If you're not venturing out to catch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer this Friday, or waiting in line for ridiculous bargains, then you may want to be near your computer in order to grab Mondo's latest print, their first one honoring Quentin Tarantino's modern classic Pulp Fiction. Yes, believe it or not, this is the first time Mondo has released a print with artist Laurent Durieux commemorating the film. The print is chock full of references to various characters and events from the movie, and the good news is that you'll have a much easier time getting ahold of one than you normally would with Mondo's releases. Look below!
This week brought our first look at the forthcoming comedy Get Hard starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, and it shows the latter comedian attempting to turn the former into a tough guy so he's prepared for prison after being convicted of a white collar crime. But the first poster for the film shows us something that we didn't see in the photos, and that's Ferrell getting cornrows in his bushy hair, courtesy of Hart. For those anxious to see how this comedy looks, the first trailer arrives next Tuesday evening, so stay tuned to see if Hart teaming up with Ferrell actually results in a solid comedy with big laughs. We're hoping for the best.
It's been over a year since we heard any solid news on Spike Lee's indie Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. In fact, the last time we wrote about the project, it was just rounding up funding on Kickstarter and it didn't even have a title yet. Now the film has just been picked up by Gravitas Ventures for release early next year, and the first teaser poster has arrived along with the official plot. The film is described as a reinterpretation of Bill Gunn’s horror cult film Ganja & Hess from the 1973 Cannes Film Festival and focuses on an addiction to blood that once doomed a long forgotten ancient African tribe, and it all begins with Dr. Hess Green (Stephen Tyrone Williams), who is introduced to a mysteriously cursed artifact by an art curator.
Though we didn't get a film from Pixar Animation this year, thankfully Walt Disney Animation still brought us Big Hero 6 this month. But next summer, the computer animation giant returns with Inside Out, a story that takes us inside the mind of a little girl dealing with her new home in San Francisco. Inside the mind of Riley, we meet all of her emotions driving her life: Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). Now they all get their own colorful close-up, character posters. This means there could be a new trailer on the way sometime soon. Look below!
Today is better the second time around. If only everyone could time travel... Paramount has debuted the latest trailer for Project Almanac, the kick ass found footage time travel film that feels like an as-good-as follow-up to Chronicle. This time, a group of high school kids invent a time travel device and start to use it for their own desires. This film was once called Welcome to Yesterday and we ran the trailer a year ago when it was set for release in 2014, but it has since been rescheduled for early 2015. I saw the movie at Comic-Con 2014 and really enjoyed it (my full review). I recommend it especially if you're a sci-fi geek who loves anything with time travel (they even joke about Looper in the movie). So fire up the new trailer below.
As we head deeper into the 2014 awards season, more and more films start to hit cinemas all over, flooding the market with any and every possible contender. Which ones stand out? This one, to start with - Xavier Dolan's Mommy, the Quebecois filmmaker's fifth feature film that premiered at Cannes (my review) and played in Telluride and Toronto. It's Canada's officially entry into the Academy Awards and for good reason - it's one my favorite films of this year. Antoine-Olivier Pilon, seen below, stars as Steve in Mommy, a violent teenager who is sent to live with his mom, played by Anne Dorval, as they try to their feet back on the ground. Three gorgeous posters, square like the film's 1:1 aspect ratio, have debuted and we must share.
In just one week, fans will finally be able to see the beginning of the end with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I hitting theaters. But you might remember that over the summer, before the first teaser trailer had even debuted at Comic-Con, there was a cool propaganda poster designed by artist WK Interact. Well, to round things out, Lionsgate had him create one last piece for the film, and this time the Mockingjay herself, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has been immortalized on the new guerilla graffiti style poster. We're not sure if they'll be handing this out at screenings or what, but check it out!
Though there are plenty of people out there who have some discrepancies with Christopher Nolan's sci-fi drama Interstellar, one of the more unanimous points of praise has been for the block robot TARS and his colleague CASE, both of which assist Matthew McConaughey on his mission to save the planet. The robots are fitted with incredible artificial intelligence which allows them to have a sense of humor and even a judge of how honest to be (though it's all regulated by the astronauts themselves). Well, Vulture liked the robots so much that they imagined what it might be like if TARS was a movie star, and it's great. Look now!
File this one under "Classics". Odd City Entertainment has debuted some impressive artwork for a new print they're selling next week for the legendary cinema classic The Godfather. This new print by French artist Laurent Durieux is specifically for The Godfather: Part I (does that mean he'll be releasing Part II and maybe III eventually?) but is being sold in full-size 24"x36" screen prints which I'm sure will look beautiful in person. They're selling 325 prints of the regular edition for $65 each, and 150 prints of the red variant edition for $100 each. Even if this isn't your favorite film of all-time, it's still worth taking a look at the art.
Which side do you fight for: the Horde or the Alliance? With BlizzCon down in Anaheim kicking off today, Blizzard has started the marketing machine for the upcoming Warcraft movie directed by Duncan Jones (of Moon, Source Code). There was an early preview of footage at Comic-Con in July, and we expect there to be a big tease at BlizzCon this weekend, but in the meantime a batch of new posters has debuted in the form of choosing your side. This is exactly the kind of marketing they need to launch, because the entire story really is Horde vs. Alliance, and they're going to be playing that up right from the start. The two posters connect to websites where you can sign-up for your allegiance and display their emblem everywhere online.
About a year and a half ago, we learned from Insomniac Games that they are turning the PlayStation video game series Ratchet & Clank into an animated feature film. The film arrives sometime next year, though we don't know when, and the first teaser poster for the movie has just arrived. Basically, it looks just like a cover for any video game that might have been released, and it doesn't even clarify that this is for a movie. I'm not sure this is going to be something cool for anyone who doesn't like the video games, mostly because this looks exactly like the video game in style and execution, but it's popular, so maybe that's all it needs.
The first featurette for Disney's forthcoming holiday release Into the Woods finally showed off the musical side of the Broadway adaptation on the big screen, and now we get a closer look at the fairytale characters who come together in the spooky forest, as directed by an old witch to make their most desired wish come true. Moviefone has just unveiled a series of cool motion posters for each of the main characters in the film played Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine and more. There's even a character that we hadn't seen yet. It's just a shame that these posters don't sing too. Look!
Oh boy, what will Lars von Trier say about this? A promotional poster has debuted online for a project in the works by controversial Argentinian director Gaspar Noé, who last challenged audiences with the ambitious film Enter the Void. This time he's going all out sex, in a film called Love that seems to be inspired by Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac meets Abdellatif Kechiche's Blue is the Warmest Color. Described as a "sexual melodrama" about a boy, and two girls, the film "celebrates sex in a joyous way." But of course, it shouldn't be celebrated any other way! It's a very enticing, raunchy design, I wouldn't expect anything less from Noé.
The mission is ready for launch. This is the week we've been waiting for, where Christopher Nolan's highly anticipated, long-awaited sci-fi Interstellar finally lifts off. To celebrate the release (which hits three days early on 70mm/35mm film) IMAX has commissioned an exclusive poster they will be giving out this week at select IMAX showings. The minimalistic poster art is designed by Kevin Dart (his website) and utilizes the visual of a spaceship launching from Earth to find a new home. It's a subtle yet beautiful poster and I can't wait to get my hands on one. I just hope they're giving them out starting Tuesday night, too. Full view below.
