"Three Flavors" Trilogy Posters

These three minimalistic posters were created in honor of the great Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg “three flavors,” trilogy, created by Deviant Artist DaMovieMan. Incredibly stylish. The World’s End releases in America August 23 and it couldn’t feel any further away…

Top 25 Movie Posters of All Time…

Not picked by ALBOTAS or yours truly, but picked by the folks of Creative Bloq. This is a fantastic read if you would like to know a bit about the posters and design processes themselves. It’s also fun to attempt to guess what’s on the list (Hint: They’re all iconic films). My personal favorites are Raiders of the Lost Ark and Blade Runner.

The list also had some comments from pro graphics designers who decided to chime in. Very interesting stuff — check the list out here!

Deconstructive Criticism

When you have a creative job, you get a lot of feedback. And a lot of that feedback is just plain stupid. Some Irish designers have taken their favorite pieces of criticism and turned them into hilarious posters whose sales will benefit a local children’s hospital. Some of these border on in-jokes for creatives but others are ridiculously funny.

Recently, a client of mine reacted to an animation that started with some clouds. “Clouds… What does it mean?!” All I could think of was Double Rainbow.

A Little Bit On The Retro Video Game Poster Side: Creative studio Robotandspark made these Super Mario Land, Legend of Zelda, and Street Fighter 2: Championship Edition posters for the first ever Middle East Comic convention.

We sold quite a few of the prints, but the M. Bison Street Fighter 2 was probably the most popular and we had many requests for other characters from the series, so definitely watch out for the complete line-up featuring messieurs Zangief, Ken, Ryu, Dhalsim, Blanka, E. Honda, Guile, Chun Li, Balrog, Vega and Sagat.

There is a still a small amount of these limited edition prints available, so drop us an email or head to our online store to see if you can pick up a piece of retro inspired video game folklore!

Those Super Mario Land and SF2:CE jumpoffs need to be mine NOW.

Check out Robotandspark to peep the prints in higher resolution.

A Little Bit On The 2-in-1 Movie Poster Side: Series of posters by Patrícia Póvoa that highlights a single object or theme shared by two completely different movies. I’m still trying to figure out the Jaws x Death Proof one, but I’m thinking she might’ve meant Planet Terror.

BONUS! Check out this spiffy Calvin & Hobbes piece from her "My Childhood Heroes" series.

A Little Bit on the Uncle Sam Snake Side: Naked Snake (AKA Big Boss) wants you to develop the next Metal Gear Solid game. Kojima Productions will be at booth 1914 throughout GDC 2012 accepting applicants. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like they’ll be printing physical versions of this propaganda poster.

A Little Bit On The Geeky Poster Side: Game of Thrones beer, creepy Donnie Darko and Looney Toons hybrids, and lazy Daleks round out the new set of posters available from 604REPUBLIC. While you’re there, go scoop your official Albotas.com t-shirt!

A Little Bit On The Superhero Movie Poster Side: The Amazing Spider-Man and Dark Night Rises have some new posters. The Batman one’s aight, showing Bane all walking away from a beat-up Bat-cowl like a boss. The Amazing Spider-Man one though… a bit of a stretch, no? That thing playing with the shadow is a bit silly, and the whole thing about “the untold story”… um… I’m pretty sure we’ve heard the story before.

Regardless, my booty will be firmly planted in the theater seats on release night for both of these.

In case you haven’t heard, this is a movie about a crazy guy who kidnaps people and sews them butt-to-mouth, but in case you needed any more convincing that you absolutely need to see it, here’s an official synopsis:

Martin  is a mentally disturbed loner who lives with his nagging mother in a  bleak London housing project, where loud neighbors and cramped living  conditions threaten to plunge this victim of sexual and psychological  abuse over the edge. He works the night shift as a security  guard in an underground parking garage, where customers and their  vehicles come and go as he indulges his obsession with THE HUMAN  CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE) watching the film over and over on the small  TV set in his office and meticulously examining the scrapbook he has  lovingly filled with memorabilia from the film, including the  mouth-to-anus surgery instructions made famous by Dr. Heiter, the mad  scientist from Martin’s favorite movie. Pushed to the brink by  his harridan mother, haunted by the teasing voices of his abusive and  incarcerated father, Martin sets into motion his plan to emulate  Heiter’s centipede by creating his own version, in a rented warehouse,  which he begins to fill with victims, including a loud neighbor, two  drunk nightclubbers, a prostitute and a lecherous john, and several more  … including Martin’s pièce de résistance, one of the actresses from  THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FIRST SEQUENCE). Except that Martin lacks  the surgical skill, medical instruments and operating theater necessary  to create a larger centipede in the image of Dr. Heiter’s masterpiece.  So he makes use of materials at hand: duct tape, staple gun, household  tools and a fanboy moxie. What follows is one of the most  harrowing and terrifying films ever conceived, featuring a central  character that makes FIRST SEQUENCE’s Dr. Heiter seem downright cuddly  in comparison. THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (FULL SEQUENCE) is a triumph in  biological horror by one of the new masters of the horror film.

I’m one of the few people who actually liked the first film — not for the gore and torture, but for the general idea and overall bizzare-o-ness of the evil scientist dude. Also, those actors had to cry throughout the whole movie with their faces taped to each others’ butts! THAT’S acting, folks. So, yeah, I’ll definitely be seeing this new jump-off.
