Ever since Limited Paper kicked off back in June, we’ve gone out of our way to include “the little guys”: galleries that might not have the same instant name-recognition as Mondo and Gallery1988, artists that might not be as well-known as the Tyler Stout’s and Martin Ansin’s of the world, and so on. Mark Englert—whose artwork we name-checked in the first-ever Limited Paper as a “Thing Worth Getting Excited About”—certainly falls into that category: not only is the dude a relative newcomer to the screenprinted-poster game, but he’s also producing some of the best artwork (particularly GID artwork) currently available on the open market.
We’ve always been excited to share Mark’s work with you in the past, and today—for the first time ever—we’re proud to play host to the exclusive premiere of his latest piece, a screenprint created for the fine folks over at the UK’s LtDedition Gallery. Who the hell is LtDedition Gallery, what’s their new poster look like, and when can you get your hands on one? Find out after the jump, folks.
An adaptation of Stephen King’s It is moving from the television to the big screen, courtesy of director Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre). Fukunaga, who also wrote and directed the 2009 drama, Sin Nombre, will co-write the script with Chase Palmer. Known for the density of his books, King’s It weighs in at a robust 1,104 pages. Having said that, Fukunaga and Palmer plan to tackle the tale in two films (Palmer previously adapted Frank Herbert’s Dune for Paramount, at a much more manageable 544 pages). The plot of It centers on a group of loser kids who band together to defeat a mysterious creature who preys on children. Thinking themselves safe as adults, It comes back to test their mettle once again. Hit the jump for more on It.
I love me some minimalist posters. Part of the reason I dig them is that they have to be clever enough to distill a movie down into one distinct, esoteric image. Artist Nick Tassone has shown he is one clever gent by drawing up a magnificent set of minimalist posters for movie adaptations of Stephen King novels. My favorites among the bunch are for Misery, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Shining, but they’re all pretty great.
The posters are 12×18 and $30 a pop. All prints are signed and numbered. Click here to go buy ‘em. Hit the jump to check out all ten posters.
Over the past few days I’ve been posting “7 Days with Producer Dan Lin”. As I explained in the previous articles, I spoke at length with the Sherlock Holmes producer about not only his latest film, but everything he has in development. Since the conversation ran so long, I’ve decided to break up the interview into many smaller parts. I’ve already posted what he said about the Lego movie and Gangster Squad, as well as his thoughts on the Terminator Salvation ending and what’s up with future movies, and yesterday was about the Bone and Tom and Jerry movies. For today’s article, I’ve got him talking about the Justice League movie, Suicide Squad, Hiding in Time, The Chaser and Stephen King’s It.
