Last week, images of this set leaked and we asked the question ”Is This The ‘Dark Knight’ Trilogy Ultimate Collectors Edition Blu-ray Box Set?” The answer turns out to be…kind of. The official set, seen above, has now been revealed and it shares many features with last week’s images along with a few treats all its own. (Which suggests either those images were an international or preliminary version of the set). The real set is scheduled for release September 24 with an MSRP of $99.97.
Below, check the image out in high res and read the full details on the six disc collector’s edition Blu-ray which includes brand new special features and artwork from Mondo. (Unfortunately, no Christopher Nolan director commentaries, however.) Read More »

The current craze of limited edition movie posters has its roots in the long-standing tradition of gig posters. Those posters advertised and commemorated concerts (and still do) with some editions becoming increasingly collectible. That inspired Mondo to do the same thing for film screenings. The outfit’s latest poster is a return to those roots, as it is a piece by artist Jay Shaw based on the rockumentary A Band Called Death.
Conceived in the mold of gig posters and mix tapes, Shaw’s poster is a great representation of the film, which documents one of the most surprising stories in punk rock history. It’s currently playing on demand but hits theaters Friday June 28 and Mondo will release Shaw’s poster on June 27. We’re proud to exclusively debut the poster below.

Most of Mondo’s poster releases are designed as strict limited edition runs. Last year, however, the company did a print for The Dark Knight Rises which was slightly less limited. The poster was made available through a “timed release,” where enough prints will be made to cover orders that come in during a specific time frame.
Mondo’s second timed release is going to be a Man of Steel print by Martin Ansin, which will be available for 72 hours beginning this Thursday night at midnight. (IE, in the first minute of Friday morning, CST.) There will be more severely limited versions of the Ansin print, and also one by Ken Taylor, seen above. All details are below. Read More »
If we’re lucky, every few months a poster is released that makes you step back from your computer and stare. A poster so gorgeous, fans and non-fans a like will bask in its beauty. Some previous examples are Olly Moss’s Star Wars posters, Ken Taylor’s Halloween poster, Tyler Stout’s Akira, Aaron Horkey’s There Will be Blood and now, you can add Tom Whalen‘s The Wizard of Oz to the list.
Whalen has long been a favorite, both here on /Film and in galleries across the country. Working consistently for Mondo and Gallery 1988 has helped the Pennsylvania-based artist develop quite a following and, as fantastic as his work always is, this poster – made for Mondo – takes the cake. It’s epic, evocative and sure to be incredibly difficult to obtain.
Check out the full image after the jump along with another new Whalen poster from, for the Looney Tunes short Knighty Knight Bugs, as well as two comic-themed posters for The Black Beetle by Francesco Francavilla. Read More »
This month, Paul Thomas Anderson is set to start filming his seventh feature film, Inherent Vice. For fans of the generally shy director, that’s reason enough to celebrate.

Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love and There Will Be Blood all are getting brand new posters this week, from a variety of artists, and you can check them out below. Read More »

Almost every day, Google changes their homepage in celebration of some occasion taking place on that day. The Google Doodles celebrate events such as holidays, anniversaries, and famous birthdays. The one for today, Wednesday May 8, is possibly the best ever.
May 8, 2013 would have been the 93rd birthday of Saul Bass, one of the most influential graphic designers in history. An Oscar-winning filmmaker in his own right, Bass is best known for designing iconic movie posters for the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and John Struges as well as the credits sequences for films as varied as Psycho, West Side Story, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, and Goodfellas.
Below, check out the Google Doodle tribute to Bass and read about another Bass tribute happening today. Read More »
