Back in 1975, Steven Spielberg‘s surprise hit Jaws became the first summer blockbuster. The movie was not only a certified hit that people couldn’t get enough of, but it’s the quintessential summer movie. It’s the reason everyone associates the words “jaws” with the lethal sharks of the sea. And some of the credit for the pop culture phenomenon goes to the art of Roger Kastel, which you’ll be able to get your hands on today.
Mondo has announced that they are re-releasing the classic teaser poster featuring the great white shark charging toward the airbrushed silhouette of a swimming woman as a new screen print that has been completely recreated with the blessing of Roger Kastel himself. Read More »

Steven Spielberg is one of our greatest living filmmakers. While some may want to write the Jaws filmmaker off as nothing more than a purveyor of popular blockbusters, very few directors understand the language of cinema as well as Spielberg. While many filmmakers can’t block a shot to save their lie, Spielberg can convey an entire story wordlessly with his imagery. He’s one of the medium’s true masters.
Susan Lacy‘s new HBO documentary Spielberg takes a look at the successful filmmakers vast career, and we picked out 10 revealing facts from the Spielberg documentary that you should know. And then you should watch the doc for yourself, of course.

We’ve still got some time until the second season of Stranger Things starts streaming on Netflix just before Halloween. The brand new trailer that debuted at Comic-Con was good enough to hold us over for awhile, but we’ll take whatever we can get to whet our appetite.
That’s why we’re glad the official Stranger Things Twitter account is partaking in a promotional endeavor called #StrangerThursdays, where they rewatch each episode of the first season every Thursday (leading up to the second season premiere) and live tweet with cheeky posts, behind the scenes details about specific scenes and more. The coolest part of this lead-up is they kick off an episode by revealing a new Stranger Things poster inspired by one of the 1980s movies that influenced the show.
