Infographic: The Ultimate Nerd Guide to New York City

Hollywood may be synonymous with moviemaking, but when it comes to iconic cinematic landmarks, few cities can beat New York, NY. The Big Apple’s many facets are well represented in every type of story, for every type of person — including, of course, geeky types like us. While all the other tourists are running to Katz’s Deli to pay way too much for the sandwiches Sally made famous in When Harry Met Sally, BuzzFeed’s guide to nerd-friendly New York City spots will direct you to Avengers HQ and the future home of Planet Express. Check it out after the jump.

The New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is one of those movie theaters that film fans must visit at some point in their life. Maybe it’s not the prettiest theater in the world, but the tickets are cheap, the popcorn is cheap, and it regularly has some of the best, if not the best, repertory screenings imaginable, mostly in double features. Now, for their 2011 season, they’ve decided to kick it off the Wright way. The Edgar Wright way.

The New Bev will play host to over two weeks of films programmed by director Edgar Wright. They did it three years ago and now, the director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (which will screen as one marathon) is back for The Wright Stuff II. Wright has chosen twenty films to play over 18 days beginning January 14 and most of the films are specially themed double features. Want to know what’s playing when, with what and whom? Then hit the jump. Read More »

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.  After the jump you will see a compilation of the artwork I have found thus far. New pieces from Eric Tan, Dave Perillo, Tom Whalen and more. We should have another preview closer to the show. Believe me, if you like movie art, hit the jump!

In this day and age, it’s difficult for men to agree on much of anything, but we all feel that the Miami Hurricanes are the greatest college football team of all time. Yeah? A new feature-length doc entitled The U about the University of Miami’s equal parts legendary and notorious football program more than upholds this notion. As the latest entry in ESPN‘s 30 for 30 showcase, The U joins other sports documentaries made by reputable and well known filmmakers the likes of Peter Berg, Barry Levinson and forthcoming ones by Morgan Freeman and Jeff Tremaine of Jackass.

After the jump is a choice clip from The U and an interview with its producer, Alfred Spellman, who has made a name for himself alongside pal and U director, Billy Corben, with their Miami-based production company rakontur. Spellman discusses his doc, and the team itself within a historical and cultural context. He also updates on other projects including rakontur’s Cocaine Cowboys franchise, which is soon to be a major HBO series from Michael Bay.

The Alamo Drafthouse will be holding screenings of The Warriors, and Mondo Tees has commissioned a bunch of artists to create a series of posters to promote the screening. The first wave of posters were created by two of my favorite artists, Eric Tan and Tyler Stout.

We’ve featured many of artist Eric Tan’s creations in past Cool Stuff columns: we’ve spotlighted his work for past Pixar productionsX-MenLOST, among other things. Tan has been creating a series of posters for the Indiana Jones film series. You can see his Raiders of the Lost Ark and Temple of Doom posters in our linked Cool Stuff articles.

We’ve been writing about artist Tyler Stout since I first found his “Remember the Alamo” poster at the Alamo Drafthouse. The Austin based artist frequently provides kick ass posters for the Alamo’s special events, most of which we have featured on /Film: Robocop , The Road Warrior , Spaced , Hellride , Big Trouble in Little China, The Lost Boys, The Warriors , The Thing, Blade Runner, Total Recall and The Big Lebowski.

Check out the posters after the jump.

Where the Wild Things Ought to Be…

warriors

The Furies versus The Furries? Spike Jonze‘s official blog for Where the Wild Things Are, We Love You So, is currently running a fan art contest—prize: WTWTA skatedecks—and entries thus far have been rather inventive and/or delightfully hokey. For instance, while the above image is sans iconic creatures, the positing of the film’s child character, Max, alongside The Warriors gets the imagination firing down corridors previously closed-off. We’ve posted a few more  superlative mash-ups after the jump…
