Daily | “Strange Lands: International Sci-Fi”

Strange Lands: International Sci-Fi, the week-long series opening today at New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center, "is an artfully eclectic journey across psychic terrain as well as geopolitical boundaries," finds the Kristin M. Jones in the Wall Street Journal. In the New York Times, Eric Hynes notes that the series "runs the gamut from space-age sex farce to dystopian nightmare and travels to such lost worlds as Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union." We've gathered previews of Gottfried Kolditz’s In the Dust of Stars (1976), Herrmann Zscoche’s Eolomea (1972), Aleksandr Sokurov's Days of Eclipse (1988), Karel Zeman's The Fabulous World of Jules Verne (1958) and more. » - David Hudson

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day,” Part 3

  • MUBI
Above: Japanese poster for Zero Dark Thirty (Kathryn Bigelow, USA, 2012); Designer: unknown.

Since I’ve now been running the Movie Poster of the Day Tumblr for a year and a half I thought it was high time I did another six month round-up of the most popular posters on the blog.

For some reason this Japanese poster for Zero Dark Thirty—an even more striking version of the American teaser—which I posted three months ago recently went semi-viral, racking up over 1,400 “notes” to date, making it by far the most popular (in as far as likes and reblogs really gauge popularity) in the history of the blog which now has, according to Tumblr, over 198,000 followers.

I’m especially pleased with the popularity of the second and third ranked posters: a couple of quite eccentric pieces of Eastern European illustration for lesser known films. It’s probably no surprise that
