Drew Struzan And Bob Peak Art On Display… At A Cemetery?

Two of the legends of movie poster art, Drew Struzan and Bob Peak, are getting an exhibit of their work at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale, CA. The exhibit, called The Masters Of Movie Art runs January 24th through March 26th.

 

Now some of you may be thinking… wait, isn’t Forest Lawn a cemetery? Yup. Turns out this may be one of the best kept secrets in Southern California. Forest Lawn Cemetery has a small museum that is open to the public with free admission. I’ve lived in and around Los Angeles my whole life and had never heard of it. Nor anyone I’ve asked about it since. So if you are looking for something cool to do in Los Angeles in the coming months, go check out some of the best movie poster art of all time… in a very unique place.

And I got through the article without making one cliche joke about cemeteries.

For more information you can go to the museum website or Bob Peak’s website.

The Rock: I’m Working on a DC Movie in 2014

The Rock, aka action star Dwayne Johnson, tweeted today that he's had talks with the boss of Warner Bros. about partnering for a DC Comics project in 2014. Check out his cryptically cool tweet below:

So does this mean Johnson -- once joking described as "franchise Viagra" for boosting the likes of The Mummy, G.I. Joe, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and The Fast and the Furious -- is joining Batman vs. Superman? If so as whom? Lex Luthor? Doomsday? Vandal Savage? Jimmy Olsen?! (OK, kidding on that one.)

It’s midnight here in the UK, where Head Comics Writer Rich Johnston and Head Film Writer Brendon Connelly are toasting your health. Richard has champagne from Fortnums, Brendon has Mountain Dew. But the principle is the same.

Bleeding Cool is coming up for its fifth anniversary, and there is so much to come in 2014. But for now… which were the most-read stories of the year?

It’s an interesting point. Week by week, the weekly Lying In The Gutters, measuring the popular stories of that week is usually dominated by comic book stories. But if you take the year as a whole? It’s almost all film and TV stories. Comics news, it seems, has a shorter tail…
