Midnight Movies: Raging Bull

Film buffs and design fans rejoice—you can now take home your very own visually gripping piece of cinema history from LA graphic artist (and dedicated cinephile) Midnight Marauder.

Marauder gained internet buzz recently for his quietly chilling concepts for Prometheus and Drive. For his inaugural set of limited-edition prints, though, the artist delved deep into his archives—selecting a classic homage to 1980′s brooding boxer biography Raging Bull, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert De Niro (whose portrayal of troubled, tough-as-nails boxer Jake LaMotta earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor).

Details for ordering an 18×24 screen-printed poster of your own can be found here. It’s a limited run of 250, so don’t procrastinate. (We have #22 at home, and trust us: The print looks even better in person.) While you’re waiting for the mailman, go ahead and re-watch Raging Bull this weekend—here’s the original trailer to get you started:
