This week on The Collision, we tried a little something different. Rather than talk about a few news stories, Dave Trumbore (@DrClawMD) and I (@MattGoldberg) decided to use the sad passing of Ray Bradbury and the release of Prometheus to talk about science-fiction. Specifically, we discussed what qualifies as sci-fi, and then we moved on to review Prometheus, which helped me realize the film was far more flawed than I originally thought.

I’m a movie poster dork and I always like seeing what various artists do when creating posters for movies they enjoy or are looking forward to. The folks at Phantom City Creative have done some pretty sweet work by creating three posters dedicated to the film’s of director Robert Wise: The Body Snatcher, The Haunting, and The Andromeda Strain. Each of their posters is limited to an edition of 113, measures 11×17, and costs $30 (plus shipping) or $75 (plus shipping) if you buy all three posters together.
Moving on, artist Sam Smith designed posters for his ten favorite films of 2010 and came up with some really stunning work. I particularly love his posters for Winter’s Bone and Toy Story 3. Finally, Lloyd Stas, whose work we featured last week when he designed posters for the work of Edgar Wright, has taken a stab at Duncan Jones’ upcoming film Source Code.
