Cool Stuff: Tyler Stout’s ‘Akira’ Poster

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 »

It started with Guillermo Del Toro, moved onto Duncan Jones, Zach Snyder and now the latest director to be chosen for Mondo’s Director Series is Wes Craven. The man responsible for creating two of the most enduring horror franchises of all time, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, has the fourth film in the latter series hitting theaters on Friday and, to celebrate, artist Alex Pardee has immortalized Craven’s two most influential films. Later artists will create posters for other Craven films Swamp Thing, The Last House of the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. (What? No My Soul To Take poster?)

After the jump, check out the full images of each poster, read a quote from Craven and find out when you’ll be able to pick these up. Read More »

Sunday March 27th was Quentin Tarantino‘s birthday and not only was he able to finally screen his combined opus, Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, at his theater in Los Angeles, the New Beverly, popular artist Tyler Stout made a special poster to commemorate the occasion. Mondo Tees quickly sold out at the theater but they’ll sell the majority of the 600 print run online later this week.

South by Southwest begins next week in Austin, Texas and besides incredible music and awesome films, the festival also has great art. Not only do they host a Flatstock, which is basically screenprint Comic Con, it’s in Mondo‘s hometown, so they get in on the festivities. They’ve commissioned a whole bunch of posters exclusively for SXSW screenings and today we’re got the first batch (with more coming next week). There’s one for the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost sci-fi comedy Paul, by Tom Whalen, and a pair based on the mind-bending work of Duncan JonesSource Code and Moon, by fan favorite Olly Moss. The latter two also qualify as the next entry in Mondo’s Director’s Series, which previously featured Guillermo del Toro. Check out all of the posters, read a quote from Jones and more about after the break. Read More »

Holy crap, Dan McCarthy is amazing. The artist who did some of the best Star Wars and Lost posters to date now tackles yet another huge property, Star Trek.

Check out the full image from McCarthy’s amazing poster, which goes on sale Wednesday at a random time and will sell out instantly, after the jump. Read More »

With Star Wars, Star Trek and Disney, Mondo has some awesome licenses under their belt. And while Star Wars is done and Star Trek is ongoing, the Disney license has, so far, only had one entry: an awesome set of Tron posters. That came along with the announcement that Mondo would be doing several Disney posters in tandem with Sideshow Collectibles and, finally, a second poster has been released: Steamboat Willy by Tom Whalen. It goes on sale Friday. Check out the full image and all the particulars after the jump. Read More »

It’s no mystery that we at /Film are huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans. (I enter exhibits one, two and three into evidence if you need convincing.) So it makes sense that Mondo chose us to exclusively debut a pair of posters for the 1990 live action film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Jeff Proctor. The posters were created because the Alamo Drafthouse regularly hosts insane all-you-can-eat pizza party/screenings of the film. A regular and variant of the Proctor print, along with an awesome poster of Santa Sangre by Florian Bertmer will go on sale Thursday, January 20, at a random time. See full photos and get all the specs after the jump. Read More »

Continuing their Universal Monsters series that began last year with Bride of Frankenstein and The Wolf Man, Mondo‘s 2011 poster slate begins with the most famous monster of them all: Dracula. Timed with the 80 (!) year anniversary of Tod Browning‘s 1931 film starring Bela Lugosi, Mondo has commissioned Vania Zouravliov and Aaron Horkey to collaborate on two beautiful posters. Both editions go on sale at a random time Wednesday January 12 by following @MondoNews. Check out the full images and specs after the jump. Read More »
