With Alice in Wonderland still on its rampage of 3-D kiddie destruction do any of the new films coming out this weekend stand a chance to over throw the juggernaut? There are many contenders yet are they worth your money?
This first teaser poster for the nerdtastic film, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, was released this past week, March 17, on the official Scott Pilgrim vs. The World site. This is a pretty small look at what is to come from this video game/graphic novel/teen angst/musical nerd epic that will shock the world with its fun and interesting style. Directed by Edgar Wright, writer/director of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, which should be proof enough that this film will be a must see. Starring Michael Cera, Anna Kendrick, Chris Evans, and Brandon Routh, this graphic novel adaption should be expected to be in theaters this Fall.
It’s always a sad day when you find out that your favorite band will be breaking up. Copeland announced in October of 2009 that they would be splitting up, but not before they go on tour one last time. The best treat a band could give to their fans before they part is one last tour and The Farewell Tour was something that could not be forgotten. Luckily it was not a bitter break up that allowed their fans to see them one more time unlike some bands that just part ways leaving fans depressed. Copeland definitely did this for their supporters and to show the great admiration they had for them.
BAFTA (the British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards happened a little while back, but this artist, Travis Coburn, was chosen to draw up one of each best film nominees for this years BAFTA’s (Avatar, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Precious, and Up in the Air). These retro posters are pretty spiffy and I wish I was this cool to illustrate something like this, maybe if I had like a year to do it I could. You can see more of Travis’ work Portfolio 1 and Portfolio 2. Check the five out after the jump!

This is kind of old, maybe a month, but I figured it was still worth it to post because these are some pretty cool posters. These were for a benefit for Haiti in February that had Upper Playground and The Weinstein Company team together to throw this gig. A bunch of artists came together to create this interesting art pieces that were their interpretation of the film. All the proceeds went to the American Red Cross to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake. You can check out all the posters after the jump!
A few new posters have been released for Kick-Ass and Toy Story 3. The Toy Story 3 poster you can thank the PixasBlog for and the Kick-Ass posters are courtesy of MTV. They are some pretty interesting designs with some great tag lines. You can check out a great character poster full of all the new and old toys from TS3 after the jump along with a fun Kick-Ass poster!
Sometimes, graphically, it’s best to just go as simple as possible. These fun graphic portrayals of some of the best shows on television past and present that were created by graphic artist Albert Exergian. Visually simplistic, yet fun, Albert has concocted just a little slice of what the show is about displaying it in the best way possible. Shows like Mad Men and The Simpsons are just a few of them and you can check them out below. You can see a lot more if you go to his website, Blanka, and purchase them as a poster for just £50.00. After the jump you can see a good collection of some of them!
