Beautiful Fan Made Posters For Most Of Your Favorite Movies

Blade RunnerFan art, taken as a whole, is a hit or miss proposition most days. There are some pieces that you look at and know immediately why this person is not making art for movies in a professional capacity. But then there are the ones you look at and ask yourself, “why the hell doesn’t the movie studio just use this instead of paying some hack to make a poster where the main character stands with his back to you?” There are a lot of terrible movie posters out there for great, great movies, and for every one of those, someone invariably seems to have made of something incredibly beautiful, as if to say, “see, you poster didn’t have to suck.” Such is the case with this new gallery of fan made posters for a grip of wonderful science fiction films, classic, recent, and otherwise.

Erupting from the mind of Adam Rabalais, these posters are absolutely freaking gorgeous. (Follow the link to check out even more fantastic attempts for non-sci-fi movies, if you’re into that sort of thing.) His choice of pictures are subtle and understated, but totally capture the feel of the films in a way that you rarely, if ever, get from the cluttered, tech heavy offerings you see from most movie studios. He actually makes you feel like this is an art form rather than manufacturing throwaway chunks of movie marketing. These make me want to see movies, most posters don’t.

Shocker: That CW Battle Royale Series Is Not Happening

fb share tweet share

This probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone, but the CW is not moving forward with an adaptation of Koushun Takai’s dystopian novel, Battle Royale. Really, they’re not keen on the idea of a brutally violent show about kids murdering each other? Weird, right?

CW President Talks Battle Royale TV Series

fb share tweet share

Last week, reports that the CW—the TV network best known for teen fare like Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, and 90210—might develop a show based on the ultra-violent Japanese property Battle Royale, caused quite a ruckus. Similar in content to The Hunger Games, Battle Royale is about a group of teens forced to fight to the death so that a dystopian government can maintain control. Directed by Kinji Fukasaku, the 2000 movie is based on the novel by Koushun Takami.

Can you imagine bloody images like this on the CW?

The CW May Turn Battle Royale As A Weekly Series

fb share tweet share

Before The Hunger Games pitted child against child in a winner-take-all deathmatch, there was Battle Royale. There are similarities to be sure—kids forced to violently kill one another by a totalitarian regime is chief among these—but those are most likely incidental, especially considering Suzanne Collins claims she hasn’t seen the movie.

How would this translate to American TV?
