Call Me By Your Name is officially getting a sequel, but not in the way you think. Author Andrew Aciman, who wrote the 2007 novel upon which Luca Guadagnino‘s Oscar-winning film was based, is penning a sequel book that is set to hit bookshelves this October. Aciman’s announcement of the Call Me By Your Name sequel novel, titled Find Me, comes after months of back-and-forth over whether Guadagnino plans to follow through on his promises to direct a film sequel. Perhaps the book could provide the inspiration to push Guadagnino into action.

Part man, part machine, all cop. That’s the tagline you’ll find on the original teaser poster for the 1980s favorite RoboCop. The poster is a classic, and any fan can immediately picture RoboCop stepping out of the Detroit Police car, the lights flashing bright red as your imagination runs wild with the prospect of having a robot police officer taking care of justice on the streets.
You might not have realized this, but that theatrical poster for the Paul Verhoeven movie wasn’t simply a touched up photograph. The original RoboCop poster was actually a painting done by artist Mike Bryan. Thanks to Justin Ishmael (the former head of Mondo who made the collectible art and pop culture shop the hotspot it is today) and the folks at Bottleneck Gallery, you can own a perfect recreation of the poster that takes the incredible image of RoboCop and gives it a nice shine with metallic inks. You can even get a RoboCop poster print that looks more like the original painting rather than the final poster. Read More »
Last year, Mickey Mouse celebrated his 90th anniversary. The cartoon rodent debuted in the black and white animated short Steamboat Willie all the way back in November of 1928, along with his lifelong companion Minnie Mouse. The short would kick off a legacy that still stands strong today as Disney has become a powerhouse not only in animation, but entertainment at large.
Now fans can celebrate the debut of Mickey Mouse with an official new LEGO set that brings Steamboat Willie to life in building brick form. The new set, which originated at the LEGO Ideas website, brings to life the S.S. Willie steamboat that Mickey Mouse steers in the animated short. And just like the animated short itself, this set and the accompanying Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse minifigures are in black and white. Check out the full Steamboat Willie LEGO set below.

Even though the Alien and Predator franchises have both gone in some weird directions over the years, their individual missteps pale in comparison to the insanity of the Alien vs Predator franchise. The war between these two interstellar species began in Dark Horse comic books back in 1989, and it came to arcades not long after in 1994. But sometime in the mid-90s, that battle almost came to video game consoles in a completely unexpected fashion: a cosmic football game. That’s right, there was almost an Alien vs Predator football video game set in the distant future. Find out all about it below. Read More »
Captain Marvel is only in its second weekend at the box office (which added considerably more cash to the movie’s haul), but it’s already a certified hit. Even though Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn are the stars, there’s one breakout character that fans can’t get enough of, and they’re not human. It’s Goose the cat, and the little feline is getting a pair of new Funko POP figures that fans of Captain Marvel are going to love. But if you want to see them, beware of spoilers. Read More »

When you think of the greatest film trilogies of all time, it’s easy to remember Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars. But don’t you dare leave out The Cornetto Trilogy. It might be a makeshift trilogy comprised of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, linked only by the fact that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star in all of the films directed by Edgar Wright, but thematically, they are an incredible trio of stories that are hilarious, bloody, twisted, and just plain great. Now you can honor The Cornetto Trilogy with a new trio of Mondo prints by artist Johnny Dombrowski. Read More »
