Todd Slater’s Exquisite “Stargate” Print Goes Onsale May 8th At Skuzzles


This officially licensed limited edition screenprint poster is for 1994’s sci-fi classic “Stargate“.  Directed by Roland Emmerich, the film stars Kurt Russell, James Spader,  Djimon Hounsou, Erick Avari, Alexis Cruz, Mili Avital, John Diehl, French Stewart, and Viveca Lindfors. The plot centers around the premise of a “Stargate“, an ancient ring-shaped device that creates a wormhole enabling travel to a similar device elsewhere in the universe. The film’s central plot explores the theory of extraterrestrial beings having an influence upon human civilization and of course, Kurt Russell kicks some alien ass!  Artist Todd Slater’s highly detailed print will be available in two stunning editions.

Here is what Todd Slater had to say about the movie and the project: “I was 15 when Stargate was released in theaters in 1994 and I was immediately struck by it’s epic scale and grand atmosphere.  The character of Ra,  the Egyptian solar deity, is the one that has really stayed with me all these years.  I wanted to give Colonel Jack O’Neil and Dr. Daniel Jackson a glimpse of what awaited them at the other end of the wormhole.  The two characters view their journey in different ways.  Dr. Jackson’s journey is filled with childlike wonder seeing something magnificent and awe inspiring while Colonel O’Neil bears an atomic bomb capable of producing cataclysmic results.  We learn later in the film that the character of Ra is an alien life form who possessed the body of a young boy.  I wanted to touch on this and add some tension to the image by showing his glowing blue eyes.  The print is 8 colors and features 4 varieties of metallic gold and copper inks.  There is also a hidden star chart in the background printed in a shiny black varnish.  I hope that the image brings something new to the franchise and that you all enjoy it!”

This luminous print goes on sale this Wednesday May 8th @ 12:00PM EST  HERE.
