The Story Behind One of Star Wars' Most Recognizable Posters

The Story Behind One of Star Wars' Most Recognizable Posters

If two people made one of the most iconic Star Wars posters ever in less than two days, wouldn’t you want to hear that story?

Directors Erik Sharkey and Kevin Burke hope that piques your interest because they’re making a documentary about artist Greg Hildebrandt. Hildebrandt and his twin brother Tim rose to prominence in the 1970s when they became two of the most prolific fantasy artists in...

Our 20 Favorite Pop Culture Posters of 2019

Our 20 Favorite Pop Culture Posters of 2019

Even if you follow it religiously, you truly have no idea how much limited edition pop culture art gets released every year. It’s ridiculous. Companies like Mondo , Acme Archives, and Grey Matter Art, as well as galleries like Hero Complex, Gallery 1988, and Bottleneck , all release dozens of posters per month, and that’s not including private commissions, unlicensed work, and so much more.

Pixar movies bond us through tears. Each and every film released by the animation studio is carefully crafted to tug at those heartstrings and make some, if not all, of its audience members cry. And any movie that...

The Making of Alien Documentary Gets a True Making of Poster

The Making of Alien Documentary Gets a True Making of Poster

Everything about Alien is iconic. That goes for the alien itself; the movie’s scares, like the chest-burster; the lead performance by Sigourney Weaver; and even its simplistic poster and tagline: “In space no one can hear you scream.” It’s all so well known that it’s not an easy task to try and be in the same league, let alone match it.

However, that was the task posed to the team behind the...

La cara de Palpatine en el póster de The Rise of Skywalker es literalmente una foto de un juguete

La comunidad de fans de Star Wars ha descubierto que la imagen del emperador Palpatine en el póster de The Rise of Skywalker se basa en una figura de colección de la marca Hot Toys, pero Disney olvidó dar crédito a los creadores del juguete.

Esta no es la primera vez que alguien acusa a Disney de robar el trabajo de otro , pero es un caso complicado. Disney es la dueña de Star Wars y, por lo...

In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream...for These Gabz Star Wars and Alien Posters

Every artist has their own unique style. Some produce work that’s broad and colorful; others prefer detailed and dark. Then there are some whose work is so spot-on accurate it’s hard to tell it’s not a photograph. Gabz is one of those artists.

Wow, This Poster Of The Death Star Blueprints Is Insane

The first Death Star blueprints are some of the most important items in the history of Star Wars. It was those plans, inside R2-D2, that brought Luke Skywalker out of obscurity and ultimately ushered in the Return of the Jedi.

Now you can be R2, and hold onto the plans to Death Star II.

Artist Carlos Pardo has spent the last two years designing an absolutely stunning poster of the Death Star...

This Russian<i> Rogue One</i> Poster Puts the War in Star Wars

The posters for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have already been pretty great . Even the fan made ones have been good . But attendees at a Comic-Con in Russia were just given a brand new poster that tells a story all its own—a story about a brutal war and its costs.

If you’re doubting that this is real, we confirmed with Lucasfilm that it is.

What strikes me most about this poster is it’s the...

The Dead Rise on an Overwhelming New Poster for Avengers: Endgame

You thought those 32 individual posters for Avengers: Endgame were something? Well, check this out.

Though there are only (haha) 29 people on this Chinese poster that was posted by Disney’s marketing president, having almost everyone together is just...wild. Especially with the way the living and dead are handled differently.

A few things to note here. First is some perspective on how this...
