George Lucas released the iconic Star Wars film in 1997 - a sci-fi epic that penetrated all forms of popular culture in the decades that followed! The film introduced cinema audiences to numerous iconic characters, spaceships, locales, and of course, the lightsaber weapon used solely by those who possess "The force" within them - namely the Jedi and Sith. With each lightsaber being unique to its user, this fictional energy sword is supposed to only able to be wielded successfully by those who have trained extensively in the ways of the Jedi, although several other characters have exhibited the ability to use a lightsaber from time to time. The powerful energy blade is able to melt and burn through many substances with relative ease, as well as inflicting a cauterized wound when it comes into contact with flesh. The sword can also be used as a defensive weapon, with the user able to deflect projectiles and other lightsaber beams. In honour of this iconic weapon, here's a set of officially licenced Displate artwork featuring the various unique lightsabers as used by the different characters in the Star Wars films!

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!

The eagerly awaited ensemble movie looks set to becoming the highest earning film of all time, already earning over $630 million worldwide in its first weekend alone!

Ten years in the making, and eighteen films building up to this moment, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is finally upon us! The long-awaited battle for the fate of the universe has finally landed in cinemas worldwide, featuring a huge superhero roster vs Thanos, who was first teased during a mid-credits scene in 2012's Avengers Assemble. For the first time ever, the Avengers join forces with the Guardians Of The Galaxy in an epic showdown with the evil overlord of the galaxy, Thanos, who is hell-bent on obtaining the six Infinity Stones - six all-powerful gems that grant the holder God-like powers - in order to power the Infinity Gauntlet and making himself omnipotent in the process.

After a short hiatus, the popular HBO show, Westworld, is back for a second season! Just like in the cult 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name, this modern re-imagining takes place in a technologically advanced Wild West-themed amusement park, where the android inhabitants look and behave just like real human people and animals. Wealthy visitors are able to act-out any Western-style fantasy that they desire, either as an upstanding citizen or an outlaw! However, just like in the classic film, the androids are ravaged by a computer virus that causes them to behave erratically, achieving a level of sentience, and endangering the lives of the park guests! To celebrate the return of the series, here's a set of matching Displate designs by artist Scar Design, featuring the show's logo and the "maze" pattern that featured heavily in the first season of the show!
When the original Doom first appeared on the MS-DOS format way back in 1993, it took the world by storm, and created an entirely new genre in the process! There had been other similar first-person shooters before it, such as the iconic Wolfenstein 3D, but Doom was a game-changer for the video game industry - not only for popularising the FPS genre, but also because of the levels of gore and violence previously not seen in a video game, contributing towards the creation of the ESRB rating system for games. Doom's popularity was in part due to the modding scene, with talented bedroom programmers altering the sprites in the game code to resemble something different. Doom II followed in 1994, and further popularised the FPS genre, thus leading to a deluge of "Doom-clone" titles to be released in a relatively short space of time, such as Hexen, Quake, and Exhumed. The FPS genre would later go on to become one of the most popular and best selling genres in the entire industry, with games like Call Of Duty and Battlefield all owing their success to the Doom franchise! To celebrate this incredible game, here's a matching set of Doom characters by artist Beegeedoubleyou, based on the classic and iconic game!
James Cameron's Terminator film franchise features one of cinema's most iconic characters - the time-travelling T-800! Originally sent by the machines to 1984 to murder Sarah Connor, the mother of a future human resistance leader John Connor, the T-800 failed and was destroyed in the process. Another similar T-800 model was re-programmed by John Connor, then sent back to 1995 in order to protect his younger self from a more advanced Terminator, the T-1000. Several other T-800's were sent back to assassinate John Connor during the film series chronology, before the series go a soft reboot in 2015 with Terminator Genisys, effectively resetting the timeline so that the previous events never occurred. A recently announced and as yet untitled sequel is slated for release in 2019, and is intended to be the second part in a planned trilogy. To celebrate this iconic character, here's a selection of Displate artwork based on the popular Terminator franchise!
The recently released cinematic reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise appears to have divided fans and critics, not quite lighting the box office on fire as expected. This new reboot film closely follows the basic plot of the 2013 video game franchise reboot by Square-Enix, with actress Alicia Vikander performing the role of the young and inexperienced Lara Croft. The film follows her adventure to the Pacific island of Yamatai in search of her missing father who was researching the mystical Himiko, but after her vessel mysteriously capsizes, Lara quickly learns how to survive in a hostile environment as she battles a shadowy organisation called Trinity, as well as the supernatural. To celebrate the return of Tomb Raider to the big screen, here's a selection of Displate artwork based on the famous video game character, Lara Croft!
