Jason Liwag-Dick Tracy

Many times, the international version of a movie poster is much better than the domestic one. International marketing teams seem more willing to take visual risks, and therefore, we’re given more interesting and evocative artwork.

So what if your favorite limited, pop culture art was given a foreign spin? That’s the general idea behind Native Tongue, a three person show that opens November 9 at the Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach, CA. Jay Shaw, Jason Liwag and Rico Cabina have each made new posters that look like they’re from overseas for some of their favorite films. Shaw did Polish-inspired works, Cabina simulated Mexican designs, and Liwag did Japanese. The result is a simultaneously familiar and unfamiliar collection of movie posters for films like Dick Tracy, Eyes Wide Shut, Big Trouble In Little China, and The Rocketeer.

What you’ve got to love about Mondo is that while they often do posters for big Hollywood blockbusters like Cowboys & Aliens or Star Wars, they’ve built their reputation on posters for really small, cult, genre movies. Some of my personal favorites are posters for The Monster Squad, The Evil Dead and on Thursday they’re releasing two more. After the jump, check out the full posters for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Read More »
