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 »
The worm is out of the sand. Mondo’s secret new gallery opened Saturday with a sci-fi themed show that left jaws on the floor and wallets extremely empty. Tyler Stout did his first Mondo poster since October, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn, Kevin Tong did Forbidden Planet, Martin Ansin kicked off a new Terry Gilliam Director’s Series with Brazil, Jay Shaw did David Cronenberg right with The Fly and Crimes of the Future, Phantom City Creative went all George Melies with A Trip to the Moon and much, much more: Akira, Dune, War of the Worlds, Planet of the Apes, The Fountain, Real Steel, it goes on and on, 38 in total. Check out those image and more after the jump. Read More »
Ask any poster fan what two films they’d like Mondo to make posters for and the answers are very likely to be Ghostbusters and Back to the Future. The former might take a while (as you can read here) but the latter is now a reality. Mondo has just revealed their first ever Back to the Future poster. But it isn’t just one image; it’s three. Phantom City Creative has designed three different posters that, when framed together, form an image of the Delorian. There’s also a variant that assembles the three images into one poster. Check them out after the jump. Read More »
Mondo might bruise a few wallets tomorrow. The company has partnered with Sideshow Collectibles and a handful of notable poster artists to produce a set of posters for the Planet of the Apes Films. There are five prints in the series, one for each of the primary classic films. (Planet, Beneath, Escape, Conquest and Battle — sorry, Tim Burton remake fans and Rise of the Planet of the Apes lovers.)
The five prints will be sold as a set online tomorrow, Thursday January 26, with a sixth bonus print included. The price is $230; not bad at all for a Mondo poster set. Any remainders not sold as sets tomorrow will go up for sale on Friday; Sideshow Collectibles will eventually offer variants of each print on the Sideshow website. The artists are Martin Ansin, Ken Taylor, Rich Kelly, Phantom City Creative and Florian Bertmer. If you purchase the entire set of five, you will also receive the GO APE! poster painted by Jason Edmiston.

As much as Mondo loves putting out posters for movies of all shapes and sizes, they always show favoritism towards the horror genre. So while a classic film like Blade Runner only has one poster, The Evil Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare on Elm Street each have several. Plus, you never know when they’ll drop a poster for an awesome, random horror film like The Gate, Maniac Cop 2, Critters or Dead Alive. That makes October their holiday season.
Mondo’s latest batch of posters, available at a random time on Thursday October 20, is all that and a bag of tricks. In honor of the month of October, Phantom City Creative has made posters for Trick ‘R Treat, Sleepaway Camp and The Burning. Check them out after the jump. Read More »

What you’ve got to love about Mondo is that while they often do posters for big Hollywood blockbusters like Cowboys & Aliens or Star Wars, they’ve built their reputation on posters for really small, cult, genre movies. Some of my personal favorites are posters for The Monster Squad, The Evil Dead and on Thursday they’re releasing two more. After the jump, check out the full posters for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Read More »
