Dennis Hopper is one the most fascinating figures in American cinema, a vital artist who rose so fast and fell so hard that his story has taken on a tragic aura. What would have become of the director Easy Rider if his second film wasn’t a failure? Would he still be in the same conversation as the likes of Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Brian De Palma, and the rest of their peers? These days, the late Hopper is remembered more as a character actor than as a filmmaker, with the tales of his off-set antics overshadowing his contributions to American New Wave of the ‘60s and ‘70s.
We’re pleased to premiere Mondo’s new poster for Lawrence Schiller and L.M. Kit Carson’s The American Dreamer, a cinéma vérité documentary tracking Hopper as he basks in the glow of Easy Rider and sets out to make The Last Movie, a film that would derail his career for years. The poster (which signifies a serious departure from Mondo’s usual style) celebrates the restoration and theatrical re-release of this widely unseen film, which will play in limited release in select cities and see a digital release later this month.

In addition to fantastic artwork, Mondo has also been churning out some incredible, exclusive vinyl albums for some of your favorite film scores and soundtracks. And kicking off 2016 with a bang is a vinyl re-release of the late James Horner’s score for Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. Making this vinyl even sweeter is some stellar cover art created by Matt Taylor, but the real draw is that this vinyl has the extended score on two LPs. Read More »

One of the best unconventional Christmas movies to rewatch around this time of the year is undoubtedly Joe Dante‘s cult horror comedy Gremlins. With outstanding creature effects, the right blend of dark humor and horror, and that adorable Gizmo, it’s just a nice change of pace from the usual holiday fare.
And if you’re a big fan of the Steven Spielberg presented film, then you might want to pay close attention to Mondo tomorrow for their new Gremlins print by Jessica Seamans, commemorating the wild movie theater experience the gremlins have while watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Read More »

You might remember back in September when fall was just beginning and the temperature was just beginning to drop, Mondo released a batch of slasher sweaters inspired by the likes of Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees and Michael Myers. And now they’re getting in the Christmas spirit as well.
Mondo has just unveiled a new batch of Christmas appropriate Gremlins gear, including cardigan and scarf to go with the previously released sweater. And even though it doesn’t fit with the holiday season, they’ve also released an Iron Giant sweater that looks pretty cozy. Read More »

Once upon a time, Mondo sold T-shirts in a tiny shop in the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater in Austin, Texas. Now, they’re one of the most popular purveyors of high-end pop culture art on the internet, with their posters and collectibles literally selling out within seconds of going on sale. The company had grown big enough to host its own convention, so lo and behold, MondoCon made its debut in 2014. This year, the con only grew bigger, expanding its size and its offerings. Simply looking in its general direction is enough to drain your wallet.
For a look at every MondoCon 2015 poster and piece of art, as well as thoughts on the con itself, keep on reading!
