broadway musical (which may or may not still be in development). Watch the videos, and listen to the songs, embedded after the jump.

Oh, and that what-do-they-look-like-now cast reunion photo above is from Empire Magazine’s 20th Birthday Issue last year.
