Coming off the tremendous success of their Disney gallery, Mondo will be following it up with another big show.  This one will focus on sci-fi, fantasy, and horror with a bent towards emulating classic movie posters.  The artists handling the work will be two of my personal favorites, Kevin Tong and Martin Ansin.  The films they’ve chosen to do include Psycho, Flash Gordon, and Alien as well as more recent stuff such as Prometheus and a variant of the poster for Hannibal.  Unsurprisingly, these posters are gorgeous (I’m particularly enamored of Kevin Tong’s poster for Psycho) and will likely be snapped up in a heartbeat when the gallery opens on Friday.

Hit the jump to check out the posters that have been released so far.

Toy Fair at the Javits Center in New York City is absolutely enormous.  There’s 412,000 net square feet of exhibit space and a whole section of it is devoted to action figures alone with high quality collectibles from Star Wars, The Walking Dead, Alien, Godzilla and so much more.

Dark Horse had a slew of Marvel Classic items on display, a bunch of Game of Thrones characters and even a bust of Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) from Grimm.  Kotobukiya came with loads of stunning Marvel designs including their April 2014 release, Nightwing, and also a Batman: Arkham Origins piece, but there’s still no debut date for that one.  The McFarlane Toys booth was loaded with Walking Dead characters with a 10-inch Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) as well as a statue of The Governor’s zombie fish tank.  Catch all of that and loads more after the jump.

WonderCon: New Images and Info on the Kenner ALIEN Action Figures Being Sold Later This Year by Super7

by     Posted 1 year, 23 days ago

Back in the late 70s, Kenner, the same company that made the original Star Wars figures, designed 3 ¾” action figures for the original Alien.  At the time, Kenner thought Alien would be a big hit and the figures might be another Star Wars.  They thought wrong.  Shortly after they released a 12″ Alien figure, which barely sold, Kenner decided to kill the 3 ¾” toy line and the figures never saw the light of day.  However, the prototypes eventually leaked into collectors hands and they were the types of figures everyone always wanted but could never own.

Until now.

Later this year, Super7 will be releasing new action figures based on the original 33-year-old prototypes and will use them to help make these “lost toys” a reality.  Like all the toys from the 70s, the figures will be loaded with five points of articulation, accessories, and period-authentic blister card packaging.  Included will be Ripley, Ash, Dallas, Kane in Nostromo Suit and the Alien.  Hit the jump for more info and images.

Ridley Scott Refused to Do an Extended Cut for PROMETHEUS Blu-ray; Jon Spaihts Reveals Details about His Original Script

by     Posted 1 year, 194 days ago

prometheus-slice

One of the most frustrating things about Prometheus is its potential.  There are simply too many plot holes (which, admittedly, I didn’t notice when I saw the film; I was wrapped up in the visuals, performance, and strength of Ridley Scott‘s direction).  The fact that the marketing for the Blu-ray has had to be “Questions Will Be Answered” is preposterous.  This isn’t Lost.  This is a movie, and either the questions should have been answered or they should purposely be left ambiguous.  Looking back on Prometheus, I’ve wondered if the more fulfilling picture is out there either in a director’s cut or in screenwriter Jon Spaihts‘ original script.

Hit the jump for why we won’t be seeing the director’s cut, but we can learn a bit more about what Spaihts intended before screenwriter Damon Lindelof came on board.  Prometheus hits DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D Blu-ray tomorrow.

Another day, another Limited Paper filled with reasons to deplete your bank account’s bottom line.  Last time, we offered up a super-sized batch of reading material, one filled to the rafters with new prints by Brandon Schaeffer, Tom Whalen, Laurent Durieux, Jason Edmiston, and more.  Today, we’re back with a slight less super-sized edition of your preferred Collider.com column.  But don’t worry, there’s still much for us to discuss, including Mondo’s just-released poster for The Goonies, Tomer Hanuka’s just-released Vertigo poster, and blah.

Meet me after the jump for all that and more, my fellow poster-fiends.

