Drafthouse Films’ commitment to unique, challenging cinema continues this year with Pieta, from controversial South Korean auteur Kim Ki-duk. Lee Jung-jin stars as a merciless loan shark whose world is upended by the unexpected appearance of a woman (Cho Min-soo) who claims to be his long-lost mother.
The film earned some high praise on the festival circuit last year, and in advance of its VOD release next week a new trailer has hit the web. And this being a Drafthouse title, there’s also a gorgeous new Mondo poster to go with it. Check both of them out after the jump. Read More »

Any time artist Tyler Stout releases a print, it’s an event. When he has his own gallery show, it’s a happening. Friday night in Austin for SXSW, the artist behind such memorable Mondo posters as Akira, the Star Wars trilogy and Kill Bill was on hand for a two-man show with Australian artist Ken Taylor. Stout premiered brand new posters for Drive, Attack the Block and Un Prophete and more, which you can exclusively see below.
We also got to talk to the artist about the new work, what it’s like to exhibit at the gallery, the pressure of popularity and having hundreds of fans camp out on a sidewalk just for a shot to buy one of his posters. Check it all out below. Read More »

This is a huge time for Mondo. The company kicked off SXSW last week with their massive Game of Thrones show. Later this week is the even bigger Stout/Taylor show. (Check back Friday for more on that.) And today they’ve revealed a truly historic entry into their archive.
Martin Ansin has done a poster for Martin Scorsese‘s Taxi Driver, tied to a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, TX next week. Not only did Robert De Niro allow Mondo to use his likeness, Scorsese himself approved the poster. Check it out in full, below. Read More »
From the instant the film was released, the soundtrack to Drive became a cult phenomenon. The mix of catchy pop-rock and the pulse-pounding score by Cliff Martinez gave Nicolas Winding-Refn‘s intense thriller an unmistakably cool feeling. That’s the kind of feeling Mondo loves, and almost exactly one year ago, they announced they’d be releasing the soundtrack on limited edition vinyl with artwork by Tyler Stout. Finally, that artwork can be revealed.
Below, check out the full artwork for the vinyl and poster, and find out when you can get both. Read More »
That sound you just heard was the world of pop culture art exploding. On March 15 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas, legendary poster artists Ken Taylor and Tyler Stout are teaming up for an exhibit of new work. It’s Taylor’s second U.S. show and Stout’s first Mondo show, a major milestone as he’s been blowing poster fans’ minds since 2005. They’re two of the most talented, popular, influential and highly collectible artists on the scene today. That’s the good news.
The bad news is, we can’t show you any art. It’s a secret. All we know is it’ll run from March 15-April 6 and include “new work” from both popular artists.
Either way, we’ve got the show card below as well as some of their best art from the past to give you an idea of what might be in store for fans. And also, read about the Game of Thrones exhibit that’ll act as an appetizer to the Stout/Taylor show, both tied to South by Southwest 2013. Read More »
