John Carpenter shoots video for 'They Live' Screening

The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas is hosting a screening of the cult favorite "They Live" on Thursday June 9th, and will be showing a special treat from John Carpenter himself: a video in which he reflects on 'They Live', and its prescience with regards to a media-saturated culture. He also unveils Shepard Fairey's Mondo 'They Live' artwork. You may be familiar with Fairey's previous artwork, which includes the iconic "Obey" street art seen above and the "Hope" Obama poster. Fairey had a lot to say about the influence They Live had on his artwork:

Game: "Hobo with a Shotgun"

It's nothing new to see a video game released to accompany a major movie premiere. Granted, most of them suck and are nothing more than quick cash ins, but it's still not a new concept. However, you never see this on an indie level. So of course, with us being both movie enthusiasts AND gaming nerds, when we heard the director of Hobo with a Shotgun, Jason Eisener was teaming up with Mondo, the Alamo Drafthouse, Magnet Releasing and GameSalad to make a tie-in video game exclusively for Apple's App Store, we were pretty interested.

Beer, Horror Screenings, and Beautiful Posters

We get requests to promo stuff pretty often, which are usually met with a healthy dose of snarky indifference. However, we are occasionally surprised with something really cool, and we got a tip from the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas about some awesome posters for upcoming film screenings (above and left). The "Night of the Creeps" screening will also apparently be included in the DVD extras for the upcoming release of that film, so if you're in the area, be sure to check that out.
