Those Retropolis posters feel sort of perfect for those old flicks, it has that grandeur and deco style we expect that wasn't actually THERE the first time, if that makes sense.  They feel like the idealized versions of our memories instead of the genuine article, which is great, since we build things up in our minds like that.  They're all very cool, I would love some of those on my wall (I'm digging the Gigantor poster, even though I'm not a big T-28 fan).

I think you captured that thinking quite well. I couldn't put my finger on it while looking at, but dayum that makes sense.

Horror Icons come alive in fan art

Quote
It's always refreshing to see new artistic impressions of our favorite horror all-stars. Here's a crazy collection from Hellraiser, Friday the 13th, Edward Scissorhands and others, dressed up in wild cartoon-style colors.

DeviantArt wizard thurZ was inspired by the dark pomp and personality of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Pinhead, Chucky, Edward and Leatherface in depicting their vibrant toon selves. The Brazilian artist gave each eye-popping portrait a serious treatment with a distinct tone and color palette taken from the famous fright films they were hatched from.

Put down the hatchet and enjoy!

Brad Bird Reveals Unreleased Hand-Painted Poster For The Incredibles

Quote
In addition to being a fun, thrilling superhero-led adventure, Pixar's The Incredibles is a beautifully crafted film. Without disguising the fact that its a CGI animated movie, the artwork in the film harkens back to the early days of comics during the pulp era, featuring strong-jawed heroes and beautiful, leggy dames. Just in terms of aesthetics matching themes it's one of the studio's greatest works, and just from a creativity point it's a spectacle, from the design of Syndrome's island lair to the shape and construction featured in the city during the battle against the robot in the third act. And now a lost poster has been unveiled that matches the film's artistry.

Brad Bird, who directed the Oscar winning film back in 2004, took to his Twitter account this afternoon and unveiled a beautiful piece of advertising artwork that was never released. The design was hand-painted by legendary poster artist Robert McGinnis, whose work - Bird points out - you would probably recognize from titles like Breakfast at Tiffany's and various entries in the James Bond franchise. Check it out below and join me in wondering why the hell it was never released before now.

Never heard of the guy. But looking at his art, I can see where Skottie Young gets a lot of his style from. Or maybe it's the other way around. Anyway, totally dig it.

This would look awesome as a full size poster hanging on my wall.

I could put this under the Pacific Rim thread, but as it says, this is just concept art and may never reflect what comes to the movie itself

Quote
Concept art can sometimes be a mixed bag. In many cases - particularly when it comes to big sci-fi or action adventures - the pieces can be totally mindblowing and cool, but it can sometimes turn to disappointment when the final cut of the film bares very little resemblance to that what was initially promised through illustrations. Only time will tell if that will be the case Guillermo del Toro and the upcoming Pacific Rim, but for now what we have are some pretty damn cool paintings.

In their latest issue, Total Film has unveiled two never-before-seen pieces of concept art for the giant monsters vs. giant robots blockbuster, and have been kind enough to release both of them online. The works were made by Doug Williams and seem to show two very different scenes from the film. The first is set in some kind of winter environment and is meant to really show the scale of the giant mech suits called Jaegers. Notice how the machine seems to be so far in the distance and yet still towers above absolutely everything?



Quote
The next image is something a bit more obscure and probably isn't recognizable to anyone other than those who are actually working on the film. The magazine, however, says that it's a "freaky Skull Temple thatís fused with its derelict urban surroundings." Hard to say if that's the official line from the studio, but let's just run with it...

I can't stop thinking about those beautiful Retropolis posters, and today on Gizmodo they posted some vintage travel prints on display at the Boston Public Museum.  I went to the Flickr page linked there (took about 40 minutes to get all the pictures) and they are SO gorgeous, you can see the influence that went into the Retropolis posters, definitely worth going through for inspiration and reference.

Alternative Movie Posters







Quote
Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground is the first book to take a comprehensive look at the spectacular art of underground film posters.

In an era of studio posters that endlessly rely on enhanced head shots of film actors, this book chronicles a network of designers reinventing film posters and bringing "the art" back to the one-sheet. This dynamic group of illustrators have reinvigorated the public's interest in film artwork, crafting stunning pieces for classic and cult flicks. Underground film posters sell out within minutes due to their limited quantities, and are now the most coveted posters by ardent moviegoers.

Alternative Movie Posters presents this eclectic medium through more than 200 posters from over 100 groundbreaking artists (hailing from 20 countries), coupled with fascinating commentary and behind-the-scenes information. With a smart, fresh visual perspective, Alternative Movie Posters celebrates classics like Star Wars, A Clockwork Orange, The Godfather and The Shining as well as cult favorites including The Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, Fight Club and Pink Flamingos.

Same here... it does not.

So I submitted a Request for Purchase. Since it's soooooo new, I think they will come back with it's too early to purchase.

Don't ask.... haven't figured out their purchasing plan on any material, except, I know they will not buy series DVD of any show currently in production.

By-the-by, go to the amazon link I provided... Several 'related' books they recommend.

My library doesn't have those either
