Audiences love a good coming of age story, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ film The Kings of Summer is a great one. It tells the story of three boys (Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Aries) who decide to run away from home and build their own house in the woods. The Sundance hit opens in New York and Los Angeles May 31, will expand from there and you should certainly seek it out. We’ve got a review of it here, one trailer here, and even an interview with co-star Nick Offerman here.

Three of Mondo’s biggest artists are currently collaborating for a gallery show in Long Beach, California. But it’s not Mondo, and the subject is not movies. Still, the frenzy that these guys have created with their work on films like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Alien, UHF, Bride of Frankenstein, Poltergiest and Bottle Rocket made the event something truly memorable. Almost a hundred people lined up seven hours before the opening. Prints worth thousands of dollars being signed. And gorgeous new work on display.
After the jump, check out images of A Distant Winter, a gallery show still on display at the Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach, CA and read a bit more about its artists: Martin Ansin, Ken Taylor and Rich Kelly. 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.
Hit the jump for a gallery of all six images. Read More »
