The amount of work that Superhero Pop put into this video is insane, from the appearances of the characters to the pitch-perfect recreation of the 1980s. I’m kind of in love with this.
How do you appear in one of the biggest movies of all time without anyone, including the people who worked on the movie, knowing your name? You’d have to ask BoShek, the gloriously sideburned human hanging out in the cantina in Star Wars. For nearly 40 years, no one has known who played this character. Now we do.
The official Star Wars website just made our day, and we have to say thanks. StarWars.com posted an article full of vintage Kenner Star Wars toy commercials, and they’re just about the best thing ever.
Torn between the dark side and the light, Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was surely one of the more emotionally conflicted movie characters in 2015. But how to visualize that? Enter the characters of Pixar’s Inside Out.
Popeye is a character that has been interpreted in almost every possible way. The most popular though, is the lovable, animated version and that goofy, fun tone comes across in this brand new poster by artist Tom Whalen.
Admit it. The first time you watched the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you fell in love with the Frank Miller-inspired, armored version of Batman. I know I did, and now Hot Toys is making me drool with their latest creation.
Anyone who watched Nickelodeon growing up better take a seat. Jared Hess, the co-writer and director of Napoleon Dynamite, has just signed on to combine all of your favorite Nickelodeon characters in one massive, live-action animated hybrid movie.
“Wide Open” is the latest music video from the British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers. In this Dom & Nic-directed video, dancer Sonoya Mizuno (who many of you will remember from Ex Machina) slowly morphs into a synthetic version of herself.
The California College of the Arts is one of very few schools to offer an MFA in Comics. But if you’re just starting to make your own comics—or perhaps not quite ready to commit to a degree program—here’s a rad opportunity that anyone can take part in: a free online course that kicks off in February.
We never see it, but you have to think there’s propaganda art in the world of Star Wars. Be it the Rebellion, Empire, First Order or Resistance, it’s a simple, striking way to get your message across the galaxy. And if it is, artist Mike Kungl would be their go to guy.
The Lord of the Knights of Ren got swindled. It turns out the semi-melted helmet he opens his heart to in The Force Awakens isn’t Vader’s real helmet from his pyre on Endor in Return of the Jedi—and here’s the proof.
Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live last week and by far the most talked about skit was the Undercover Boss spoof featuring Driver as his Star Wars character, Kylo Ren. Now, SNL has released the skit’s flubs and outtakes, and they’re funnier than the skit itself.
Sure, the Millennium Falcon and X-Wing get most of the headlines, but the AT-AT is right up there in terms of truly iconic Star Wars vehicles. Few will ever forget the first time the imposing walkers graced the screen in The Empire Strikes Back and now, with this new poster, you’ll never have to.
When it comes to pop culture art, there’s a fine line between cute and annoying. Lots of artists turn characters or actors into non-threatening, sweet version of themselves but you can go too far. Jeff Victor doesn’t. And he tows that line by blending in a heft dose of nostalgia.
This is an incredible image: Titled ‘An anciente mappe of Fairyland: newly discovered and set forth’, it was created by Bernard Sleigh in 1917 as a comprehensive mashup of a whole bunch of fairy tales.
By Crom, it is good to see Conan the Barbarian as reimagined by the great fantasy artist Brom.
H.G. Wells has inspired people’s imaginations for a century. There’s not an art form out there that hasn’t been touched by his brilliant, fascinating stories like The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds, The Island of Doctor Moreau or, most famously, The Time Machine.
Once the Deadpool movie released those highly deceptive—and hilarious—posters which made the R-rated superhero action-comedy look like a tender romance, I knew an actual trailer couldn’t be far behind. It wasn’t.
A young boy’s imagination, a father’s skill with special effects, a YouTube channel, a book deal and now a major Hollywood motion picture. The tale of Action Movie Kid is pretty incredible.
Star Wars has long been a franchise that prides itself on its visual effects and The Force Awakens is no different. Director J.J Abrams expertly blended practical and digital effects to make a Star Wars film worthy of that legacy. And now you can really see his handiwork.
