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 »

If you know anything about artist Shepard Fairey or John Carpenter‘s film They Live, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a better marriage of artist and material. For the first time ever, the Alamo Drafthouse and their art boutique Mondo were able to get Fairey to create a poster and, of course, they chose They Live, which is screening Thursday night in Austin. Fairey predictably knocked it out of the park with an image that encompasses both his dogma and the movie’s.
After the jump check out the full image, find out when you can buy it and read about Fairey’s connection with the film.

Featuring the talents of Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Cheech Marin, Danny Trejo and many more, you wouldn’t be breaking any ground in saying that From Dusk Till Dawn is beloved. Much like The Evil Dead films before it, From Dusk Till Dawn blends humor, horror and leading man machismo in an almost perfect balance, delivering a frantic, fun ride through a vampire infested strip club ending on a memorable teaser image.
Artist Rhys Cooper has now created another memorable image based on From Dusk Till Dawn and this one you can own. Inside The Rock Poster Frame exclusively premiered Cooper’s image which will be released by Tommy Good next week in both a regular and 100% unique bloodsoaked variant. Check out images of both, as well as Mondo‘s Werewolves on Wheels by Phantom City Creative and Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives by Chris Ware (yes, the one we posted about months ago) after the jump.

If you read our exclusive interview with Olly Moss, you know that even the artists are aware how difficult it is to acquire a Mondo print these days. It’s especially difficult when there are only 185 of the things but that’s the print run of Kevin Tong‘s poster for Kim Ji-Woon‘s bloody revenge film I Saw The Devil, which is now out on Blu-ray and DVD. We’ve been buzzing about the film for months but, unfortunately, it didn’t fair too well at the box office. Hence the small print run. Still, once you see the movie, you are going to want this poster. Check out the full image, courtesy of JoBlo, after the break. Read More »
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 »
When Mondo announced that they’d be doing Director’s Series posters, beginning with Guillermo del Toro, the one title on the list that really stood out was Pan’s Labyrinth. What would a limited edition poster for this classic film look like? Finally, we have the answer. /Film is proud to exclusively present your first official look at Aaron Horkey‘s Pan’s Labyrinth poster, presented as part of Mondo’s Director’s Series and the Alamo Drafthouse’s Big Screen Classics series. The print made its debut at screening of Pan’s Tuesday night in Austin and all copies allocated for that show completely sold out. And though the film screens again tonight, all remaining posters will go on sale Friday April 22. Check out the huge images of both the 37.5″X 15″ regular and variant prints after the break.

It’s almost as if with each and every release, Mondo just keeps upping the bar. In the last few weeks alone we’ve seen a beautiful Kill Bill poster, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and two very cool Wes Craven posters. Thursday night in Austin, Texas, though, they started something new. Justin Ishamel, who runs Mondo, and Tim League, who runs the Alamo Drafthouse, began the Mondo Mystery Movie Series – a screening series that will be a total and utter mystery until the curtain goes up and they’ll have an extremely limited edition poster to go along with it.
The Mondo Mystery Movie was Thursday and it ended up being Akira, which was chosen by popular poster artist Tyler Stout. Stout himself flew into Austin for the screening and brought along a brand new, very limited edition Akira poster. There were only 180, not even enough for every single person who came to the movie so, unless you want to spend a lot of money, these aren’t going to be available. Hitfix got the exclusive reveal of the poster and while you can see a taste above, wait until you see the whole thing. Read More »
