VOTING FOR THE SECOND ROUND IS CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE HERE!

After some considerably tough battles this week, these three definitely took the cake:

LOOPER vs TOY STORY

FRANKENSTEIN vs BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

And the battle of the week goes to…

DRIVE vs BRAZIL

Believe it or not, Brazil held on to a close lead up until late Wednesday evening. After Mondo dropped a tweet about the brackets, a surge of 200 votes came in within hours that completely turned the tide on this one. You can check the bracket for the complete vote tally from each match up.

BIGGEST WINNER

Ken Taylor had a great first round as he saw three of his for competing prints advance to the second round of the tournament. The only print of his that failed to advance was his Hulk print.

BIGGEST LOSER

Marint Ansin had a tough first round. Going in to the tournament, he had the most prints entered of any artists (six total), but only two managed to advance to the second round. Both face uphill battles this week going against Princess Mononoke and Horkey’s Lord of the Rings. Fans of Ansin need to step up this week and throw their votes his way to help keep him alive going in to next week.

If I had to call an upset of the week, I would probably have to award it to E.T. for taking out Akira. Akira was actually a print that was inserted in to the bracket after many fans felt it deserved a spot over some of the other prints that were there. E.T. managed to completely dominate that matchup however by more than doubling up on the amount of votes that Akira managed to get. Below you will a breakdown for vote tallies on each match up.

As we head into the second round, the match ups will be all the more tighter. Looking to the week ahead, I predict the three toughest match ups will be:

HALLOWEEN vs THE IRON GIANT

SHAUN OF THE DEAD vs THE AVENGERS

20,000 LEAGUES vs THE THING

Thanks to everyone who voted! Without you guys, this wouldn’t be possible, and certainly wouldn’t be this much fun!
