If you get bummed every now and then that you weren’t able to ship off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry when you turned 11 years old, we’ve got something that might soften the blow a little bit.
Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima are the artists responsible for creating the graphic style of all the Harry Potter movies. That includes posters for the Hogwarts text books, the Marauder’s Map, The Daily Prophet, The Black Family Tree, and much more. Now you can bring some of their incredible work home to decorate your house in the form of some incredibly detailed and amazing Harry Potter wallpaper created by Mina and Lima themselves. It looks straight out of the wizarding world. Read More »
“I want to put my fist through this whole lousy beautiful town.” That’s what Resistance fighter Rose Tico says when she looks at the glitz and glamor of the rich and soulless on the casino planet of Canto Bight. And we can’t help but assume that she would want to do the same with this new line of high-end Star Wars furniture created by designer Kenneth Cobonpue.
The collection of upscale Star Wars furniture was first unveiled last year, but pieces were only available in only in the Philippines, which is where Cobonpue is from. Now this line of Star Wars furniture is available in the United States at select details, but you better be ready to break your bank account to get your hands on these items. Read More »
We’re two episodes into the final season of Game of Thrones, and the battle for Winterfell is nearly upon us. After this weekend, we’ll be halfway through the end of HBO’s fantasy series, so there’s no better time to light a candle in the show’s honor. Of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration of Game of Thrones if it didn’t come in the form of something truly cruel and twisted.
Remember when the bratty King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) was killed after being poisoned all the way back in the fourth season? He died a gruesome death with blood pouring from his eyes, nose and mouth. And now you can get your hands on the perfect candle holder that will make the wax look like it’s dripping out of Joffrey’s face. Find out where you can get it below. Read More »

There’s already a Hellboy whiskey that was released earlier this year, but if you’re looking for something a little harder, former Hellboy film franchise director Guillermo del Toro has something that you might want to get your hands on.
Beloved horror, fantasy and sci-fi filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has teamed up with the tequila company Patrón to offer his own extra añejo tequila for the ages. Before you think this is just an instance of another celebrity trying to make some extra cash by slapping their name on a bottle of alcohol, you should understand that del Toro comes from Jalisco, Mexico, which is the home of tequila itself. Plus, once you see the bottle, you’ll see that del Toro put the same kind of effort into this little endeavor as he does his motion pictures.
Check out Patrón’s Guillermo del Toro tequila below. Read More »
When you’re walking the show floor at San Diego Comic-Con International, you are presented with a ton of eye candy: booths for upcoming movies, comic books, and video games. Collectible dealers show off their upcoming statues, figures and prop replicas. Companies sell their very limited Comic-Con exclusives. And there’s the standard merch booths and artist alley.
Every year while walking the show floor, I snap photos of the coolest new collectibles I see and post them here for everyone who couldn’t make it to San Diego to enjoy. Below, check out the best of the Comic-Con 2017 collectibles, from Star Wars, DC, Marvel, Ghostbusters, Blade Runner, Jurassic Park and more.

John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic The Thing is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I’d jump at any opportunity to return to the film’s paranoia-fueled research station. Looks like I better start stretching and put on my jumping shoes (that’s a thing, right?), because Mondo, the company largely responsible for the rise of poster art over the past decade, is breaking into the board game business, and their first game is called The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31.
We’ve written about the game in an edition of Cardboard Cinema, but now we have a first look at the box art, the game board, and more. Refuel your flamethrowers and read on.

Nashville is a great city. If you’re ever there for a weekend, there’s plenty to do and see. And starting in the spring of 2018, you might be able to check out the August Moon indoor drive-in when you’re there — which has modified classic cars to sit in, dining food, a bar, and even bleachers. Basically, it’s a huge soundstage, with a bit of a show staged before and after a movie. Not all of the money is raised yet for the project, but it’ll cost $10 million.
Below, learn more about Nashville’s indoor drive-in.
