Death of SupermanDeath of SupermanAnyone remember when Superman died and then came back to life back in the 90s? Well, Max Landis does, and he's created a hyper, almost drunken version of it for our viewing enjoyment.

Landis (the son of famed Animal House director John Landis and screenwriter of Chronicle) has released The Death and Return of Superman, which is basically his version of what happened in the comics back then. I'm not sure I agree with some of his opinions, especially about "comic book death", but it's still an entertaining use of your time to view it.

Don CorneliusDon CorneliusDonald Cortez "Don" Cornelius was found dead this morning of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. 

Originally a journalist inspired by the civil rights movement, rx Cornelius recognized that in the late 1960s there was no television venue in the United States for soul music, physician and introduced many African-American musicians to a larger audience as a result of their appearances on Soul Train, look a program that was both influential among African-Americans and popular with a wider audience. As writer, producer, and host of Soul Train, Cornelius was instrumental in offering wider exposure to black musicians such as James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Michael Jackson, as well as creating opportunities for talented dancers that would presage subsequent television dance programs. Cornelius said "We had a show that kids gravitated to," and Spike Lee described the program as an "urban music time capsule."

What if Modern Blockbusters Were Made in Another Era? PDF Print E-mail

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...What if Die Hard was made in the 70s and starred Leonard Nimoy in the role that made Bruce Willis an action star? What if John Wayne starred as the title role in Superman: The Movie? How about William Shatner in Avatar?

The Daily Mail online has a great article today, showing what movie posters would have been like if they had been made in an earlier time period.

The pictures were created by Peter Stults, an artist who saw another designer produce similar artwork and decided to take the idea forward.

Peter, 29, from New York, told MailOnline: "I started doing general fictional movie posters while studying film at University of California, Santa Cruz back in the early 2000s.

"Between my two favourites, Avatar and Fifth Element, there are probably nearly 60 pieces of sci-fi pulp book covers and b-movie posters mixed in. They involved a lot of digging and exploring on the internet.

"Then with the actors (in the posters) it's a mix of looking at film history, getting a sense of who were the leads at that time, or looking at genre pieces and seeing who played what kind of role."
