One of the biggest talking points at last year's Zarjaz! gallery was Tom Newell's HUGE Judge Dredd plaque.

Studiocanal To Release John Carpenter Classics In Brand New 4K Restorations With New Art By Matt Ferguson
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.
For those of you who like to hang things on your wall, Vice Press will also be collaborating with Grey Matter Art to release limited edition posters featuring the artwork for each film in the coming months. SIGN UP TO OUR NEWSLETTER FOR UP TO DATE RELEASE INFO.
