Amazing Vintage Posters For Federico Fellini’s 8½
If you love cinema at all chances are Federico Fellini’s 8½ is one of your favorite films, it sure is one of my personal favorites. Today Criterion posted a collection of international posters, brochures and program covers. Some of these are pretty wacky and out there and don’t represent the film’s essence quite well, although they might be aesthetically good-looking; doesn’t that remind you of the Mondo posters? Anyways, the French press book cover (the red one, to be clear) is gorgeous, I also really like the Japanese brochure (it’s the one with the purple writing). What are some of your favorites?
Bumblebee back to Vintage
Michael Bay just released a first look at the new Bumblebee for Transformers 4. Looks like B is back to vintage, with more of a muscle-car look. It’s “a highly modified, vintage 1967 Camaro SS” to be precise. Optically there’s clearly less yellow, more black.
Personally, I think it looks totally badass. I was always a fan of the Camaro in the first half of the first film, because it had more character, as an old time American icon. This one looks even better, although I must say I preferred the previous paint job with the stripes.
There are no plot details on the movie yet, but honestly who needs them? It’s a Michael Bay film, we watch those for the big action set-pieces and the glossy visuals. The cast however has already been announced: Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles and Li Bingbing.
Bay’s new action extravaganza will hit theaters June 27th, 2014.
