Hi


After sitting around the other day watching Smallville and randomly looking at fan art online. I decided that I was gonna try it out myself to see what I could come up with. When I was looking thru some of the fan art movie posters on other sites, I saw some sweet looking stuff and knowing the talent of most of the people on this site, I bet others could make some pretty kick-ass mock movie posters as well. Think of a movie you'd like to see starring whoever you'd want in it, open up your photo editor and come up with something of yourself. 1st 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be given out at the end of May so have fun and make something cool.

Prize List As Follows:

3rd Place will receive - A little bit of nothing
2nd Place will receive - Nothing
Grand Prize will reveive - A lot of nothing

So there you have it. Theres nothing to lose besides some of your time but also theres nothing to gain as well!

Here's mine:


The Villain up top is Supermans Villain "Brainiac"



I'm serious... Make a poster... This is my serious face... sleep

Your poster is awesome CX3. Mine was done in about half an hour because I'm just so tired. Going to bed now so hope to see more when I wake up. I thought Brad and Norton deserved to be together again wink

I'm willing to offer an extra 3 bags of nothing* to anyone and everyone who includes this picture of Ron Jeremy and bills him as one of the main actors on their posters.




*Any potential recipient must provide their own bags.

The problem with that, Rawree is that most people probably don't want Ron Jeremy in a movie that they'd like to see.

Or maybe I'm just speaking for myself...

Love the position of Mr Smith's (floating) left hand. But I think you're missing the point of this make-believe movie poster contest.

I'm going to take a stab that not many people here have read Less Than Zero. It is my dream to make it into a movie (because it already was, and it sucked). Here's what I want the teaser to look like.

Tarn, I spit most of my drink on my keyboard thanks to you.

Atom, nice but Will Smith could neeeeeever play John Stewart. He's one of my favorite actors but seeing him play GL hurts to think about ha. He wouldn't be able to crack one joke throughout that whole movie.

You don't think Will Smith, the Fresh Prince, would be able to crack a joke? I think he's absolutely perfect, and not because he's the biggest star (bigger than Cruise) in the world right now.

Because he's got an 'Oscar-worthy yet blockbustery comedy yet drama'-ness to him that'd be perfect for Lantern.

What you have just said has shown me that you hold very little knowledge on DC characters and mythos ha. From what I'm seein you have no clue and zero background info on who John Stewart is. Not only does Will not even closely resemble Stewart what so ever but his whole voice and demeanor would be soooo off. Any DC fan would have just slapped you for saying such blaspheme hah.

**Note: And no, watching Smallville does not warrant having any knowledge over DC characters haha.

Will Smith can play any demeanor, I'm sure. I don't have to know everything about the GL mythos to think someone would make a good lantern. That'd be ridiculous! If you had to know everything about the character, only a handful of people would approve/disapprove of it all.

If I wasn't a peaceful person you would've been slapped already hah. I guess I'm only frustrated with what you said because now we are all able to witness an exact replica of how most Hollywood execs/producers/casting directors think.

You don't have to know about GL mythos to know someone would make a good lantern??? Thats easily thee dumbest thing I have heard anyone say/post in a good while. OF COURSE you need to know the mythos and the character backgrounds. Why? Because thats how you cast appropriately. Just looking at someone and saying they'd be great to play this or that character without even knowing anything about the character is simply dumb is all hell. It really hurts my head to try and understand how people could even think like that.

PLEASE PLEASE do me a favor. If you do make it into the industry, which I really believe you will, just stay away from the comic book universe. Not just for me, but for the fans in general...

I didn't say you didn't need to know anything, though.

I know my fair share about Green Lantern. I don't know the tiny details, no, but I'd say I know enough to come up with a hypothetical casting decision. Either way, if I was doing a GL movie I'd make it an origins flick and use Hal Jordan.

Reading people, characters, and the actors that play them in short amounts is how I'm sure most of casting works and is how the audience sees them anyway. Sure, you've got to know your stuff about the history of a character (if it's there for the taking), but gut reactions to actors are just as invaluable. And sometimes offer the most groundbreaking or best performances.

Ahh....I'm flattered. smile

Making a big-budget comic book movie is one of my greatest aspirations, I think. You seem to think I don't know squat, when really I just am a Marvel man. You know......the good comics. As opposed to the big DC man who wears Iron Man as his avatar. smile

Just please do your homework on the character FIRST and then cast appropriately ha.

Reading people, characters, and the actors that play them in short amounts is how I'm sure most of casting works and is how the audience sees them anyway. Sure, you've got to know your stuff about the history of a character (if it's there for the taking), but gut reactions to actors are just as invaluable. And sometimes offer the most groundbreaking or best performances.
You can't look at someone and say you'd be perfect for this character and not even know the basics about the character (Especially when it comes to a character thats already established in a book or comic - Even more so a comic because you know what this character looks like). Don't say you do because you wouldn't have brought Smith into this if you did ha. Gut reactions mean nothing at that point. You know who's be perfect to play Mohammad Ali? Micheal Clark Duncan... What?? I mean he's black right? He'd be great!

