The work of pop culture artist Gabz has paid tribute to some of our most favorite movies of all-time. Previously, he’s tackled the original Star Wars trilogy and the Indiana Jones trilogy, both in the same style. But soon we’ll get to see a variety of different prints from the artist.
Gabz (real name Grzegorz Domaradzki) is getting a solo gallery show from Bottleneck Gallery and Grey Matter Art titled I Am Gabz!. The collection of new prints includes “a wildly ambitious mixture or prints and detailed originals from pop culture touchstones that have personally affected him throughout his life.” We’re proud to debut a few of his new prints that pay tribute to Captain America, Thor and Hulk, three of the original Avengers. Get a look at some of the pieces in the Gabz art gallery show below. Read More »
It’s crazy to think that there’s more than one Alien vs Predator movie out there. But did you know that the Predator and the Xenomorph faced even deadlier enemies in comic books?
Back in 1991, Dark Horse and DC Comics teamed up to have the deadly Predator face-off with the Caped Crusader himself in Batman vs Predator. Then, just a few years later, Superman came face-to-face with a Xenomoprh warrior in Superman vs Aliens. The results were two unbelievable comic book match-ups with epic action, and now they’re getting their own action figure two-packs from NECA that will be available as San Diego Comic-Con 2019 exclusives.
Check out the Superman vs Aliens and Batman vs Predator action figures below. Read More »

Last week, Sigourney Weaver was brave enough to head to the most feared part of the galaxy: New Jersey. The actress stopped by North Bergen High to say hello to the talented high schoolers who put on a pretty impressive stage production of Alien. Ridley Scott, director of the O.G. Alien film, as well as recent prequels, was so impressed when he heard about the production that he donated $5000 for an encore performance. It was that encore that Weaver showed up at, appropriately blowing the minds of the entire cast. You can see Weaver stopping by below, and you can also watch the full play, which North Bergen High uploaded to their YouTube page.
