Clever Posters for Imagined Superhero Movies From Hollywood’s Golden Age

These days, the comic book adaptation feels like the engine that’s driving Hollywood; though we get fewer of them than you might think (Ant-Man is only the second of three this summer, for example), they suck up a disproportionate amount of our attention (to say nothing of studio budgets).

Christian Kracht’s ‘Imperium’ is a Melvillean Masterpiece of the South Seas

Long of toenail and hair and beard, the eccentric August Engelhardt shunned clothing and subsisted entirely on coconuts; he was, in other words, a nudist and cocovore.

Miley Cyrus may hosting the VMAs this year, but Taylor Swift is set to dominate the MTV awards show with a whopping nine nominations. Most of Swift’s nods are for her you-can’t-sit-with-us “Bad Blood” video that doubled as one big shout-out to her girl-gang. Also, Kendrick Lamar was there for some reason. …Read More
