Yes, it’s true! A new wee snippet of info from model miniature master Steve Howarth on the use of a David Tennant Doctor Who figure to stand in for Sam Rockwell…
“We were using this figure as a scale reference and it just seemed obvious that it would only be seen from a great distance and so a felt tip pen beard onto Tennant would be enough, as it turns out, more than enough.”
So next time you’re watching MOON, you now know that when you’re watching those amazing model miniature shots of the Rovers traversing the surface of the MOON, Doctor Who is behind the wheel!
If you’ve been hanging around here over the last few years you’ll know we’ve seen some fantastic alternative poster designs from our gang of extremely talented MOON and Source Code fans. One such talented fella is Daniel Norris who’s been creating alternative movie posters for quite a while now. We’ve previously featured his clever, minimal take on Source Code, and very happy to share his MOON with you here and let you know you can check out Daniel’s work in person from Thursday 13th February at Clapham Picturehouse, along with many more of his original pieces of work.
Dan is an image maker with a passion for creating movie posters, deconstructing films, searching for a visual hook & ways of recombining key elements or iconic moments that will grab attention and hopefully live in the memory. Like this…
Take 1 – Film Posters by Dan Norris Feb 13th 2014 to March 6th 2014 at the Clapham Picturehouse. You might be able to pick up a limited edition print or two while your there, see a film too, go mad!
The challenge was laid down just over five hours ago by long time Twitter resident, film critic and smart arse Scott Weinberg:
Now I want someone to make a kids’ version of Moon. Make it about a guy who wishes for a friend but gets too many friends! 10/02/2014 16:42
The challenge was answered in some style by Elisa Fardy:
@ManMadeMoon @scottEweinberg I skipped the poster and I directly made the fake book cover. http://t.co/OsCsEbUDf8 10/02/2014 19:09
Combining the cover of Bill Waterson’s ‘Scientific Progress Goes ‘Boink’ (A Calvin and Hobbes Collection) with an image of GERTY by Charlie Marshall and a subtly placed Lunar Industries logo, Elisa came up with what MOON Director Duncan Jones could only describe as “Amazing!”
Nearly 5 years since release in 2009 we are still receiving ace MOON posters from you wonderfully creative lot! Todays addition to the collection comes from Shannon Ward who popped this one over to MOON Director Duncan Jones earlier this afternoon. For some reason I can imagine some Terry Gilliam type animation suiting this one. Thanks, Shannon

Spotted this stunning painting of Sam Rockwell as Sam Bell in MOON a while back on Reddit and waited to share as we wanted to credit the artist, contact with the chap that posted it reveals the name of the artist as simply Cameron S. Hopefully Cameron will get in touch and we can update.
Cameron has perfectly captured Sam’s emotional reaction to viewing videos from home on Earth of his wife Tess with their little girl, Eve. Reminds me of the equally brilliant painting of Eve Bell by Massimo Carnevale.
It doesn’t matter how many awards, how much great praise or how many bums on seats a film gets, the true test of it’s entrance into popular culture and the minds of those that have seen it is the porn parody.
A tribute that has evaded MOON since release in 2009, a tribute that is now one step closer however with the sighting of a porn parody poster in issue #3 of Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky’s ‘Sex Criminals’. Courtesy of Tommy V on the Twitter, please be upstanding for the premiere reveal of the poster for the porn parody of MOON…POON
Confirmation came of new cast members of Duncan Jones’ WARCRAFT last night from Legendary Pictures in the shape of Clancy Brown and Daniel Wu. No details as to which roles they have been cast in at the moment (as is the case with the previous casting news) but Brown’s casting in particular has excited Jones and inspired a new song for Chesney Hawkes and Nik Kershaw to get to work on.
Gooood morning all! I’ve got CLANCY FRIGGIN BROWN in Warcraft! I have to say it…. “There can be only one!” 19/12/2013 15:17
We’ve all been trying to figure out how Chesney Hawkes’ hit ‘The One and Only’ would be worked into WARCRAFT after being featured in both of Jones’ previous features (MOON & Source Code) and it seems after a wee think, Duncan has had a blinding flash of inspiration combining the song with a phrase from one of Clancy Brown’s most famous films ‘Highlander‘:
Hmmm…. Hmmm…. Hmmmmmm…… “There can be one and only!” 19/12/2013 15:20
