Empire of the Sun

Since many Star Wars fans were saddened by the news of The Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner passing away, what better time than now for some cool fan-created art inspired by everyone's favorite space opera. This simple but brilliant collection of minimalist crossover posters featuring familiar characters and fonts takes some great movies from years past and gives them a new feel by relating them to the Star Wars universe. Designer Matthew Ranzetta only created five posters so far (hopefully more are on the way), but his take on movies like Rebel Without a Cause and Empire Records should bring a smile to your face.

Click on any of those to be taken to Ranzetta's blog where all five of the posters can be found. Thanks to our friends ScreenRant for the initial heads-up. If you're interested in buying prints of these, Ranzetta recently updated his post with all of the posters, stating: "I never anticipated people would show so much interest, let alone want them hanging on their own bedroom walls. So at the moment, I'm looking into the possibility of selling prints individually and as a set." You can email him for updates or follow his blog if you're desperate to get some of these printed, just like I am. Now I think it's now time to watch the original Star Wars trilogy.

Lol, this is far too neat.

@ Xerxex... one of the top 10 films of my childhood, easily in the top 50 of all time. On the other hand, it's kinda sad Ethan didn't post #5. If I see it in a store I'd steal it, just so I can hear my friend yell "SHOPLIFTER" till his voice cracked.

Scotty97 on Dec 1, 2010


Would buy that Empire of the Sun poster in a heartbeat.

Chris W on Dec 1, 2010


agreed Akirakorn, its the reason I'm a Balehead. @Chris W not if I buy it first!

The bad thing about mondo tees is I can never decide what I want to buy.

Al on Dec 1, 2010


^ Ummm these aren't from Mondo Tees! Though they're definitely of that caliber. I really hope Ranzetta prints them as shirts and posters, I want to buy a few of these too!
