Cars 3 opens in theaters a week from today on Friday, June 16. I like these Poster Posse posters that were commissioned by the Walt Disney Studios to commemorate the upcoming release of the film.
You all know what a fan I am of Marvel Studios’ poster art and this new one sheet for Black Panther is no exception.
I love this new poster for Pixar Animation Studios’ upcoming feature film Coco.
The original Star Wars film made its debut 40 years ago today on May 25, 1977. I still vividly remember my Mom and Dad taking our family to the Center Theatre in downtown Salt Lake City that summer to see Star Wars and how wowed we all were by it. I am extremely grateful for my dear parents for this and so many other happy memories.
Here’s one of my all-time favorite Star Wars posters–the “Style A” poster designed and painted by the great American artist Tom Jung.
And as an added bonus, here’s a 40th birthday post from the official Star Wars Instagram feed:

And some of my Mormon Tabernacle Choir friends might appreciate this one, particularly after tonight’s rehearsal:
Look what was introduced today at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida!
The final day of the 2017 Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Classic Film Festival has come and gone. The festival has been great every day and it definitely ended on a high note for me.
I saw three films:
TCM programmed this film as a tribute to Carrie Fisher who died last December (TCM also paid tribute to Debbie Reynolds by screening her first film Singin’ in the Rain). The film is based on Carrie Fisher’s book of the same title; Carrie also wrote the screenplay. I loved this film in 1990 and I loved seeing it again today. Carrie’s brother Todd Fisher and Richard Dreyfus (who has a supporting role in the film) were there and gave their remarks after the screening. Sadly, I missed their commentary because I had to go get in line for the next film.
Seeing this on the big screen was a total delight. Introducing the film was director Peter Bogdanovich! Such a treat.
This was another nitrate print screening, but the film was in Technicolor. The shades of color were remarkable, unlike anything I have ever seen.
Both What’s Up, Doc? and Lady in the Dark were screened at the Egyptian Theatre.
That’s a wrap!
Many thanks to the folks at TCM who worked so hard to put on such an outstanding event. The film festival just worked very well in all regards (other than having to choose between so many good films; I wanted to see them all). Can’t wait to go back.
