Behind Artist MEAR ONE’s “Snow White and the Huntsman” Mural

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
Last week we told you about the Snow White and the Huntsman pop-up gallery that opened its doors on May 19. Those who have already been down to 7710 Melrose Avenue in L.A. have seen the work of a number of hugely talented artists, including 3-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. The gallery centerpiece, however, is a mural from legendary graffiti artist MEAR ONE.

"The Great Gatsby" Official Trailer

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Does F. Scott Fitzgerald's penultimate text, perhaps American literature's penultimate text, really need a full exploding screen experience directed by Baz Luhrmann, the man who made Moulin Rouge and the techo Romeo + Juliet? From the first trailer for the new update to The Great Gatsby, it actually may be pulled off and not have everyone running for the aisles.

Winner @ Sci-Fi London Film Festival: "Future, Inc." by Future Tense

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
This is quite good, especially considering the Sci-Fi London Film Festival asks of entries to make a 5-minute film in only 48 hours. And if you have ever made a film, that is quite hard to do. On top of that, the festival organizers give each group of filmmakers the props, title, and the theme, and tell them to have at it. This year's winner is Future, Inc, by Future Tense. Again, only 48 hours...

Topsafe London and ILoveDust combined efforts to animate this short video of Horfe’s quirky drawings. Excellent!

Bill Murray hosts a tour of "Moonrise Kingdom"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 22, 2012
There is a ton of anticipation for Wes Anderson's return to real actors with his newest film, Moonrise Kingdom, and Anderson regular Bill Murray hosts a tour (yes, you can tour films now, especially the big-budget arty ones like a Wes Anderson film) of Moonrise Kingdom. That's right, he just sort of talks the film out to you. We like it. We might take that idea and have Robert Williams talk out each issue...

San Diego Surf Film Festival this weekend

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 11, 2012
This weekend (its started already) is the inaugural San Diego Surf Film Festival, and with a great line-up of shorts, full-lenghts, documentaries, and experimental work, we wish we could check out Through the Whiskey Barrel: A Film About Surfing In Scotland (it shows on Saturday, May 12, we have time). Trailer after the jump . . .

Art Exhibition for “Snow White and the Huntsman” Now Accepting Submissions

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 07, 2012
Universal Pictures, the studio behind the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, announced a call for artists to submit work inspired by the film. The artwork submitted for the exhibition can be in any medium, and the winner will have his or her piece displayed in a pop-up gallery alongside the work of a prominent LA artist, as well as pieces by three-time Oscar-winner Colleen Atwood (costume designer on the film). Entrants must be 18 years of age, and the work submitted must not include any recognizable likenesses of the film’s stars.

The Dark Knight Rises Official Trailer

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 01, 2012
Look down the list of "summer blockbusters" each year, and you see a lot of studios just dialing in hundreds of millions of $$s praying that something sticks. Most of the time, we get some Green Lantern nonsense, but occasionally we get something that appears to have a good thing going for it. We are going to assume that Christopher Nolan's final chapter of his Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, will be entertaining enough and worth some popcorn and a jumbo soda pop, based off the official trailer...

Alex Prager "Compulsion" in Los Angeles, NYC, and London

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 20, 2012
Few photographers create the cinematic scenery that Alex Prager depicts in her work. Part film noir, part Wizard of Oz circa 2025, Prager has taken an aesthetic and made it one of the most recognizable in the world of contemporary photography. That is hard to do in this day and age. Right now, her Compulsion series is on simultaneous display at three galleries: Michael Hoppen Gallery, London until May 26, at New York’s Yancey Richardson Gallery until May 19, and M+B Gallery, LA until May 12.
