Maleficent by Simon Delart

Posted by The Daily Zombies

With Angelina Jolie's Maleficent hitting the big screens this weekend, French artist Simon Delart (AKA S2lart) pays tribute to the film with his signature pixelized art formed by triangles



We have been observing Maleficent, the live-action film adaptation of Sleeping Beauty and feature film directorial debut of Robert Stromberg, with a certain degree of caution given how most Hollywood treatments of fairy tales are often butchered precariously. Nevertheless, the casting choice of Angelina Jolie as the eponymous role of Maleficent is without a doubt a stroke of genius both from a marketing and creative point.

To coincide with the release of the film, French artist Simon Delart (AKA S2lart) conjured this series of gorgeous pieces depicting one of the most iconic evil queens ever in his signature pixelized art formed by 2857 triangles. 

Courtesy of Blurppy, check out the entire series right below. 






Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

The feature film directorial debut of Robert Stromberg, Maleficent is now available at fine theaters everywhere.

Posted by The Daily Zombies

We welcome London-based Black Dragon Press into the fray of the crowded industry of graphic galleries of limited edition prints with this awesome take by artist Nicolas Delort on Werner Herzog's 1979 classic, Nosferatu the Vampyre.  




While it goes without saying that long-time followers of The Daily Zombies are more than familiar with the notion that the crowded industry of alternate graphic renditions of established licenced properties of pop culture has gotten to an unprecedented crowded period in history, we certainly will not reject ourselves the chance to expose us to more awesome artwork along the same channel whenever possible. 

And it is with that reason that we welcome Black Dragon Press, a London-based new entrant in the industry with an awesome debut print courtesy of artist Nicolas Delort as he takes on Werner Herzog's 1979 haunting classic, Nosferatu the Vampyre. You can head over to Blurppy to check out their interview with Delort for more details behind the scenes of the piece. Here are both versions of the print.

Elektra lives again... thanks to artist Craig Drake and Mondo. 



In this awesome rendition of one of the greatest assassins in comic book history, artist Craig Drake brought Marvel Comics' Elektra back to her element back when Frank Miller introduced her during his iconic run of Daredevil back in the early 80s. Courtesy of Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, this particular print was released mere days ago and have understandably sold out ever since. Nevertheless, you can still hit the jump to check out the full image.

WATCH Patton Oswald Vs. General Zod in Super Ego

Posted by The Daily Zombies

In this edition of The Nerdist' Superego, fan-boy extraordinaire Patton Oswald take on General Zod to gut-busting effect. 



We all know by now that notable stand-up comedian, writer, actor and voice actor Patton Oswalt is more importantly one hell of a geek with his epic rant on the set of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" as a citizen doing a filibuster by intricately outlining the plot of Star Wars: Episode VII in an eight-minute ad-libbed rant in one astonishing take while combining the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and then some) into the Star Wars Universe during last year's Star Wars Day

In this new episode of The Nerdist' Superego, Oswald takes on the role of Leg-EL, the poor attorney trying his very best to help General Zod, who has once proven himself to be the ultimate pain-in-the-ass no matter if it's Terence Stamp or Michael Shannon we are talking about. In typical fashion, General Zod unleashed his massive ego in a clever and entertaining back-and-forth banter between the two.

Aliens by Candykiller - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies

We have seen Scotland-based artist "Candykiller", AKA Brian Taylor, taking on Sir Ridley Scott's original Alien. This Undead Monday, meet Candykiller's Aliens. 



We have had our shots at artist extraordinaire Candykiller (AKA Scotland-based artist Brian Taylor) with his work on RoboCop (the original 1987 Paul Verhoeven sci-fi classic, mind you), and his incredible homage to the trilogy of films by celebrated British film-maker Sir Ridley Scott

Continuing his style of attention to intricate details coupled with awe-inspiring color palette, we get to preview his next awesome prints courtesy of Blurppy. Indeed, the Queen is coming with this new print and we understand that this will only be available in store sometime this week. Watch for it.

In the meantime, hit the jump to check out the piece.



As a comparison, check out the prints for Alien and Aliens side by side.


Hannibal by Phantom City Creative & Mondo

Posted by The Daily Zombies

With the terrific season two of NBC's astoundingly creepy Hannibal coming to a close, Mondo commemorate the occasion with an awesome pair of prints by Phantom City Creative to display the dualistic nature of the titular good doctor. 



As NBC close off the stunning season two of Bryan Fuller's Hannibal with the sour-searing finale, Mizumono, we knew we are in for one hell of a wait for the return of everybody's favorite cannibalistic serial-killing gentleman, but we are just grateful enough that the series saddled with low ratings can return. Nevertheless, Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is here to mark the occasion with not one, but two awe-inspiring prints conjured by Phantom City Creative to display the sinister dualistic dark nature of the titular good doctor, Hannibal Lector.

Hit the jump to check out the awesome prints.

X-Men: Days of Future Past - Final Preview

Posted by The Daily Zombies

X marks the very spot this weekend as The Daily Zombies' most anticipated film of the year, X-Men: Days of Future Past, hit the silver screen. With the release of the 20th Century Fox and Bryan Singer's ensemble superhero epic,  we take a final look at the film that is easily one of the most ambitious films of 2014. 


