With a punk-meets-minimalist aesthetic and impeccable taste in legendary guy movies, the graphic designer known only by the pen name (mouse name?) Midnight Marauder elevates fan art to fine art.
His recent poster prototypes for Alien prequel PrometheusÂ (in theaters today) have been reblogged maniacally across the webâ€”but it’s once you go a click further, to the artist’s own Tumblr, that you get the real payoff: an archive of more than 200 eye-popping homages to films from Kubrick to the Coen Brothers, Woody Allen to Ridley Scott.
You’ll be able to purchase prints soon. In the meantime, the value of Marauder’s digital masterpieces is twofold: They look sharp on your desktop background and, more importantly, provide a visual checklist of classic films you should Netflix immediately.
Bonus Feature:Â Marauder released this brand-new poster (a so-called “reject” from his 12-piece Prometheus series) about an hour before midnight premiere screenings last night.
