The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly ever get to see behind the curtain at how it all comes together.
Fortunately, we've managed to uncover dozens of behind the scenes images from your favorite comic-inspired movies. From The Dark Knight to Dredd, and Conan to Kick-Ass, we now have a little bit of an idea of what life was like on set during the creation of these beloved adaptations.
It doesn't come up too often around here since we tend to focus on sequential art, but I love movie posters. Love 'em. As long as there's not five lines of sans-serif text superimposed over someone's face, or some weird CGI animal and/or former SNL cast member making a weird smirk, I could look at those things all day -- and the best often come from artists inspired by their favorite movies to create striking images, whether it's for the Alamo Drafthouse or just for fun.
Case in point, artist Tomer Hanuka, whose portfolio includes incredible posters for Rambo, Psycho, 300 and more. Check out the best, along with Hankua's also-rad book covers, below!
Frank Miller apparently hasn't completed his sequel to the comic series 300, Xerxes, over the course of nearly three years. This pace means the movie version of the story, titled 300: Rise of an Empire, will almost certainly be out well ahead of the book when it arrives in theaters on March 7.
ICv2 reports that Miller has finished two issues of the five-issue series. That's how far along he was when Dark Horse Comics CEO Mike Richardson talked to ICv2 in early 2011. Miller "has every intention of returning to the remaining Xerxes issues when his Hollywood commitments are complete," the site reports.
In the 7+ years since 300 hit theaters, hints at a potential sequel, both to the movie and its inspiration, Frank Miller's 1998 comic series, have been coming at a trickle.
A new trailer has confirmed that a movie sequel titled 300: Rise of an Empire will be coming out next March, and it'll be based on Miller's graphic novel sequel, of which fans saw a preview back in Dark Horse Presents back in 2011.
