While a Zelda film from Studio Ghibli is highly unlikely, just looking at these movie posters by artist Matt Vince makes me feel like it’s already happened.
They are, in a word, stunning.
This morning, I saw a tweet by Alex Mullane that simply said:
“Dear Star Wars nerds, I *strongly* urge you to Google this, verbatim: A long time ago in a galaxy far far away”
As a Star Wars nerd, and because I can’t resist a good Google trick, I did so. I am now strongly urging you to do the same (or just click here and save yourself a few seconds). You’ll be glad you did.
I went Dark Side, natch.
If you didn’t stay up late to catch the premiere of the first Captain America: Civil War trailer, now is your chance to get caught up.
The trailer is available below and wow—is it awesome.
You Tube channel Digging Deeper takes a look at Joss Whedon’s Serenity and explains why the movie succeeds (as film – it wasn’t exactly a box office smash) across multiple genres.
I’m not sure I’d agree with everything said here, but I do think Firefly and Serenity were far more visionary than many people initially realized.
Check out the video below and feel free to share your thoughts.
As part of a promotional campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Japanese Nankai Rapi:t train service hopped aboard the hype train (quite literally).
The train runs between Namba Station in Osaka City and the Kansai International Airport. As you can see below, every single part of the train, from the exterior to the cabins, boasts an eye-catching Force Awakens-themed makeover.
Over the weekend, Vin Diesel announced via Instagram that his company One Race Films has started a TV division. They’re kicking things off with a TV series called Merc City that will focus on the mercenaries and bounty hunters in the Riddick universe. The post also revealed that director David Twohy is set to begin writing a new Riddick film script titled Furia next month.
If you’re looking for more Riddick, looks like you’re going to get it. Lots of it.
The crew of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower have spoofed Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a trailer that features hardware that’s almost as impressive at what we’ll see in the film. It’s also pretty damn amusing.
On that note, Mop Bucket BB-8 (MB-8) is my new favorite character.
You may have noticed that movie theater standees have become increasingly elaborate over the years. Some are even interactive. With that in mind, the Deadpool standee is exactly what we would expect.
Photographer Pawel Kadysz is in the midst of a humorous photography project focused on the daily life of Darth Vader. He notes:
This is an ongoing project, updated with one new photo every day. I plan to continue until the Episode VII premiere. And if I get really hooked up, for a whole year. That would be a hell of achievement.
As for the gear, I’m using a mirrorless Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark I with few M.Zuiko lenses and a cheap, amateur strobe. I’m not a professional photographer. Just an amateur with a will to learn and improve. The photos below are all selfies.
Artist Jason Edmiston has been making pop culture art–ranging from toy packages to art prints–for the last two decades. He’s especially skilled with creating movie posters, and he likes to use his dad as a reference model. He’ll snap a pic of his old man with the right lighting, posture and costuming, and he’ll use the resulting image to help create a unique piece of nerdy art.
