It’s no secret that we here at /Film are big fans of Mondo and their very cool output of posters and collectibles. So we’re pleased to exclusively reveal six prints that the Austin-based company is bringing to San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Fans of Star Wars, Attack on Titan, Samurai Jack, Labyrinth, Beauty and the Beast, and 2001: A Space Odyssey who will be attending this year’s con will want to bring some extra cash (and probably a poster tube). Everyone else can still admire these beauties from afar.

Asking me to name my favorite artist regularly working for Mondo would be like asking me which one of my pets I’d rescue from a burning building first, but I do think Laurent Durieux is one of the most talented people working with them on a regular basis. Heck, I think he may be one the best pop culture artists working right now, period. After all, I did just buy his Bambi print from that big Disney art show.

And now, Durieux has made a poster for Labyrinth, one of the most beloved movies of the ’80s, and you can buy it tomorrow.

Johnny Depp in Mortdecai

Johnny Depp‘s career has been in a bit of rut over the past couple of years. The actor’s now ex-wife Amber Heard recently came forward with abuse allegations, which followed a string of box-office and critical disappointments. Some were hopeful Black Mass would be a comeback of sorts for Depp, a return to the real world for an actor who has a history of playing characters like, let’s say, Mortdecai and The Mad Hatter. Black Mass was another disappointment starring the actor, but he’s lined up another biopic to headline. In Labyrinth, Depp will play the L.A. Detective who investigated the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.

Below, learn more about the new Johnny Depp project.

Labyrinth Board Game

There just aren’t enough new board games commemorating hits movies from the 1980s. In an effort to help rectify that situation, a company called River Horse has partnered up with The Jim Henson Company to create a Labyrinth board game, based on the 1986 fantasy film starring the late David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly.

The Labyrinth board game is scheduled to get released this summer and features some pretty impressive sculpts for the five collectible game pieces that players will use to navigate the board. Get more details on the Labyrinth board game after the jump. Read More »

Labyrinth Honest Trailer

We were all crushed by the death of David Bowie. Not only was the man a rock god, but he also had a strong influence in the genres of sci-fi and fantasy. And in honor of the late Starman, the folks at Honest Trailers have decided to take on Labyrinth. But before you go thinking that a video series traditionally used to mock movies is a pretty crappy way to honor a recently passed icon, just watch the Labyrinth Honest Trailer and see how it’s all about praising the fact that David Bowie singlehandedly makes this movie an ’80s gem.

Some of the practical effects are so good that you probably believe they were created inside the computer. After the jump, you can read an excerpt from my conversation with Neal Scanlan — creature & droid effects creative supervisor, creature shop concept designer, creature shop head — and SFX supervisor Chris Corbould. (The full interview will be posted in February). In the excerpt, Scanlan and Corbould reveal some of the invisible practical effects of The Force Awakens and more.
