In anticipation of “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens,” Target has announced the launch of “Share the Force”, the first digital collection of Star Wars memories.  The collection, which will include celebrity fans Minka Kelly, Chris Hardwick and Bobby Moynihan, will go on to be archived at Lucasfilm – becoming an everlasting example of how we’re all connected by the force.  Until now, no one has attempted to collect and capture memories from the 147 million Star Wars fans throughout the world, and Target is introducing a unique program to unite these generations of fans in a way that only Target can do.

The “Share the Force” website offers an interactive and shareable way for fans to find their place in the Star Wars galaxy by including their personal memories, resulting in a collection that will span generations, cultures and continents.  Starting today, fans can submit their memories (either photo or story) at ShareTheForce.Target.com to transform their memory with a Star Wars hologram treatment and receive their own galactic coordinates pointing to their permanent place in the galaxy.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Godzilla Print By Laurent Durieux On August 28, 2015

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Warner Bros Entertainment, will release a print based on one of the most influential and classic of all Sci-Fi films, Godzilla.

First appearing in 1954, Godzilla’s impact and influence on worldwide culture is both inescapable and undeniable! The artist chosen for this Seminal Film Series project is Laurent Durieux and the poster will be released this Friday, August 28, 2015.

The essence of DHM’s Seminal Film Series is to showcase an artist’s work in print in a manner that is visually striking, compelling, and hopefully at times, provocative. Dark Hall Mansion feels Laurent has done just that with his Godzilla. His pieces do not just entertain but provoke thought and consideration. His Standard edition’s color palette evocatively underscores his visual’s powerful thematics while his Variant edition has a darker intensity harkening to the film’s black and white origins, its visuals strikingly offset with only Godzilla’s name rendered via kanji.

You can read a great interview with the artist about this project on blurppy.com HERE.

Secret Cinema Lets Star Wars Fans Experience Movie In New Way

Unknown-724x1024

Secret Cinema has been putting on cinematic events for many years. They take a well-known movie or cult film and literally transport you to the period in which the film took place. Last year, Secret Cinema brought the 1950’s town of Hill Valley from Back to the Future to life, and this year they’ve applied the same magic to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

5-2

After two years in the making, Secret Cinema literally transports you from a secret meeting place in London into the world of Star Wars. You need to dress appropriately (full instructions are given prior to attending), adopt your own given Star Wars name, and then open yourself up and let yourself go.

TomorowlandBlurayComboArt

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release director Brad Bird’s family adventure Tomorrowland on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) on October 13, 2015.

From the two-time Oscar winner, Bird’s Tomorrowland offers a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award-winner George Clooney.

Featuring a screenplay by “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, Tomorrowland promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.

The film also stars Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson.

Grey Matter Art To Release Thor Print By Matt Ferguson On August 20, 2015

Grey Matter Art, under license from Marvel Studios is proud to present a new officially licensed, limited edition screen print for the super-hero action film, “Thor.” This is the first poster Grey Matter Art has produced for “Thor” and has chosen to work with the very talented artist, Matt Ferguson. This is the second release with Matt, and it is a great companion piece to his previously released “Iron Man” Poster.

Here is what Matt Ferguson had to say about the project:

“Thor is one of the best subjects to make a poster about because it is unique film in the Marvel Universe. I love the cosmic aspect to the setting crossed with a strong fantasy vibe. I tried to get that across in my poster by using the rainbow bridge and Bifrost. I also wanted the composition to fit in with the Iron Man poster I have already produced for Grey Matter Art but give the art a more pulpy sci-fi edge.”

Mike Gregory added:

“Working with Matt again has been such a great experience. This project was so fun to work on and amazing to finally see what he came up with in the end. I really like how this poster and his previous Iron Man work so well together. Matt is a fantastic artist and I am always excited to see what he has coming up.”

This poster will be released on Thursday, August 20th on our website shop page at a random time between 1:00-2:00 PM est. at www.greymatterart.com.

The album also features a rendition of “It’s a Small World” performed by all of the artists.

“In choosing the artists to appear on We Love Disney, we tried to cover the whole spectrum,” David Foster says. “I wanted great singers. That’s always been my mandate. We set the bar high and everyone who came in absolutely killed it. The vocals on this album are spectacular.”

We Love Disney will be released in several configurations, including as a digital album, a standard CD, a Deluxe CD, on Deluxe Vinyl, and as a picture-disc set. The Deluxe versions feature two bonus tracks from Verve Records’ artists Brenna Whitaker (“It’s Not Easy Being Green” from The Muppet Show) and Yuna (“A Whole New World” from Aladdin).
