Too much KB for one wall?
That's pretty spectacular.

The detailed shots of this make it look pretty great. But, in the lower right corner, with Mr White pointing the gun at the cop car kind of throws me off. I thought in the movie he had two guns, but here he has one. Also, the size of cop car looks so much bigger than him. Or, maybe, it's just part of the composition, and him and the car are two individual elements of it. Even with that, the perspective/size of it is throwing me off.

It still looks great, I don't know if I'm in the minority with this, but I think Stout's style fits better with landscape.

Simple put ... it's about the movie.

The FP is a kick ass poster ... for what looks to be a terrible, terrible movie.

Admit I haven't see The FP, but the trailer alone lets me know it is no where near the quality of Inglourious Basterds.

Do I wish Tyler saw the movie before doing the IB poster? Yes.

Would I give my IB print up? Absofugginlutely not.

I don't think that's meant to be a whole scene. White does have two guns pointed at the cop car in the movie (if memory serves) but the shot referenced there is this one:

Ah yeah, forgot about that pose. You're definitely right that it is not the scene with him pointing at the cop car. The composition just seems a little awkward there.

I'm loving the thing and silver surfer cameos in the background though.

Ha!!! It's actually a good looking print in person.

How bad were you sweating out that Pats v Jets game this past weekend.

I was in Vegas and bet the over ... so ... got the best of both worlds on that one

I actually like the print. It's so ugly it came back around again.
The Pats...they are not dull.
You may have won money, but I was in a bar near a 20-something couple in Jets gear. Tears and abrupt silence = 24K solid gold.

I decided to modify this one a bit, just to clean up the colors to try to provide a more (what I assume) accurate depiction of the piece. Mean no disrespect at all towards TopHat. His pictures are great. I just wanted to do some post on this to get a better idea of how it looked.

I did an auto-level, sharpen, and then modified some of the colors (reds, blacks, whites, yellow), to show how it, more than likely, looks in person. Again, I haven't seen it, as I wasn't at the screening, but this is just an assumption based on me having his Kill Bill and Inglourious Basterds.

Reds are oversaturated a bit, but still is a bit more clear than what has been posted.

I like it, the composition is a little too haphazard tho

Just End The Season

Print looks great, good idea to go landscape with the film and will enjoy putting this on the wall (hopefully)...although another one added to the backlog of anticipated drops

Not sure if this is of any interest:

I saw The American Scream last weekend and wanted to track down the poster. Film was made by the guys that did Best Worst Movie, and they have copies of both Stout prints for sale in their shop.
