New Posters From Comic-Con 2011!

Rolling Roadshow Poster Sale!

Jason Munn’s minimalist movie poster remakes from The Rolling Roadshow Tour are now on sale for $50 smackers. Get ’em while they’re hot!

(Btw, these copies for sale on Munn’s website are Artists Proofs with an edition of 30 each — if you’re into that kinda thang!)

Straw Dogs

ImpAwards has the new poster for the upcoming Straw Dogs remake. To paraphrase The Who, “Meet the new dog…same as the old dog!”

Gee, I wonder why they didn’t rip off the old French poster (below) — oh yeah, the MPAA wouldn’t dare touch a one-sheet with such prominent boobs!

Mondo + Movie Posters = $$$$

Movie poster trends come and go, but there is no doubt that the hottest new kid on the block is Mondo, the mates behind the Alamo Drafthouse, who have rejuvenated the morbid market with their revamped one-sheets designs for The Rolling Roadshow Tour from such graphic design prodigys as Olly Moss and Jason Munn.

So if you want to learn more about this newfangled limited-edition movie poster empire, check out Ben Marks’s interview with Mondo creative director, Justin Ishmael, on Collectors Weekly.

Let The Good Times Rolling Roadshow!

The Rolling Roadshow Tour — brought to you by the movie-loving mavens at Alamo Drafthouse — starts tonight, and the schedule features a big platter of Texas-themed classics. And the posters by indie rock fave, Jason Munn, look pretty sweet, too. (If you recall, British artist, Olly Moss, did the sheets for last year’s show).

Elizabeth Taylor Tribute

This Wednesday, we lost a legend in Elizabeth Taylor, so I thought I’d sign off for the weekend with this lovely AMC tribute done a few years back by her Cat On A Hot Tin Roof co-star/fellow humanitarian actor, Paul Newman

Elizabeth Taylor Dies

Elizabeth Taylor, one of Hollywood’s great golden beauties, has died at the age of 79. Known for her sexy screen presence and a tumultuous romantic life, most notably a torrid on-and-off affair with fellow actor, Richard Burton, Ms. Taylor spent the latter chapter of her life dedicated to many charity causes, including fighting AIDS. Long live the queen!

Scary Phones!

Who you gonna call? Sorry, wrong number! Here’s a terrifying line of some of the scariest (and not so scary) movie posters featuring telephones, including the French versions of Experiment In Terror (Georges Kerfyser) and Phone Call From A Stranger (Roger Soubie).

Wired Mag Hartts Movie Posters…

Wired Magazine has a fun mash-up by Sean Hartter of some fantastic sci-fi fantasy casting choices with modern actors taking on roles in past classics — and vice versa! (via APF)
