Tom Hiddleston to Star in Ben Wheatley’s HIGH RISE; Filming to Begin in June

by     Posted 316 days ago


The adaptation of J.G. Ballard‘s High Rise has been stuck in development hell for years, but last year, Kill List director Ben Wheatley signed on to become the project’s latest director.  The 1975 novel “takes place in a tower block, which is supposed to be a gleaming new, exciting and exotic home for its affluent residents, but ends up isolating and factionalizing them into all-out war, with the surface sophistication degenerating to primal savagery.”  Today, Wheatley announced on his Twitter page that production will begin in June, and the film will star Tom Hiddleston.

Hit the jump for more including a cool promo image Wheatley tweeted.

by     Posted 1 year, 247 days ago

With the Criterion Collection’s Repo Man on the verge of being releases, we’d been expecting a Jay Shaw print to drop any minute, one to match the design he created for the film’s cover box…and that print did just get announced.  But did anyone expect the other Repo Man poster Mondo’s dropping later this week?  Just weeks after unleashing a slew of new Tyler Stout prints at the Mondo Gallery’s Stout & Taylor show, Tyler Stout’s Repo Man gets announced.  You as shocked as we were?  Think about it while you check out the specs on this week’s Mondo prints, after the jump…

We’ve just about made it to Mondo’s Universal Monsters gallery show—their biggest show ever, opening this Friday and playing home to nearly 20 posters and 50-plus originals (according to Mondo’s creative director, Justin Ishmael, at tonight’s 3D screening of Creature From The Black Lagoon)—but that doesn’t mean all of Mondo’s other business has been put on hold.  In fact, they’re going to be dropping the remaining prints from their recent New York Comic-Con appearance tomorrow morning.  Wanna know what’s going on sale, what it’ll cost you, and what it looks like?  Meet me after the jump, folks.

If you’re a Mondo fan and headed to New York Comic-Con this weekend, I strongly advise you to get to the con when it opens Friday morning at 9:30am.  That’s because even though most assumed Mondo would release their prints like they did in San Diego (one at a time), I’ve learned that when the doors open, everything is for sale!

But it gets better.

Late tonight, as the convention was closing, I was able to take pictures of everything at the Mondo booth!  If you’ve been wondering what would be sold at NYCC, Mondo has prints for Shaun of the Dead, Lord of the Rings, The Iron Giant, Phantasm, City of the Living Dead, Kill Bill, The Foghorn Leghorn, and Friday the 13th Part III 3D!  In addition, a number of these prints have variants.  Hit the jump for a ton of images and artists info.

Another busy day in Poster World, folks:  at some point today, Mondo will drop three more of its Fantastic Fest posters on a not-so-unsuspecting populace.  Kilian Eng’s Alexander Jodorowsky’s Dune and the one-two punch of Jay Shaw’s Beyond The Black Rainbow and Wrong will hit the Mondo website in a matter of…what, minutes?  Hours?  There’s no telling—you’ll have to wait for the Tweet to find out—but while we’re waiting on the drop to occur, why don’t we take a closer look at what’s dropping today?  It’s all after the jump, my fellow poster-nerds.

Limited Paper: Gallery 1988 Reveals the Full Lineup for New Gallery Show Featuring Jay Shaw, Josh Budich, and Jeff Boyes

by     Posted 2 years, 136 days ago

Earlier in the week, we ran a brief preview about Gallery 1988’s latest show, a “three-man solo show” featuring new art from Jay Shaw, Jeff Boyes, and Josh Budich.  At the time, we shared about half a dozen pictures, bringing you what may or may not’ve been your first look at Shaw’s Klute and Invasion of The Body Snatchers, Budich’s Sorceress and Tetsuo, and—last but not least—the one-two punch of Boyes’ Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind and The Wolf Mobile (based on the original Teen Wolf).  Those pics were all great, to be sure, but they did leave us a little wanting…but all that’s over now.

Wanna see every other print that’s on sale via the good folks at Gallery1988?  Meet me after the jump, folks (and be sure to bring your wallet).

Mike Mitchell's ADVENTURE TIME and Jay Shaw's MIMIC slice

Well, folks, here we are:  the end of Comic-Con 2012.  The booths are being disassembled, the nerds are flocking to the exits, booth-babe pictures are being stored on hard-drives, and poster-tubes packed with sweet, sweet limited-paper goodness are being carried triumphantly from the San Diego Convention Center.  What screenprints were we able to score before fleeing the SDCC for the safety of the San Diego airport?  Oh, nothing special:  just a few more awesome Mike Mitchell pieces from Mondo’s ongoing Adventure Time series and a Jay Shaw print autographed by none other than Guillermo del Toro.

Read all about ‘em after the jump, my fellow poster-geeks.

Limited Paper Mondo Mystery Movie X Announced, A Distant Winter Phone Booth Gallery slice

As you’ve probably noticed, movie-poster collecting has turned into a Ron Burgundy-sized “Big Deal” over the past few years:  everywhere you look, brilliantly talented artists like Aaron Horkey, Tyler Stout, and Ken Taylor are joining forces with places like Gallery 1988IAm8Bit, and the newly-opened Mondo Gallery to create collectible, gorgeously-rendered works of art based on your favorite movies and TV shows, and every time one of these posters drops…a poster-collector is born.

And where do we–the die-hard paper-geeks of the world– go for our news?  For our drop announcements?  For interviews with our favorite artists?  For reckless rumor-mongering about upcoming events?  Last week, we unveiled Limited Paper, a new ongoing series here at designed to keep everyone from poster-collecting veterans to poster-collecting n00bs up to speed on just those issues.  Want to know what’s new in the limited paper world this week?  Meet me after the jump, folks.
