If you’re a hardcore Star Wars fan, there’s probably no way of knowing how many times you’ve seen the original film from 1977. However, we can guarantee that you’ve never seen the movie like this.
An illustrator and graphic novelist from Geneva, Switzerland took the time to adapt Star Wars: A New Hope into a single infographic that measures 123 meters long. It’s really impressive how he took the entire movie and created a scrolling presentation of the story. It includes dialogue, ships, settings and all the important details. Check out the Star Wars A New Hope infographic after the jump. Read More »
Even if the excitement for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is high for plenty of fans, I think we can all agree that the marketing campaign has left something to be desired. Not only have the trailers not been cut all that well, but the posters have been pretty unremarkable as well. Thankfully, Poster Posse has delivered some original, incredible artwork to pay tribute to the first big screen face-off between the Bat of Gotham and the Son of Krypton.
Below, we’ve gathered some of our favorite pieces from Poster Posse’s call for artists to give the battle of the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel their own artistic flair. Pretty much all of these pieces are better than any of the theatrical posters we’ve seen so far.

Tickets for the Deadpool movie have officially gone on sale and Fandango is celebrating in style. In addition to letting the Merc with a Mouth take over their site’s homepage (which is now dubbed “Fandeadgo”), they’ve handed the reins of their Twitter feed over to this red-suited menace.
But most importantly, Fandango is using the release of this film to highlight the work of a few talented artists and will be unleashing more Deadpool fan art over the coming weeks. They’ve sent over a few exclusive samples, so prepare yourselves for edged weapons, Terminator parodies, and, of course, chimichangas.

We’ve posted a lot of great Mad Max: Fury Road art over the past year, including a series from Poster Posse, Scott C’s epically-sized Great Showdown and Mondo’s Ken Taylor and Mike Mitchel prints. But that doesn’t mean we can’t post more great art inspired by George Miller’s science fiction action adventure film.
The latest batch of Mad Max Fury Road art comes from Denver, Colorado-based artist Christopher Cox of Changethethought Studio, who created two very cool Mad Max: Fury Road posters which depict memorable moments from the film inside the film’s bold title. Hit the jump to check out Cox’s Mad Max Fury Road posters and even gain some insight into his process.

For us in the audience, Mad Max: Fury Road felt thrillingly new when it raced into theaters this summer. But for director George Miller, it was the culmination of an idea that had been kicking around in his head for nearly two decades. A new book, The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road, shows us Miller’s original handwritten outline for the movie, dating all the way back to 1997.
Of course, now that Mad Max: Fury Road is actually out, it’s inspired its own wave of creativity, this time from the fans who fell for it in cinemas. One of the most stunning pieces of fan art we’ve seen retells Miller’s saga in — of all things — ancient Egyptian style. After the jump, see Miller’s original Fury Road outline and an Egyptian-style Fury Road reinterpretation. Read More »
Earlier this summer, we highlighted a video that showed you how to make a Back to the Future Part II hoverboard for just $33, which would be the perfect thing to take with you when you head to Los Angeles for the big 30th anniversary celebration happening in October (at least if you’ve got $800 lying around for a ticket).
But for those who don’t have a need for such a big homemade prop, maybe you’d like to make a nice little creation to set upon your desk that still shows how much you love Back to the Future. YouTube user DaveHax has created a video that shows you how to create a miniature Pepsi can DeLorean time machine model. Looks like a nice little arts and crafts project to pass the time. Read More »

When Comic-Con comes around each year, not only is there an overwhelming rush of blockbuster news, but there’s also a huge drain on our wallets. The convention has a slew of collectibles, toys, art, comics and plenty of other nerdy goods that would look great on our walls and shelves, and we’ve got another round of good stuff to spend your money on.
Gallery 1988, who has been responsible for some fantastic pop culture art exhibitions (like their recent tribute to Clue on its 30th anniversary), will be at Comic-Con next week, and they’ve just unveiled some of the exclusives that they’ll have on sale. Some of the pieces pay tribute to Star Wars, Mad Max, Marvel, Aliens and more. Check out the Gallery 1988 Comic-Con 2015 exclusives below! Read More »
This year marks the anniversary of several movies, including the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the 40th anniversary of Jaws and the 25th anniversary of Gremlins 2: The New Batch. But there’s another film that may not be quite as celebrated, but deserves to be honored for its 30th anniversary this year: the murder mystery comedy Clue.
Based on the classic board game of the same name, the film brings to life the strange and perplexing murder mystery that keeps getting worse as the stormy night carries on. If there’s one piece of evidence to show that adapting a board game into a movie can work, it’s Clue. And Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the movie with a collection of fantastic, original artwork. Check out the Gallery 1988 Clue artwork after the jump! Read More »
