The infamous street artist puts fans and media into a frenzy over new release.

Street artist Banksy is renowned for making both fans and the media jump through hoops when it comes to finding any information about his work. His niche comes in the form of creating and posting exceptional art onto walls all over the world without any pre-hype, post-hype or even a mention of his name. The unknown is evidently an effectual part of his appeal, especially when it comes to his upcoming project.

The “Better Out Than In – The Movie” was ‘announced’ this week via a simple image revealed on his most recent website update. He’s added a ‘films’ section on the lefthand navigation bar, (which normally simply reads ‘outside,’ ‘inside,’ and ‘links,’) that links to a page with a screenshot of a YouTube video with the title of the movie and of course without any note or message to suggest any further details, or in fact if it actually exists. Street art sites have gone into meltdown contemplating when it will be released, what it’s about and who it features. Streetartnews.com believes, “we can expect the almost 3 minutes long trailer to hit YouTube in the coming days.”

Other updates to his website included several never-seen-before original pieces, some of which referred back to his “Better Out Than In” NYC residency. The traditional Q+A page has returned, this time answering questions in reference to his recent mural he created in Cheltenham, UK, which saw a stencil of three government secret agents spying on phone conversations via a traditional UK phone box. It also features a black and white illustration of a dying Dumbo surrounded by celebrating militants from the parody video he revealed on day 6 of his Better Out Than In residency back in October of 2013. In addition, he’s added a section where visitors and fans get involved via the Pictures of Walls section that features galleries containing thousands of images with photo credits and a form for users to submit their own.
