mondo labyrinth

Asking me to name my favorite artist regularly working for Mondo would be like asking me which one of my pets I’d rescue from a burning building first, but I do think Laurent Durieux is one of the most talented people working with them on a regular basis. Heck, I think he may be one the best pop culture artists working right now, period. After all, I did just buy his Bambi print from that big Disney art show.

And now, Durieux has made a poster for Labyrinth, one of the most beloved movies of the ’80s, and you can buy it tomorrow.

Ghostbusters Dinosaur

Scientists from the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto recently discovered a new dinosaur, and because of its resemblance to a certain monsters from the original Ghostbusters from 1984, it has been given a very special name.

Inspired by the terror dog who ends up inhabiting the body Sigourney Weaver’s character Dana Barrett is possessed by, scientists have named the recently discovered prehistoric beast Zuul crurivastator. They even had writer and star Dan Aykroyd come check out the skeleton of the dinosaur, and he introduces us to the creature after the jump. Read More »

Twin Peaks painting Scott C header

It’s hard to believe, but more than 25 years after David Lynch and Mark Frost’s surreal, influential TV series Twin Peaks went off the air, we’re about to head back to the town that started it all with a batch of brand new episodes on Showtime later this month. But before we do that, artist Scott C. is here to celebrate the original episodes of the show with a new art print called “In the Warmth of the Great Northern,” which features nearly every major character we’ve seen thus far gathered in the lobby of the show’s famous hotel.

Matthew Peak Halloween Print

We’re far from the Halloween season, but that isn’t stopping Bottleneck Gallery from getting in the spirit of the spooky holiday with an astounding new print celebrating John Carpenter‘s original groundbreaking slasher from 1978.

Halloween is a classic, and it deserves some truly stunning artwork to honor it. So who better to design such a poster than the son of a movie poster design legend? Matthew Peak is the son of movie poster illustrator Bob Peak, who famously created the masterful illustrated posters for the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street film series. When you see the print he’s created for Halloween, it’s clear he’s inherited his father’s artistic skills.

The Thing Infection at Outpost 31 header

John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic The Thing is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I’d jump at any opportunity to return to the film’s paranoia-fueled research station. Looks like I better start stretching and put on my jumping shoes (that’s a thing, right?), because Mondo, the company largely responsible for the rise of poster art over the past decade, is breaking into the board game business, and their first game is called The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31.

We’ve written about the game in an edition of Cardboard Cinema, but now we have a first look at the box art, the game board, and more. Refuel your flamethrowers and read on.

Star Wars Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Mash-Up

Even if you’re not a hardcore fan of The Beatles, you probably know their famous album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Personally, I think it’s one of the band’s best albums, but some genius went and made it even better by adding more than a little Star Wars to the mix.

YouTube user Palette-Swap Ninja has taken the entirety of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and rewritten the lyrics to tell the story of Star Wars: A New Hope. It’s an incredible piece of parody work that may even make Weird Al Yankovic a little jealous. Marvel as the titular track from the album is turned into “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans” and Luke Skywalker gets made fun of with lyrics saying “Luke is in the desert and whining” set the tune of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Empire Strikes Back Poster

Back in 2014, artist Matt Ferguson created a stunning poster for Guardians of the Galaxy inspired by the original poster art for the release of Star Wars in 1977 (it was one of Germain Lussier’s favorite pieces that year). Sadly, it was a privately commissioned piece of art, so fans weren’t able to get ahold of it to add to their own collection. Now you can get frustrated all over again as Matt Ferguson has created a poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 inspired by the classic poster art for The Empire Strikes Back. It might even be more stunning than the first one.
