Sadly, Laika’s Kubo and the Two Strings came in fourth place at the box office this past weekend. It’s the Portland-based company’s lowest-grossing opening weekend to date, which is a shame. The beautiful, elegant and often moving stop-motion / CG hybrid may not have immediately caught on with moviegoers, but the film already has its fans, and some of those fans may want to get their hands on the Kubo and the Two Strings soundtrack on Vinyl. Thanks to Mondotees, they’ll soon be able to do so.
Below, learn more about the Kubo and the Two Strings vinyl release.

If you’re a record collector and you love the music of Pixar Animation films, then you may have already realized the disappointing fact that Michael Giacchino‘s score for Inside Out is not available on vinyl. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like there’s a release of the full score on vinyl in the future, but the folks at Mondo have a collectible 7″ record series that will be available for purchase exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con with album artwork by Phantom City Creative.
However, if you’re unable to be at Comic-Con next week, there will be a chance to get your hands on prints of the album artwork inspired by some real life album covers such as Isaac Hayes’ Joy, Hole’s Live Through This, Joni Mitchell’s Blue, and the Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream. Get the details on the Inside Out vinyl records and album artwork after the jump. Read More »
Info•Rama was founded in 2014 by artists Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen, who set out to create beautiful infographics that were full of meticulously researched information while also doubling as gorgeous pieces of art. Since both Tong and Whalen regularly collaborate with Mondo, the purveyors of the internet’s favorite pop culture posters and merchandise, a team-up was inevitable. Now, Info•Rama is the subject of the latest Mondo Gallery show in Austin, Texas, with Tong, Whalen, and Matt Taylor contributing pieces that break down some of your favorite movies, television shows, and comic book characters while also looking nothing short of gorgeous.
And you can check out every print from the show below.

Mondo, the ever-popular source of those lovely posters and other pieces of pop culture memorabilia that sell out so fast, is no stranger to King Kong. Over the years, they have released a few posters commemorating this 1933 masterpiece and it’s a testament to the film’s legacy that they can announce two more without feeling like they’re repeating themselves. These new prints, both the work of artist Jonathan Buron, depict both halves of the film, with one showcasing Kong in his natural habitat the other showing him off on the New York City skyline.

Galaxy Quest has become quite the popular movie since its release. It wasn’t a runaway hit at the box office back in 1999, but it still pulled in just over $90 worldwide on a budget of just $45 million, according to Box Office Mojo. If that happened today, there would likely be a sequel fast-tracked into development. Sadly, it seems any chances of seeing Galaxy Quest 2 went away when Alan Rickman passed away earlier this year.
Instead of being sad that we’ll never see the crew from the NSEA Protector back on the big screen again, we can take the time to appreciate that the film still has some loyal fans. Thankfully, one of those fans is a talented artist named Andrew Kolb, and he’s just teamed up with Mondo to release a pair of fantastic new prints that imagine a world where Galaxy Quest action figures were available on shelves. Check out the Galaxy Quest prints after the jump. Read More »
For the first time, Howard Shore‘s scores for three of David Cronenberg‘s finest pictures — Crash, Dead Ringers, and Naked Lunch — will be released on vinyl, courtesy of Mondotees. As expected, they’re giving these soundtracks the grand treatment, with three gorgeous custom made covers that evoke the unnerving tone of Cronenberg’s trio of films.

There are plenty of action figures for the heroes of movies out there, but filmmakers don’t get the merchandise they deserve. Mondo is hoping to change that by giving legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock his own sixth scale collectible figure.
The Alfred Hitchcock figure was first announced back in 2014 when Mondo revealed they were venturing into the collectible toy market. Now the figure is finally available for purchase, and if you need some convincing that it’s worth the price tag, there are some awesome shots of the collectible after the jump.
However, if you’re not in the market to drop some cash on an expensive filmmaker toy, maybe you’d rather get some more collectible artwork for your walls, this time for some of Alfred Hitchcock’s movies. Check out Mondo’s new Alfred Hitchcock offerings after the jump. Read More »
Shane Black‘s newest film, The Nice Guys, opens in theaters this weekend. Black’s third directorial effort is opening up against Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Angry Birds, a sequel and an animated feature based on a video game. The Nice Guys is one of the few original studio films coming out this summer, but that’s not the only reason to go out and support Black’s picture. It has everything you want from the writer and director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang: two charismatic leading men, genuine heart, some unexpected turns, and plenty of jokes that pay off wonderfully. The Nice Guys is simply top-notch R-rated entertainment. Make sure to see it this weekend, and then, if you’re a fan of the film, maybe you’ll still even have time to purchase The Nice Guys Mondo poster.
Check out prints for Shane Black’s buddy comedy, The Twilight Zone, and Pinocchio below.
