The first week in May will be bringing Avengers: Infinity War to theaters, but before that fans can return to a wild, weird fantasy world from the mind of Jim Henson in 1986.
In association with the Jim Henson Company and Sony Pictures Entertainment, Fathom Events is bringing the cult classic Labyrinth back to theaters for three days. Fans are encouraged to attend in costume for this event and presumably partake in the magic dance with David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King. Read More »
Passion and anguish, true love lost and mourned over oceans of time, unrequited love felt so strongly that it drives one to darkness and despair…ah, the horror of love. These sentiments may not appear in the glittery pink and red Hallmark cards littering your local supermarket, but in a year where del Toro’s strange and unusual love story The Shape of Water swept the Oscar nominations, this Valentine’s Day deserves something a little different, a little darker, a little more…gothic.
Gothic isn’t always spiderwebs and haunted mansions or that weird kid in the back of your classroom. From poetic bloodlust to loneliness so crippling you can almost feel your chest caving in, from Universal Monsters and Goblin Kings, from headless horseman to robots, the romances of this list take the phrase “it’s better to have loved and lost” to tortuous new heights. They embody the characteristics of a Victorian era genre full of mystery, desire, and the macabre, more tantalizing and real than a thousand shades of grey.

With the plethora of prints out there paying tribute to our favorite movies and TV shows, it’s always nice to have an artist whose style is uniquely their own. That’s why we love Dan Mumford so much.
We’ve featured plenty of Dan Mumford’s work before, but now he has a solo show coming to Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles this weekend with a whole new slate of pieces paying tribute to the likes of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Gremlins, Dune, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and more. Check out some of the Dan Mumford artwork below. Read More »
Say it with me: dance, magic, dance, the Goblin King is returning to our lives! This time, Jareth — the original Babe with the power of voodoo (over my heart) — will be casting his spell over readers of a new Labyrinth comic book from writer Simon Spurrier and artist Daniel Bayliss. The comic book series, titled Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, will explore the origin story of Jareth the Goblin King and how he came to reside over the titular mystical labyrinth.

It’s no secret that we here at /Film are big fans of Mondo and their very cool output of posters and collectibles. So we’re pleased to exclusively reveal six prints that the Austin-based company is bringing to San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Fans of Star Wars, Attack on Titan, Samurai Jack, Labyrinth, Beauty and the Beast, and 2001: A Space Odyssey who will be attending this year’s con will want to bring some extra cash (and probably a poster tube). Everyone else can still admire these beauties from afar.

Asking me to name my favorite artist regularly working for Mondo would be like asking me which one of my pets I’d rescue from a burning building first, but I do think Laurent Durieux is one of the most talented people working with them on a regular basis. Heck, I think he may be one the best pop culture artists working right now, period. After all, I did just buy his Bambi print from that big Disney art show.
And now, Durieux has made a poster for Labyrinth, one of the most beloved movies of the ’80s, and you can buy it tomorrow.

Johnny Depp‘s career has been in a bit of rut over the past couple of years. The actor’s now ex-wife Amber Heard recently came forward with abuse allegations, which followed a string of box-office and critical disappointments. Some were hopeful Black Mass would be a comeback of sorts for Depp, a return to the real world for an actor who has a history of playing characters like, let’s say, Mortdecai and The Mad Hatter. Black Mass was another disappointment starring the actor, but he’s lined up another biopic to headline. In Labyrinth, Depp will play the L.A. Detective who investigated the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
Below, learn more about the new Johnny Depp project.
