The best posters of Comic-Con 2014

Much of the press from Comic-Con comes in the form of descriptions of moving images. Everyone wants to hear about the footage being shown in the cavernous Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center. But there’s so much more to the annual geek culture event, including plenty of great memorabilia releases, a slew of awesome comic art and panels (because what would Comic-Con be without actual comics) and some great film art, as well. Galleries such as Mondo, Bottleneck, Gallery Nucleus and even movie studios bring awesome poster releases to the event every year. To celebrate this explosion of art, we’ve rounded up the best and brightest of Comic-Con 2014’s movie poster selection.

Ron Guyatt Jurassic Park

Imagine how impressed your dinner guests will be when they pass by the chocolate fountain in the hallway and spy the Isla Nublar map hanging on your wall – complete with detailed information on where the Raptor and T-Rex pens are. “Is that an antique from a wealthy. erstwhile relative?” they’ll ask. “Why no,” you’ll say, “it’s a Jurassic Park-inspired print from Ron Guyatt.” And they will swoon. Guyatt’s work is simple, but dynamic, toying around with the imagery of famous films, television shows and video games alike. Targets range from Kung Fu Panda to “Scott Pilgrim” to “Tetris,” and each print is curiously affordable. Check out some of the movie prints for yourself:

FSR is usually steeped in high-mindedness and moral fiber, but there’s no reason not to highlight something as cool as LEGO versions of iconic movies scenes. Consider it a Friday distraction tucked between a review of the latest Todd Solondz movie and (spoiler alert) breaking news about a possible new Jackass movie. Somehow it makes complete sense. Especially because these images are undeniable. The fine folks at BostInno discovered this internet wonder – a series of sharply photographed movies scenes (from Hitchcock to Tarantino) done with LEGO figures. There’s a LEGO movie in the works, there are movie scenes done in LEGO and the snake of culture continues to eat its tail. Check out the images for yourself:

While the year isn’t even half over yet, it’s going to be a hard climb for anyone to topple the summer Joss Whedon is having. If The Avengers box office wasn’t enough to give him the best summer ever (it is), his co-writing and producing on The Cabin in the Woods might be the nudge to put him over the top with most fans. Whedon has a few projects in the pipeline (he wrote the upcoming In Your Eyes and is directing his take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing), but what if you need more Whedon right now!? Turn your eyes to the page, dear friend. Titan Books currently has three Joss-related offerings ready for your perusal. We took a look at them to give you the straight dope on whether they’re just for super-fans or if everyone can enjoy. After all, not everyone is a huge fan of Whedon. Indeed, personally, I’m at best 50/50 on the guy, finding serious flaws within some his work, absolutely loving some of it, and having not ever watched a good chunk of it. The following contains spoilers for The Cabin in the Woods and Joss Whedon’s career.

Even though today is a day that should come with rest, relaxation and no time spent on this website, I just can’t stop myself from sharing this with all of you. I have received many gifts in my day — including the gift or wordiness — but this box delivered unto me by the lovely Kayla Kromer takes the cake. It is a custom-made Borg Cube gift box, modeled after the famous ship of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame. As you know, I do love me some Star Trek, be it from the original series, the next generation or the most recent J.J. Abrams-led incarnation. So this struck a chord and made me feel all warm inside. And here’s the best news: if you have someone on your gift-giving list that also loves Trek and all her versions, Kayla has put together an easy-to-follow guide to making your own Borg Cube box. Just head over to Lounge Geeks and be crafty.

Excuse me if this seems like old news, but I like it so it’s happening. As you may have noticed, Disney’s winter hopes hang on the success of Joseph Kosinski’s big budget, CGI spectaculathon Tron Legacy. And they are marketing it appropriately so, with countless posters, banners and boutique shops in Las Angeles where you can buy yourself one of those fancy Daft Punk suits. They’ve even bled the digital revolution into other areas of pop culture, including the comics of Disney’s newly purchased venture, Marvel Enterprises. And while we’d usually scoff at such blatant cross-marketing, we can’t help but admit that the Tron universe version of Iron Man is a total badass, as are several other characters. See for yourself after the jump.

One of the best findings this site ever made was the pair of Freddy Krueger Nikes that were circulating a while back. If you’re both a movie fan and pay attention to what kicks you wear, this new discovery should also cause your blood pressure to rise just slightly. Don’t complain to your doctor that we didn’t warn you.

What if William Shatner had played Dare Devil in a 1970s exploitation flick? What if Alfred Hitchcock had gotten the idea for Halloween and made it with Kim Novak and Robert Mitchum? What if Mickey Rourke played Superman? These are the questions that haunt me in the moments just before I close my eyes to go to bed. Fortunately, someone else out there is even more obsessed with the possible worlds out there where Boris Karloff was Freddy Krueger (and the resulting movie posters).

It doesn’t matter if you’re this close to graduating, and you’ve finally “found yourself.” Unless you’re going to the University of Baltimore, you have to admit that your school doesn’t have the stones to create a class called “Zombie 101″ where you learn to survive a Zombie Apocalypse. If your brain gets eaten soon, it’ll be their fault. Because, yes, the University of Baltimore has created just such a class.

This is the kind of modern art the people can get behind. No squiggly lines over a solid yellow triangle. No toilets on walls. No six-year-old children pushing their political agendas. Artist François Vautier has taken every single frame from Blade Runner, turned a virtual camera on the images, and created something dream-like and haunting. In that sense, it’s a great companion for the film. Check it out after the jump.

If you’re anything like me, you probably watched the series finale of Lost in real-time on Sunday evening. It was an event not unlike the Superbowl for me. Luckily, there were also a few cool commercials.

So you’ve wondered what the characters from Lost would look like if they were on a Saturday Morning Cartoon? Well, wonder no more!

If there’s something truly wonderful about the dawn of the internet, it’s the sharing of unique experiences that would otherwise be lost in a sea of nothingness. This becomes most apparent when someone extremely creative makes a wonderful short and distributes it online. Such is the case with Pixels, a vibrant and fun little short from a French group called One More Production.

Saul Bass Lost Titles

These videos are — without a shadow of a doubt — the coolest damned thing I’ve seen all week. And as you know, I see some pretty cool stuff on average. The folks over at SuperPunch first linked up this pair of videos that take a Saul Bassian approach to the opening titles of two great geek properties — Lost and Tron.

SXSW Bumper starring Aimee Thomas

Earlier today I was directed to the Vimeo page of filmmaker Joe Nicolosi. You may have never heard of him, nor are you likely to have seen his work. However, I’ve seen his work. Over and over and over again. In the form of this excellent SXSW bumper video.

Just in case the fever generated by the newly released Iron Man 2 trailer has not worn off just yet, Paramount Pictures has released a set of images showing us what some of the in-theater marketing for the film will look like.

Ever wondered if Kate from Lost would still be hot as a Simpsons character? (Spoiler alert: she totally does).

We have been talking about posters from MondoTees for a while now, and for good reason. Their posters exist in two places – on my walls, and in the dreams of movie gods.

I was turned on to the folks over at TeeFury a few weeks ago, and I have visited their site every day since. Basically they have a community of graphic artists who design a t-shirt a day, and release them for a limited time. Seriously, their tees are only available for 24 hours, and then they are gone forever.
