My ONLY issue is that these are available in blind boxes which means…. I will have six of one character that EVERYONE else has and most likely have to complete my collection at the mercy of ebay marauders who will prey on my passion for all things Batman with elevated prices and unreasonable shipping terms.

From writer-producers Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal”) and Michael Green (“Heroes”) and based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling novel, “American Gods” Season One is a visual feast focusing on an ex-convict named Shadow Moon, and his sudden introduction into a power struggle between the Old and New Gods.

American Gods Season 1 2017

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It’s a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, like Technology and Media. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they’ve lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.

Dave Perillo & Dark Hall Mansion Play “Hot & Cold” With “The Year Without A Santa Claus” Print Release

During our youth, we always looked forward to the holidays and all the TV specials that dhmwould pop up.  Sitting in our pajamas, with snacks and the whole family on the couch, we couldn’t WAIT to be teleported to places of sheer happiness.  One of our favorite specials was a stop motion animated special done by Rankin/ Bass Productions called “The Year Without A Santa Claus.”

Today, Dark Hall Mansion has revealed three joyful prints by artist Dave Perillo that focus on our FAVORITE characters from the special, “Heat Miser” and “Snow Miser.”  (Don’t even ask us to pick a favorite, we love these characters equally.)  These musical numbers NEVER fail to put a smile on my face, even at 51 years old and these posters pay perfect homage to the characters.  Here is the official announcement from DHM.

Dark Hall Mansion, www.DarkHallMansion.com, is dropping a little snowy Christmas fun into your Summer along with bringing the heat with our latest limited edition officially licensed fine art print created by leading contemporary artist Dave Perillo in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, THE YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS, and available Thursday August 17th!

Print

Dave Perillo brings a memory and smile to everyone courtesy of the simply inimitable and classic Heat Miser and Snow Miser! 1974’s Rankin-Bass masterpiece finds Santa, elves and children racing to rescue a stranded reindeer as Santa’s faith is tested and well restored as the children of the world bestow their priceless gift of love on him. Not to be missed is the amazing and unforgettable singing stand off between the Miser Bros that artist Dave Perillo has so charmingly captured via a pair of vintage LP album inspired prints that reminds us just how cool (er, and hot!) this timeless special really is! Be sure to also check out Dave’s single 12″ x 24″ Banner edition print that incorporates holiday decorations and has both Miser Bros on the piece. We hope they’ll become a mainstay of many a fan and family’s holiday traditions.

DHM, in partnership with Warner Bros.

From his take on the kids and their unforgettable moments within the chocolate factory to the bubbles of fizzy soda pop that waft up, the Everlasting Gobstopper and lickable wallpaper anchoring the inimitable Oompa Loompas, Tom brings it all together under the slightly sly and mischievous gaze of the one and only Willy Wonka. With a tumbling Violet from Willy Wonka’s lapel as counterpoint to Charlie’s triumphant moment finding the Golden Ticket, it’s all here, so welcome all…to pure imagination.

D23 Delivers Behind The Scenes Footage & New Posters For “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

D23 has taken over Anaheim, California and with it comes some great new stuff for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”   First up, writer, director Rian Johnson showed a tantalizing, behind-the-scenes video which shows the beloved cast doing what they do best, having fun and using the force.  We have to admit, we got a bit choked up when we saw Carrie Fisher.

As an added bonus, there are some new character posters with a significantly noticeable red color scheme.  How this ties into the film, only time will tell.  Stay tuned, we have a feeling this is not all they will be revealing and honestly….. we can’t get enough.

star-wars-Poe-character-poster

Star-Wars-The-Last-Jedi-Finn-poster

Star-Wars-The-Last-Jedi-Rey-poster

Star-Wars-The-Last-Jedi-Luke-Skywalker-poster

“An epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.
