Think About The Futura: The Graphic Design And Visual Ephemera Of Batman ’89

Untitled-1

Launched in late 1988 by the B.D. Fox agency -– who had also handled the campaigns for E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, the one true Robocop movie, and mankind’s crowning cinematic achievement, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure – with a poster designed by the film’s production designer Anton Furst, the Batman campaign is a classic example of doing more with less. It’s sexy, sleek, mysterious and new. It’s regarded as one of the best movie campaigns ever, and for good reason. On the occasion of the film's 25th anniversary, let’s talk about why the campaign was so good.

Jon Burgerman Turns Movie Posters Into Hilariously Violent Action Scenes

I'm not really here to spoil your weekend with The Hard Questions, but I think there's an interesting debate you can have about whether advertising can truly be art. Like, we all have movie posters that we love, but does the idea of trying to sell you something change the nature of art? Does turning an aesthetic into a commodity cheapen it, and if so, what about all the Renaissance art that was commissioned from working artists in order to do just that? Is the Sistine Chapel really any different from Drew Struzan's Indiana Jones posters?

Folks, I don't know. I do, however, know that you can take existing advertisements and transform them into something that's fun and engaging.

That's exactly what artist Jon Burgerman has done with a series of photos called "Head Shots," where he takes the standard action movie poster to its logically violent conclusion while traveling through the subway. It's a pretty fantastic use of the stuff that's already out in public, and you can check out a few of the best ones below

We all know that Marvel Studios has its movies planned out through 2028 (not an exaggeration, a real date 14 years in the future), but what about DC Entertainment? All we've heard so far is a set date for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (May 2016, pushed back from summer 2015) and some nebulous stuff about a Justice League movie, a Justice League Dark movie and some other projects.

Well, according to entertainment reporter Nikki Finke's website, things may get a whole lot clearer at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Finke has was she says is DC and Warner Bros.' movie schedule (though "a lot is in flux") through May 2018.

Birdman: Michael Keaton Is An Actor Going Insane After Playing A Superhero… Hmmm [Video]

Untitled-1

As much as I might not like Tim Burton's Batman movies, I will always kind of love Michael Keaton. I mean, I saw Multiplicity in the theater. Twice. That's how much I love that dude. And as a result, I could not possibly be more interested in Birdman, a new film by Alejandro González Iñárritu starring Keaton as an actor best known for playing a superhero, a role that cast a shadow over his career and may be destroying his mental health.

Also, the Hulk, Gwen Stacy and Snow Job are in it.It's pretty exciting.
