Comic Con 2012: A Look at Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Tim Burton brought his latest addition to his hallowed filmography to Comic-Con this year. Frankenweenie is the loving tale of a boy and his dog.Of course, this is a reanimated Frankenstein patchwork dog, but a dog non the less. Shot in stop motion (and all in black and white), Frankenweenie started out as a short film created by Burton in 1984, but for Comic Con, he brought the original puppets, set pieces, and props from the film to a mini exhibit available for the public to see.

If you are a fan of Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic, you probably should watch Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Louis Malle's Le Monde du Silence. Here we offer you some stills from the film (as provided by i like this blog). It's soaked in beautiful, nautical imagery and Cousteau-ian investigations of marine life. Feeling inspired to watch it yet? Good. Go do it.

Alex Prager "Touch of Evil: Rooney Mara"

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 06, 2012
This is a bit of older news, but its really good so who cares? Last year, we showed you that photographer/filmmaker Alex Prager shot leading Hollywood stars for the NY Times Magazine, stars who represented the year that was in 2011. That meant Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst, and, of course, Rooney Mara. The photographs were, of course, stunning, but the short conceptual films that Prager shot with each actor/actress are quite brilliant as well....

Blade Runner as Watercolors, Part 1

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 02, 2012
Apparently, this is Part 1, and there will be more. Somebody who really, really loves Blade Runner (one thing we have learned while at Juxtapoz; people love Super Mario, Legos, Star Wars, and Ridley Scott, but you knew that) created the opening 12 minutes of the film using over 3285 aquarelle paintings. Harrison Ford's acting is better in watercolor form.

AI WEIWEI "NEVER SORRY": Official Trailer and #RaiseYourFinger Initiative

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 13, 2012
"Freedom is a strange thing." A perfect sentiment, spoken by one of the most famed, controversial, political, and influential contemporary artists in the world today, China's Ai Weiwei. Over the past few years, no artist has gained the international attention as Weiwei, both for his continually outstanding work, but for his arrest and imprisonment for phantom charges in China last year. First-time director Alison Klayman has captured the artist at his height in the documentary, Never Sorry.

Adult Swim x Juxtapoz: Kevin Kirkpatrick's Bust of Carl from Aqua Teen

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
One of the best parts about teaming up with Adult Swim on our very special July 2012 issue are the collaborations that came out of the months of work. One of our favorites was Kevin Kirkpatrick's amazing bust of Carl Brutananadilewski from Aqua Teen Hunger Force (aka, Aqua Something You Know Whatever). Remember, Kevin did the amazing Beavis and Butthead busts that were all over the web earlier this year...

Neckface x Isaiah Seret "Born Under a Bad Sign"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 31, 2011
Neckface and Isaiah Seret just released a trailer for the new action-horror-ninja-super villain Neckface short film, "Born Under a Bad Sign," that was made in the artist's installation at MOCA's "Art In the Streets." From the looks of this trailer, it looks pretty well-made, considering it spoofs action-horror-ninja-super villain movies.
