The FIFA World Cup isn’t without its charms, but any Harry Potter fan worth his weight in Galleons knows that Muggle soccer has nothing on Quidditch. Soon, the rest of the world may come to realize that as well, thanks to a new documentary.
Directed by Farzad Sangari, Mudbloods follows the UCLA Quidditch team on their journey to the Fifth Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City. I realize that sentence may sound completely absurd if you’re not familiar with the Harry Potter fandom, but trust me, it’s a real thing. Check out the first poster and still, and get all the details on the movie, after the jump.

We’ve loved the direction that Drafthouse Films has taken in bringing the film Borgman to audiences. The trailer was terrific, and the key poster art is also great. The poster gets right to some of the important ideas in the film in a way that is enticing and mysterious without being blatantly overt. A conversation with Drafthouse led to the idea of doing a breakdown of the design process for that key art, which was created by artist Brandon Schaefer.
Initially we were going to set up an interview with Schaefer. Before that happened, however, he wrote up a description of his own design process. And, frankly, it is a lot better than any interview might have been. So what follows is essentially a guest post by Schaefer, in which he gives a full account of the process of creating the Borgman poster art. Read More »
Mondo loves to do posters for niche, interesting movies as well as some of the biggest movies of all time. Thursday’s releases fall in that second category.

Paul Verhoven’s 1987 classic has seen all kinds of different posters but these latest two, on sale Thursday, are definitely two of the coolest. Below, check out all the information on them.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
One of the year’s most fascinating documentaries, The Battered Bastards of Baseball, is coming exclusively to Netflix on July 11. Directed by Chapman Way and Maclain Way, it tells the story of the Portland Mavericks, an independent minor league baseball team created by Kurt Russell‘s father, Bing Russell. That’s Kurt above, by the way; he was on the team.
The Mavericks were hugely influential and extremely entertaining, as is the documentary. (We reviewed the film at Sundance; read that at this link.) Justin Lin is attached to produce a live action remake, directed by Todd Field.
Before that happens, though, you can see the full film on Netflix next month. Below, see the poster for the film. Read More »