Comic-Con 2012 kicked off several days ago, but so far there seems to be no indication that the tidal wave of awesome screenprints is anywhere close to slowing down:  so far, we’ve seen a jaw-dropping Princess Mononoke print from fan-favorite Olly Moss, an absolutely amazing piece of The Dark Knight Rises-related artwork from comic book superstar Jock, and—earlier this morning—Mondo released one of their most highly-anticipated posters of the year:  the latest entry in their Universal Monsters series, Creature From The Black Lagoon.  But there’s plenty more to come, and today’s other trio of releases proves that the gentlemen at booth #437 still have plenty of tricks up their sleeve.

Wanna see the three new Mondo posters that dropped at Comic-Con today, along with an enormously impressive piece of Alien-related artwork from Mark Englert?  Sure ya do.  Meet me after the jump, my fellow limited-paper enthusiasts.

We’re only 24 hours or so into the 2012 SDCC, and already Mondo – the movie-poster producing arm of Tim League’s ever-expanding Alamo Drafthouse brand—has caused quite the stir:  last night’s archive sale put a slew of Avengers posters into the hands of eager fans who’d been unable to catch them during their drop dates, and today the company unveiled three new posters—for The Dark Knight Rises, Princess Mononoke, and HBO’s Game of Thrones–  that resulted in the kind of sprawling lines usually associated with theme park rides.  Want to see Mondo’s latest, and hear about what it was like on the frontlines?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

Book Reviews: THE BOOK OF ALIEN and PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM

by     Posted 1 year, 311 days ago

book-of-alien-prometheus-art-film-slice

Every film fan should own at least a couple “Making-of” books.  These books might not meet the sheer wealth of material the special features DVD or Blu-ray can offer, but they can make great reference material you can pull off your shelf at any time or have sitting on your coffee table if you just want to kill some time and look at some gorgeous concept art.

The best making-of books offer an excellent blend of informative material coupled with high-quality images, and with the release of Prometheus, two new making-of books have hit shelves:  The Book of Alien and Prometheus: The Art of the Film.  One is an example of how to a making-of book wrong, and the other is an example of how to do it right.

Ridley Scott Talks PROMETHEUS, Viral Advertising, TRIPOLI, the BLADE RUNNER Sequel, PROMETHEUS Sequels, More

by     Posted 1 year, 324 days ago

ridley-scott-prometheus-slice

No matter how much time you get with director Ridley Scott, it’s never enough.  After all, you could spend an entire interview discussing the original Alien, Blade Runner, or his under-appreciated gem, Kingdom of Heaven (specifically the director’s cut with forty additional minutes that completely changes the film).  So when I got to participate in a roundtable interview with Scott yesterday in London for Prometheus, his first sci-fi movie in thirty years, you could say I was a bit excited.

During the twenty minute interview, Scott talked about how Prometheus came about, it’s relation to the original Alien, the viral marketing, technology, his fascination with robots and artificial intelligence, and so much more.  In addition, Scott talked about other projects like Monopoly, the Blade Runner Sequel, what ever happened to Tripoli and what it was about, and reveals that he already has ideas for the Prometheus sequel, assuming he gets to make one.  Hit the jump to either read or listen to the interview.

Damon Lindelof Talks Turning an ALIEN Prequel into PROMETHEUS, the Viral Campaign, Revealing Too Much in Trailers and More

by     Posted 1 year, 344 days ago

damon-lindelof-prometheus-slice

I can safely say that Prometheus is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films of the year.  Beyond the fact that it marks a return to the sci-fi genre for director Ridley Scott and is related to his classic horror film Alien, it looks unbelievably cool.  By now most people are familiar with the fact that the project originated as a direct prequel to Alien, but when Damon Lindelof was brought onboard to work on the screenplay it morphed into an original story that has ties to the Alien universe.

On the heels of 17 new images from the film yesterday, EW has now unveiled an extensive interview with Lindelof in which he addresses exactly how the film changed from a straight prequel to a separate story, how the excellent viral campaign came about, trying not to reveal too much in the marketing material, and he comments on how the title of the film is tied into the story’s themes.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
