Earlier this month, we wrote about Matt Zoller Seitz‘s new book The Wes Anderson Collection, a book examining the work of writer/director Wes Anderson. The Pulitzer Prize finalist has been following Anderson’s career since the very beginning, and has teamed up with editor Steven Santos to bring the book to the web in a documentary/video essay format. Last week we posted the first two chapters, on Bottle Rocket and Rushmore. Matt has now released Chapter 3 and 4 which cover The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. Both are online and available to view after the jump.

For the third straight year, the films of Wes Anderson have been framed. Spoke Art, San Francisco’s pre-eminent pop art gallery, has just opened their third annual Bad Dads show featuring works of art inspired by the films of the fantastic filmmaker. It’s a show Anderson himself is aware of and a fan of. In our interview earlier this year on the occasion of Moonrise Kingdom, he said the following about the show:

I have seen some [of the art] on the Internet and seeing somebody make artwork inspired by things in my movies is one of the most exciting things to me.

Moonrise Kingdom was exciting for lots of artists this year too as Anderson’s latest film was one of the most popular subjects chosen. But that doesn’t mean classics like Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and others weren’t well-represented.

After the jump, check out just a small sampling of the art now available from the show, which is open through November 24. Read More »

Wes Anderson‘s unique aesthetic may be more in vogue than ever, but since real life doesn’t come with production designers and cinematographers it can be rather difficult to duplicate the look at home. Until now!

As part of their Blu-ray release of The Royal Tenenbaums, the Criterion Collection has unveiled the covers of various book and magazine covers featured in the film. All you need now is a high-quality photo printer at home, and you can replace the embarrassing covers of your Fifty Shades of Grey collection with these stylish designs. (Or, you know, you can just look at them for fun.) In any case, check ‘em out after the jump.

This December will mark ten years since Wes Anderson released The Royal Tenenbaums and it remains as breathtaking today as it was in 2001. The unique portrait of an eclectic New York family of artists would have been interesting on its own but mix it up with Anderson’s trademark style and it pops off the screen. A new piece by artist Rich Pellegrino does the same thing, taking Anderson’s memorable characters and immortalizing them in his trademark watercolor-esque style. Check out your exclusive first look at the full piece after the jump and find out when you can buy it. Read More »

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 31 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!

Last year we featured Ibraheem Youssef‘s minimalistic movie posters for the films of Quentin Tarantino. The Toronto based designer/art director has returned with a new set of simple and clean poster art focusing on the films of Wes Anderson: Bottle Rocket, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic. Youssef plans to complete the series with posters for Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited and Fantastic Mr.Fox. I particularly love the poster design for Tenenbaums. Check out the designs after the jump. You can also purchase prints on the artist’s official website.
