The Hunger Games: New Poster & Promotional Image

Posted by Grey

The live-action adaptation of the first chapter in Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel series The Hunger Games trilogy gets a new poster as well as some unexpected cross-promotion with a nail polish.

Last month, we took an in-depth look at Gary Ross'live-action adaptation of The Hunger Games, the first chapter in Suzanne Collins’ best-selling young-adult science fiction adventure novel series The Hunger Games trilogy with the first theatrical trailer, character poster sets as well as some propaganda-style posters for the twelve districts and the Capital in the film.

Earlier this month, in commemoration of the release date of the much-anticipated film being 100 days away, Lionsgate kicked off an extensive poster unveiling campaign by pulling off the #HUNGERGAMES100 Poster Puzzle Hunt, where 100 sites were given 100 different puzzle pieces of said poster. And after some back-and-forth over the campaign, the official poster were finally unveiled and available right after the jump.

Apart from the unveiling of the poster for the peculiar "100 days" occasion, the film studio will also be rolling out "Colors from the Capitol", a collection of China Glaze nail polish based on the film. A first image of the even more peculiar cross-promotion has been unveiled, featuring Elizabeth Banks in her flamboyantly pink Effie Trinket get-up. You can check out the image right after the jump.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.

The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, as well as Donald Sutherland, and is set to be released on March 23rd, 2012, with a film adaptation of Catching Fire, the second novel in The Hunger Games trilogy scheduled to be released on November 22nd, 2013.

Bat Family, Animated Style

Posted by Grey

Continuing his vision of a new Batman animated series based on Grant Morrison's Batman and Robin run, here's artist Javier aka Maggotx9's take on the Bat Family.

The Bat Family, affectionately coined by fans of DC Comic's iconic Batman, is the extended collision of crime-fighter either directed supported by the Dark Knight or are those inspired by the exploits of the Caped Crusaders in Gotham City.

With DC Comics restarting the entire DC Universe with "The New 52" initiative, the extended family of Batman is however as packed as ever but with some significant change (with the most notable being the fact that Barbara Gordon is no longer as Oracle but as an active Batgirl).

We have earlier covered on artist Javier aka Maggotx9's vision of an animated series of Batman that is based on Grant Morrison's Batman and Robin run with Dick Grayson as Batman. Here, we take yet another look at his alternate animated vision of Batman with his take on the Bat Family.

In the artist's own words:

The Bat Family.
So here we have the members from the bat family. (The ones that wear costumes)

from Left to right

Jason Todd - Red Hood
Cassandra Cain - Black Bat
Tim Drake - Red Robin
Bruce Wayne - Batman
Selina Kyle - Catwoman
Dick Grayson - Batman
Kate Kane - Batwoman
Damian Wayne - Robin
Stephanie Brown - Batgirl
Barbara Gordon - Oracle
Helena Bertinelli - Huntress

Would not it be great if DC actually made ​​an animated series based on the comics. I did this by imagining a series based on the events that occurred when Bruce "dies."

Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter: First Posters - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey

This Undead Boxing Monday, we take a look at the first posters from Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

It has been some time since we last mentioned Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter when Mr. Nine Inch Nail himself, Trent Reznor, was reportedly involved in the filming and scoring of the film based on the relatively well-received mash-up novel written by Seth Grahame-Smith. Of course, we all knew how that turned out with Reznor later confirming that he will not be involved in the film in any capacity.

That said, the film remained to be a peculiar one to watch out for in our undead and unhumble opinion. With two films on Abraham Lincoln coming next year, this is unabashedly the one we are more interested about given the heavy fantasy and supernatural elements as well as the visionary style of Russian director, producer and screenwriter, Timur Bekmambetov. Nevertheless, we are not taking anything away from Steven Spielberg and his biopic, Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and based on Doris Kearns Goodwin‘s acclaimed non-fiction book "Team of Rivals". We are pretty sure it's gonna be historical accurate and acclaimed but we really like to see how an ass-kicking, vampire-hunting Abraham Lincoln looked like.

20th Century Fox has released a lenticular poster for the film via IGN. With no further ado, hit the jump to check out these posters.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the blood-thirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead.

Starring Benjamin Walker as Abraham Lincoln, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Mary Todd Lincoln, Lincoln's wife, and Rufus Sewell, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is currently scheduled to be released in 2D and 3D on June 22nd, 2012.

The Avengers: Parody Art & New Character Posters

Posted by Grey

The cinematic Avengers are parodied and dissembled respectively in these fan art and new character posters.

With screen siren Scarlett Johansson's turn as Black Widow in the upcoming superhero epic film, The Avengers, there is certainly no doubt in her role as the sex symbol to appeal to the fan boys, Marvel Zombies or not. And that is immediately evident in an early promotional art where every members of the team roll out their best superheroic pose and Johansson's posture being of the most expectedly stereotypical sexy femme fatale.

Noticing the perceived sexist statement, artist Kevin Bolk conjured his own take on the aforementioned piece of promotional art by reimagining every single Avengers in the erotic pose of Johansson's Black Widow. Sexist discrimination or feminist notes aside, the result is hilarious.

In the artist's own words:

This is a parody of this promo art for the Avengers movie. I couldn't help but notice that in most of the ad material, the guys are all in heroic stances but Black Widow is almost always in an impractical, curved-spine "booty shot" pose. Figured I'd flip it around for my lady friends out there. Seemed only fair.

Them's some strong male characters, amirite?

And in a not-quite-related news on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel has disassembled the earlier-released banners for the film which we have deemed a good case study in Photoshop Disaster into individual character posters.

Hit the jump if you like them better individually.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Avengers:

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.

Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston and Cobie Smulders. The film is currently scheduled to be released in 3D on May 4th, 2012.

Brad McGinty 's Crazy Christmas Cards from 1955!

Posted by Grey

Behold quite possibly one of the creepiest Christmas Cards ever.

Remember the viscerally intriguing "Anatomical Guide to the Xenomorph" by Minnesota-based comic book artist Brad McGinty that provided us a most interesting anatomical analysis to the H. R. Giger's infamous creation in Ridley Scott's classic 1979 sci-fi horror film?

McGinty is back again with yet another grisly rendition of icons. And being Christmas, we all know who's in line this time round. Interestingly, the piece, which is available as a print at McGinty's website, is "reportedly" created by McGinty's grandfather, one Bradwick McGinty, in 1955.

Head over to McGinty's website to learn more of the vintage card's "tragic" origins. In the meantime, hit the jump to check them out.

Merry Christmas, Batman!

Posted by Grey

The DC Universe (Both superheroes and supervillains alike) wishes the Dark Knight a Merry Christmas at the Batcave, courtesy of Ulises Farinas.

Just in time for the festive season, Ulises Farinas's "Batman inspects a Gift" featured a stellar ensemble of superheroes and supervillains alike presenting their Christmas gifts to Batman at the Batcave. As ludicrous as the idea might sound, the execution is typically awesome of the artist.

From the artist's own words:

I frequently think of superheroes, in their own little private universe in my head, in my own particular way. The way Superman talks, the way Batman thinks, and occasionally I like to draw my interpretations of them. One of my favorite pieces of mine, is the Batman is a Hoarder, mostly because it’s the most clear representation of everything i love about Batman. He’s lonely, obsessive, and a bit crazy, but he is more importantly noble and determined. So i decided to make a sister piece for the Hoarder drawing. It is sort of a thank you for Batman, a thank you to Batman, and a thank you to my friends and family this year for the constant love and support. Anywho, enough babbling, here’s the drawing:

Prints of the piece are available at $25 at Ulises Farinas's site.
