Most of our favorite sci-fi, fantasy or action films become our favorites because of their details. I’m talking weapons; iconic tools of destruction that are so damn cool we want to own them. Lightsabers in Star Wars, the Hanzo steel in Kill Bill, Robocop‘s handgun, pulse rifles in Aliens, Doctor Who‘s sonic screwdriver, Indiana Jones‘s whip, Ghostbuster proton packs, Freddy‘s claws. Iconic weapons are a huge asset to a classic pop-culture action film.
A new art gallery is opening in Los Angeles January 11 called the Hero Complex Gallery and they agree with that assessment. Their debut show is called Weapon of Choice. All the work is based upon pop culture weapons. Some are obvious, like the ones mentioned above. Others are more subtle, like a film noir femme fatale using sex as a weapon. But either way, the show looks incredibly gorgeous and /Film is honored to debut several of the works in the show.
The show has The Thing flamethrower by Craig Drake, Conan‘s sword by Joshua Budich, the No Country for Old Men bolt pistol by Scott Belcastro, Doctor Who‘s sonic screwdriver by Brandon Schaefer, Buck Rodgers’ ray gun by Laurent Durieux, and images from Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Kill Bill and much more. Check it all out below. Read More »
I’ve been very busy this week, but now I’m back and hitting the /Film trail in a big way. Just to clear my plate enough to get some more on there, however, I’m going to bring you my very own Page 2.
At the head of the post you can see a new still from The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. As well as Heath Ledger you can see Lily Cole and the really very amazing Andrew Garfield. There’s a new fan blog that seems to be posting every scrap they can, including scans from a French Magazine that let slip of some more images.
Countless more fragments of new news after the break. Come join me.
