Now Mondo has sweetened the pot considerably, announcing a poster series for the films of Anderson curated by artist Aaron Horkey.

What’s better than seeing Steven Spielberg‘s classic action adventure film Jurassic Park on the big screen once again? Not knowing about it and getting an amazing, extremely limited edition poster to go along with it. Mondo, the poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse, had their second Mondo Mystery Movie Wednesday night and after weeks of speculation and misdirection (the website hinted at a sequel that ran 134 minutes), the film ended up being Jurassic Park. But not only was mystery movie Jurassic Park with a brand new poster, that poster – by Aaron Horkey – is the first in a series Mondo is doing themed around the film.
After the jump get a good look at this first-in-a-series that will only ever be sold (at retail cost at least) to tonight’s sold out audience. Read More »

Holy beautiful. It doesn’t take much to hook me on a poster that represents Jim Jarmusch‘s Dead Man, one of my very favorite films. But to make a poster this elaborate for a film so austere takes some guts, and the design is so over the top that I can’t help loving it. I’ve seen some of artist Aaron Horkey‘s work before, but in compsition, color and the letterpress accents, this one goes far beyond the other work I’ve noticed.
The image was created to celebrate the presentation of Dead Man at the Alamo Drafthouse earlier this month and will be for sale at Dead Arts Publishing. 175 have been printed and the 7″x16.5″ prints, giclee with letterpress accents, don’t come cheap: for a rather small poster they run a whopping $145. If that isn’t too rich for you (or if you’re just a Jim Jarmusch fan who has much more disposable income than I do) keep an eye on Dead Arts today, as the posters go on sale at 2pm PST. At that price they may not go fast, but one never knows. Read More »
