Long ago, Nickelodeon debuted a little animated series called Avatar: The Last Airbender. And everything changed. Avatar: The Last Airbender debuted in 2005 and quickly captured the imaginations of audiences with its richly inventive world, compelling characters, and a classic story of a fight between good and evil. Created by Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, Avatar: The Last Airbender drew its influences from anime, Chinese martial arts, and East and Southeast Asian imagery, resulting in one of the most striking animated series on the air. But it was its lovable, complex characters that kept audiences tuning in, as Konietzko and DiMartino proved that their little kids’ show could have some of the best character writing on TV.
Now, on its 15th anniversary, Avatar: The Last Airbender is back to save the world with its first ever Blu-ray SteelBook collection. The Avatar The Last Airbender SteelBook, which contains all three seasons and a slew of special features and new artwork, arrives today.

There are countless art prints for Back to the Future out there in the world, many of them for the original movie that introduced us to Marty McFly, Doc Brown and the time traveling DeLorean. But as a fan of the whole trilogy from director Robert Zemeckis, what I really like is when an artist creates a set of posters that represents the entire franchise with unifying imagery. Artist Andy Fairhurst has teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery for a new Back to the Future trilogy print set that satisfies all of that criteria. See it below! Read More »
Now that Valentine’s Day is finished, the next holiday that retail stores are getting ready to shove down your throat is Easter, the religious holiday that inexplicably results in endless amounts of candy, ranging from chocolate bunnies to jelly bean eggs.

Bong Joon-ho doesn’t hand his cast a script – he hands them a comic book. Or more accurately, a book full of the film’s storyboards that the Oscar-winning director meticulously draws himself. Bong has been known for storyboarding all of his movies before he ever gets behind the camera, shooting with a level of precision that is rarely seen in filmmakers today. And no film better shows that precision than Bong’s Best Picture-winning film Parasite.
Bong’s Parasite storyboards show the director envisioned every shot from the beginning, allowing him to shoot in a tight 77-day production. We’ll soon get to see exactly what that vision was with the release of a graphic novel compiling the Parasite storyboards drawn by Bong, some of which have already been teased online ahead of the novel’s May debut. And this being the internet, someone has already whipped up a video comparing Bong’s Parasite storyboards and the final product that made it to the screen. See how Parasite went from storyboards to screen in the video below.

Following Ridley Scott’s acclaimed sci-fi horror sensation Alien, director James Cameron had the difficult task of following it up and somehow raising the stakes and upping the ante. As we all know, he was successful with the simply titled Aliens, and the sequel brought an ample amount of incredible action thanks to an unit of US Colonial Marines trying to ascertain what happened to a space colony on the moon LV-426. Now you can recreate the battle against the nasty xenomorphs from the comfort of your home with a new Aliens pulse rifle prop replica from Sideshow Collectibles. Read More »
We don’t own Baby Yoda. Baby Yoda owns us. And don’t count on owning a Baby Yoda Funko Pop, because the toy for the diminutive creature may be sold out before it even hits shelves. The Funko Pop for the character known as The Child from the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian is already the best-selling pre-order Funko Pop of all time, and there are still three months before it becomes available.

Attention, Star Wars fans! Pop culture artist Scott C. has delivered the ultimate print for everyone who was blown away by Star Wars: A New Hope.

More often than not, original artwork paying tribute to the movie focuses in one one moment or an overall representation of Star Wars in the style of an illustrated theatrical poster.
