Product Placement Show

Within the world of film, there are so many elements created from scratch from wardrobes to weapons, vehicles to companies, and much, much more. Well, a new art show is highlighting those very creations as they have asked various artists to craft real advertisements for these faux products. The Product Placement group art show at Gallery1988 in Los Angeles runs from March 9, 2013 to March 30, 2013. The show features posters and advertisements for fictional products from television or film. There's pieces inspired by Aliens, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Mad Max and Star Wars. Look below!

Here's some art from the Gallery 1988 Product Placement exhibition (via SlashFilm and io9):

Product Placement Eternal Sunshine

Product Placement Akira

Product Placement Aliens

Product Placement O Brother Where Art Thou

Product Placement Wizard of Oz

Product Placement GoodFellas

Product Placement Batman

Product Placement Star Wars

Product Placement Mad Max

You can buy prints at show tomorrow when it opens in Los Angeles, and all the prints that don’t sell out on Saturday will likely go on sale Sunday March 10 at My personal favorite is the Lacuna Inc. poster, but I'm a sucker for anything related to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. That ad for the P-5000 Work Loader from Aliens is pretty damn great too though. I hope there's an instance where two women have to fight for the last print and one says "Get away from that, you bitch." It's also cool that some look like they belong in old magazines, others look like cheesy flyers from the mail. Pretty good?

IDC what you all say, I don't care for posters, but I want the Mad Max and Akira ones.
