Do you have a swanky pad and want to decorate your digs with some ‘Star Wars’ stuff, but don’t want to have the general action figure and posters lying all over the place? Well, why not get an cool photograph of an iconic vehicle from ‘Star Wars’? Its both geeky and artistic and girls (and boys) would be mighty impressed. Berg Studios (an independent UK based studio) recently released two limited edition prints of a neat photograph of the Millennium Falcon and X-Wing. Limited at 100 prints worldwide, these giclees are printed on Hahnemuhle photo rag fine art paper (420mm x 594mm / 16.5″ x 23.4″) and come unframed (even though they are displayed in frames, which is real bullshit when I come across that kind of stuff). Berg Studios has these prints on sale through “Editions of 100″ (@editionsof100) and will cost you £60.00 (around $97 USD), plus shipping internationally. Even though these are quite expensive, I really think these would look pretty bad ass in my living room. What do you think? Too bad they didn’t make one for an AT-AT or Slave One. I would love something Empire related.
Holy shit. This is pretty awesome. Entertainment Weekly scored a first hand look at Hugo Weaving as the nefarious, Red Skull in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’. Just like Steve Rogers (played by Chris Evans), Johann Schmidt was the test subject to create the perfect soldier for the Nazi empire. Unlike Rogers who ended with some manly pecs and stud muscles, Schmidt ended up as pictured above. I think he got the short end of that stick. Considering we only got a VERY small glimpse of Red Skull in the trailer, I think this is pretty amazing. I was a bit skeptic about how they can pull off “Red Skull” and be believable, but I think the make-up and costume department really did an amazing job. I seriously want that HYDRA Corp. belt buckle.
EW also landed an interview with ‘Captain America’ director Joe Johnston. Hit the link below to check out the interview!
These are so ridiculous, it cracks me up. Thanks to @Babs_SaraLima for leading me to these hilarious illustrations. Created by Caldwell Tanner (with credits to Michael Christatos and Caroline Martin) for College Humor, these illustrations show what it may be like if superheroes were also “hipsters”. Out of the whole collection, my favorite has to be the Hipster Hulk. Who else can get angry and turn huge and green while sporting that stupid “emo hair cut”. LMAO!

Why does the international markets get the good shit sometimes? Unlike the simple X-Men logo poster we get, the international market gets these two pretty rad posters featuring James McAvoy as Professor Xavier and Michael Fassbender as Magneto. Whats really cool is the reflection in the water shows their future self. Kind of a bummer for Professor X as is a bit of a down grade while Magneto gets pretty awesome as he gets older. Damn, that Michael Fassbender is so studly!
‘X-Men: First Class’ opens June 3rd, 2011. Hit the jump to check out both posters.
It looks like Warner Bros. is in high gear to promote the shit out of Zack Snyder’s ‘Sucker Punch’. Earlier this week, the newest trailer titled “Trailer Painter” was released and now, we get see some new posters that was released international. Designed to look like vintage propaganda poster, it is fitting considering the movie takes place in a 50’s post-war era. I’m convinced that the movie is going to be a visual treat and probably be an amazing shoot em up type of movie. On the flip-side, I have no idea how the story will go and will be tuning to see what the “experts” say when the reviews start rolling out. I’m still not convinced considering I have no faith in Jaime Chung (Amber) and that “High School Musical” girl’s (Blondie) acting ability. On the other hand, I have completely fallen for Baby Doll and Rocket. They are adorbz.

Goodness. I freakin’ love Tom Whalen’s (aka strongstuff) work. Recently, we spotlighted Tom’s amazing ‘Terminator‘ poster. Well, after looking around the web for more of his work, I came across this pretty awesome Green Lantern Corp. illustration he did as a commission on his DeviantArt page.
here’s a commish (ain’t i fancy) of the GL corps that i just wrapped up…it was really a blast to work on. i’ve drawn most of the main characters at one time or another, but it was fun to finally have a good reason to draw tomar re, abin sur and alan scott.
What I really love is Tom’s use to bold lines and his use of colors and character placement in the illustration. It also helped that my favorite Green Lanter, Kyle Rayner is present in the picture. This is pretty beautiful considering it will become part of someone’s collection and never get printed. Regardless, its a stunning piece that I was glad I found. Keep up the amazing work Tom!
Well, ever since Megan Fox was booted out of the ‘Transformers’ franchise, people seems to be less irritated by her. Even when ‘Jonah Hex’ became a massive flop, I really didn’t hear that much. Maybe it’s a good thing for her to leave (or booted as I first mentioned) the franchise that put her on the map. Well, regardless Megan Fox is a sex symbol for today’s youth and she is pretty much on every adolescent boy’s bedroom wall and in every adolescent boy’s wet dream. Well, considering she isn’t the blockbuster mega-star she used to be when she was playing “Mikaela Bane” and still randomly spouts stupid stuff that gets printed in all forms of media, she is still a powerful marketing tool for any company. Maybe that’s why famed clothing designer, Giorgio Armani decided to have Megan Fox as the new face of Armani underwear replacing “Posh Spice” Victoria Beckham. Who knows whats in store for Megan Fox in the future. I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with being half-nekked and nothing to do with a sequel for ‘Jonah Hex’ (oh gawd, please do not let this happen…).
