John Carpenter Quad Series by Matt Ferguson

Posted on

Last year Vice Press co-founder and creative director Matt Ferguson had the honour of working with STUDIOCANAL on the release of their brand new 4k restorations of four of John Carpenter’s most iconic titles: THE FOG, THEY LIVE, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and PRINCE OF DARKNESS. All four brand new 4k restorations were done using the original camera negatives, with the colour grading approved for the new restorations and UHD versions by the films' Cinematographers: Gary B Kibbe and Dean Cundey. 

As part of the release, each film was screened in cinemas across the U.K and featured brand new theatrical posters designed and illustrated by Matt, who is a huge John Carpenter fan. The response to these posters was amazing and from the 10th of January, for one week only, Vice Press and Grey Matter Art will be giving you the opportunity to purchase these posters in their classic cinema quad sizes, a huge 40x30 inches.

“Last year I had the distinct pleasure of being hired by StudioCanal to work on the 4K John Carpenter classics. I conceptualised and made all of the key art for the films. It was a dream job for me and I am really happy the art came out pretty much exactly as I intended. My ideal versions of the art are the UK quad size, it's the way the art was intended to be viewed and also my personal favourite dimensions for movie posters, so I am really happy that we are getting to make these available to people."Matt Ferguson

Each poster will retail for £50/ $60 or all four can be purchased as a set for the discounted cost of £150/ $190. Each print will be signed and numbered by the artist and the total size of the edition will be based on the number of posters ordered during this period. Each poster is a 30"x40' (inch) fine art print, printed on 250gsm Vitesse Silk Paper.

As a special bonus, customers ordering the full set will also receive a bonus, never before released mini print. 

THE FOG, THEY LIVE, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and PRINCE OF DARKNESS will be released via Vice Press (www.Vice-Press.com) and Grey Matter Art (www.GreyMatterArt.com) at 5pm U.K time/ 12pm EST/ 9am PST on the 10th of January and available until the same time on the 17th of January. Edition size will be dictated by number of prints purchased during this period.

Posted on

As we gear up for both Thought Bubble in Leeds, U.K on September 22nd and 23rd and New York Comic Con in October with our friends at Bottleneck, we wanted to share details of an exciting project featuring art by our very own Matt Ferguson.

STUDIOCANAL will be releasing brand new 4k restorations of some of the master of ‘80s sci-fi, fantasy and horror, John Carpenter’s most iconic titles: THE FOG, THEY LIVE, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and PRINCE OF DARKNESS. All four brand new 4k restorations were done using the original camera negatives, with the colour grading approved for the new restorations and UHD versions by the films' Cinematographers: Gary B Kibbe and Dean Cundey. 

Each title is now available to pre-order at various outlets, but Zavvi have collected everything together on one useful page found here.

This Autumn, audiences will also have the rare opportunity to experience the spectacle of Carpetner’s much-loved cult classics on the big screen looking better than ever. 
THE FOG will receive its restoration premiere at The London Film Festival on October 15. From October 26, THEY LIVE and PRINCE OF DARKNESS will screen as a precursor to the big Halloween one-night special of THE FOG. Ticket booking information will 
Be announced soon. 
ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK will be screened at cinemas across the U.K for one day only on November 22nd. 

Matt has created artwork for each film and audiences will be able to appreciate the new 4K restorations at home when all films, complete with brand new and “best of” extras material, are released across Home Entertainment platforms including UHD for the very first time. A very special, 4-disc Collectors Edition will be available of THE FOG, THEY LIVE, and ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, that will also include a copy of the film’s seminal soundtracks composed and performed by John Carpenter himself.