First and foremost, we here at The Daily Zombies are big fans of Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class, which effortlessly resuscitated the otherwise gradually dying franchise of 20th Century Fox's live-action adaptation of Marvel Comics' marvelous world of mutants no thanks to Brett Ratner's horrendous showing of the third film of the series back in 2006, X-Men: Last Stand. While any sequels continuing the moving rivalry and conflicts between the mutants are good enough for me, 20th Century Fox, as well as its producers, Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, and Hutch Parker decided to go where no superhero film franchises have gone before by ambitiously soft-rebooting the fourteen-year-old franchise through a conscious effort depicted on screen.

Bear in mind that this is not the same as Sony's outright reboot of Marc Webbs' The Amazing Spider-Man over Sam Raimi's earlier Spider-Man trilogy or Warner Bros, Pictures' relaunch of Batman in Christopher Nolan's 2005 Batman Begins, which has by now became the staple example of a successful reboot. Led by unquestionably the protagonist of the series, Hugh Jackman's mega-successful portrayal of Wolverine (so successful that we have seen two solo movies spinning off the main series), the film-makers are fixing the franchise that have been led astray by engaging the audience in what have been reportedly the second-most expensive film ever produced by the studio (a budget of an estimated $225 million, slightly dwarfed by number one on the list, James Cameron's Avatar at $237 million, according to Hollywood Report).

This is easily one of the most eye-catching bold move of which ambitions almost equal Marvel Studios' linked state of superhero films, affectionately known by fans as Marvel Cinematic Universe. And with 

 X-Men: First Class. In doubt? Well, I have spoken to a good population of the chicks to have that statistics in hand: They freaking dig it, as well as a sensible Michael Fassbender. Notwithstanding, the folks here at The Daily Zombies, dig it too.

Easily the most ambitious superhero film since Marvel Studios' box office-smashing, film industry-changing success with The Avengers, X-Men: Days of Future Past has been on the very top of the list for the Most Anticipated Film of 2014 here at The Daily Zombies. With superhero mania running all over Hollywood as of late, it is only right that the gathering of the cinematic interpretations of Marvel's merry mutants at 20th Century Fox requires this level of fan anticipation especially given the fact that the seventh film in the X-Men film franchise (including the Wolverine films) is the second-most expensive film ever produced by the studio (a budget of an estimated $225 million, slightly dwarfed by number one on the list, James Cameron's Avatar at $237 million, according to Hollywood Report).

Based on the fan-favorite story arc during Chris Claremont and John Byrne's classic run in "Uncanny X-Men" #141 and 142 back in 1981, Days of Future Past introduced fans to a dystopian future gripped with anti-mutant sentiments as a result of a massive backlash of mankind in response to the death of a politician (incidentally Senator Robert Kelly, the role played by Bruce Davison in the original X-Men film) by the hands of Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. While there is no doubt that the storyline will be drastically changed now that Wolverine, instead of Shadowcat Kitty Pryde, will be making the trip back in time, we are quite certain that there will be much more revision over the original arc in order to introduce the reboot element into the film franchise.

And with X-Men: Apocalypse being officially announced as the next installment for the franchise set to be released on 27th May, 2016, well ahead of the release of Days of Future Past, the level of importance of the franchise is no doubt prioritized in the eyes of the Powers-That-Be at 20th Century Fox.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past being a totally unmissable films on so many levels, we take a final look at the film by checking out the promotional campaign of the film.

A part of the marketing campaign, an unique campaign entitled 25 Moments focused on 25 moments in modern human history of which mutant intervention went unnoticed until now. This is a pretty intriguing concept that fills in many of the unrevealed story lines in between First Class and Days of Future Past and we suspect even beyond the two films. Hit the link to the 25 Moments page if you are not that concerned with spoilers and here's the trailer of the page, giving you a good glimpse on what the site contained.


Alas, here's the final trailer that we have featured earlier on. 


 


The final TV spot.

And for those who missed out on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and are curious to know what the end credit clip cross-promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past is all about, here's the clip.



There have been a ton of clips released from the film's official YouTube channel and we really opine that it is only right for us to go in cold for this one so we will not be featuring these clips and featurettes for the film. But if you do have the stomach for a fair share of spoilery scenes, head over to the YouTube channel  to check them out.


While Evan Peters' portrayal of Quicksilver was largely made fun of thanks to his unflattering costume designs, rave reviews over Peters's performance have been coming in hard and fast, praising the action sequences and moving portrayals by the actor. Perhaps this is yet another example of why exactly fans should not be passing judgment prior to watching the actual film. Anyway, Quicksilver once again steals the show with his Carl's Jr/Hardees Bacon cheeseburger ad alongside Daniel Cudmore's Colossus and Jennifer Lawrence's stand-in for Mystique. Here are the clips for these commercials.

And here are a collection of the recently-released posters for the film, a notable improvement over the uneven campaign earlier on.

First up, courtesy of Omelette, here's a series of twenty-three character posters that are essentially the same images from the twenty-five Empire Magazine covers with the omission of director Bryan Singer and Anna Paquin's Rogue. 
















































Some awesome ensemble shots for the obvious banner types.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.

Directed by Bryan Singer and starring an incredible ensemble cast featuring Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Boo Boo Stewart, X-Men: Days of Future Past is out now in all fine theaters.