...

Ahh....I'm flattered. smile
Modestyyy.... smile

Heh, you think, huh?

As in you just watch marvel movies? Haha, Do you actually go out and buy the comics? Either way, I don't hate on either side. I love both Marvel and DC. And my main goal in life is to direct one of both. Hence why I rock Ironman in my avy while also knowing my stuff on the Lantern Corps wink

It's something I guard as not to sound like a total nerd, but I am a comic fiend in the way little kids are. I go frequently to pick up comics but I don't always feel the need to follow one specific comic. Ultimate Spiderman is my favorite so far, though. Read since the beginning, loved it.

Also read all of the original Daredevil, X-Men, and Spiderman comics from the first few years. I'm insulted you think I'm one of those people who's just seen the movie. smile

Don't get all high-and-mighty like you're the comic king and jump to conclusions, Chris. Oh, and if there was a movie solely about GL I'd want it to be an origin story and be about Hal Jordan. Justice League, the upcoming movie, is using Stewart instead. In that case, it's fine by me.

Hope you like who they're casting: Baby Boy Tyrese Gibson. smile He's also signed up to play Luke Cage in a movie of the same name, too.

Ha hey man, you never know. Thats why I asked. Theres many a people like that out there... (i.e. Hollywood) hah.

Don't get all high-and-mighty like you're the comic king and jump to conclusions, Chris.
Well I mean come on, can ya blame me? I had to finally jump to conclusions cuz you kept giving me some doo doo replys until now hah. If anything, now ya know my passion towards comic movies after seeing my reaction to Will Smith ha.

Hope you like who they're casting: Baby Boy Tyrese Gibson. smile He's also signed up to play Luke Cage in a movie of the same name, too.
Trust, if I had to, Will would go before Tyrese. But they are both wrong for the role. Tyrese is better fit for Cage buy hes still too small imo. I thought Common was signed on to play Stewart tho. And I would be happy about that because he has the whole feel for Stewart right here in this pic ha.




Still wouldn't be my first choice but he could still pull it off well. I could pull for Taye Diggs too tho for a younger modern look.

I actually liked the Timeline adaptation. I mean, I can admit that it wasn't good, but it was entertaining and close enough. Forgive me. smile

Congo, however, was bad, as far as Crichton adaptations go; as was Sphere.

I don't deny, Timeline had its good points biggrin For example, the battle scenes were nicely epic, especially considering how many practical effects were used. I just found that it lost much of the believability of the novel. Perhaps that was unavoidable, really - I didn't think Timeline was really all suitable for adaptation, so it was a nice effort.
Prey, on the other hand strikes me as a story that could work really well on film.
Ugh. I'd forgotten about Congo. Now that was bad eek
And actually I don't remember the Sphere movie too well, which probably says something about its quality.

pixleboy, that was such a great book. I don't know if it would make such a good movie. Just like the way that they did Jurassic Park. I don't know if you read the book or have even seen they movie, but it was almost two compleatly stories! They would probaly do the same thing with 'Prey'. It had a realy wierd ending that probaly wouldn't look good on film. But after saying that, I would def go see it biggrin

Heh, well for the record, I absolutely loved Jurassic Park - the film and the book. I thought it was a rather excellent adaptation. Different in many details, yes. But the idea is to capture the spirit of the story into an entirely different medium, not to transcribe the novel into on-screen events as closely as possible - I think many people miss this.
That said, I really think Prey would work just as well, if not better than JP as a film. For one, the perspective is more limited (first person) so the exposition is less intense than many Crichton novels. Definitely a plus when it comes to writing a film. I also think the mystery elements of the story would lend itself well to adaptation, especially if the pacing was done carefully. Hm, and I'm not sure I know what you mean about the ending, I think that could be pretty ace in the right hands.
I could go on, but I get the feeling I'm beginning to rant eek At any rate yes, I'd be psyched to see someone make that movie.
Hell, I'd be tempted to have a go at it myself if I had the resources biggrin

Wanted to do this all week but I've been busy, so I guess I'm late to the party. I just hope I don't end up awkwardly standing alone in the corner by the hor'doeuvres... Anyway, I thought of this a couple years ago, but just made this poster. Great topic CX3.

Here is one I made for an English assignment. We read a book called The Last Mission by Harry Mazer and had to do an "Artistic Response" to the novel so I drew up this. Just so that you can understand the poster a bit the book is about a 15 year old Jewish boy who steals his brothers ID in order to join the Air Force during World War 2. Only his plane is shot down over enemy territory and he must deal with being in a POW camp with bombs falling around him.

You shouldn't be embarassed about something you like. If you're surrounded by people that would take the piss, then maybe you're surrounded by the wrong kind of people?
