Almost a year ago, it was revealed that Disney was secretly working on a Tron video game and imaginations got fired up. Between this video game, Tron characters joining Disney Infinity, the new Tron Lightcycle Power Run ride at Shanghai Disneyland, and the hazy existence of Tron 3 on the horizon, it was a good time to be a fan of this fascinating, but wounded film series.
And then Tron 3 was canceled. And now, that video game looks to be a pretty straightforward “runner,” albeit one that makes good use of the series’ stunning visuals. Weep, Tron acolytes! For this is not the best time to be fan of this franchise.

Craig Drake‘s work can stop you in your tracks. Drake uses what feels like a bare minimum of elements to perfectly represent his subject in a striking and distinctive way. You might call it “minimalist,” but that would be a discredit to the energy contained in each piece.
In 2014, Drake had a very-well received solo show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. A few of the pieces even made my best of the year list. This year, the did a follow up show that contained even more beautiful work based on properties we all know and love. Stuff like Star Wars, Tron, Kill Bill, Akira, Pulp Fiction and more. Below, check out images from the latest Craig Drake Solo Show. Read More »
One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone takes a photo in terrible light. It’s dark, everything is quiet and then huge flash goes off. I think ” You just ruined that.”
Most people are blissfully ignorant to the importance of light in art, not just in photography, but anything visual. Which, I assume, is one of the reasons why artist Raid 71 is calling his latest solo show Illuminate. The pop culture art show features works from films like Blade Runner, Tron, The City of Lost Children, Akira, Mean Streets, Dark City, Midnight Cowboy, The Fisher King, Taxi Driver and more that focus on light, and light juxtaposed with architecture, in cinema. The show opens May 15 at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY and below you can see a bunch of art from the show. Read More »
You probably know Matt Ferguson‘s work. He did the popular Guardians of the Galaxy/Star Wars mashup. He did these beautiful Star Wars and Lord of the Rings prints. He’s got an great eye for pop culture but, more important, the space a pop culture character inhabits. That’ll be the focus of his first solo show, Distant Lands, which opens Friday March 27 at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
Ferguson has created 10 new screenprints and 24 original pieces all showing pop culture characters in various, vast environments. Some of these – like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings – you’ve probably already seen. However, /Film is happy to exclusively reveal the bulk of the show including pieces for The Fifth Element, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Superman, The Hobbit, The Neverending Story, Forbidden Planet and Silent Running.

The words “Tron” and “video game” are about as synonymous as “Marvel” and “comic book.” Tron, of course, is the 1982 Disney film, by Steven Lisberger, which was directly influenced by video games. It’s basically about a man who goes into a game, and the first film spawned several games and then, a few decades later, a sequel that took the idea even further. More games then came out of that sequel.
While fans patiently wait for a third film that will probably never happen, it seems like a new Tron video game may be on the way. In an interview with Oscar-winning songwriter and composer Giorgio Moroder, he says he’s going to be working with electronic music producer Skrillex on the music for a new Tron video game.
