Musician Chipocrite has put out a 6 track 8-bit chiptune soundtrack for the 15th year anniversary (to the date!) of the Coen Brothers’ film The Big Lebowski. You can pick it up for $5 over at Band Camp and listen to familiar songs changed into electronic works of art while sipping away on a white russian and looking at a rug that really pulls the room together, man.
I’m not 100% sure but I think this is viral marketing for a certain upcoming sequel film about Real American Heroes coming this summer. Why this commercial didn’t air during yesterday’s Super Bowl is a travesty because it would have been amazing to see this on tv.
Here’s a trailer for Danny Boyle’s (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) new film called Trance. It’s a psychological thriller about an art heist where the thief (McAvoy) steals a valuable painting
Oh, but then he gets double crossed by his partner (Cassel) who hits him so hard he forgets where he actually stashed the painting. Cue a sexy psychologist (Dawson) to help clear the foggy memories and you’ve got a stylish film I can’t wait to see.
COMMUNITY SUBMISSION: TRAILER FOR ART DOCUMENTARY FILM WORKING CLASS
Working Class Directed by Jeffrey Durkin
Working Class tells the tale of underground artists Mike Giant and Mike Maxwell and their decade long friendship that started with a tattoo. The story is is told through the cities they call home, by cutting back and forth between the neighborhood of San Franciso and San Diego, as the artists talk about art and life.
NECA’S LIGHTNING GREMLIN FROM GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH
One of my favorite cult films series is Joe Dante’s Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. NECA recently started releasing new toy figures and one of them is this Lightning Gremlin from Gremlins 2.
I think this figure perfectly embodies the wild and wacky edge that Dante brought to the sequel. Gremlins 2 was such a departure from the original with more slapstick camp in the script, over the top genetically altered creatures with a cartoon style and a weird Looney Tunes tie in.
The Lightning Gremlin figure is available exclusively at Toys R US for $11.99.
Heritage and Topps Trading Card Company have collaborated to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Mars Attacks property with a set of collectible pulp comic art trading cards.
For $1.99 fans will get a random selection of 6 cards which can include some of the original pulp comic art, sketch cards, deleted scene comic panels, and new age comic panels for the new modern comic take on the Mars Attacks property from IDW Comics.
If you’re interested these should be available at retail stores, comic book shops and online stores.
