The inspiration for this week's Summer Movies cover

I blame Billy Corgan. I have always wanted to do an homage to the Smashing Pumpkins “Tonight Tonight” video directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. The feel and beauty of the visuals enthralled me as a teen, and I came to find out it was an homage to Georges Méliès’s silent film A Trip to the Moon.

So when it came time to make the summer movies cover, I thought I would try something a little out of the box. I assumed most people wouldn’t get it, but I think that’s the beauty of art sometimes. The point lies in the pointlessness of it.
