Odds are, when you woke up this morning you didn’t think, “I hope I see a really cool new poster for that film that really creeped me out as a child.”
Odd City Entertainment has teamed up with Wisconsin-based artist Mark Lone to make a poster for The Secret of Nimh, the 1982 animated film directed by Don Bluth. It’s the story of the heroic rat Mrs. Brisby and the incredible lengths she goes to save her ailing child. Those lengths include some imagery that would probably garner a PG-13 in today’s world, but were rated G back in ’82.
Much of that imagery is on display in this jaw-dropping 10 color screen print which goes on sale Thursday August 8. Get more info, and check out the full image below. Read More »
Conan the Barbarian, The Thing, Poltergeist, The Road Warrior, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Tron, and that’s just the beginning. Yes, the Summer of 1982 was probably the best one in the history of movies and that’s why the Alamo Drafthouse is celebrating with a summer long, 30th anniversary celebration screening a slew of the most exciting films released that year. Plus, there’s now a significant update jumping off last month’s announcement.
Tickets for the first screening, Conan the Barbarian, go on sale Tuesday morning along with a limited number of passes that’ll get you into eight of the screenings. Second, the series has expanded significantly, adding films such as The Dark Crystal, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Vice Squad, The Secret of Nimh, Friday the 13th Part 3, Q: The Winged Serpent, Pink Floyd: The Wall and more. Third, Blade Runner will not be screened (bummer).
And finally, in accordance with the /Film sponsored screening of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial on June 8 (tickets on sale May 25) we’re proud to exclusively debut the Mondo poster for the film by artist Dan McCarthy. Check out the poster, the important links, full lineup and more after the jump. Read More »
