Slashfilm has debuted a brand new IMAX poster, set to hit theaters on March 11. The site has done a brief interview with the artist, which you can read below. Head to the gallery to check out the full-sized photo.
Peter: Were you a fan of the original Matt Reeves film Cloverfield?
Ape Meets Girl: Huge fan! I’m a sucker for a giant monster, and I thought Cloverfield nailed it. I just got back from New York yesterday and I had to scope out a few locations while I was there!
Peter: How did you get involved in creating this 10 Cloverfield Lane poster?
Ape Meets Girl: I was contacted by IMAX and then Dan. They explained they were looking for something to promote the IMAX screenings and wanted to know if I was interested. Dan told me J.J. had seen my work and loved it, so I was sold at that point (as if I needed convincing!)
Peter: I know you love to hide Easter eggs in your art, what can you tell us about the Easter eggs in this print? Did they come out of a collaboration between you and Dan?
Ape Meets Girl: Haha. Well, there are some obvious ones, like in the grass, and anyone who is following the Alternate Reality Game will be familiar with the name that appears in the post. As for the others, there are nods to the film, subtle nods, that really just appear to be part of the mailbox and the background, but once you’ve seen the film, you’ll realise their relevance. Some of them I added myself, but others were Dan’s idea, in particular he was keen to incorporate The Totally Rad Show into the image somewhere.
