What’s Up Doc? Check Out DHM & Jerrod Maruyama’s “Bugs & Friends”

I can still remember the Saturday mornings of my youth.  I’d wake up early, sneak downstairs, grab a box of donuts, get a big glass of milk and sit on the couch watching cartoons for the rest of the morning.  One of my favorites was Looney Tunes with Bugs Bunny and all his friends like Wile Coyote, Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam and of course, Marvin the Martian and his Space Modulator.

Dark Hall Mansion has released some prints that are PERFECT for fans like me who love Bugs and his shenanigans.  Here is what DHM had to say about their latest release.

Dark Hall Mansion is pleased to welcome leading contemporary artist Jerrod Maruyama on for our latest officially licensed limited edition fine art print release, “Bugs & Friends,” in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-10-49-09-am

Artist Jerrod Maruyama, whose large body of work includes that for Warner Bros, Disney, Disney Japan, DreamWorks and more knows a thing or two about animation, especially being a gallery exhibiting artist, and we were instantly charmed by his take on everyone’s favorite rabbit as a host of quite famous villains awaits Bugs’ arrival, yet we can almost hear Bugs’ insouciant, “Eh…What’s up, doc?” as he bests yet again!

A piece we’re looking forward to framing up here, we hope longtime Warner Bros Looney Tunes fans truly enjoy and get a kick out of remembering each character’s quite singular encounter with the wily rabbit while also taking note of Bugs’ digs and such details as Jerrod’s inclusion of a certain adorable and sentimental penguin and his extraordinary attachment to Bugs…who can forget 1949’s “Frigid Hare” and 1950’s “8 Ball Bunny!”

Disney’s New Trailer For “Beauty and the Beast” Is Magical

“Belle you must leave here… this castle is alive!”

beauty-and-the-beast-official-poster

When Disney first released “Beauty and the Beast” back in 1991 it was…well … a beast.  It was the first animated feature to ever be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars and it was the third highest grossing film of the year.

Beauty and the Beast

Fast forward to today and now we get a new look at the CGI/ live action take on the tale of Belle and The Beast and it’s pure magic.  We absolutely LOVE the way it starts with the Disney castle being replaced by Beast’s castle.  Sit back and enjoy the full trailer for Disney’s 2017 blockbuster…”Beauty and the Beast.”

beauty-and-the-beast-castle

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

 

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.

The First Trailer For “Ghost In The Shell” Is Pure Eye Candy

“Maybe next time you can design me better…”

ghost-in-the-shell-official-poster

We can’t WAIT to watch director Rupert Sanders, upcoming film take on one of the most popular Japanese mangas of all time, “Ghost in the Shell.”  The film stars Juliette Binoche, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt and of course, Scarlett Johansson as “The Major.”

ghost-in-the-shell-the-major-scarlett-johansson-graveyard

There has been a bunch of backlash in the casting of Johansson as “The Major” given that the original character was Japanese.  Here is what Sanders had to say at the press launch for the trailer in Tokyo.

ghost-in-the-shell-2

“To me, you know, I cast very much from the gut and I think I was very lucky to be able to get an amazing international cast of people that I’ve always really wanted to work with,” he said. “Scarlett was one of those people, and to me there’s very few actresses who’ve had 20 years of experience, who have the cyberpunk aesthetic already baked in. You know, she comes from such edgy films from Lost in Translation to Under the Skin — she’s got an incredible body of work and the attitude and toughness of her really is to me The Major.”

“But also what she’s done incredibly in this film is she’s playing an android, she’s a synthetic body with a human mind inside. She did an incredible job of nuancing the human evolving through the machine, and in a way I think why it’s very relative to a large audience, it’s kind of a coming of age story and it’s a realization of ‘I am what I am — whatever’s happened to me, good or bad, that is the sum of who I am now.’”

ghost-in-the-shell

This one looks like a cross between the Wachowski’s “The Matrix” and Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner.”  Needless to say, we can’t wait and after watching this trailer, we have a feeling that you will feel the same way.

“Based on the internationally-acclaimed sci-fi property, “GHOST IN THE SHELL” follows Major, a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.”
