Mind Blowing 56' Epic ILYA MUROMETS 4K Restoration

Deaf Crocodile Films will digitally release the 4K restoration of famed fantasy filmmaker Aleksandr Ptushko’s visually stunning 1956 medieval epic ILYA MUROMETS (THE SWORD & THE DRAGON) on June 28th in North America following its Blu-ray release last month. 

Legendary fantasy filmmaker Aleksandr Ptushko’s sweeping, visual FX-filled epic is one of his most enchanting achievements: a stunning Cinemascope ballad of heroic medieval knights, ruthless Tugar invaders, wind demons, and three-headed fire-breathing dragons. The film stars Boris Andreyev as the bogatyr (warrior) Ilya, a mythic figure in the Kyivan Rus’ culture that pre-dated both modern Ukraine and Russia (much of the film’s action is set in Kyiv, and Ilya’s relics are held today in the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra monastery). Based on a series of famous byliny (oral epics), the film follows Ilya as he wages a decades-long battle against the Tugars who threaten his homeland, kidnap his wife, and raise his own son to fight against him.

Juan Muniz (Ninobuni) Painting Live This Weekend at EDC - Matching NFTs Available

Ninobuni World

This weekend May 20-22 you'll find Juan Muniz / Ninobuni painting three murals live in Las Vegas at EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival).

While it's not the first time Juan has painted live at an EDM festival (or the second, or the third), this is the first time that he will be releasing NFTs of his mural artwork simultaneously!

Ninobuni World is a lifestyle brand based off the artwork and imagination of artist and illustrator Juan Muniz. Being diagnosed with Depression and anxiety, Juan's artwork has always been focused on expressing his emotions and thoughts. In a world where mental health is not commonly spoken out loud, Juan wanted to take his art and create a brand that not only tries to start the conversation about mental health but also help break the stigma that surrounds speaking up and attempting to get help. Every character living in the Ninobuni World are just like us. They represent different feelings and emotion as well as diagnoses that effect us all in the world we live in today. We hope to help people understand Mental Health a little better while opening up to others to reach the goal of ending the silence.

She-Hulk Trailer Drops - We All Freak Out

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law on Disney+

She-Hulk was spiraling. While seemingly balancing her duties with The Avengers and a New York nightlife that would make Paris Hilton blush, Jennifer Walters left all manner of calamity, chaos, and cleanup (specifically for Jarvis, the house butler) in her wake and her human persona far behind her. Jarvis demanded She-Hulk's eviction, and as the true leader of the Avengers, it was so. Now forced to fend for herself, the diminutive and very vulnerable Jennifer is hired by a superhuman law firm to fight for powered individuals, not with fists, but with the full weight of the AMERICAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM!! And so...the hijinks begin. 

While the new Disney+ She-Hulk TV series seems to divert a bit from this storyline, it seems they've kept the comedic beats, and with acting powerhouse Tatiana Maslany in the lead role....we prepare ourselves for greatness.
