WATCH Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo

Posted by Grey

Witness the destruction of Tokyo by unspeakable monsters... again. But this is neither any mere Kaijus nor your run-of-the-mill final battle for mankind... It's the live-action short film depicting the "Seven Days of Fire," the apocalyptic war mentioned in Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the 1984 classic anime film written and directed by none other than Hayao Miyazaki. 


We have seen our fair share of Guillermo Del Toro‘s Pacific Rim with the trailer and new posters as well as images of the auteur film-maker's ultimate homage to the Kaiju/Mecha aspects of popular culture. Being fans of the Japanese tokusatsu films, we are reasonably thrilled by the upcoming film. Today, our appetites are satisfied by a pleasant surprise: Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo (Kyōshinhei Tokyo ni Arawaru). 

An eight-minute live-action short film produced by legendary animation master Hayao Miyazaki's world-renowned anime studio, Studio Ghibli, and directed by Higuchi Shinji, one of the key artists for Hideaki Anno's iconic anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion,  Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo was commissioned by Hideaki Anno himself for the Tokusatsu Special Effects Museum in Tokyo. Depicting the "Seven Days of Fire," an apocalyptic war mentioned in Miyazaki's landmark 1984 anime film, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the eponymous antagonist, the Giant God Warrior, was actually designed by Miyazaki himself. 

Hit the jump to check out the clip for the unrelentingly brutal destruction of Tokyo.

The Amityville Horror by NE - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey

"Houses don't kill people. 

People kill people." 


This Undead Monday, we revisit the terrifying visions of the 1979 film based on the novel of the same name, The Amityville Horror, thanks to Austin-based artist, NE. 




Being new in the rapidly-growing industry of graphic art galleries where alternate graphic renditions on established licenced properties of pop culture, Odd City Entertainment is still finding its footing with an impressive launch thanks to Chuck Sperry's inspired Dazed and Confused print last month. And now we can add another inspiring work to the new stable thanks to Austin-based artist, NE.

This Undead Monday, we revisit the terrifying visions of the 1979 film based on the novel of the same name, The Amityville Horror, thanks to Austin-based artist, NE. An awesome atmospheric piece at first glance, the fun truly begins when the lights go out as indicative from the below gif that merges all three versions of the print in one.

Here's what the artist himself have to say of the piece:



When I was asked to do a poster for Amityville Horror, I was somewhat hesitant. I know the obvious and even traditional way of depicting these movies has always been to predominately show the house as a living thing with glowing windows for eyes glaring back at the audience in a not-so-subtle way. I chose to approach the Dutch Colonial house in a more ambiguous way to show what had brought the Lutz family to live there in the first place. I wanted to show that the perceived promise of the American dream outweighed the ominous presence of the structure. To show this, I chose to depict that house as beautiful, an ideal, yet possessing and off-kilter quality. The font for the title reinforced this strange nature by recalling the European posters of the 60′s and the 70′s. Finally, the choice to make it literally a house on a hill was deliberate. After all, that is the view of it from the boat house.”



And here's what Odd City Entertainment founder and Chief Creative Director Roman Morales have to say on the piece:

“It’s been an honor to work with NE on this piece. This is his first time working outside of the confines of New Flesh and his first time doing 24″x36″ printing via D&L. We’re both curious and excited about the process. Plus, I just loved NE’s take on the Amityville house. When we look at the art our artists create, we can’t help but look at it through a collector’s eyes. As a collector, this would be a must have for me. So, I guess you could say that along with the curiosity and excitement, there is a lot of pride in NE as well.”

Agent Smith Advocating 'Good' Machines

Posted by Grey

Agent Smith is back and this time, he's apparently on the side of the Angels selling Machines that are beneficial to mankind. 



Having iconic and instantly-recognizable characters promoting your products is a time-tested, tried-and-true tradition of modern day advertising. On the other hand, The Wachowskis' original sci-fi action film, The Matrix, is undoubtedly among one of the most iconic products of pop culture in the early 2000s and we here at The Daily Zombies have been unabashedly fans (a fact evidently so last month) of the entire trilogy (despite the tantamount sentiments of polarizing views of it).  Thus, would using one of the most identifiable characters in the film that is arguably a zeitgeist of a generation for an advert be a good fit? Consider the fact that both are on the very subject of "machines"?

Well, the answer is a big bad bold "NO." Fancy the evil Agent Smith, the antagonistic AI in the entire trilogy, on the side of the Angels selling you "good" machine that will be beneficial to mankind? Just one thought crossed my mind: Bad Product Placement.

Nevertheless, it was entertaining while it lasted and I personally am glad to see Hugo Weaving in character for one his most remarkable performances. Hit the jump to check out the advert for General Electrics' medical appliances and have a kick out of it next time you visit the local hospital.


The Mondo Mike Mitchell Gallery Show

Posted by Grey

Feast yourself with a collection of awe-inspiring portraits of some of the most colorful characters in cinematic history with the opening of Los Angeles-based artist Mike Mitchell's first solo gallery show at the Mondo Gallery from April 26 to May 25, 2013. 



Mondo is quite likely one of the top names one can think of whenever we talk about artistic reinterpretations of established pop cultural properties. Given our coverage on all the awesome stuffs coming from Mondo, regular dwellers of The Daily Zombies would have by now been more than familiar with  the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. And today, we embark on yet another field trip with an awesome artist thanks to Mondo.

We have earlier first glimpsed some of the sparks of genius from Los Angeles-based artist Mike Mitchell with his work on E.T. The Extraterrestrial with the Steven Spielberg Double Bill released by Mondo back in January. With Mondo launching the first solo gallery show of the artist, we have a more comprehensive look at his works and are truly astounded by both its simplicity in execution and all-around awesomeness. 




Featuring a series of "thirty-ish" portraits of some of the most colorful personalities we have seen in cinematic history, the Mondo Mike Mitchell Gallery Show is pushing the envelopes with Mondo's usual alternate take of iconic films on the sheer strength of its innovation within the boundary that was set up by the portrait format. In short, brace yourself for some truly awesome stuff. But before that, here's the official press release from Mondo:


Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, announces its next gallery show featuring the artwork of Mike Mitchell which will run from April 26th to May 25th at the Mondo Gallery located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. The Mondo Mike Mitchell show will feature a series of portraits as limited edition giclees for subjects that range from crowd favorites to characters that are slightly underappreciated in pop culture art. The gallery will open to the public on April 26th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm with regular business hours to follow for the show’s duration.

And here's what the artist has to say for the intriguing theme that he has put in place for his solo show:


For the portrait series, I wanted to keep the personalities there, at least how they exist in my own mind. Then apply that to a traditional portrait, something that most of these characters wouldn’t be doing. There’s an ironic sense about them that I like, but I also just really love these dudes for who they are, and I didn’t want to take too much of that away. When I watch a movie and really connect with a character, I often feel a strong urge to draw/paint that person. This show is allowing me to do that, it’s giving me the chance to catch up on years of great characters that I appreciate and admire.

And now, without further ado, hit the jump to have a taste at some of the pieces on exhibition for the show.
