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 »

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.

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.
