YoungFrankensteinBDBoxArt

“It’s pronounced “Fronkensteen”

In 1974, Mel Brooks released comedic genius into the universe.  With an all-star cast, he managed to turn Mary Shelly’s story of “Frankenstein” into one of the funniest movies ever  to grace the silver screen.

This year “YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN” celebrates its 40th Anniversary and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is giving it the royal Blu-ray treatment.  As if that weren’t enough for you, 40 lucky fans will have a chance to win a rare autographed set photo from Mr Mel Brooks himself!

Frankenstein 1

The scariest comedy of all time gets resurrected as Young Frankenstein: 40th Anniversary arrives on Blu-ray September 9 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Comedy icons Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr and Madeline Kahn star in Mel Brooks’ brilliantly outrageous riff on Mary Shelley’s classic story of Frankenstein. After inheriting his grandfather’s castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (Wilder) follows in his ancestor’s freaky footsteps as he sets out to reanimate a dead body in Brooks’ “funniest, most cohesive comedy to date.” (The New York Times)

Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart
A film directed by Mathias Malzieu and Stéphane Berla and produced by Virginie Besson-Silla, Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp, the highly anticipated motion picture JACK AND THE CUCKOO-CLOCK HEART is a visually opulent animated fairy tale set in an exciting period full of fabulous inventions, enchanting music and marvelous adventures. This superbly animated movie brings to life a unique tale of love and the acceptance of others through an awe-inspiring cinematic adventure filled with whimsical characters, stunning CG animation and unforgettable musical numbers.

Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart
JACK AND THE CUCKOO-CLOCK HEART is set in the late 19th century Edinburgh, where little Jack is born on a day so cold that his heart remains frozen. Madeleine the midwife saves his life by inserting a cuckoo clock in place of his defective heart. It will work, she warns him, as long as Jack observes three golden rules. First of all, he must never touch the hands of the clock. Secondly, he must control his anger. And last, but certainly not least, he must never, ever fall in love. The moment Jack sets eyes on a young girl singing on a street corner, the hands of his clock-heart begin to race. Desperate to find her again, Jack launches himself into a romantic quest that will lead him from the lochs of Scotland, to the city of Paris and all the way to Andalusia.

Poster Posse Members Doaly & Florey Give Us Their Takes On “The Man Without Fear”

As Marvel celebrates their 75th Anniversary, artists from around the globe are paying homage to their favorite heroes from Marvel’s long list of greatness.   Poster Posse members Doaly, (Or is it ‘King Doaly’?)  and Florey (Or is it Mr. Florey?) have turned in two creative looks at  Matt Murdock and both are quite exceptional.  Matt Murdock is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls from an oncoming vehicle. While he no longer can see, the radioactive exposure heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability. His father, a boxer named Jack Murdock, supports him as he grows up, though Jack is later killed by gangsters after refusing to throw a fight. After donning a yellow and dark red, and later an all dark red costume, Matt seeks out revenge against his father’s killers as the superhero Daredevil. – Wiki

Daredevil-Doaly

Here is what Doaly had to say about this beauty:  “The basic concept was to play with traditional eye tests as part of the marketing for the new Netflix Daredevil series that is currently in the works as Daredevil/Matt Murdock is blind himself.”

Florey recently had this amazing print in a show at Hero Complex Gallery called: “I am the law/ A life of crime.”  Florey has taken more of an action shot of Daredevil over a rain  soaked Hells Kitchen with his print. One thing that really “stands out” about this one is that the title is embossed in braille!  Quite clever and I can’t WAIT to get mine framed!

Daredevil-Florey

You can actually purchase Florey’s print either through Hero Complex Gallery at THIS LINK or you can bid on #1 of this print on ebay at THIS LINK with all the proceeds going directly to charity for the blind.

Did you know?

-  Daredevil’s sense of touch is sensitive enough to detect the faint impressions of ink on paper, allowing him to read by touch.

- Daredevil’s sense of taste is sharp enough to enable him to detect the number of grains of salt on a pretzel.

- Daredevil is able to hear a heartbeat from 20 feet away, as well as identify people by their individual beat rhythm, or detect whether they are lying or not by the changes in their heartbeat.

Let’s face it, he’s pretty damn cool and these prints do an excellent job paying tribute to the protector of Hell’s Kitchen.
