The poster is one piece of a 12-part weekly advertising series to promote the drama — months in advance of the show’s debut. The teaser campaign coincides with HBO re-airing season two of the vampire drama on air.
The Red Vic Movie House on Haight street in San Francisco has been producing limited edition posters to celebrate their 30th year as one of the last great surviving movie houses.
To celebrate this anniversary, two amazing and detailed posters were created by Zoltron. The first image is for Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr Fox and the second is for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Sadly both prints are completely sold out but you should bookmark this site for any future releases from this fantastic artist!
Wanted: Luxury-loving couples available to globetrot for six months and get paid to test out the most romantic wedding and honeymoon destinations around the world.
It’s a hard offer to resist, but what’s being described as “The Ultimate Job” is just the latest in a series of recent dream positions to capture the public’s imagination and serve as a brilliant marketing tool for people and places.
“It’s been sort of crazy,” said Rosemarie Meleady, managing director of RunawayBrideAndGroom.com, describing the response to the new promotion.
The Irish travel agency came up with the idea in part after seeing last year’s blockbuster “Best Job in the World” campaign in Australia.
More than 1,000 couples have already applied for the chance to be sent to resorts in Africa, Europe, Asia and the United States.
The winners will be asked to blog about their experiences a few times a week “when they can get out of the hammock after sipping a glass of champagne,” Meleady said, and write for The Irish Times once a month.
They will also be paid 20,000 euros (about $27,000). Hopefuls have until April 7 to apply for the “horrendous assignment” — as the company teasingly calls it — which starts mid-May. Read more HERE.

Barely a month after Action Comics #1 and Detective Comics #27 sold for record prices, the first appearance of Superman has broken another barrier.
The Associated Press reports that a copy of the 1938 comic went for $1.5 million this morning on the auction website ComicConnect, jumping past the $1.075-million record price paid on Feb. 25 for a copy of Detective Comics #27. That issue broke a record $1 million paid just three days earlier for another copy of Action Comics #1.
Before last month, the top price paid for a comic was $317,000 in 2009 for Action Comics #1.
About 100 copies of the issue are believed to exist, and only a handful of those are in good condition. It has a cover price of 10 cents.
