Great Battle Royale Poster from Mondo with Bryan Lee O’Malley and Kevin Tong
Check out this exclusively limited poster from Mondo. The poster was created for a Tugg screening of the cult classic Battle Royale at the new Alamo Drafthouse in Houston.
However, if you are dying to get your hands on this poster (like me), you can also request the screening from Tugg. If your town gets it, the film will play there and you’ll have the opportunity to get this awesome poster.
Spotted on Badass Digest. You can follow Mondo, Bryan Lee O’Malley and Kevin Tong all on Twitter.

'Avengers' Meets 'Battle Royale' In 'Avengers Arena'
This December, Marvel plays on America’s love for teen-on-teen murder with Avengers Arena from writer Dennis Hopeless (X-Men: Season One) and artist Kev Walker (Thunderbolts).
From MTV Geek:

Trapped on an isolated island, 16 superhuman young adults (including members of the Runaways, The Avengers Academy and Darkhawk) are given a chilling ultimatum by their demented captor: Fight or die…only one will walk out alive! Thus begins a primal battle that will test the skills, stamina and morals of each combatant. Welcome to Murder World, where the secrets are plenty, alliances are fleeting, and the key to victory might be rewriting the rules of the game. Who will survive?
“These kids were chosen carefully and with specific story beats in mind. We definitely plan on taking advantage of the broad personality spectrum we have in play,” explained Dennis Hopeless in an interview with Marvel.com. “Even the characters who die off early make their mark on the story. I didn’t throw anyone into the book as cannon fodder.”

Mutant teens sent onto an island to kill each other with their superpowers? I’m down. I just hope this doesn’t signal the beginning of a “Battle Royal EVERYTHING” trend where senseless teen violence gets constantly shoved down our throats while countless properties ride the hype train. Part of what made Battle Royale so great was the initial shock and horror of what the kids went through, but also the intimate human moments dealing with their relationships with each other before coming the island and the moral dilemmas that come along with being forced to murder your friends.
It’s the sort of concept that’s pretty easy to get desensitized to, so hopefully Marvel takes it in some sort of new direction other than the whole superpower thing.

High Fashion Inspired By Battle Royale

For those of you not keeping up with New York Fashion Week (totally won’t hold it against you), Band of Outsiders unveiled their Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection. The brand’s designer, Scott Sternberg, says the line was inspired by Battle Royale - the 2000 Japanese cult film about a class of middle-schoolers sent away to an island and forced to fight to the death. It’s basically The Hunger Games, but way better.

Check out the run way pics above and compare them to the class uniforms from the film. If only they somehow incorporated those sweet exploding collars into the runway show.

A Little Bit On The Battle Royale Side: Nearly twelve years later, Battle Royale is finally getting an official U.S. Blu-ray and DVD release on March 20th (three days before the U.S. theater release of The Hunger Games). In case you’ve never heard of Battle Royale, it’s based on the Koushun Takami novel of the same name. It’s about high school kids forced to kill each other - kind of like The Hunger Games, only this came first.

'Battle Royale' Meets the U.S. Postal Service in 'Weapon'

Weapon was made in just 72 hours by Imagos Films for Chicago’s first annual wINDIE City Shootout, a 72-hour film race. Filmmakers were challenged to write, shoot, edit, score, mix, and master and 3-10 minute film while incorporating a prop, location, and line of dialogue chosen by contest organizers.

The prop for this challenge was the framed photograph, the location was a body of water, and the line of dialogue was “How could I know it wouldn’t fit? (That’s what she said.)

For all their hard work, these dudes wound up snagging the Producer’s Choice Award. Now someone fund a full-length feature!!!
