Curating the posters for film director Jason Reitman's LACMA Live Read series here in Los Angeles has easily been one of the coolest things we've done here at G1988. Watching Paul Rudd read the dialogue of Westley from Princess Bride or Kate Hudson reprise the role her mother originated in Shampoo has been truly insane. For each event, Jason asked us to create the night's poster, and we've jumped at the chance, employing artist Matt Owen for the job.
When Jason told us the concept for the his second to last reading, taking place next week at LACMA (it's sold out, so we're sorry for even talking about it), we couldn't believe our ears. As exclusively reported by Entertainment Weekly today, Jason will be casting a group of actors to read the script of Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs in front of a packed house. One catch though...the cast will be all black. Already announced, Terrence Howard (Mr. Blonde), Anthony Mackie (Mr. Pink), Cuba Gooding Jr. (Mr. Orange) and Anthony Anderson (Nice Guy Eddie made famous by Chris Penn). ARGH!!!! MIND BLOWN!!!! Obviously, the film's main character Mr. White (played by Harvey Keitel) hasn't been announced yet, but we all have theories.
Here's Matt Owen's Live Read exclusive print -
We will be at the event, in the courtyard of LACMA, the night of the event (Feb. 16th), selling physical copies. YOU DO NOT need a ticket to get a poster. There will also be a stand-by line, but we'll remind you next week.
While talking about Matt Owen, he will have three online exclusive prints for Multiplayer x2 that we LOVE.
That one is called In N Out, and I dare you not to giggle.
And these are a set of "Mario Bricks," but you can also buy them individually.
These editions will be small, and again only available online, so be on the lookout.
We open Multiplayer x2 tomorrow, hope to see you at G1988 Melrose for the opening reception!
