Video games and movies have gone hand in hand for a while. Movies have increasingly looked toward the gaming industry for inspiration and story properties, while video games have become increasingly cinematic as they stress good storytelling along with cool graphics and gameplay. That trend has spread into the art world too, where some of the most popular artists in the movie poster game have begun to make art based on video games.
Nowhere is that better seen than at the Los Angeles iam8bit gallery, which debuts its latest video game centric show on June 7: The iam8bit Entertainment System. Over 80 artists from across the globe have tackled all kinds of popular game properties. /Film is proud to give you a sampling of work in the show. We also have the exclusive debuts of work by artists Olly Moss, JC Richard and the team at Phantom City Creative. Each is probably best known for the work with Mondo or Gallery 1988, but here they’ve each tackled old-school video games with their own unique style and sensibility. Check out their work, and much more, below. Read More »

Human skin. Severed limbs. Hammers. Bones. Chainsaws. There’s no denying that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its terrifying character, Leatherface, have helped shape horror iconography.

New York Comic-Con has come and gone, bringing with it big movie news, TV news and lots and lots of collectibles. And while some booths chose to reveal their collectibles in advance, one that didn’t was the crew at Mondo. They preferred to keep their first trip to New York a well-kept secret until the convention opened on Thursday. Once that happened though, fans realized it was worth the wait as the famous poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse had brought posters from the Lord of the Rings, The Iron Giant, Shaun of the Dead, Kill Bill, Friday the 13th and more. That’s the good news. The better news is that not everything sold out so they’ll likely be online soon.

There are several impressive things about the latest poster in the Breaking Bad Art Project. First of all, the science textbook-influenced image is simple, clean and gorgeous. You’d expect nothing less from Phantom City Creative. Second, it’s so subtle that you really have to be a fan to get it. Anyone who hasn’t seen the show will have no idea what they’re looking at or what it means. Which is kind of genius because, if you do explain its significance, this poster references just about the biggest spoiler Breaking Bad has up to this point. Even so, this poster is so good that we can run the image, tell you generally what it means, and it still won’t spoil anything. Check out Phantom City Creative’s Lily of the Valley poster below.

You all know me as a bit of a poster freak so when I say this, know I’m not being hyperbolic. Mondo‘s poster for 13 Assassins, designed by Vania Zouravliov, is an early contender for poster of the year. Based on the awesome, bad-ass, insert positive adjective here samurai film by Takashi Miike, Zouravliov’s piece not only evokes a whole other time period, it pops with energy and emotion. It’s stunning. And it even comes in three colors.
Check out the variants after the jump, along with new Mondo posters for Rocky 3, Dragonslayer, The Hills Have Eyes and The Mole People. Yes, Mondo is on a bit of a cult kick after The Avengers and we like it. Read More »

If you’re already holding a ticket for your local IMAX 3D midnight screening of The Avengers, odds are you don’t need yet another reason to get pumped for the movie. But here’s something else to look forward to anyway: Fans who attend the 12:01 show will each receive a special limited-edition poster, which you can see after the jump.
Personally, though, I’m more impressed by the new batch of Mondo posters that’ll be going on sale this week. Following last week’s debut of Olly Moss‘ Black Widow and Tom Whalen‘s Hawkeye, the company has just unveiled four more for Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain America, and Thor, designed by four different artists. Hit the jump for a peek, as well as details on pricing and availability.

If there’s a genre that the guys at Mondo love to make posters for, it’s horror movies. And one film they’d never made a poster for, until today that is, was one of the greatest horror movies of all time: William Friedken‘s The Exorcist. Then, just to mix an old classic with one in the making, they’ve also revealed a poster for Drew Goddard‘s The Cabin in the Woods.
Both posters are by the fantastic Phantom City Creative and you can see them in their full glory, as well as find out when to buy them, after the jump. Read More »
