Posted by LiveFor on May 8, 2010

Gallery 1988 are having an exhibition of Twilight Zone inspired art and it looks like it could be epic.

More info on the Gallery 1988 website.

I love the one by Tom Whalen below from the episode “Nightmare at 20000 Feet.” The Shat is always good to watch.

Dune – A Special Edition of David Lynch’s film

Posted by LiveFor on May 7, 2010

Work is slowly moving on with a new version of Dune directed by Pierre Morel (Taken). However, a person by the name of Sasha Burrow has a project to revamp the David Lynch version (which I love) by giving it all new special effects. Kind of like the Star Wars Special Editions only with more love.

This is a project I have been slowly working on over the last few years with the goal of ultimately replacing many of the “outdated” special effects shots in David Lynch’s 1984 version of Dune.

The project initially began as an endeavor to build a “proper” ornithopter – one with flapping wings, that neither the movie or the mini-series managed to achieve. However, with the advent of the “fan-edit” the scope of the project has expanded with the goal of updating the effects in all those places in the movie where I feel things could be significantly “improved.”

Although I am currently working on this by Myself, it’s a large undertaking and if there is anyone interested in helping this project along, feel free to contact Me – We might actually be able to get this project completed with a few more skilled and enthusiastic people!

Let me tell you they have done an incredible amount of work. Diagrams, CGI tests, pre vis bits, mock up for DVD packaging and more. Absolutely incredible and one day it would be so good to see the updated version. Head on over to the site for more info on it. Good luck on the project.

Bruce Wayne is heading back to the present day

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010

For those who didn’t know, Bruce Wayne didn’t die he was simply sent back to caveman times by Darkseid’s Omega Beams. Don’t worry if that doesn’t make any sense. This is comic book excellence and you just go with it.

He has been rumoured to return and that finally begins to happen next week with issue 1 of Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne from Grant Morrison and Chris Sprouse.

This is the first of six time-hopping issues and starts in the caveman times.

Andy Kubert did the cover and it should be one hell of a journey.

CBR have a preview of the first image.

Tron Legacy – Is this the villain of the piece?

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010


This could either be some concept art for the forthcoming Tron Legacy film or video game, a costume for a generic Tron character / soldier, or maybe the bad guy of the film – apparently that will be Clu who is the avatar of Jeff Bridge’s character, Kevin Flynn.

Previous photos show the good guys have the blue light on their costume and the bad guys have the red.

Whichever it is I really like the look of it. What’s your opinion on it?

Hobo With A Shotgun – First proper look at Rutger Hauer and The Plague

Posted by LiveFor on May 4, 2010

The film tells the story of a vigilante homeless man (Hauer) who pulls into a new city and finds himself trapped in urban chaos, a city where crime rules and where the city’s crime boss reigns. Seeing an urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused prostitutes and even a pedophile Santa, the Hobo goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how – with a 20-gauge shotgun. Mayhem ensues when he tries to make things better for the future generation. Street justice will indeed prevail.

Director, Jason Eisener, had this to say about Hauer. “Working with Rutger Hauer is amazing,” he said. “I have to say, I was really intimidated at first because I’ve only worked with local actors. I’ve never worked with someone who’s had so much experience. We’re having a blast making this film.”

It also looks as if the Hobo will be hunted down by some Bounty Hunters known as The Plague and Nat Jones did this piece of concept art for them.

Iron Man 2 – Cool Tyler Stout poster

Posted by LiveFor on May 3, 2010

Just a lovely piece of art work. Finally got to see Iron Man 2 today and loved it. Lots of nods to the comic book fans and Tony’s use of what looks like Captain America’s shield is brilliant. Robery Downey Jr was born to play the role. Nice to see Sam Rockwell doing some of his Confessions of a Dangerous Mind dancing as well. As for Scarlett Johansson in the Black Widow catsuit…..Kerpow!

Shadowland – The battle for the soul of New York

Posted by LiveFor on April 28, 2010

As previously mentioned, Shadowland is a big Marvel event. Daredevil, who is now leader of the evil ninja clan, The Hand, is bringing them to New York and looks as if all the street level heroes of the Marvel U are getting involved. Check out the cool wrap around cover.

Shadowland will be a five issue mini-series written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Billy Tan. Apparently construction has already begun on the monumental fortress that will be Shadowland.

In these promo posters via CBR we can see The Punisher shooting Spider-Man in a very uncomfortable place, Iron Fist and Luke Cage having a face off with what appears to be Elektra and Ghost Rider smacking down Moon Knight. All very cool.

Design Challenge – Fight Club

Posted by LiveFor on April 24, 2010

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.
