New Arrival: A Star Wars UnicornNovember 2, 2018
Here's something you don't see every day. This is the elusive Style A British Quad movie poster for Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. Similar to the Style A U.S. 1-sheet, this poster features artwork by Roger Kastel, a campaign that was discontinued when the producers realized that the artwork omitted the character of Lando Calrissian, played by Billy Dee Williams. What makes this poster even more desirable is that it was used only for the film's London premiere, primarily in the London Underground (subway system to Americans) and was generally trimmed to 27 by 39 inches to accommodate the frames used in the Underground. This un-trimmed example is truly a Star Wars Holy Grail.

Crush it Like Quint in Jaws!June 20, 2018
It's the 43rd anniversary of Jaws and I just discovered this very cool beer can in my local beverage distributor. Apparently this was a limited edition can produced by Narragansett Brewery starting in 2014. This is an exact replica of the beer cans that Captain Quint (Robert Shaw) drinks in Jaws. And in one famous scene - often misreported as unscripted - Quint finishes his beer and crushes the can, and Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) follows suit by crushing his own Styrofoam coffee cup. Great movie, great scene, not such great beer. Here's a screen-grab and a picture of the replica can:



Oh, and here's a ridiculously cool original ROLLED Jaws 1-sheet that we just acquired:
 
A Christmas Story: Sonsabitches!! Bumpuses!!December 12, 2017
These so-called "Mondo" posters came about in the early 2000's as an offshoot of Austin's Alamo Drafthouse Theater Alamo Drafthouse. These hand-drawn, screen-printed posters were a welcome alternative to Hollywood's increasingly star-driven Photoshopped posters and the public loved them. Mondo posters featured alternative images for classic and cult movies commissioned by modern artists and - because they were printed in limited quantities - they became instant collectors items. One of my favorites is Jay Ryan's interpretation of A Christmas Story. No leg-lamps or BB guns here, but he manages to capture the essence of the film with the Bumpus hounds ravaging the Christmas turkey. This particular poster was created for a one-time roadshow screening of Bob Clark's holiday classic at the original Christmas Story house in Cleveland.

John Carpenter's The ThingMarch 14, 2017

A few years ago John Carpenter presented a screening of his 1978 horror film Halloween at my local arthouse theater; after the screening the director fielded questions. Someone from the audience asked him about the ending of his 1982 film The Thing, when it came down to the two surviving characters - Kurt Russell and Keith David - which one was human and which one was the alien.

And Carpenter's answer was "Watch their breath. It's obvious". So I had to go re-watch the ending. Because, as we all know, humans have breath in the cold, but aliens not so much...
