E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Print By John Alvin

We are thrilled to announce the partnership of ISH x Bottleneck Gallery x Vice Press with Andrea Alvin and the John Alvin Estate.  John Alvin’s legendary career is unmatched in cinema illustration / design as he created art and theatrical posters for legendary films like Gremlins, Blade Runner and E.T.. 

Each poster released in the John Alvin series will be sourced from original art and files from John’s archive and will be approved, not only by the studio, but by Andrea Alvin with a signed and embossed certificate.

Up first is E.T…. one of the most successful films of all time and beloved by the world over. The classic original theatrical poster was created by John Alvin and nobody had any idea of the impact it would cause! Seemingly everywhere today, this image was painted by John using very little reference from the actual film as the studio wanted to keep E.T. hidden prior to the film’s release.

The print will be available as a timed-edition release, alongside a limited variant, from Thursday (April 18) at 12PM EST through Monday (April 22) at 12PM ET at bottleneckgallery.com as well as on Vice-Press.com at 5PM GMT.

Suntup Editions Announces Covers Collection Skeleton Crew Print By J.K. Potter

Suntup Editions announces their latest addition to The Covers Collection, J.K. Potter’s incredible art from the limited edition of Skeleton Crew by Stephen King. Although the artwork did not appear on the cover of the limited edition, it has become so iconic, and indelibly associated with it, that Suntup Editions felt it deserved a place in the series.

Only 52 lettered and 1,000 numbered copies were produced, making it a sought after treasure among Stephen King collectors. Potter’s depiction of the grim skeleton in a hard hat featured in glorious color became an instant fan favorite.

These prints are hand-signed by Potter, who has also created a Remarque on the first 20 large prints — five of which are available for purchase at the time of the release, so act fast on those.

Batman: The Animated Series – Season One Print Showcase By George Caltsoudas

This Friday, April 12, 2019 Bottleneck Gallery will be striking terror into the hearts of Gotham’s criminals with George Caltsoudas Batman: The Animated Series showcase!

Batman: The Animated Series is arguably the definitive interpretation of the Caped Crusader outside of comics. Paul Dini and Bruce Timm created the ultimate love letter to the entire Batman universe, and the show has since become a cartoon classic. 

Last year, George Caltsoudas took on a personal illustrative project to create art for his favorite episodes from the show, and we’ve been skulking in the shadows, eagerly waiting to work with him on creating officially licensed prints from his project! George’s gorgeous prints parallel the “dark deco” design that the show pioneered, while also showcasing George’s unique interpretation of each episode.

Batman: The Animated Series – Season 1 by George Caltsoudas
Giclee prints
Hand-numbered (editions vary)
16 x 20 inches
$40 each

George’s entire showcase of prints will be available for purchase on Friday April 12, 2019 at 12PM ET HERE.

Check Out These New Aladdin Character Posters

The time is quickly approaching and anticipation is growing higher for the upcoming live-action adaptation of the acclaimed 1992 Disney classic Aladdin and the studio has just released four new posters highlighting each of the four main iconic characters.

Two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, Men in Black) stars as the Genie in the new film alongside Mena Massoud (Amazon’s Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, the hapless but lovable street rat who is smitten with the Sultan’s daughter. Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) stars as Princess Jasmine, the Sultan’s beautiful daughter who wants to have a say in how she lives her life with Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express) as Jafar, an evil sorcerer who devises a nefarious plot to unseat the Sultan and rule Agrabah himself.

Aladdin also stars Navid Negahban (Homeland) as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (Saturday Night Live) as Dalia, Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods) as Prince Anders, and Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and head of the palace guards. In addition, Wreck-It Ralph‘s Alan Tudyk has also signed on to voice Jafar’s iconic parrot sidekick Iago.

Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) from a screenplay by John August (Dark Shadows, Big Fish) based on the 1992 animated film Aladdin and stories from “One Thousand and One Nights.” The producer is Dan Lin (The LEGO Movie) with Golden Globe winner Marc Platt (La La Land), Jonathan Eirich (Death Note) and Kevin De La Noy (The Dark Knight Rises) serving as executive producers. Eight-time Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid) provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar-winning lyricists Howard Ashman (Little Shop of Horrors) and Tim Rice (The Lion King) as well as two new songs written by Menken and Oscar and Tony Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen).

Aladdin was nominated for five Academy Awards and won two, including Best Original Score and Best Original Song for “A Whole New World.” Based on the Middle-Eastern folktale Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, the 1992 animated film was co-directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, who had previously-directed The Little Mermaid and would go on to make other Disney classics, including Hercules, Treasure Planet, The Princess and the Frog, and Moana. It famously featured Robin Williams as the film’s genie, along with Scott Weinger as Aladdin, Jonathan Freeman as Jafar, Linda Larkin as Princess Jasmine, Frank Welker as Aladdin’s monkey pal Abu, plus Douglas Seale as The Sultan, and Gilbert Gottfried as Iago.

The film is set to debut in theaters May 24.

Check Out The Dark Phoenix WonderCon Poster 

20th Century Fox has released the exclusive Dark Phoenix WonderCon poster, which everyone attending the panel at the event will receive a copy of.

In Dark Phoenix, the X-Men face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bring back much of the cast of the new films, which also includes Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), and Evan Peters (Quicksilver). Lamar Johnson of The Next Step has joined the cast in a mystery role and the mutant Dazzler will reportedly play a part in the film.

Simon Kinberg is writing and directing the film, marking his directorial debut. He will also produce alongside Lauren Shuler Donner and Hutch Parker. X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set to open in theaters on June 7.

Check Out The Addams Family Poster

MGM has released the first poster for the upcoming animated reboot of The Addams Family, which will make you question whether your family is really all that strange.

Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas & Friends, Day of the Diesels) direct a voice cast led by Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Annihilation) as Gomez Addams, with Academy Award winner Charlize Theron (Atomic Blonde, Mad Max: Fury Road) as Morticia Addams, Chloë Grace Moretz (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, If I Stay) as Wednesday Addams, Finn Wolfhard (It, Netflix’s Stranger Things) as Pugsley Addams, Nick Kroll (Big Mouth, Sing) as Uncle Fester, Bette Midler (Hocus Pocus, Beaches) as Grandmama, Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade) as Margaux, and Academy Award winner Allison Janney (I, Tonya) as the family’s arch nemesis Margaux Needler.

Vernon and Tiernan co-direct from Matt Lieberman’s screenplay based on Charles Addams’ iconic cartoon series. The film will be produced by Vernon with Gail Berman, via her shingle The Jackal Group, and Alex Schwartz. It will be executive produced by Andrew Mittman, Kevin Miserocchi and Joe Earley. Tabitha Shick, MGM’s Executive Director, Worldwide Motion Pictures is overseeing the project on behalf of the studio. CG Animation and digital visual effects production is underway in Vancouver at Cinesite Studios, one of the world’s most highly respected independent digital entertainment companies.

Based on the famous New Yorker creations of Charles Addams, this animated action-comedy will follow the Addams family whose lives begin to unravel when they face-off against a crafty reality-TV host while also preparing for their extended family to arrive for a major celebration, Addams-style.

Morticia, devilishly devoted to her husband and children, is the pale glue that holds her clan together. Gomez, debonair, sinister and passionately in love with his wife, is enthusiastic about whatever dreadful scheme he’s cooked up. Wednesday is a brilliant and sinister teenage girl with long braids and deadpan wit. Pugsley, a menacing 10-year-old on over-drive, enjoys getting into any kind of dreadful mischief he can find. Mad Uncle Fester is good-natured, merry and likes to create mayhem any way he can. Grandmama is smitten with her grandchildren who enjoy her cookies shaped like bats and skulls. Margaux Needler, the reality TV makeover queen, is consumed with a desire for absolute suburban, pastel perfection.

The Addams Family will be distributed theatrically in the U.S. by MGM on October 11, 2019.
