Here’s the first trailer for James White, which marks the feature directorial debut of Josh Mond, who produced Martha Marcy May Marlene and Simon Killer. The film was a source of constant conversation at Sundance this year, where we all sadly missed every screening.
Much of the talk about the film centered on the lead performance from Christopher Abbott (Girls), and the first image we see of him in this trailer is of a guy who has been beaten up, but is still kicking. There’s more than a minor suggestion here that James White gets at least some of his problems under control, but not before we get to see Abbott display an impressive range of energy in the movie.

Paul Verhoven’s Robocop is one of those pop culture properties that is represented by a lot of posters. But, frankly, I think we’re probably okay with that. The film is awesome, a classic that is entertaining, subversive and worth revisiting again and again. Plus, it’s a franchise that proves if the original works, celebrate it, don’t try to do it over.
The latest poster for Robocop is by artist James White, aka Signal Noise, whose colorful, almost electric work you’ve probably seen on the site before. His take on this film is simple and iconic, and very of the ’80s era. Even with that, it still takes 10 different colors in the screenprinting process to make it pop.
Below, check out our exclusive reveal of James White’s Skuzzles Robocop poster, which will be released on May 29. Read More »
So much of today’s pop culture art is about the foreground. Actually, pretty much all of it is. That’s where the subject of the image usually resides and artists typically just service that. Which is why James White‘s solo show, Celscapes, is such a breath of fresh air. All the work has a subject, of course, but it’s more about the environment and setting than one particular central focus.
Celscapes opens Friday August 29 at the Bottleneck Gallery, at 60 Broadway in Brooklyn, NY with a reception from 7-10 p.m. It closes September 10. Below, check out a nice cross section of the James White Celscapes exhibit including pieces from Guardians of the Galaxy, The Shawshank Redemption, No Country for Old Men, Predator, The Iron Giant, He-Man, Scooby-Doo and many others.
