But I may have to psyche myself into seeing Winchester, the new horror film starring Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke, when it comes out on Friday. In the meantime, we’re hosting a giveaway of prints of an alternate poster for the movie that was designed by celebrated artist Daniel Danger, who’s done some incredible work for companies like Mondo over the years. Take a look at the full poster and learn how to enter our Winchester giveaway below!

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 »
