If you’re a fan of the director and you’re in Austin, then this must be a good week for you, because, in addition to the debut of the filmmaker’s latest work, Mondo is currently celebrating his filmography with a show called “No Longer/Not Yet.”

Not only are Alamo Drafthouse theaters known for being spectacular places to see all sorts of great films from today and years past, but they also allow you to toss back a cold one while watching them. And when Richard Linklater‘s latest film, Everybody Wants Some, debuts at SXSW next week, it will be followed in a few weeks by the movie’s own official beer fro Austin Beerworks.
If there’s one movie that deserves to have its own beer, it’s the spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, which brings us a story about college life in 1980. But if you’re not of age to drink, or you just hate beer, there’s also a cool new Mondo poster for the movie that has just been unveiled in conjunction with the forthcoming Richard Linklater gallery show.
Find out where and when you can get the Everybody Wants Some beer and see the Mondo poster for the movie below. Read More »

Director Richard Linklater is one of Austin, Texas’ favorite sons, so it was not surprising in the slightest when his newest movie, Everybody Wants Some, was selected to open this year’s SXSW Film Festival. Linklater’s work has screened at the fest on several occasions and Linklater himself has put in more than a few memorable appearances. He interviewed fellow Texan Wes Anderson after a screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel a few years ago and it was magnificent.
And that brings us to the news of the moment: Mondo, the Austin-based purveyor of terrific film and pop culture-related posters that sell out way too fast, is dedicating its next gallery show to Linklater and his work.

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.

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 »
