film '80.

Found a few dog eared copies of Variety down the back of the sofa giving a sneak peek into the world of cinematic sales techniques.....So, how many of these gems actually made it into production?

people you fancy but shouldn't (part 52).

With Game of Thrones ready to burst forth onto our screens for a fifth series it's only right that we should honour one of the shows unsung heroines, the uniquely yumsome Gilly as portrayed by Hannah Murray and nominated by Mr Stuart of Dudley.

Easy tiger.

son of super fly (poster) guy.

All these tales of the Ugandan film industry have reminded me that it's gone a wee bit quiet recently in my film poster producing country of choice. As regular readers with long memories (and short nails) may remember the Arena has covered the amazing artwork produced to advertise movies released (both legally and otherwise) in Ghana (both here and here) in depth before but I reckon it's about time for some more examples of advertising art at it's best.


And if that's not enough you can find out more about the countries seemingly endless obsession with busty babes (stand up and be counted Anita Acheampong) becoming possessed by demons here.

You can thank me later.
