There’s zero empirical evidence to back up the theory, but here at Limited Paper we tend to think that there aren’t a lot of hard-core collectors out there with big Valentine’s Day plans. Quite frankly, when the vast majority of your spending money is being pushed towards one fancifully-colored 24x36” sheet of paper after another, there isn’t much budget left for schmoozing the ladies (or the gents, if that’s your thing). Sure, you could’ve bought her that diamond-encrusted toaster she’s always wanted, but there’s something like 400 prints dropping this week: one has to prioritize.
But what if you have a significant other…and they’re also into poster collecting? Well, good news, buddy: Bottleneck Gallery’s Get a Room (opening in NYC this Friday) is filled with a ton of romantic, movie-themed posters your guy or gal will be jazzed to have hanging on their wall, and we’ve got preview pics for you (including new work from Craig Drake, Godmachine, and Cuyler Smith) after the jump.

In last week’s “Top 5″ I spent the opening paragraph musing about my anticipation for Steven Soderbergh‘s Haywire. I also promised the readers a quick “Before & After” discussion this week which would address whether or not the pic lived up to my expectations. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but said discussion will have to be postponed. I know, I know, I’m disappointed too. Fear not, though, I’m slated to check out the film tonight which means that I’ll be able to deliver on my promise, albeit a week late. In the meantime…
…This week’s “Top 5″ installment brings you interviews with the cast of Underworld: Awakening and the aforementioned Haywire, a gallery of recent films in retro poster form, an ultra-disturbing Rugrats live-action trailer, and all of our Sundance 2012 coverage to date. Hit the jump for a brief recap and link to each.
Classic films are getting remade left and right, but what if it went the other way? What if our original films of recent years were thrown back to an earlier era? Who would star? Who would direct? What would the poster look like? Artist Peter Stults ran with that idea and came up with some wonderfully creative and thoughtful posters based on recent movies. I’m not sure if I see Leonard Nimoy as John McClane, but I can absolutely see James Dean starring in a 1950s version of Drive.

If you look over producer Kevin De La Noy’s resume on IMDb, it’s kind of awesome. The reason is he’s worked on movies such as The Princess Bride, The Dark Knight, Braveheart, The Fifth Element, even Saving Private Ryan. While his job titles have ranged from location manager, production runner, producer, and assistant director, he’s still been involved in some of the biggest movies over the last two decades.
Anyway, when I got to visit the set of Clash of the Titans outside of London last August, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with De La Noy. During our extended interview he talked to us about why they wanted to remake Clash, the use of CGI versus practical effects, how they were filming around the world, and he explained the secrets of making a big movie come together. If you’ve ever wanted to work on a big Hollywood movie, you should start by reading or listening to what Kevin De La Noy’s had to say about Clash of the Titans. Hit the jump to check it out:
