Okay Space Monkeys. Here is a new challenge for you.
Robocop and Dark City went well (at the time of writing I am still going through the latter. Will post them later).
Here is what you have to do for the next one.
You are a film poster designer and have been asked to put together a poster for a new film called Fight Club.
The only info you have about it:
- A loner with insomnia and a cool guy set up an underground fight club.
- They live in a strange dilapidated house.
- One of the men is not what they seem.
- A crazy woman keeps hassling them.
- They make soap and a large man with breasts joins the Club.
- Clubs spread around the country and turns to terrorism
It can be any genre, could be set in any place, any time and is yet to be cast – you can choose the actors and director
You have until 16th May.
From badly drawn mayhem to super slick graphic design, all entries are welcome. Remember even if it is bad only after disaster can we be resurrected.
Post your posters over on the Forum – the best ones will get shown on the site.
This is your life and it’s ending one minute at a time. Go and do something cool and creative.
I would say go and spread the word but you all know what the first rule of Fight Club is.
Go and create.

As you know the Robocop Poster redesign challenge recently finished (check out the posters).
Totally unrelated to that is this cool poster by the always excellent NinjaInk. Just thought I would share it.

The Live for Films Robocop Poster Redesign Challenge ended yesterday and I have been blown away by the results. I thought there would be a couple of posters. 3 tops. Instead there were 10 and all are excellent.
Whether it be a lovely professional look, cool casting, stupendous taglines (He’s made out of Fucking Metal is my fave) or just great fun all are brilliant and worthy to enter the LFF Hall of Awesome.
Have a good look at them all (check out the Forum where they got posted first with the designer’s comments) and have a go at the next LFF Poster Design Challenge – This one is for the film Dark City.
Hopefully for some of the future ones there will be celebrity judges.
Let me know which is your favourite in the comments.
By Steve the Designer.
By Danny Dickblood.
By Sloppy Sam.
By Agent Graves.

UPDATE: A few people have said that a week is not long enough so how about for the first one I make it until the 31st March?
I was going to say that this is based on the idea Warren Ellis has started over on his blog where he gives design challenges in the REMAKE/REMODEL thing. I’ve just taken the whole idea as I think it is so good. Hope that’s okay Mr Ellis.
Hopefully I’ll get at least one response. Fingers crossed there will be more and it can become a weekly thing
Here is the first one:
You are a film poster designer and have been asked to put together a poster for a new film called Robocop.
The only info you have about it:
-A policeman is gunned down by criminals
-A corporation take his body and improve it through the technology of the time to fight crime
-He has no memory of his past
-He has a gun in his leg
-There is an alternate technologically advanced policeman called ED-209
It could be set in any era and is yet to be cast – you can choose the actors and director.
You have until 31st March.
From badly drawn mayhem to super slick graphic design, all entries are welcome.
Post your posters over on the Forum – the best ones will get shown on the Live for Films website (all submissions are the property of the artist who did them, but having a go means you’re saying it is okay for me to post your poster on the LFF site – cheers).
Join the Forum here.
Spread the word and happy drawing.

The last we had heard about the proposed Robocop reboot was this it was pretty much dead in the water and Darren Aronofsky didn’t want to film it in 3D and had moved on to other things – the film Black Swan featuring Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman as ballet dancers who have a violent sex scene together and one of them may not exist.
Now STYD spoke to screenwriter David Self about the Robocop film.
“I’m still involved with it and Darren Aronofsky’s still involved with it,” said Self. “He’s making another movie right now (Black Swan), but we’re waiting for MGM, to sort things out since they’re a large corporation and it’s a situation where we have to be practical. We’re waiting to continue with them, we hope that that happens soon and we can get back to it soon.”
Will the new film be a sequel, prequel or reboot? Self explained, “It’s definitely not a sequel. It’s an origin story, it’s an origin to the original Robocop. So, it’s basically a ‘reboot’.”
Do you want a Robocop reboot? Who should play Murphy and what do you want to see in it?

Darren Aronofsky’s stop start work on the Robocop reboot seems to be in jeopardy by the money troubled MGM.
‘Nash’ from the RoboCop Archive spoke to Moviehole, stating that “ I’ve spoken with Phoenix Pictures [and] asked them about the status of ROBOCOP… they told me that the project is on hold. The problem is that Mary Parent, Chairperson of MGM, wants a 3D movie for the new ROBOCOP. But ,as you know, Darren Aronofsky is a real artist and he’s not interested in Gimmicks like,3D,CGI,Filming digital, he wants to do everything as real (organic) as possible just like The Fountain”.
I think Avatar has gone and stuffed up an awful lot of films as the studios suddenly see what 3D can do and the money a well crafted film can bring in. However, many filmmakers and movie goers still look on it as a fad. Plus it doesn’t necessarily fit all films.
Personally I would love to see Aronofsky’s take on Robocop, even though it will probably be nothing like the original. In this day and age of perpetual remakes surely that is a good thing?
