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.

At first glance, Martin Ansin is an unlikely choice to make Mondo posters for TRON. His work, such as the recent poster for Dracula, a sought after Star Trek Space Seed piece or his wholey unique take on Star Wars, are all extremely realistic and defined, two traits that certainly don’t describe Disney’s sci-fi franchise. Then you look about the wide-ranging scope of Ansin’s subjects and it’s obvious that his clean style can breath life into just about anything. It’s part of the reason why his art, much like Olly Moss and Tyler Stout before him, is becoming more and more sought after on a daily basis.
/Film is proud to exclusively debut the latest collaboration between Disney, Mondo and Sideshow Collectibles: a limited edition posters set (yes, it’s a paired set) of posters for TRON and TRON:Legacy by Martin Ansin. Check them both out and find out when you can buy them after the jump.

2011 has been something of a banner year for Mondo. It brought the first work from legendary artists Drew Struzan and Shepard Fairey, the advent and expansion of the Mondo Mystery Movie, inclusion into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, licenses for DC Comics, Studio Ghibli, Pixar, Jurassic Park and much more. Now, they’ve decided to end this incredible year the same way it began – with Dracula.
Martin Ansin continues the Universal Monsters series Friday with his interpretation of the 1931 film Dracula, a film which was previously designed by Vania Zouravliov and Aaron Horkey way back in January but didn’t have the vampire himself on the poster. But that’s not all. In addition to a variant, there’s an even more limited piece that’s done on wood, shaped like a coffin. It’s insane. Oh, and a new Tom Whalen Disney piece called Two-Gun Mickey will also be released for counter programming. Check them all out after the jump. Read More »

Check out the full posters and specs after the jump. Read More »
Mondo has just released the final two posters in their Guillermo Del Toro Director’s Series and, big surprise, they’re gorgeous. Artists Vania Zouravliov and Aaron Horkey have teamed up to make a poster for Del Toro’s 2001 film The Devil’s Backbone, and Martin Ansin has created a poster for Del Toro’s directorial debut, Cronos. The Devil’s Backbone, available in three different versions, goes on sale Friday and Cronos will be sometime later. Check out the full images of all of them after the break. Read More »
You’ve probably coveted many of artist Martin Ansin’s previous prints. His two Scott Pilgrim posters kick ass, his Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus is gorgeous and his Star Trek poster is one of the most sought after in recent memory. Now, Ansin is the latest artist to take a crack at the Star Wars poster series presented by Mondo Tees. His print, called A Wretched Hive, dramatizes one of the most classic moments in all of Star Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s severing of an arm in the Mos Eisley Cantina. There are so many classic characters in this print that it almost amounts to a really easy Star Wars version of Where’s Waldo. It even features the series’ first non-Carbonite appearance of Han Solo.

A movie poster exhibit recently opened in Montreal, Canada and it comes complete with three beautiful new prints. The exhibit is called “J’ai tué le photographe” (which translates to “I killed the photographer”) and it runs through October 30 at the Cinema du Parc. The three prints made for the show are Oldboy by Rhys Cooper, Full Metal Jacket by Tim Doyle and El Topo by Martin Ansin. Cooper, Doyle and Ansin have each been featured numerous times on /Film and are just a few of the artists working to prove that specially designed movie posters are back in a big way. Hit the jump to see the posters, get info on how to buy them and read more about the exhibit. Read More »
The Alamo Drafthouse and Mondo Tees have announced a series of Star Trek-inspired posters. The first one will be released on the Mondotees website today (Wednesday) sometime around mid-day (so keep checking back). Martin Ansin‘s “Space Seed” poster profiles one of the most infamous characters in Star Trek history — KHAN!!!
Instead of doing WRATH OF KHAN right off, we decided to do a poster for his first appearance, SPACE SEED. WRATH OF KHAN will show up eventually, but we had to plant some roots. This will be an ongoing series in partnership with CBS. The most exciting thing about this partnership is that they have given us the keys to the kingdom. We can do LITERALLY ANY Trek property. That means the original series, the movies, TNG, the J. J. Abrams version and even the cartoon if we wanted to. Our goal is to do one a month and leave everyone guessing at what’s coming next. Next months entry will drive people NUTS and if everything goes right, we’ll be selling a variant at San Diego Comic Con.
The Space Seed poster will be available in a regular edition of 300 and a variant edition on wood of only 35. Check out the full print, after the jump.
