Ïve Bastrash has been drawing all his life, and those 10,000 plus hours have paid off with some really killer takes on classic movie posters. Take the jump for his full Raiders of the Lost Ark poster, and then head to his Deviant Art page for a full gallery of beauty.
There were two times in my life I got to see Raiders of the Lost Ark on the big screen; the first was when it was originally released in a smallish theater in Ottawa, KS. The second time was in Atlanta, GA some 15 years later at the magnificent Fox Pavilion. Both times were magical, and seeing the adventures of one of my favorite characters in what has to be one of my all time favorite movies is always a thrill. So you can imagine how excited I am to hear that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are bring Raiders of the Lost Ark to IMAX for a one week run beginning September 7, 2012.
Check out this fake trailer for Raider of the Lost Ark had it been made in the heyday of the Hollywood serials.
This “pre-make” is a mash-up of old trailers and clips found all over Youtube. It is not endorsed or connected to Paramount Pictures or Lucasfilm. It was made as a purely technical exercise and for laughs. Here is the recipe:
The 10 Commandments, Prince Valiant, Naked Jungle, Secret of the Incas, Jungle Queen, Zulu, Look to Lockheed for Leadership, Casablanca, The City of Brass, Mr. Moto takes a Vacation, Star in My Crown, A Pain in the Pullman, On Dangerous Ground, Patton, King Solomons Mines, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Greatest Show on Earth, David and Bathsheba, The Screaming Skull, When You Know, Mysterious Mr. Moto, Lawrence of Arabia, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, and Superman at Bay.
Alfred Molina makes villainy a suave, ruthless affair as the voice of Ares, the God of War, in “Wonder Woman,” an all-new DC Universe animated original movie presented by Warner Premiere, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation and set for distribution on DVD and Blu-ray March 3, 2009 by Warner Home Video.
Today’s “Wonder Woman” Q&A â€¦ meet the ever-humble Alfred Molina, voice of Ares, the God of War â€¦
I’m sure it has been on your mind ever since Marvel announced the release date for Captain America, “Who is going to direct this masterpiece?”Â Your question has been answered via the trades, as The Hollywood Reporter has Joe Johnston taking on the First Avenger.
Who is Joe Johnston?Â This is the guy who directed The Rocketeer, which has a huge fan following.Â Since First Avenger: Captain America is set during World War II, he should be perfect to guide the production.
“Captain America” will be a World War II-set movie, and the character will appear in the modern day-set “Avengers.” Executive producing on “Captain” are Louis D’Esposito, Stan Lee and Marvel Studios’ chairman David Maisel.
Johnston is also the genius behind the convoy sequence from Raiders of the Lost Ark, as he served as the storyboard artist for Spielberg, and envisioned one of my most loved action sequences of all time.Â Of course he’s also the director behind Hildago and the upcoming Wolfman remake, but I still have hope for an awesome movie.
Even though Johnston is in place, no writer has been brought on board, and the role of Cap has yet to be cast.
Lawrence Kasdan, the guy responsible for Return of the Jedi, The Empire Strikes Back, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, has been hired to adapt Robotech for the live action flick starring Tobey Maguire.
A sprawling sci-fi epic, “Robotech” takes place at a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology on an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific isle. Mankind is forced to use the technology to fend off three successive waves of alien invasions. The first invasion centers on a battle with a race of giant warriors who seek to retrieve their flagship’s energy source known as “protoculture,” and the planet’s hope for survival ends up in the hands of two young pilots.
Wicked cool giant robots battling aliens from another world in a live action format could really really rock if done right, otherwise it could devolve into another Robot Jox.
