New York Comic-Con has come and gone, bringing with it big movie news, TV news and lots and lots of collectibles. And while some booths chose to reveal their collectibles in advance, one that didn’t was the crew at Mondo. They preferred to keep their first trip to New York a well-kept secret until the convention opened on Thursday. Once that happened though, fans realized it was worth the wait as the famous poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse had brought posters from the Lord of the Rings, The Iron Giant, Shaun of the Dead, Kill Bill, Friday the 13th and more. That’s the good news. The better news is that not everything sold out so they’ll likely be online soon.

Really, there’s not a better pairing of artist and movie than Jock and The Raid. Jock, the comic book artist who helped define Judge Dredd and create The Losers, is well-known for his hyper-realisitc, action-packed style. Then there’s The Raid: Redemption, a critically acclaimed Indonesian action film by Gareth Evans (on Blu-ray Tuesday) that’s also hyper-realistic and action-packed. So it makes perfect sense that Mondo would commission Jock, who recently made a Dark Knight Rises poster for them, to tackle The Raid: Redemption. The result is a, literal, towering achievement. Check it out below. Read More »

When the West Memphis Three (Jason Baldwin, Jesse Misskelley Jr., and Damien Echols) were freed last year, we learned that Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh had been paying for investigations into the case for which the three were convicted. The murders for which the WM3 went to prison are widely believed to have been committed by other parties, and Jackson and Walsh bankrolled DNA tests and other efforts to find the real perpetrators.
Around the same time, in 2008, they started producing a documentary called West of Memphis, directed by Amy Berg, about their investigation and its findings. That film was announced in December, and will premiere soon at Sundance. Jackson has now shared the first poster for the film, designed by the artist Jock. Read More »
