John Alvin: 1948 – 2008

E. T.

Via IMPAwards we get the sad news that legendary artist John Alvin has died. The image above, which ended up becoming the poster for E.T., is probably his most iconic piece of work, but he left behind tons of great movie related art. You can check some of his posters here, and more of his original art here.

He and his creativity will be greatly missed. But his work will endure.

Trajan is the Movie Font

I’ve been meaning to post this video for a while now. Watch it and see if you can stop yourself from muttering “Trajan again” under your breath all the time.

Found via the great Burbanked.

Row Three

If you’ve been reading this site long enough you may have noticed the comments of Andrew James and John Allison, and you might even have noticed me linking to their sites (MoviePatron and FilmGrotto) from time to time. Well, Andrew and John recently got together with three other bloggers (Marina Antunes,Jonathan Burdick and Kurt Halfyard) and launched a new film site called RowThree.

The site is well worth a check. It’s looking great and the already has tons of great content. And if you visit the site be sure to check the comments. The co-bloggers generally comment on each other posts so you often get multiple interesting points of views on every issue.

The site does have a very serious lack of posters, but hey, no site is perfect.
