What’s better than seeing Steven Spielberg‘s classic action adventure film Jurassic Park on the big screen once again? Not knowing about it and getting an amazing, extremely limited edition poster to go along with it. Mondo, the poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse, had their second Mondo Mystery Movie Wednesday night and after weeks of speculation and misdirection (the website hinted at a sequel that ran 134 minutes), the film ended up being Jurassic Park. But not only was mystery movie Jurassic Park with a brand new poster, that poster – by Aaron Horkey – is the first in a series Mondo is doing themed around the film.
After the jump get a good look at this first-in-a-series that will only ever be sold (at retail cost at least) to tonight’s sold out audience. Read More »
Not only does Friday bring the opening of Cowboys & Aliens, Jon Favreau‘s latest film, it brings three brand new, limited edition posters based on the film from Mondo. The poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse teamed up with the Iron Man director to curate and art direct a series of posters based on the film and the results are wildly different and incredibly attractive. After the jump, check out the posters by Daniel Danger, Tom Whalen and Janée Meadows. Read More »
Monday, we exclusively premiered Mondo’s Tyler Stout posters for Captain America: The First Avenger. They were bold, brash, and exactly the kind of beautiful busy style we’ve come to expect from Stout. We also mentioned that, in addition to Stout’s Captain America posters, Mondo would be releasing additional Cap posters by /Film favorites, Eric Tan and Olly Moss. Besides being inspired by the same movie, the differences between Stout’s posters and these couldn’t be more significant. For one, Moss and Tan didn’t make movie posters. They each made a set of World War II propaganda posters, one for the Americans and one for Hydra. Which do you side with? Check out all the images and decide after the jump. Read More »
Mondo and Captain America: The First Avenger are taking over San Diego Comic-Con. The limited edition poster boutique of the Alamo Drafthouse, whose prints are now being archived by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, has six brand new Cap themed posters: two by Eric Tan, two by Olly Moss and two by Tyler Stout.
One of the premiere poster artists on the market today, Stout’s detailed, jam-packed prints can go for upwards of $2,000 a piece and his art was recently used for the cover of Marvel’s Captain America: First Vengeance #4. Now he’s expanded that image into a jaw-dropping representation of the upcoming Joe Johnston film. Check out both images after the jump. Read More »
Paramount Pictures has a couple awesome projects in the works this week with Mondo. First up, on Wednesday, comic book stores everywhere will get in copies of Captain America: First Vengeance #4 with cover artwork by fan-favorite artist Tyler Stout. You can see a hint of that above.

Three thousand copies of the original will be handed out exclusively to attendees of special Tuesday June 28 screenings at Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles, CA and a variant edition will be sold on @MondoNews Wednesday June 29. See images of all these pieces after the jump. Read More »
Mondo has just released the final two posters in their Guillermo Del Toro Director’s Series and, big surprise, they’re gorgeous. Artists Vania Zouravliov and Aaron Horkey have teamed up to make a poster for Del Toro’s 2001 film The Devil’s Backbone, and Martin Ansin has created a poster for Del Toro’s directorial debut, Cronos. The Devil’s Backbone, available in three different versions, goes on sale Friday and Cronos will be sometime later. Check out the full images of all of them after the break. Read More »
If you know anything about artist Shepard Fairey or John Carpenter‘s film They Live, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a better marriage of artist and material. For the first time ever, the Alamo Drafthouse and their art boutique Mondo were able to get Fairey to create a poster and, of course, they chose They Live, which is screening Thursday night in Austin. Fairey predictably knocked it out of the park with an image that encompasses both his dogma and the movie’s.
After the jump check out the full image, find out when you can buy it and read about Fairey’s connection with the film.

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
If you read our exclusive interview with Olly Moss, you know that even the artists are aware how difficult it is to acquire a Mondo print these days. It’s especially difficult when there are only 185 of the things but that’s the print run of Kevin Tong‘s poster for Kim Ji-Woon‘s bloody revenge film I Saw The Devil, which is now out on Blu-ray and DVD. We’ve been buzzing about the film for months but, unfortunately, it didn’t fair too well at the box office. Hence the small print run. Still, once you see the movie, you are going to want this poster. Check out the full image, courtesy of JoBlo, after the break. Read More »
