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.
Every now and then I'll get away from comics long enough to swing by the movie theater, and I've noticed that the posters just aren't getting any better. I mean, really, how many times can we see someone posing while looking seriously to their left or a close-up of somebody's face with four lines of text written over it before it's time for a revolution?
Fortunately, there are artists out there working to shape things up, and Mike Wrobel is among them. He's done some fantastic art, including posters for classic movies like Alien, The Thing and Friday the 13th -- and luckily for all of us, they contain a good amount of Kurt Russel. Check out our favorites below!
When Funko announced that they'd be teaming with Super7 to mass produce and distribute the 3.75" ReAction line, it seemed fan dreams of owing toys in the style of Kenner's 1977 Star Wars figures across both classic and contemporary pop culture licenses were going to come true. Little did anyone know just HOW true. Thanks to new images at Entertainment Earth, collectors can now have a look at what's going to be a busy 2014, with more than 60 total ReAction figures planned from movies including The Rocketeer, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Predator, The Terminator, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Back to the Future, Escape from New York, Firefly, Scream, The Goonies, Universal Monsters, Pulp Fiction, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Hellraiser, Trick 'R Treat, Halloween and The Crow.
James O'Barr's The Crow is experiencing a pretty hefty resurgence on the eve of its 25th -- and its movie adaptation's 20th -- anniversary. Joining the several new comic book projects at IDW and new movie reboot that's in the works is a new The Crow: 1/6th scale Eric Draven Collectible Figure bearing the likeness of the late actor Brandon Lee.
The Crow creator James O'Barr is apparently going to have a good bit of say in what happens in the new series based on his long-running series, which started in 1989. Earlier this month, production company Relativity Media confirmed O'Barr would serve as a consultant for the film, but it looks like the creator's art is going to be very important to promoting the movie -- at least in the early going.
The Crow creator James O'Barr has come onboard as a consultant for Relativity Media's movie reboot of his 1990s comics series, Variety reports. Among his duties will be an appearance with director Javier Gutierrez at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
After almost two decades of keeping a relatively low profile in the comic industry, James O'Barris back with a vengeance (literally) in December, writing and drawing a new mini-series for IDW starring his most famous creation, The Crow.The new story, The Crow: Skinning The Wolves, is a three-issue series that takes place long before the original
IDW Publishing came prepared to Anaheim, California's WonderCon event last weekend, announcing several high profile comic book initiatives. Besides the previously discussed Womanthology ongoing series (of miniseries) and
Up until now, you could be forgiven if you were unaware that director Stephen Norrington has been planning a new film version of James O'Barr's 1988 comic "The Crow," because up until now there has been no good reason to care at all about a new film version of "The Crow," which was first adapted semi-interestingly to film in 1994 by director Alex Proyas, and then flogged to death over a series of three sequels, one TV series, and an endless amount of Hot Topic merchandise.
