As revealed exclusively here on /Film, Mondo has three Disney posters left to be released. Here’s one of them. It’s a gorgeous rendition of the 1954 live film 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea by artist Ken Taylor. The detail has to be seen to be believed. Check it out below. Read More »

Nicolas Winding Refn‘s suspenseful and cool character piece, Drive, was recently named the best film of 2011 by the Alamo Drafthouse. Add that to the fact the film was just released on Blu-ray (with a lame cover), and that Mondo is on a kick of releasing more current films (Kill List, anyone?) and it makes perfect sense that they are doing a poster for Drive. Designed by Ken Taylor, fans of the film will love this limited edition hot pink look at Ryan Gosling. Check out the full poster after the jump. Read More »
Mondo might bruise a few wallets tomorrow. The company has partnered with Sideshow Collectibles and a handful of notable poster artists to produce a set of posters for the Planet of the Apes Films. There are five prints in the series, one for each of the primary classic films. (Planet, Beneath, Escape, Conquest and Battle — sorry, Tim Burton remake fans and Rise of the Planet of the Apes lovers.)
The five prints will be sold as a set online tomorrow, Thursday January 26, with a sixth bonus print included. The price is $230; not bad at all for a Mondo poster set. Any remainders not sold as sets tomorrow will go up for sale on Friday; Sideshow Collectibles will eventually offer variants of each print on the Sideshow website. The artists are Martin Ansin, Ken Taylor, Rich Kelly, Phantom City Creative and Florian Bertmer. If you purchase the entire set of five, you will also receive the GO APE! poster painted by Jason Edmiston.

There’s something incredibly exciting about the phrase “anything is possible.” Waiting for something that could be anything is an exercise for your imagination. That infinite possibility, coupled with wild speculation and prediction, is ninety percent of the fun of Mondo’s Mystery Movies.
Mondo, as you may know, is the ever-growing poster boutique associated with the Alamo Drafthouse. In April Mondo began a project called Mystery Movies. People buy a ticket for a movie that won’t be announced until they’re in the theater. That is coupled with a limited edition poster that will only ever be available at the event. So imagine buying a ticket to one of these things and speculating what it could be. You throw out suggestions with your fellow attendees, laughing at wild ones and nodding at more likely ones. Finally, you sit down for the film and all is revealed. Does it live up to your expectations?
After two events in their hometown of Austin, Texas, the Mondo Mystery Movie hit the road for the first time ever featuring six different mystery movies over one weekend at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles. What were the films? What did the posters look like? What was the experience like? And did the event live up to our wildest expectations? Find out after the jump. Read More »
I type this from the tables right outside the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin Texas as Fantastic Fest 2011 is getting ready to kick off. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true to form Alamo event if Mondo didn’t get involved and in addition to an Olly Moss American Werewolf in London poster that will be revealed on Saturday, Mondo has a bunch of limited edition posters that will be available for the first time at the fest. They’re for Zombie, The Innkeepers and The House by the Cemetery. Plus Mondo is releasing their first record, the score to Maniac by Jay Chattaway. Check out all the images after the jump.

Suffice to say, the main topic of conversation this weekend among film fans is going to be Thor. The upcoming Marvel superhero film, directed by Kenneth Branagh, is dominating our Twitter feeds, plastered at our bus stops and everything in between. Mondo, the official poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse, is getting into the spirit too with an exclusive poster by artist Ken Taylor. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Mondo has been on a roll lately, and today they tossed images of three upcoming poster images out to three different sites. But while the company has been doing a lot of high-profile films of late (Star Wars, Hellboy, etc) these films get back closer to the origins of Mondo.
The Alamo Drafthouse is doing a two-night series with exploitation director William Lustig, and has commissioned three posters to celebrate the three films being shown. Tuesday night (that’s tomorrow!) will be Maniac and then Maniac Cop 2 (note that despite the title similarities, these are unlreated movies) and then Wednesday will be Vigilante. And Mr. Lustig will be present for all three screenings.
