Fan Art Fridays: James Bond

Yesterday I started seeing the posters for the new James Bond movie, Spectre, popping up everywhere in the city. I started to think I was going crazy when I saw that Day of the Dead skeleton in the background of the poster art, but by the third poster I came across I was convinced that this was real.

This week’s Fan Art Fridays serves as my escape from this odd poster art. I’m just so used to the sleek, modern look of the James Bond franchise that I had to Google some images from the older movies to feel sane again.

I found this piece of fan art on DeviantArt which I believe is of a scene from the Casino Royale film back in 2006. The embossed fan art features Daniel Craig doing the signature “Bond sleeve cuff tug,” and Caterina Murino to his left in a gorgeous red dress. She kind of looks like Lana Del Rey a bit.

If you want a good laugh about the decision to put the Day of the Dead skeleton in the Spectre movie poster, check out this hilarious article over on The Awl.

Fan Art Fridays: Jesse Eisenberg

This weekend, the film American Ultra is out in theaters. The film’s character Mike Howell is played by Jesse Eisenberg, who had to grow his hair out really long for the part.

It’s so awkward seeing him with long hair.

It’s one thing to see Jesse Eisenberg with straight hair instead of his natural curly hair, but straight and uber long?

I’m just happy he went back to the short curliness after filming.

After being weirded out by Jesse’s hair in the trailer for American Ultra on television all week and seeing posters for the movie in pretty much every subway station, I gave in and decided to dedicate this week’s Fan Art Fridays to him.

This piece of fan art was created by artist Maartje van Hoorn. This is as much toying with Jesse Eisenberg’s hair as I can tolerate. Short and straight is fine if it’s not going to be short and curly.
