2015 is only a year away but you can have everyone’s favorite 2015 movie on your wall starting this Friday. Laurent Durieux, he of that excellent Die Hard poster, among others, is having his first solo art show at the Mondo Gallery in Austin TX on February 7. We’re delighted to debut one of the many pieces in the show: Back to the Future Part II.
We already knew Durieux, who flew in from Belgium for the show, did The Birds, Forbidden Planet and the first Back to the Future for the show (though that has yet to be revealed) but with this one image, he truly captures the time, place and tone of Robert Zemeckis‘ hit 1989 sequel. Check out both versions of the poster below. Read More »

My mind just exploded. Every year, the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas hosts a massive art exhibit during South by Southwest but, this year they’ve outdone themselves. They’re teaming with Oh My Disney for a show called Nothing’s Impossible, and it’s all art based on Disney properties.
The show opens March 7 and remains open until March 11. It’ll feature new works by Ken Taylor, Martin Ansin, Kevin Tong, Tom Whalen, Aaron Horkey, Daniel Danger, JC Richard, Mike Mitchell, just a murderer’s row of amazing artists. Only one piece has been revealed, Alice in Wonderland by Ken Taylor, which you can see in part above. Check it out in full below along with all the info. Read More »
Though two recent remakes have tarnished the original’s reputation a tad, the 1981 Clash of the Titans remains a cult classic. Featuring Ray Harryhausen’s final visual effects, the film follows a hero named Perseus on an epic quest pitting him against Gods and monsters. It’s total Eighties cheese, but that lends itself perfectly to artist interpretation. Which is where Mondo comes in, as the outfit has chosen the film for two posters to kick off its 2014 offerings. They also just announced a mysterious event called Mondo Con that’ll take place in Austin, TX September 20-21, smack dab in the middle of Fantastic Fest.

Mondo likes to end every year with a bang. And if Die Hard wasn’t enough, they’ve got one of their most popular artists to do one of the most popular films in history, and another to do one of the most popular holiday movies.
Aaron Horkey, who previously did There Will Be Blood and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, is back with Peter Jackson‘s The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and the image is stunning. Treebeard. Hobbits. Awesome. Not to be outdone, Mondo newcomer Adam Simpson has absolutely crushed a poster for Chris Columbus‘ Home Alone. They all go on sale Thursday. Check them out below.

“Please take off your shoes at the front door.” Was this a Japanese restaurant or a film screening? A sign with that request was on the door at the Crest Theater in Los Angeles Saturday night as Mondo host their eleventh Mystery Movie. The reason for shoe removal would become obvious seconds later as patrons entered the theater to see “glass” all over the floor. Yup, we were about to watch a 35mm print of John McTiernan‘s classic 1988 action film Die Hard and the glass on the floor was just one of the many surprises the Mondo team had in store, in addition to the poster.
Below, read more more and watch a video from the event. Plus, Mondo announces their latest gallery show, the first solo show of Laurent Durieux, featuring posters for The Birds, Forbidden Planet and Back to the Future. Read More »
Before Ben Affleck becomes Batman, he’s getting his own Mondo poster series. The company just revealed they’ve got a new series of limited edition prints coming up, based on the director’s previous films Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo. Here’s what the actor/director said about the company:
I’ve always loved Mondo and their passion for film, as well as their talented stable of artists. I was initially drawn by their ability to offer a unique perspective on so many beloved films and am thrilled to see my films become the newest additions to their work.
While we love the blockbuster and cult films the company usually targets, immortalizing Affleck’s small dramas feels likes a smart, surprising departure. Check out the images below. Read More »
