The number of movies that Joe Dante and Roger Corman have produced is truly remarkable. They are easily the kings of cult cinema, hence the title of the show. In response, Hero Complex Gallery have lined up a rosta of artists that is truly astounding and the level of talent is remarkable. As ever, the work is not limited to posters. Hoang Tran has again masterfully created these amazing Crayola mini sculpts and Geoff Trap another fantastic vinyl toy.

Paul Ainsworth Takes Us To ‘The ‘Burbs’ With His Piece For Hero Complex Gallery’s ‘Kings Of Cult: An Art Tribute To Roger Corman And Joe Dante’

This Saturday, May 24th Hero Complex Gallery will be opening ‘KINGS OF CULT: An Art Tribute to Roger Corman and Joe Dante’,  their gallery collaboration with Trailers From Hell.

This pop-art tribute to cult directors Joe Dante and Roger Corman will feature artwork paying tribute to the entire body of work of both directors.

Paul Ainsworth has produced this amazing piece for Joe Dante’s 1989 cult classic, The ‘Burbs. Starring Tom Hanks as an everyman pushed over the edge, The ‘Burbs is a suitably nuts comedy classic that also boasts Bruce Dern, Corey Feldman and Carrie Fisher among the cast.

These posters by Paul are fantastic and are great examples of his colourful and striking style. They would sit great among any movie poster collection. You will be able to pick up a copy at the show or via the online sale a couple of days after the gallery opening.

 Here’s what Paul had to say about the piece:

“I must have watched the film or had it going on in the background throughout the entire process of this poster and I couldn’t have been happier. I’m a big Tom Hanks fan and love all of his quirky comedies from the 80s and 90s but the whole cast of this film made it a classic. Joe Dante really did a great job on this film and even now I feel like watching it again. There are two variants because I just loved having options when it came to this piece and I hope fans and collectors enjoy that choice.”

 

‘KINGS OF CULT: An Art Tribute to Roger Corman and Joe Dante’ will begin with a double feature screening at The New Beverly Cinema of Joe Dante’s Matinee (1993) and Roger Corman’s The Masque of the Red Death (1964) on May 23rd at 7:30pm.

UPDATED Bottleneck Gallery announce new gallery show ‘It Came From 1984’, curated by Chogrin

Over the festive break, announcement for 2014 have been coming quick and fast. From Mondo-Con to Gallery 1988 partnering with Sony for the Ghostbuster 30th anniversary touring gallery. Another exciting announcement comes via the brilliant Bottleneck Gallery for ‘It Came From 1984’, curated by Chogrin.

Bottleneck Gallery It Came From 1984

‘It Came From 1984’ will open on February the 7th at Bottleneck’s NYC gallery, 60 Broadway, Brooklyn and from the looks of things you can expect to see plenty of pieces dedicated to movies released 30 years ago in 1984!

So what was released in 1984? Well, when you look into it, 1984 was a pretty packed year. I would love to see the likes of Gremlins, Ghostbusters, The Terminator, Beverley  Hills Cop, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Karate Kid, Dune and This is Spinal tap represented.

As for artists, currently Cuyler Smith (who produced the Spike artwork for the flyer, above), Paul Ainsworth, Paul Shipper, Luke Butland, Maxime Crouzet of ‘Places and Films’, Doaly and Chris Garofalo will all be contributing pieces and hopefully we will see regular Bottleneck contributors Tim Anderson, Marko Manev, and Timothy Pittides join them too.

At Cult Collective we are huge fans of Bottleneck Gallery with Matt Ferguson’s ‘He Stole My Balloons’ making my top ten list. ‘It Came From 1984’ certainly does have the potential to be a great gallery that we very much look forward to hearing more about..

For more information, keep up to date with Bottleneck Gallery on their Website, Twitter and Facebook and as always we will bring you more info as we have it.

Post No Joes productions announce Kickstarter campaign for Movie Poster Documentary ‘Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six’

Here at Cult Collective we have been following the exciting progress of Post No Joes Productions movie poster art documentary Twenty-four by thirty-six very closely. We are pleased to report that Director/ Producer Kevin Burke has launched a Kickstarter campaign to get this genre defining documentary onto our screens!

Rather than me warble on and tell you all about it, here is the official synopsis from Director/ Producer/ all round good dude Kevin Burke

“Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six” is a film that explores the world of movie poster art, past and present; the artists who create it, companies that commission it, galleries that display it, and collectors and fans who hang it.

Beginning with the golden age of movie poster art in the 70’s and 80’s we’ll be interviewing a number of high profile art personalities from that era, including legendary film marketing director, Tony Seiniger, the man behind the inception of the original “Jaws” poster.  We’ll be speaking with Andrea Alvin, a long time member of the film marketing community and wife of the late, great John Alvin, creator of such iconic works as the original one-sheets for “Blade Runner”, E.T.”, “Blazing Saddles”, “Gremlins”, and countless more.  Placing a special focus on John and his career we’ll ask the question of where traditional illustrated posters disappeared to, and why.

Moving into this decade, we’ve been interviewing and following several modern screenprint artists, in various stages of their careers, through the process of producing illustrated movie poster art and speaking with them about their influences, their challenges, dealing with studios, print houses, and galleries. We’ve conducted interviews with independent print house Skuzzles to pick their brains about why illustrated art is so important to movie fans. We’ve visited Mondo in Austin, Texas to discuss the enormous impact that they’ve had on bringing illustrated film art back into the limelight.  We’ll even be profiling some collectors of movie poster art and speaking with them about its importance, how to store it and how to frame it (yep. we’re going so far as to visit a frame manufacturer to get an inside look on custom framing movie art).

To top it all off, we’re putting together a one of a kind gallery show featuring a ton of original posters from some really incredible artists.

It’s a hugely ambitious project, but it’s a story that needs to be told.  And we intend to tell the hell out of it.”

The movie features a whole host of top talent from the industry, from artists to filmmakers including Ghoulish Gary Pullin, Jason Edmiston, Phantom City Creative, Kevin Tong, Andrea Alvin, Joshua Budich, Justin Ishmael of Mondo, Paul Ainsworth, Matt Ryan Tobin and many, many more. The full list can be found over at the Kickstarter campaign site where there is also an awesome new trailer from the footage that Kevin has already shot. It gives you a great feel for what the final film will be about and features not only some of the awesome creators mentioned above, all of which we are huge fans of here at Cult Collective, but also  the collectors.

If you collect movie posters of any kind, then this Kickstarter campaign is certainly something you want to be involved in as the packages are truly incredible. The team over at Post No Joes have done a remarkable job at pulling together a Kickstarter for Twenty-four by Thirty-six that any movie or art fan will find it difficult to pass by on, regardless of budget.

With packages ranging from $5 to $5,000 for the Donald Trumps among us, their is the opportunity to pick up some amazing original pieces that truly reflect the nature of the film. A documentary about film art wouldn’t be complete without it’s own poster and Twenty-four by Thirty-six have not one, but four, including variants! Enlisting the deft hands of Paul Ainsworth and Matt Ryan Tobin, the posters capture the essence of a great ‘alternative’ movie poster and embody the style’s that collectors love.
