Solo: A Star Wars Story is currently dividing fans of Star Wars, and is also struggling to earn back its $250 million budget at the box office, so far falling short by $70 million as it enters its second week in theatres. With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom due to be launched within the next week, it seems unlikely that Solo will break even, with many people blaming the close release schedule to The Last Jedi, and behemoth May blockbusters such as Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2. Poor box office performance aside, here's a matching set of official Displate artwork featuring some of the characters from the film for those who enjoyed it.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is finally hitting cinemas around the world! A stand-alone story set between Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope, Solo follows the backstory of a young Han Solo telling a swashbuckling tale of how he met his friend, Lando Calrissian, and his beloved Wookiee companion, Chewbacca, as well as acquiring the iconic ship, the Millennium Falcon! The film is reported to have cost Disney $250 million to make, and is expected to easily break that during its first week in theatres, despite mediocre critical reviews. To celebrate the release of Solo, here's a selection of Displate artwork featuring the loveable rogue himself, Han Solo!

As expected, Deadpool 2 is tearing up movie theatres around the world having already broken the record for an opening weekend for an R-rated film, and knocking Avengers: Infinity War from the top spot. The well-received sequel starring Ryan Reynolds has already earned back the $110 million budget, and looks on course to break the half billion Dollar threshold before it finishes its cinema run! The film has so far resonated well with audiences, and helps set-up a potential X-Force movie in the near future, progressing 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise. To celebrate the release of this fan-favourite, here's another selection of Displate artwork featuring the merc with a mouth, Deadpool!
The hugely anticipated sequel to 2016's surprise blockbuster, Deadpool, is finally here! Deadpool 2 is launching in cinemas around the world, and once again follows the hi-jinks of the fourth wall breaking titular character played by Ryan Reynolds, alongside a much larger cast of superhero and anti-hero characters from Marvel's X-Men universe. The previous film broke new ground for R-rated comic book films, proving that there is a place for a foul-mouthed and violent comic book character. The success of the previous film prompted 20th Century Fox to commission a sequel, which sees Deadpool protecting a vulnerable young mutant from the time-traveller Cable. To celebrate the release of Deadpool 2 in theatres, here's a selection of Displate artwork based on the Merc With A Mouth, Wade Wilson!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPCULART!
Hello to all my fellow Displate artists and collectors! I don't often break the fourth wall, but when I do it's usually to announce a great achievement - and this time is no exception. I would like to officially announce that the PopCulArt website is ONE YEAR OLD today!
One year ago I started the PopCulArt project as a way to better aid Displate collectors to find new artwork, and to also help out the struggling artists by promoting their artwork. The intent was to provide popular culture fans with an easy-to-navigate interface to enable easy access to their favourite Displate artwork categories with just a few clicks, as well as help give the various artists some much-needed exposure in order to generate more sales for them. After drafting a basic idea for a website, I set about creating the site you see before you. My inaugural blog post was made on the 8th of May 2017!
Over the last twelve months the PopCulArt website has grown, as has the social media following for the site. I have made many new friends via social media over the last year, and I feel that I have brought the Displate community closer together, and have helped several artists with minor issues along the way. Displate in turn has also undergone several major changes (for the better) during this time, such as offering new poster sizes and new products, but each change means that PopCulArt has had to adapt. Displate has recently made a very positive change to enable Displate merchants to better promote single artworks, and as a result I find myself once again making changes to the PopCulArt website in order to provide you guys with the best possible service that I can.
However... These changes are going to take a little time to implement, as I want to be thorough. Some areas of the PopCulArt website may not work as expected while the changes are being implemented, and some sections will disappear entirely to make way for something new and better. The site will still remain functional while I make improvements, but if a specific page looks a mess or incomplete, then that is likely because I am working on the particular section of the site. I aim to have the updates finished as soon as humanly possible, although I am simultaneously updating the PopCulArt Pinterest page as well as revising some older blog posts. I can only apologise in advance for any disruption that may be caused during this time.
