Tyler Stout is one of the most popular poster artists out there today but, in 2014, he was relatively quiet. Kind of like space. Which leads us to his first poster of 2015, Ridley Scott‘s Alien.
The poster was revealed Wednesday night at a special screening of Alien at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas and the remaining posters will go on sale Friday January 30 at a random time. See the full images of the Tyler Stout Alien poster below. Read More »

Screenprinted movie posters continued to explode in 2014. I drool over so many posters every year, it’s very difficult to pick favorites. With movies, at least you know what you like and you don’t like. Why something works and why something doesn’t. Physical art is more subjective. Some art just hits people one way and others another. Such it is with pop culture posters. Maybe I love one subject more than another and that makes the art seem better. Maybe the art is absolutely incredible but, if I don’t connect with the subject, it’s harder to appreciate. Long story short, ranking them in any definitive ways seems futile.
That said, we figured it would be fun to at least call out a few of coolest screenprinted movie posters of 2014. Fifteen personal favorites that stand out, for one reason or another, to me. Posters are are beautiful, unique and make me remember their subject in a new, vivid way. Check out my favorite screenprinted movie posters of 2014 after the jump. Read More »
Brad Bird, the director of the underrated 1999 animated film The Iron Giant, is playing with Mondo’s latest creation. “I want one,” he says. So do we.
Thursday, the company is releasing their second toy ever, a 16 inch high end reproduction of the iconic robot. To raise awareness for the release, Mondo put out a video of Bird playing with the toy and being amazed by the attention to detail. It’s super cute and awesome. Check out the Brad Bird Iron Giant below. Read More »
Oh I’m sorry, did I break your concentration? Mondo is finally releasing a poster for Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction and I guarantee you can buy one.
On Black Friday, Mondo will release Pulp Fiction by Laurent Durieux as a timed edition. That means they’ll make as many as they sell. You have from Friday November 28 through Monday December 1 to purchase the poster, with 10% of the proceeds from the sale going to the Sally Menke Fellowship.
There will also be a variant edition, on sale at a later time, which will be much more limited; 100% of the proceeds from that edition will go to the Foundation. Those prints will all be signed by Tarantino himself. See both Mondo Pulp Fiction posters below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The ugly sweater is an art form, a fashion niché now reserved for Eighties sitcoms and kitschy holiday parties. Usually, you find them at Goodwill or other similar stores and the busier or uglier it is, the better. But on rare occasions, you can find them where they’re actually cool. Or at least ironic and Mondo just made two such sweaters. They’ve created ugly knit sweaters for two movies set in the snow: The Coen Brothers’ Fargo and Joe Dante’s Gremlins. Check out the Gremlins and Fargo sweaters below. Read More »
Have you ever heard of this character Batman? I hear he’s pretty popular. They’ve made a few movies about him, a few TV shows, and apparently a few comic books. 2014 is the 75th anniversary of this incredibly obscure, niche character, which apparently is why the team at Mondo is doing a full gallery show of original art and posters based on him and his gallery of characters.
75 Years of Batman opens Friday October 24 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and the first batch of art has been revealed. There are some heavy hitters here: Kevin Tong, Tom Whalen, Craig Drake, Phantom City Creative, Alex Pardee, Scott C., Jason Edmiston and this is just the first wave. Check out the Mondo Batman posters below. Read More »
Little known fact: Mondo rejects just as many, if not more, posters than they actually release. Some are posters that didn’t get approved by a star or studio. Others are different versions of a poster that actually was released. And sometimes Mondo and a company can’t settle on a design and it never sees the light of day.
At MondoCon this past weekend, Justin Ishmael, Rob Jones and Mitch Putnam, the creative team behind Mondo, presented a panel called Mondo Talk about this very subject. However, what started as a way for fans to see the behind the scenes creation of a poster turned into, as Ishmael put it, “The depressing, what you could have had panel.”
They revealed a non-stop cavalcade of posters, concepts, licenses and more they tried to realize, but which failed for one reason for another. We’re talking Tyler Stout‘s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, Krzysztof Domaradzki‘s officially licensed The Godfather, Spring Breakers, and various different iterations of Man of Steel. Below, check out a bunch of posters Mondo posters that never happened. Read More »
The films of Edgar Wright are known for their eclectic musical choices, but it’s the pop song choices that are typically revered. The scores are highly underrated, to the extent the score for Wright’s first film, Shaun of the Dead, has never been available anywhere in any format.
That changes this weekend at MondoCon in Austin, TX. Mondo will release the Shaun of the Dead score by Daniel Mudford & Pete Woodhead on vinyl as part of a carnival style, record-tossing booth. There are two editions, too, both with cover art by Jock.
But that’s not all. Previously announced, Mondo will release LPs of Nathan Johnson‘s score to Rian Johnson‘s Looper and Alex North‘s abandoned score for 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both have art by Jay Shaw.
Below, check out looks of all the LPs and read more information about them. Read More »
