A selection of fine AI Cinema-stills (2)
Starring Terry Gilliams Batman, Fritz Langs Star Wars, that Akira Live Action movie, Wes Andersons Aliens and H.R. Giger designing Jim Hensons Labyrinth.
Here's part two of my selection of fine AI-cinema-explorations — find part one here, part three here.
After exploring the depths of 50s scifi and horror-trash from another dimension, this time we visit the alternative takes on the popculture icons such as Star Wars, Batman, Labyrinth, Alien, Akira and Dune by Jim Henson, Wes Anderson or Jodorowsky.
All of these are doors into parallel versions of the movie universes you know, each link here is a whole different branch of time where the franchise you and me know in this universe took a sharp turn and looked stunningly different from our version.

"In an attempt to bring in more Western audiences for Asian cinema, acclaimed director Akira Kurosawa worked on a version of Batman that would focus on the detective if he was from 1950s Japan.
