Doyle!

It's become a bit of a tradition now to create a poster to promote the Crazy 4 Cult show. And these posters (in the past created by Chris Lee, Andrew Wilson & Scott Campbell) pack so many movie references in one punch (and are so beautiful), it's mind-blowing! This year we asked artist Tim Doyle to create the official Crazy 4 Cult 3-D poster, and we are glad we did. Tim was our secret weapon...literally.



Here he references just about 40 weapons from cult movies, one more obscure then the next. I've wasted easily 20 full hours just trying to figure it out. Which might explain why none of the Cult artwork is hung yet. OK, so just like the last two years, we're doing a contest. Can you name the weapons seen in this Tim Doyle poster? If so, you're kind of a cult movie genius. The key is below:



And here's the thing. Send us an email, matching which movie each weapon is from with the corresponding letter or number we have assigned it. Send it to gallery1988@aol.com, with the email headline "Cult Contest 09." The winner will not only get a handful of prints from this year's Crazy 4 Cult 3-D, but also an Artist Proof of Luke Chueh's "I Asked For Scrambled" print. That thing easily is worth a few hundred bucks. You have until the show closes on August 8th to email it in. GOOD LUCK and aim high.

Are prints of this poster available for purchase? If so, where? How big , and how much are they?

Can we get a slightly larger res version of this? It's pretty hard to see some of these weapons.

How specific does the title have to be? Some of these weapons have appeared in multiple films of a given franchise. We are naming the movie as opposed to the weapon itself, right?

There is a larger image of this print in my flickr account here-

Yes, the prints should be at the gallery, and some later (maybe) on my site. Good luck!

I got all 40, but 2 appear to be from the same movie, not any sequel or remake. Are there any 2 from the same film?

You have the sword of Thundera there, which is from Thundercats, a TV show. Did they make a movie of it? And if so, where can I find it??

Thundercats movie in 2010!

The pilot episode is a TV movie, I believe.

Got 'em all now apart from from [I]. I know exactly what the gun is, but I'm damned if I can place it in a film. Any hints? (-:
