Timpson Films and Drafthouse Films have just released a hilarious “children’s book” based on The ABCs of Death. But you gotta move fast. There are only 666 copies of the book available to grab. Each copy of the book contains a special edition Blu-Ray of the film that includes director commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, making-of featurettes, and trailers. The book features illustrations from Stephan Britt and verses from author Zack Carlson. Copies are selling for $37.00. READ MORE
Did enough people drop $1,300 for that insanely overpriced Leon’s Jacket Edition of Resident Evil 6? Apparently they did, because Capcom’s announced a Jill’s Watch Edition — okay, fine, it’s called the Premium edition — for Resident Evil: Revelations, which is coming to consoles on May 21st. Now they’re giving you another chance to own a piece of Resident Evil apparel by including the watch Jill Valentine wears in Revelations, as well as the soundtrack, a BSAA wallet, and copy of the game. You can get all this for the low price of ¥39,900 or a little under $470 USD.
Oh, Metro: Last Light, why do you have to be so far away. Some say the world is ending this month, but I say the apocalypse won’t happen until March, and I cannot wait. I’m prepared, too. I have my survival plan worked out, I have a map of the Metro, and I’ve been honing my skills with various weapons in nightly Halo sessions. If you want to be as prepared as I am, you should consider pre-ordering the game.
Those who do will get the Limited Edition, which comes with the game, the Ranger load-out (extra military grade bullets!), a modified AKS-74U, and access to the “Ranger Mode.” If this interests you and you own a PS3, you can grab the digital version on PSN for a special theme and a free digital copy of Homefront when Metro: Last Light releases.

Head inside to see the runner-up and to start this week’s contest! READ MORE
Tyler Stout is easily one of my favorite poster artists, consistently churning out ace work – he currently covers a good bit of wall space at my house – for some of the best classic and contemporary films around, as well as concert ads. One of the best posters he’s ever created is for John Carpenter’s The Thing, which ran as part of the Alamo Drafthouse’s Big Screen Classics series a few years back. Not only does he manage to cram the entire now-legendary ensemble cast onto the sheet, but he also captures the cold, bleak tone of the film with multiple variations of blue hues, and shows the contrast of outer space and the small, isolated research facility by using the settings as the header and footer. Occasionally, Stout will send out handbills with poster orders and this morning, he surprised blog readers by putting some for The Thing and The Big Lebowski on sale. His poster for the sci-fi horror classic goes for upwards of $600 on eBay, so for those who have always wanted one to hang on their wall, this is the next best thing. For $35 plus $5 shipping, you get a set of 15 handbills stamped and initialed by Stout. You can order the set here, and if history is any indication of how long these will be available before they sell out, I would guess the end of today, maybe tomorrow – his entire stock is completely depleted in minutes 99% of the time. Read on to check out the sweet set, and get ready to be $40 poorer.
