dean deblois interview

The How To Train Your Dragon trilogy is coming to an end, and it will probably make you cry. No, not over Hiccup’s glorious new beard (though that is worth shedding a few awestruck tears over), but over the bold and life-affirming story of friendship between a boy and his dragon that director Dean DeBlois has been building for the past decade.

We spoke to DeBlois about How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, and how the third and final film of the DreamWorks franchise will explain why “dragons are no more.” And yes, we did ask about Hiccup’s beard. Read More »

How to Train Your Dragon 3 Trailer

The time has come for the How to Train Your Dragon franchise to end. But before it does, Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his Night Fury dragon companion Toothless have one more adventure to go on, and it could change both of their lives forever.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World takes us to a mysterious new place where there are dragons no one has ever seen before. One of them includes a sparkly, white dragon appropriately called a Light Fury, and as you can see in the first How to Train Your Dragon 3 trailer, Toothless is immediately smitten with this stunning creature.

HTTYD Netflix Series

How to Train Your Dragon fans may have to wait longer than expected for the next film in the series, but there are TV adventures coming to Netflix this summer. Dragons: Race to the Edge just got a premiere date and a teaser trailer that also seems to be more or less the show’s opening sequence, in which Hiccup and Toothless lead the charge to explore more of their world than ever before. One of the main tools aiding that task is an artifact called the Dragon’s Eye, which also looks like the coolest movie projector ever seen. Check out the HTTYD Netflix series teaser below.

Best Screenprinted Movie Posters of 2014

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.

That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »

TOOTHLESS ON TOP by Ryan Savas

Gallery Nucleus has once again teamed with Dreamworks Animation for an art show celebrating the company’s How To Train Your Dragon film series. The How To Train Your Dragon art was created as a tribute to the movies by artists on the film’s creative team, curated specifically for this art exhibit. While the show does have some beautiful original works of art, those are a bit pricey — so I wanted to showcase some of the more affordable limited edition prints they have released (available to purchase online). The piece above is my favorite from the series, TOOTHLESS ON TOP by Ryan Savas. Hit the jump to check out my favorite pieces from the How To Train Your Dragon art show.
