Over five years ago we featured a small batch of posters in a series called The Ones That Got Away. In the poster series, artist Fernando Reza and his Fro Design Company label created some awesome posters for movies that never came to be. Whether it’s because they got stuck in development hell or lost funding at the last minute, these movies simply never became a reality. The first series included posters for the likes of Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon and Orson Welles’ Don Quixote, and now a second series has been unveiled and made available for purchase.

Say what you want about Star Trek Into Darkness, but it’s had a lot of posters. Teaser posters, IMAX posters, character posters, the print campaign for the J.J. Abrams sequel has been incredibly extensive and diverse. Star Trek is such a vivid property, however, that there’s always room to go further.
One website brought together several up and coming pop artists to reinterpret the film with their own unique style. The results range from minimalistic and eye catching, to exaggerated and exciting. Others are realistic and lyrical. It’s a cornucopia of Trekkie goodness. Check them out below. Read More »
The upcoming found-footage superhero film Chronicle is a bit of a mystery. Peter recently saw some footage that he enjoyed, but found some problems with. The team behind it, including screenwriter Max Landis and director Josh Trank, is promising but unproven. Then there’s the plot, which centers on three high schoolers (Michael B. Jordan, Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell) who discover they have the superpower of telekinesis. Sounds great, but why the found footage angle? Overall, we just aren’t sure what we’re in for when the film opens February 3.
One really excellent thing being done with Chronicle’s marketing is a Tumblr page showing off officially licensed art inspired by the movie. One of the artists asked to participate, Fernando Reza, even made a yearbook for the fictional high school in the film and, much like the movie, it starts normal but doesn’t end up that way. Check out the yearbook art and more after the jump. Read More »
Most filmmakers have projects they want to make but never get around to. Maybe they can’t get the funding together, maybe they lose the rights or maybe they pass away. There are famous examples of this all the way through history from Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon and Orson Welles’s Don Quixote to newer projects like James Cameron’s Spider-Man, Tim Burton’s Superman and Peter Jackson’s Halo. The list goes on and on.
Artist Fernando Reza, who also did these cool TV Band posters, asked the question, “What If?” What if Stanley Kubrick finished Napoleon? What is Orson Welles finished Don Quixote? And he answered those questions with his new set of film posters called The Ones That Got Away; Four posters including those two aforementioned films as well as Alfred Hitchcock’s Kaleidoscope and David Lean’s Nostromo.

While fictional bands like Spinal Tap get all the love, others like The Beets, Jesse and the Rippers, Drive Shaft and Dr. Funke’s 100% Natural Good Time Family Band Solution are regularly shunned. That’s probably because Spinal Tap actually performs while the others are composed of actors or animations in well known television series, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t subtly celebrate their love of Doug, Full House, Lost or even Arrested Development with these clever concert posters by Fernando Reza. His Tuned In Series is now on sale and you can see all four prints and get links to purchase them after the break. Read More »
