Dark Hall Mansion… Tom Whalen… Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory… NUFF SAID!

Directed by Mel Stuart in 1971 and based off the novel by Roald Dahl, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” is a beloved musical fantasy that has captured and held the hearts of fans everywhere for the past 46 years.  Gene Wilder’s portrayal of the reclusive, eccentric candy factory owner could arguably be one of the silver screens greatest characters.

Today, Dark Hall Mansion has partnered with the immensely talented artist Tom Whalen to give fans a VERY special print that pays homage to the brilliance of the film and talent of Gene Wilder and it’s scrumdidilyumptious!  Here is the official announcement… hold on to your Everlasting Gobstoppers:

DHM, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, welcomes back artist Tom Whalen for his view of the candy colored world that is “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.” Drawing on the classic characters and elements that so inform and define this beloved classic Tom’s sense of composition and intense use of color never loses sight of the story’s arc and sheer fun.

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.

Ever since we first heard about this series coming to Netflix, we have been doing a little countdown until it hits.

Death-note-netflix

Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

Here is a new poster for the supernatural thriller featuring Shinigami (“god of death,” “death spirit“) Ryuk.  It’s probably only a matter of time before we get a follow-up poster of Nat Wolff as Light Turner.
