Pop culture art company Mondo announced this morning that they are teaming with ACME Archives to create and offer licensed prints for Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Of course you now that Mondo has the Star Wars license for a very short time where they created some of the most amazing Star Wars art outside of Drew Struzan‘s iconic illustrated posters. This included original trilogy sets by Olly Moss and Tyler Stout. This new partnership could bring us some real amazingness as Mondo works with some of the top arts today. Hit the jump to see the first print in this upcoming partnership.

It’s been a good 20 years since trolls were in, but with everything else from the ’90s making it back to the big screen, from Jurassic Park to N.W.A., DreamWorks is hoping they can make trolls happen again in the year 2016. These new trolls are tiny, colorful, CG-animated, and hip to the musics of today, like Silentó’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).” Watch these creatures get down in the first Trolls trailer after the jump.

Hollywood’s been rooting around in your old childhood toybox again, and this time they’ve dug up your forgotten troll collection. You remember trolls, right? Those pug-nosed plastic dolls with the bright big furry hair? Well, they’re getting their own movie from DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox later this year, and today we have a first look at its star-studded cast (including Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake) and the characters they’ll be voicing.

It’s been eight years since we fell in love with The Dark Knight, but we’ve hardly forgotten about it. Fans won’t miss an opportunity to praise the movie, and it’s easily one of the best superhero films ever made. And if you’re looking for some new decorations for your wall to show your love for Christopher Nolan‘s best Batman, then a couple new prints from Mondo are right up your alley. Check out both of The Dark Knight Mondo prints below! Read More »
The poster and collectibles company Mondo has just begun shipping the LP pressing of the Mad Max: Fury Road soundtrack, but if you missed out on that order there are yet more Mondo Mad Max offerings.
The company revealed three posters, two by portrait artist Mike Mitchell and one by Ken Taylor, featuring the characters from George Miller‘s action blast. Even better, these are timed releases rather than strictly limited-edition prints, meaning that they’ll be printed based on the number of orders collected during a window of time — no lightning-quick web shop reflexes needed for these!
Check out all the Fury Road Mondo images below. Read More »

Ask a film fan and they’ll say Fantastic Fest is the best film festival in the world. An experience so unique and exciting, there’s almost no way it could be improved.
That is, until organizers added MondoCon.
MondoCon is a sister convention put on by the team known for their highly collectible and sought-after posters. The aim was to do a convention that celebrated all things Mondo (art, posters, toys, movies, comics) but do everything differently from other conventions. To create an experience that would be really fun for fans and non-fans alike. After attending for two days, I can safely say they succeeded — but not in the ways one may think.
So many criticize Mondo for the culture they’ve helped create with their low-supply, high-demand posters. There are valid arguments on both sides, but with MondoCon the team did their best to move away from that. It wasn’t a convention that was only about buying posters. (Though you could, of course, buy lots of posters.) MondoCon was more about community and communication. It was a venue for fans to interact with their favorite artists and other fans, and revel in the controlled geekiness.
However, at the start of MondoCon no one knew that. In fact, we knew very little at all. Below, read our full MondoCon recap. Read More »
We would’ve loved to see everything Mondo had in store for San Diego Comic-Con 2014 last week when it was still available, but that’s not how Mondo works. Besides that one piece we showed, almost none of what the company had planned was revealed until they wanted it to be. That meant fans stood in line at the convention for hours, totally unaware what they were waiting in line for. That’s the power of Mondo but now that it’s all over, the world can finally see everything that was sold (and mostly sold out) at Comic Con.
This year, Mondo focused most of their releases on this week’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Each member of the team got their own individual poster, culminating in the reveal of a full poster by Tyler Stout (his first such release in many months). Luckily, that’ll surely be on sale online later this week and some of the below posters could make it online too. After the jump, see them all, including Ghost in the Shell, Batman 66, The Last of Us and more. Read More »
The next few days are going to be filled with more “Cool Stuff” posts than usual because of the awesome items hitting the floor at San Diego Comic-Con. You’ve probably already seen this Jurassic World poster, Marvel’s cool hoodies and more, but we’ve yet to hear much from Mondo. That’s going to change. At the convention they’re finally revealing something that has been teased for a few months. The company is getting into toys.
Starting later this year, Mondo will begin releasing officially licensed toys based on popular properties. They’re kicking it off with an official license for The Iron Giant (a property that has been something that has been illusive to collectors for years) as well as some new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stuff as well as Alfred Hitchcock.
