"When he grows, he will grow strong." Better than Part 1? It's an endless debate... Which is better - The Godfather: Part 1 or Part 2? Well, if you're partial to Part 2, you might want to take a look at this. French artist Laurent Durieux has created a new screen print for Francis Ford Coppola's iconic 1974 sequel The Godfather: Part II. Odd City Entertainment will be releasing the print in limited quantities starting this week, including a special edition printed on wood (!) with 12 colors that will go for $300. Again, might be worth it if you're partial to Part 2. This is one gorgeous poster and the quote at the bottom really tops it off. Here's a full look at the art by Durieux, debuted by Collider. Top version is the regular edition at $65 each. This is the variant below, which features Italian lettering. The wood version will not be using this variant. »

Marvel Studios has lifted the curtain on the official poster for Joss Whedon’s anticipated superhero sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, which sees Earth’s Mightiest Heroes come up against an army of malicious androids.
Perhaps the most interesting tidbit to come out of the poster is confirmation that Anthony Mackie will reprise his role as Sam Wilson (Falcon), though it remains to be seen just how much screen time will be afforded to Captain America’s number two.
Elsewhere on the poster, eagle-eyed fans will be able to spot newcomers in the form of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, not to mention Paul Bettany’s The Vision. Aside from that, it’s business as usual for the dysfunctional family, with Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury rounding out the cast.
Earlier this week, we learned that Avengers: Age of Ultron will boast »

Triple Oscar-winner to be honoured with the Vision Award.
The 68th Locarno Film Festival (Aug 5-15) is to give its Vision Award - Nescens to award-winning editor and sound designer Walter Murch. The award has previously been given to special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull and “Mister Steadicam” Garrett Brown.
Murch worked with George Lucas on Thx 1138 (1971) and American Graffiti (1973) and Francis Ford Coppola on The Rain People (1969), The Godfather (1972), The Conversation (1974) and The Godfather: Part II (1974).
His work with Coppola as sound designer on Apocalypse Now won him his first Oscar in 1980.
Following his own directorial debut in 1985 with Return to Oz, he subsequently won two more Academy Awards for both sound and film editing on Anthony Minghella’s The English Patient (1996) – the first and only time in history the same person has won the Oscar in both categories. In this respect he was repeating an earlier record set when he won double BAFTA awards in 1975 for »

The American Film Institute is probably best known for those lists of the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time (y'know... if it's an American production in some way). Well, every year they hold their own awards, because every group of people has to have awards. They recognize the ten best films (for this year, it's eleven due to a tie) and the ten best television programs of the year. There are not winners in these categories, but each one gets celebrated. On that front, I kind of like the AFI approach to awards. Along with the awards, AFI has put together this four and a half minute montage chronicling the last 120 years of film. Now, it would be ridiculous to cover every single year. Instead, they start with 1894's Strong Man and jump every ten years, showcasing films like Rear Window, The Godfather: Part II, Pulp Fiction, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind »
