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 »
Featuring the talents of Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Cheech Marin, Danny Trejo and many more, you wouldn’t be breaking any ground in saying that From Dusk Till Dawn is beloved. Much like The Evil Dead films before it, From Dusk Till Dawn blends humor, horror and leading man machismo in an almost perfect balance, delivering a frantic, fun ride through a vampire infested strip club ending on a memorable teaser image.
Artist Rhys Cooper has now created another memorable image based on From Dusk Till Dawn and this one you can own. Inside The Rock Poster Frame exclusively premiered Cooper’s image which will be released by Tommy Good next week in both a regular and 100% unique bloodsoaked variant. Check out images of both, as well as Mondo‘s Werewolves on Wheels by Phantom City Creative and Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives by Chris Ware (yes, the one we posted about months ago) after the jump.

Hey! Remember the ’80s? Of course you do! Movies like The Goonies, The Princess Bride, Gremlins, Back to the Future, Krull and The Monster Squad got worn out in your VHS player as your penchant for film fandom either developed or blossomed. Everyone has their favorite films from the period and, fairly regularly, we feature outstanding art to back that statement up. Today is no different. Todd Brown of Twitch Film recently programmed a series of classic 1980s kids films in Toronto and had Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative design limited edition posters for the screenings. Sounds pretty standard, right? Wrong. Erickson’s prints were so limited that they never went on sale to the general public.
After wading through some legal red tape (meaning the removal of all proper names) Twitch and Phantom City Creative (who recently did that awesome Freaks & Geeks/Undeclared piece) can now legally sell all of these beautiful tributes to some of your favorite films of the Eighties. All the films mentioned above are represented along with The Last Starfighter, Time Bandits and The Dark Crystal. After the jump, check them all out and find out where you can purchase them.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
If you watch a lot of television, chances are you’ve heard of PaleyFest. And if not, here’s the scoop. Each year, PaleyFest is an event where some of the biggest shows on television assemble their casts and creative teams for in-depth discussions about the past, present and future of their shows. For 2011, shows like The Walking Dead, True Blood, Eastbound and Down, Community, Supernatural and others are all scheduled to participate and they’re even hosting a Judd Apatow TV reunion with nearly the full casts of Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared together on one night.
Plus, this year Gallery 1988 (which you know because they do the awesome pop culture related art shows that we regularly feature) has commissioned several artists to do limited edition screen prints for some of the events. Daniel Danger did a frightening take on The Walking Dead, DKNG Studios gets to the essence of True Blood (NOTE: limited remaining copies of this print are on sale now at Gallery1988.com) and we’re proud to be able to exclusively premiere Phantom City Creative‘s awesome poster for the Freaks and Geeks/Undeclared reunion. You can see a glimpse of it above but, after the jump, check out the whole thing along with The Walking Dead and True Blood. Read More »
