This Week In Posters with Isabel Hsu returns with the newest poster releases from Salinger and Star Trek Into Darkness, Shepard Fairey’s newest print and a multitude of prints/galleries to check out!
This week, we got a brand new poster for the upcoming documentary Salinger, set to open in January 2014.
A new set of new Star Trek Into Darkness posters features the Enterprise gang and a whole lot of blur.
Spike Lee teases us with a poster for his remake of Chan-wook Park’s 2003 cult hit, Oldboy. Doesn’t quite go for the same urban rot feeling as the original poster, but it’s still pretty awesome – creepy and sorta cheeky at the same time.
And my favorite new set has to be from Bong Joon-Ho’s international character posters for his upcoming English-language debut, Snowpiercer. The incredible cast features some familiar faces, including Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, and Octavia Spencer, but are rendered nearly unrecongizable under layers of dirt, makeup, facial hair, or all of the above.
Shepard Fairey’s ‘Peace and Justice Woman’ print will be dropping at the Obey Giant print shop on April 18, at a random time between 10 AM and 12 PM PST. The print measures 18 x 24, has a signed and numbered edition of 450, and will cost $45.
Mondo will be dropping two Repo Man prints on Tuesday, April 16 at a random time to celebrate the Criterion Collection’s upcoming Blu-Ray and DVD release of the 1984 classic.

San Francisco-based gallery SpokeArt will be presenting “Scorsese: An Art Show Tribute” in no place other than New York City, home to Travis Bickle and many more of Scorcese’s most iconic characters to hit screens.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hosts “Kick Ass!: Kung Fu Posters from the Stephen Chin Collection” at the Academy Grand Lobby exhibition. Open from Tuesday through Sunday, the Beverly Hills gallery is free and open to the public.
